Worth the Wait

 

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Have you ever prayed for something for such a long time that you started to wonder if God was listening?

  The longer the wait, the shorter my faith.

Shame on me.

It was 17 years ago this spring that I had to make the incredibly difficult decision to stay put while my dad and brothers moved away.  I was a scared 17 year old girl, about to become a mama for the first time.  I didn’t want the type of life for my baby that I had grown up with.  Letting my little brothers go without me literally tore my heart out and took me years to get past.  Looking back, I know I made the right decision but a piece of my heart traveled with them and I have never gotten it back.

I have prayed and longed to live closer to my brothers.  Since my dad and I reunited in 2009, that desire has grown stronger.  And, I have prayed some more.

A few New Year’s ago, as the hubby and I had our annual retreat to write down our goals and dreams for the future, he agreed that when all the kids were gone we would move.

Then this year, knowing the longing in my heart and because God was stirring in his, he said “let’s just go”.  We thought that would mean moving in about a year and a half.  But, God!

On May 31st, we are officially beginning our new adventure.

Florida, here we come!  And, I can’t wait to share the story of how God is moving to get us there so fast! That is a post for another day 🙂

I will desperately miss my precious friends {who have become like family} in West Virginia.  I will be sad to say good bye to my co-workers and my YoungLives mama’s.  But, I am literally jumping up and down inside!

God has granted a desire of my heart.  I can’t wait to see what He has in store for us there.
