Unplanned

"Standing on a road I didn’t plan”

Plumb // Need You Now

I'm living that line right now. Maybe your two feet are planted firmly on that road too. Actually, I don’t know anyone who is standing on a road they did plan.

In a weird way that’s reassuring.

I’m introspective today because I moved to a new house this weekend. I went from renting to owning.  As a single mom it feels gargantuan, and very scary.  I almost backed out of the deal several times because I was afraid that it would be too hard and would complicate my life too much. I wondered if I should just take the safe route, and stay.

After a whirlwind weekend of cleaning, moving, unpacking, and getting dead stinky rats out of my new attic, I wish I could go back and tell that girl that was so scared to just chill out.  Just trust God girl!

You think you have it so good, then you take a scary step forward and you realize how much you were limiting yourself because of fear. Maybe that’s why the bible repeats over and over again don’t be afraid

Oh God, help us see beyond our safe place and step into the abundant life you have called us to! Help us to not freak out and instead live a courageous life.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned." -Isaiah 43:2

Prayer: Be Brave

Father, thank you for change. Thank you for the unexpected turn. Please help us not freak out when it happens! 

Your word reminds us we don't have to be afraid even "though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea." (Psalm 46:2)

When life feels like it's falling apart God, remind us that it might be time for us to move out of our cozy safe life and be brave. Today God, we step into the abundant life you have called us to live! I want the life of unexpected turns that brings me closer to You. -In Jesus name, Amen.
