How about a little story?
So we moved into this little piece of Heaven on earth a month ago.
To many people it’s just a trailer on someone else’s dream farm but to us it’s home. Wherever Paul and I are it’s home because we are modern day nomads.
We move to where ever a job takes us.
We are not poor gypsies going from town to town trying to see what we can take but we try to see what we can give and in return we gain more humility than you can imagine, only because we know where we came from and we know where we are going and this earth is not our final destination.
We are Wanderers but we are not lost because we place our faith in God because He’s the greatest GPS and we fully trust Him!
Many have asked over our 4 years together why we don’t get a real job, why don’t we buy a house and I just stay and Paul go work and come home.
Why do you have two storage units and keep buying more?
Why this and why that! Paul’s career is an amazing story to me and yesterday we were talking about folks who does not believe in God and Paul said you know “I always thought I made my own way and in my career; that I went from a high school diploma to where I am because of my own hard work and abilities but the last 4 years I realize it’s God’s Grace and favor that has lead me to this place and this new company and job! The truth is it’s not me at all”. God’s divine plan for our life has brought us to Iowa, La .
I myself have gifting’s that are unique and I am amazed when I write something, create something, try something or follow a little dream.
I was painting this morning and I was thinking about what to call this new venture, what my mission/vision/ plan is? I thought I might ask others then God began to speak to my heart and say ” Doris Lynn I will reveal and it will unfold just as I have planned and just do what your doing”.
I feel grateful to be able to hear and know God’s voice speaking to my heart.
Yesterday another voice came on like a flood… The speaker of condemnation, guilt and shame came visiting me. I was over tired, frustrated with myself and the liar came a calling and I picked up the phone and my morning was filled with let’s just say crying and words about me, to me out loud and for Paul to hear.
I have not had that happen in well over a year. All I can say is get the behind me satan … You are a liar!
I have a few things to write and share that are awesome things straight from God and I am ready to get on with whatever this next is …
This morning I am working on my little Art Studio… 🎨🎨
Creating with God in that little room will be a blessing but right now I sit on my back porch swing listening to the birds chirp, the peacock hollar, and the rain hit the tim roof of the patio.
Paradise to me the girl who never stopped to really smell a rose or enjoy the sounds around me that God created…
Have a great day and I am praying that God will speak to your heart this morning like he has to me!
Long ago I hoped I would live like this and my Hope was not Wasted!
