probably wondering about the title of this blog. well, it is for a couple of reasons. the first one is that i hate waiting! God has really taught me a lot of patience during this whole time and though it has been very hard, it has been extremely rewarding. someone told me that they felt God was saying that He was taking me into a time of rest, but that it would be short and was gonna be something big He was going to give me. and i can honestly say that it confirms with what i was sensing all along.
the church we went and visited both kimmy and i feel is the place that God wants us to go to. obviously the proof of that will be if they offer us the position, because we have felt this way before. but one of the differences we feel with this one is that we both really have a deep sense of peace about it. well, we will find out this friday what their decision is. so here i sit having to wait and with it being so close, it is so much harder to wait. so please continue to pray for us, but also pray that these anxious feelings as we wait does not kill us.
the second reason why i said, “AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!!!!” is because someone told me that they felt that there was going to be three churches interested in us and we were going to be able to choose. to which i said that i hope not and that i have been praying for all the doors to close but one. well, guess what? the church in arizona wants to set up a conference call interview with me and then check into flying us out for a face to face interview soon. and the church in indiana emailed me and they want to actually come up here and visit with us for a face to face interview. so here we sit with three churches. and honestly the one in texas is the one that kimmy and i feel that God wants us to go to.
so our question is what do we do? do we tell the az and in churches thanks, but no thanks and take the risk that we don’t get the job in tx and then we sit here for a while longer and maybe miss it? or do we delay the other two until after friday just to see what the tx church says? i don’t know. my head is swimming and my heart is heavy. so pray for divine direction and feel free to comment and offer advice.
