It's been much too long since I've posted anything! Even though this won't be much of a post, I wanted to at least update all of you and ask for your prayers this week.
Since I posted last, I mentioned we were taking serious steps towards moving. Nothing has really changed there, but there have been some road-blocks that have made us question exactly what God wants us to do. This week we will get an answer about our loan and finances, which will determine the direction we take in regard to moving and when. To make things even more interesting, this is the same week my husband's parents will return from down south. For those of you who know the whole situation, you know this isn't good news. Their return means added stress, drama, dysfunction and abuse for our family. We will immediately be thrown back into our "prison" and have to look over our shoulders when we're outside around our house and when we're out-and-about around the area to avoid a major confrontation. The same goes for my husband. Instantly, his work-place will become a war zone instead of a predictable place of business. I'm asking for your prayers in regard to everything with selling our house, the farm's future and God's will for our lives. We're praying for godly wisdom and the strength to do what God wants. Please pray for God's grace and protection around us when they return. There is something that happens spiritually around here when they return and it's very heavy, dark and oppressive. With everything with my rape, it's very difficult not having a "safe place" and having to feel ready for an attack at any given moment. Unless you've been through trauma, it's hard to understand or explain. Everything with my husband's family is hard enough, but then when you throw in trauma aftermath, it makes it even harder. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated!
I'm still working on the "Waiting on the Lord" post. I hope to finish with that in the next week or two. Hopefully I can update you on everything else going on at that point, too.
Thanks and God Bless!

Have you heard?! We’re taking serious steps towards moving! By the end of the week, we should have a ‘For Sale’ sign up in our yard and will be praying our house sells sooner than later. We’re dealing on about three houses and are leaving the whole situation in God’s hands. He made it very clear last week that He wants us to move. We just don’t know when or where exactly yet. In the meantime, I’ll be focusing on cleaning and packing and getting ready to move, hopefully sooner than later. As a result, I probably won’t be able to post every weekend like I have in the past. Until things settle down, I will post when I can.
Just so you know, I’m in the process of researching on a post I’d like to do about waiting on God. It’s really helped me as WE wait for further instructions on God’s will for our lives. I will continue to work on that topic and eventually post it at some point in the future. Until then, take care!
P.S. If you’d like to make sure that you get my posts whenever I post something, please sign up to receive my posts via email (sign up in the space to the right).
