Ointment and perfume delight the heart, and the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel. – Proverbs 27:9 NKJV
I miss seeing my friends in person. When I moved, I didn’t really think about the impact it might have on my life to not have the same weekly interactions with my friends whom I was used to spending time with.
It is a weight not to have friends or try to replace friends just because I am in a new location.
The advice my friends gave me when I was close by is just as good as the counsel that they give me when I am far away. Friendship is forever and God blesses us with good people in our lives. It is up to us to show love and maintain our friendships. Amen.
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. – Romans 5:5 NIV
The Holy Spirit is a manifestation of God’s love. He helps us when we are disappointed. He guides us when we are in transition. Our Lord gives us hope.
Instead of focusing on our problems, we can fixate on our blessings.
Today is moving day into my new home in Idaho. It is okay to be busy and have a lot to do. God can always give us just enough strength that we need to get what we need to do done. Amen.
The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. – Jeremiah 31:3 KJV
The Lord’s love for us lasts forever. He will never get tired of loving us. He will never be too busy to hear our prayers.
Our God is kind. He made us good. When we find ourselves wondering how we will handle all the changes in our lives, we can simply stop and remember that we can always trust Him.
Transitions can feel uncertain. When we move to a different state, the roads are unfamiliar, but God always knows where He is going. He is never unsure where He is leading us. His GPS never has to recalculate, because He is always on track. Jesus is the Good Shepherd and makes sure we won’t get lost. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18-19 KJV
As my family embarks on a new journey by moving from Nevada to Idaho, I reflect on the new blessings that God has brought into my life.
Even though I tested positive for COVID-19 on September 1, 2020 and suffered from COVID-19 long haulers symptoms, surviving the ordeal has strengthened my faith and brought me closer to God. I am grateful that my husband was able to stay home during my recovery to take care of me and Jacob. I am thankful that my husband was able to find an Executive Director job in Idaho. Our house in Nevada sold within three hours of listing it, and we were able to buy a duplex in Blackfoot, ID.
Instead of remembering how difficult my illness seemed at the time, I am grateful for the new opportunities that God has brought into our lives. He makes way for new blessings. Amen.
