A Promise Whispered

We are quickly approaching our 3 year anniversary of moving to Tennessee! I was recently telling some friends about our move here and it got me thinking about that day. January 23, 2021. The day God whispered the sweetest promise to our hearts and we knew we had found our home.



2020 was a horrible year, but for us it had noting to do with the pandemic. We were broken. I was on a path of destruction and death. I truly thought my life was over. I even devised that plan, but praise be to God that He saved me. We made significant changes and placed our lives and our marriage in Jesus's hands. And y'all... He is so good. He restored. He redeemed.


We prayed that 2021 would hold healing but we had no idea what that would look like. But God did.



We took an impromptu trip to visit our friends and their precious new baby girl. During this trip we drove around checking out the city and just for fun decided to look at some houses that were for sale. I don't think either of us will forget the first time we drove up the driveway of our now home. It was truly indescribable. Somehow we both knew this was our new home. I snapped the picture above as Jordan walked towards the house and in this moment I was in tears while God whispered a promise to my heart.



I don't know if you have ever experienced anything like that before but there was no doubting it was God. The promise was beautiful and images of our future seemed to flash before my eyes. We both felt it. So we took a leap of faith and reached out to a realtor on Zillow. God orchestrated the most amazing realtor who went above and beyond for us. She agreed to meet us bright & early the next morning before we had to head back to Indiana. The affirmation of His promise came again the next day. But we had a lot of work to do in order to get this house.


We immediately started applying for jobs and worked to get our house listed back in Indiana. 2 weeks later we both had job offers, our house sold, and our offer on this home was accepted here. I'm sorry but no one will ever convince me that God was not moving us here.



Fast-forward to today. Our gracious and loving Lord has restored what was broken. Redeemed us. Showed us how to work together by giving us the desire to build a farm from scratch. Showed us how to be good listeners and communicators. Showed us the power of His love and forgiveness. Showed us the beauty in obedience. Showered us with His love and showed us how to truly love each other. God is so good. I will never stop sharing our redemption story.



As we look ahead and anticipate the results of IVF round 2, I keep the promise God whispered close to my heart. I don't know what will happen in the future, none of us do. But instead of allowing fear to dictate our days, I am reflecting on the faithfulness of God in our past to fuel my faith for the future.


While we were busy building this farm, God was restoring and redeeming us!

 

How can I pray for you?
