It’s time for a break

Father in heaven, I know it’s time for this so I ask for Your presents to go before this post and help all of us reading it to understand the why behind it. In Jesus name, Amen…

 

I have some news I’d like to share with my table family here. I have recently shared with you that my family and I have dreamed of moving south for many years.

 

My husband and I have prayed and searched for Gods plans in this dream. God answered this prayer when Jeremy got his “dream job” with a company in Florida. We rejoiced in this news and quickly began making plans.

 

We searched on line for houses, we started collecting boxes, and we gently broke the news to our families that we were moving across the country.

 

My husband went down to start work right away with the plans for us to follow in a couple months after our daughter graduated and we tied up all the loose ends here.

 

But sometimes plans and dreams change.

 

Job 1:21  …the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

 

God must have seen something down the line that we could not or maybe would not see. He has awaken us from this dream. He has put this back on the shelf so to speak, and so now I feel the need to search for Him in a new way. A deeper way. Reading… studying… and praying.

 

My dear readers, I need to take a leave of absence for a time. I’m not sure for how long but I feel that a month is what God is laying on my heart.

 

I need to evaluate what He is asking of me. I will be taking this leave from social media as well.

 

I have many christian women that I follow on social media and they have from time to time taken this type of sabbatical to reset. I feel that I need this sabbatical now. I so appreciate all of you and hope that you will keep your seat at the table and wait for me to return.

 

I will be checking my Email and responding as needed. I’m so grateful for all of you! Truly I am.

 

I want to find out what journey God has me on and for what purpose. I want to be able to fulfill that purpose and be a better writer and speaker and whatever else God may have planned.

 

I’ll see you all in a month. With tears I say I’ll miss all of you for this month. Keep the table set for me okay? I love you all!

  1. Oh Cindy
    I so empathize with you, in the waiting God is still working your story out!
    Isn’t it amazing how HE still provides manna in our wilderness.?
    He maybe saying no, wait, or I have other plans for you.
    Whatever it is we can count on the fact He is always good!
    My prayers are with you, you have been so faithful to pray for our situation.
    His timing is always perfect.
    ♥️🙌♥️

    1. Annie my plan is to draw nearer to God in this process. Any time we have a trial, we should run into our Fathers arms. When we were children, if there was a bully, we would often run from that bully and straight into our daddy’s arms for protection. (this of course is if we had a trusting loving father) Our heavenly Fathers’ arms are awaiting His children so I will let Him enfold me and teach me His ways. I pray you keep your seat at the table and maybe even do some catch up reading from past posts if you haven’t had a chance to do that. I treasure your comments and I treasure you sweet Annie. See ya soon.
