I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future

We never really seem to end up where we think we will in life.

God has such greater plans that we know, and we make so many more mistakes than we think we will. It all evens out to mean that we can never predict how our lives will turn out.

I grew up thinking I would always live in my hometown. Nate has thought that we would move to Colorado for a long time. Neither of us thought that where we live now would be the place we would end up.

We still don't know what God has in store for us. We looked at a house in town yesterday, but Nate is also checking out some possible jobs in Colorado to see if he would still want to work out there.

I can see our lives going both ways. Do you stay with what's familiar or do you go for something new? What are pros and what are cons? What will you regret in the future? Where will you be able to serve God the best? Where will you be able to afford life?

There's a lot of questions. However, I have to say that I'm glad that God is in control. I don't how people live without believing in a heavenly father who loves them and is in control. I wouldn't be able to live without knowing that I have someone who is bigger than me, because I suck at making decisions. I need someone to guide my life and make sure that it turns into something, that I make a difference somehow.

So any prayers for our future would be appreciated, clarity to know where we're supposed to go and what we're supposed to do.

Wherever we end up though, I'm just glad that I have Nate by my side.

  1. I have been praying for this decision for you and Nate. My prayer is that God's Will would be done and that Nate would be able to discern what that is.
