What keeps us going

So, this transition is hard. There is so much to do and not enough time or energy to do it all. We’re about to start selling our stuff and that hit me hard today. There’s not a lot of rest, or sleep, so our bodies are weary.

 

But what keeps us going is this…

“We want to avoid suffering, death, sin, ashes. But we live in a world crushed and broken and torn, a world God Himself visited to redeem. We receive his poured-out life, and being allowed the high privilege of suffering with Him, may then pour ourselves out for others.” -Elisabeth Elliot

Our God is a God of redemption and grace. These smiling faces are proof of that. And we love them, and Him, too much to back down when the going gets tough.

    Hi Julia, I’ve had you all on my mind so much lately. I think it’s brave of you to even admit that it’s hard for you to separate from your furniture and things. I ordered a book for you and had it sent to your address, it’s called After The Boxes Are Unpacked. I found it after our move to Oklahoma, the woman that wrote it moved all across the States many times but never out of the states. I hope it will help you even in some small way. If You, the kids and Robert find your way down here again I’d sure love to spend more time together. Please don’t feel pressured by this, it’s just an invitation which You and Robert have always! Love yall and enjoy your blog. 🙂
