Documenting God's Goodness Countdown Day 9

And Jebez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain." So God granted him what he requested.

Life is busy! Packing with two young kids underfoot is well.......impossible!

During the day I'm busy with the kids and making calls and checking online for new listings. We still have no place to go and the tower of boxes is getting higher and higher along my walls!

At night is when the real fun begins! I put the kids down around 8pm and start packing. I first tried to pack during the day but soon find myself about to pull my hair out. Once again I cried out to the Lord asking "what have I done??? how am I going to get all this packed??? how is this supposed to work???" Well who knew the Holy Spirit would take a hand in packing! This whole process I feel the spirit with me so strongly, guiding me and give me wisdom. Very quickly I felt Him prod me in the direction I should go. Pack at night, and so I am. Amazingly He gives me strength and I've been praising Him as I pack!

As for where we are going, right now we are looking for a place to rent with the idea we'll take our time to buy. But there's not many options out there. We looked at a place yesterday and have an appointment tonight to look at something else.

There are moments of shear panick and fear but this where I'm praying that the hand of the Lord be with me. No matter what happens, no matter where we end up all I ask is that His hand is with me! Even if things go bad, that doesn't mean He's not in charge. It just means He's got something for me to learn!

And I'm ready for what He's got!

I'm so glad you're chronicling this segment in your life. It's exciting. This will be a victory. This will be something you can look back on during the NEXT trial. (Isn't that how life works?) LOL, but true. That's how David faced Goliath. He looked back on his past victories with the lion and the bear and it gave him courage.

If I were with you, I'd help you pack. Love, Mom

I bumped into your blog, and I can't remember where. I really enjoy reading about your walk with God and the daily lessons He is teaching you. I am also a christian mother with 3 boys and a boy on the way. Testimony: when we moved to our present location, we also had no place to live. We were planning on using a storage facility and checking into a hotel if nothing turned up. After looking for several months with no success, my husband finally found this place (by the grace of God) the week before our scheduled move. I saw it for the first time as we unloaded everything into the house and then signed the rental agreement later that evening. "God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform." I will be praying that the right place will be found ASAP!!!!
