I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
I often think I know what I want, but at times I know better than to even trust my wants. So I’ve gone back and forth: I don’t want to move… but maybe there’s something for us in DC… or somewhere else… and I just can’t see it yet… so maybe I should want to move?? I do believe I know what Rhema needs and that is to stay right here. But God knows better than me, and I want His will.
So the husband and I said, ‘We’ll knock hard on the Massachusetts door, for our daughter’s sake. And if it doesn’t open, we’ll go, trusting that He’ll make a place for us wherever we go.’
God opened a door.
Months ago we were told that there was absolutely no way we could get assigned to MA. (I’ve actually heard that before – we were told the same thing in 2006 and 2008. I’ve come to know that with God, our El Elyon, nothing is impossible.)
We researched, we wrote letters, the director of Rhema’s school wrote a letter, we had meetings, we petitioned all the way up to the Office of the Surgeon General of the Army. We fought hard, and we had a divine Advocate that made all the difference. Again.
We’re not moving!!!
The Army has given us a two-year assignment in Boston.
Don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
God is good, y’all.
