"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light." 1 Peter 2: 9 NIV
This verse is simple and may not seem all that meaningful at first but the more I started thinking and praying about where God has brought me in this phase of my life I realize I need to remember one thing, I am His child! The great anticipation and excitement I have for life in Texas comes from the LORD. The darkness and despair that I am merging out of is only from Him.
I cannot begin to tell you the relief and healing that happened simply driving away. Not away from bad things or a bad place but just driving to a destination unknown. I have a brand new sense of adventure and excitement now that I did not have when we moved to Dover. God really has been moving in my heart. Now I cannot say that I am confident or at all sure of where we are going and what life will be like there. In fact, many times when I think about it I get a huge knot in my stomach. But the difference is I can look back and where I came from and see that Yes, God was guiding me just like He did with the people of Israel.
