What's Next, Lord?

How many times do I ask that question? And how many times do I not get an answer - when I want the answer? Yet, whether I see Him moving or not, He is orchestrating my life (along with my husband) and getting our next destination ready for us. We just have to wait for the final pieces to be put in place.

Dan is going to have to wait a few months before he finds out about what his employer will offer him before he takes the layoff, if that is his choice. Then that will give us an idea of where we will be living - either here or somewhere else. I'm not excited about moving from San Luis Obispo. This has been my home since I was 10 years old. My kids grew up here. My best friend lives here, along with other friends. My officemates are the best and I don't think I could find a better place to work than where I am now. A mix of people with different personalities, different backgrounds, different stages in life...and we all get along so well. I will miss that...I've been there 12 years and have seen many changes, but each time it seems to get better.

But who knows better than God, what is best for us and where He wants us to minister next? We will be moving in with Dan's mom for a few months and as of November 1, Dan will be jobless. Or he might have another job by then, but he can't take another job till that date. In the meantime, God is totally taking care of us, as always, and we will see what He has in store for us. I pray wherever He takes us, that we will be able to find a church family to be involved with; to find a place to do ministry together.

So, what's next? God only knows and I trust Him fully.
