It's been a long few weeks...Christmas brought my parents and lots of site seeing and eating and just having fun being together. I have tons of pics to go through...lots of awesome places that we found. But....my heart is just in a rut....I miss my family. ...I miss my friends... I miss my Church... I thought that taking this giant leap of faith to move down here was going to fix everything. Like some magic curtain would unveil this promise land just waiting for us. Instead, we seem to find one hurdle after another. What the heck?!?!? My sister sent me the book The Circle Maker for Christmas. We had done a service on it last year or so, but I needed it now. So, I'm digging in my heels....marking my spot and praying through this! It's funny how God speaks to me sometimes....I wonder if he ever shakes his head and thinks Someday she'll get this...Someday! He really laid it on my heart that once the Israelites crossed into the Promised Land, they still had battles to fight! God didn't just throw them the keys and say Have Fun... He did say that he had given them the land...their battle was won...just had some work to do. Crossroads always starts their year with prayer and fasting....the timing is perfect and the need is great. So, I'll be doing a Daniel fast for the next 10 days....if no answer comes about then I'm going to keep pressing through I've had the veggie tales song Keep Walking in my head for the last few days and that's just what I'm going to do...keep Walking till God knocks down this wall!!!! A quick side note to my friends back home...we are doing ok..seeing God move every day....just not in the way I had thought.....but when is that ever our case!
