Well, I haven’t posted since I announced that our house was for sale last week. :(
Mainly because I was in Nashville with the kids most of this past week, AND because when I got home, I had to get busy keeping the house clean and showing it to prospective buyers.
Selling a house is no joke.
It’s actually kind of scary.
It made me think of something my son, Jonathan, said recently. I was talking to him about all of the cool stuff happening for him in Nashville right now. Y’all, he has been in songwriting rooms with some of the biggest songwriters in Nashville. Guys and gals who have had MANY number one hits and written songs for people like Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Dan and Shay, Carrie Underwood, Justin Bieber, and more. IT’S CRAZY!!
Remember now… Jonathan is only 19! And I am amazed as his confidence and poise when he is around these big names. I remember asking him, “Jonathan! How are you not freaking out when you walk in those rooms?!! I would be dying!”
To which he answered, “Well Mom. I try not to think about it too much. They are people just like me. But mainly, I KNOW that God’s plan for me is to share the gift of music that He has given me with others. So when I walk in those rooms, I know that I am just stepping into His plan for me. That gives me peace.”
Just stepping into God’s plan.
And God’s plan is always good for us. Doesn’t mean it will be easy or without trial and heartache, but it is always good.
Selling our house right now can bring us fear and anxiety, but we know that we are doing what we feel God is calling us to do. So if we know that it is HIS plan, then we can step into His plan with peace in our hearts. One step at a time.
The fear of the unknown might still be there, but HIS PEACE IS GREATER. And although we don’t know exactly what our future is going to look like, HE DOES, and we can rest in that.
Friends, life is hard and full of hard decisions. Sometimes those decisions can be full of fear. But I am praying today that God will fill your heart with His Peace as you step into HIS plan for your life.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a very well known and popular verse, but it is actually the verses that follow that I love the most….
“In those days, when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me, wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
May we always pray and seek Jesus wholeheartedly! It is there that we will find Him and His Peace.
Have a blessed Sunday, friends!
