With that being said, we enter into the scary place we have been in before: LIMBO. We were in this position at the exact same time last year, when we were waiting to hear whether or not we would get to be team leaders. Only this time around, we are trying to sell our house (our house in Dothan is on the market...any takers?) AND trying to find another job (anyone need an amazing, dynamic, hard-working, Jesus-loving worship leader?). Come June, we will officially be "homeless" and jobless.
I have come to accept the fact that God puts us in positions like this on purpose. I am terrified by all the "what ifs" in this scenario. What if Jay can't find a job? What if we have to move home with our parents? What if we can't sell our house and are stuck with this mortgage FOREVER? But this year, God just keeps reminding me that His grace is sufficient. That no matter what happens, no matter what may go wrong, He is more than enough for me. If my Father granted my every whim and desire, I might lean on my own strength instead of His. These "obstacles" may be exactly what I need to realize that, no matter how much I want to, I can't fix everything.
I am doing this amazing Bible study on my own right now called Experiencing the Heart of Jesus, by Max Lucado. In it he writes, "For all we don't know about thorns, we can be sure of this: God would prefer we have an occasional limp than a perpetual strut. And if it takes a thorn for Him to make His point, He loves us enough not to pluck it out...A few stumbles might be what you need to convince you: His grace is sufficient." And no matter what, His grace will be sufficient for us.
