Missing is the comfort of knowing where to shop, involvement in regular activities, the rhythm of my Young Living business, and the familiar faces of friends and acquaintances around town.
I believe God is orchestrating everything about this move and each day in prayer I sense Him asking me to trust Him, to be at peace and delight in the present moment.
At times, I find myself giving way to thoughts and fears. "How am I going to...?", "Will I be able to...?", "I need to..." I struggle to enjoy each new moment and trust that God is continuing to bring about His plan for my life.
As the saying goes, "The only thing constant in life is change." While change for each of us is inevitable, our response to it is key. Do we give in to stress, anxiety and negativity? Or do we practice gratitude, take time to laugh and refresh, and focus on the good that is in front of us or just around the corner?

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again, rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I'll be eager to hear of your successes and victories.
