Not because its July but because I am in the refiners fire. I think He has turned up the heat in here.
About a month after we got here to the ranch, all felt that it was best for many different reasons to put the ranch on the market. It was on the market last year for six months and there was NOT ONE call...nope, not one person interested. Well, its been on the market for three weeks and last week got a call for a family from Waco. They asked to come see the property and they came to view everything on Friday. They liked it a lot and they came back again on Monday. They havent given an offer, but still the prospect of more transition is refining my character.
I woke up this morning with this song on my heart, "Lord, not my will but your will let this be my cry. I lay down everything, I give my life to you."
What will we do, you may ask? God has some things in the works. Some of which I cannot talk about yet, but He is good. Oh yes, He is good. Regardless of what I can see, He knows.
I covet your prayers. For His will. For less of me and much more of Him.
I watched this clip a few weeks ago and again this morning. This is my anthem...I will worship. Regardless. He is worthy.
Last night, we were watching Jimmy's sermon at Gateway recently. Isaac was totally mesmerized. I had to get the video camera because it was hilarious. To give you an idea, he will watch Praise Baby or Baby Eistein for about two minutes and then he is done. After about 15 minutes of listening, Joe tried to turn him around and he practically threw out his neck to crane it around to hear the rest of what God was speaking to His little spirit :) I know I have reaped the fruit of many of you who have prayhed for our little man. I am so grateful...bless you 100 fold.
Here is a little glimpse...
"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed yet my unfailing love for you will not shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,' Says the Lord who has compassion on you." Isaiah 54:10
**UPDATE: I cannot tell you how much I have felt your prayers. You girls must have some seriously special connections with God! Truly, this week has been the best spiritually and emotionally for me, all glory to Him and eternal thanks to you for lifting me up in prayer! After laying down our future many times over (there were truly pros and cons to both sides of the coin), they called to let us know they found another ranch near Dallas (ironically) that they liked better due to location :). Again, I cannot thank you enough...bless you!
