Last year was a different year for Tim and me. In the fall of 2016, Tim was offered a job in South Carolina. Our first instinct was there was no possible way we could leave our family in Kentucky.
God had different ideas.
We couldn't fathom God would ask us to move at the beginning of our empty nest years. But He did. So, we moved. March 1, 2017 was our first offical day living in South Carolina.
Two big lessons we learned this year were if God calls you need to say yes. He doesn't promise it will be easy to obey his call, but He won't leave or forsake you.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 3:16 NIV
The other lesson we learned, the Holy Spirit will go ahead of you. If you're called to minister to others, He will prepare them for you. So many people tell me how much Tim has touched their lives since we moved to South Carolina. He's a man of integrity and tries his best to be a representative of God's light to others. It's been a hard year for many reasons. We faced challenges. But we've persevered. We even weathered a hurricane scare.
Lamentations 3:21-24 ESV "But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him.”"
God is good and merciful. We're thankful for 2017, and we're looking forward to an even better 2018.
