For some reason, our plans have a funny way of never being used – as if our life has chosen us rather than it being the other way around.
For the past year, we thought we were moving to a new city because of Tommy’s job. But here we sit with our house on the market, a list of unanswered questions as to where we are headed next, and looking back on a year of waiting for something to happen that never fully developed.
It served as a great reminder that we are basically in control of little in our lives. Not knowing the future is kind of unsettling, but yet settling at the same time. There is nothing we can do about it but wait to see what is revealed to us when the time comes.
Maybe we were meant to stay here, in a smaller house that doesn’t own us like our current house does. Maybe we are still meant to go elsewhere, because you don’t really learn who you are and what you are made of until you leave home, right?
One thing I know for sure – going through the process of getting ready to change everything in your life helps to decide what you need to keep and what has to go. It’s like packing up your house for a move – you realize that there are many things that you are better off leaving behind.
So, for now, we continue to embrace the art of knowing nothing, and rest in the fact that God is preparing a place for us.
And I guess we can wait to see it.
