My heart is full of PEACE!

I have so much on my mind, so many BIG changes to come in the very near future for our family.  I have never been so at PEACE with a BIG decision as I am right now.

In the last year and a half my life has been FILLED with stress, to the point where the smallest change could send me into a full anxiety attach.  I had learned how to cope but I knew coping was not what God wants for us.  He wants us to flourish in all of our challenges of life.  It is so hard to see that the worldly things that bring us so much stress and discomfort are not the things that matter to God, we put that importance on them.

I have been having a conversation for months with God going something like this; Ok God, if you do this I will do that.  Of course, just as it would be when we don't trust God to take care of things nothing in the situation was changing.  You ask yourself why won't it change and then a few weeks ago I finally realized it was God telling me to have faith and do this and then He will take care of the rest.

I know there are a lot of hidden information in this post that I can't yet share but let me tell you it is going to be such a different world for us and I can't wait.  When you know that you are doing what God is calling you to do it is amazing the PEACE that fills your heart.

I am so blessed by God.  My heart is so full!

  3. Good morning, Mandie - I just dropped in to "meet" you. Peace. Isn't it always the way that we KNOW He is control, yet we still try to tell Him how to do it! I can't wait to see how He leads you in the life He has planned for your family! Donna
