Saying Yes to the Journey Ahead...

This week we are starting to really begin looking ahead to the next phase of our lives, moving to South Africa this summer. There are many preparations ahead and we are starting to chip away at them piece by piece. It all can be overwhelming, but I know the greatest challenge ahead will be the emotional piece of moving our lives and hearts to another country for a season. This quote really encouraged me this week and reminded me of God's call on our family - that we are not 'giving up' things but saying 'yes' to God and His heart for our lives. We are blessed!


We seem to think that God wants us to give up things! God never tells us to give up things just for the sake of giving them up, but He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing worth having, namely, life with Himself. -Oswald Chambers
