I’m the last one awake at mom’s house. We have been here celebrating Christmas and everyone has gone off to bed. It’s so quiet my thoughts are actually leading me somewhere. I just realized that it was at this moment last year that I was sitting on a sofa with my in-laws when a text came through that would chart the first portion of 2010 for us. My husband, being the helper that he is, saw a friend in need and extended our support to a church in Louisville Kentucky. I mean, that is what we do. We consult with churches to build music teams, we lead worship, one of us or both. We fill a need if we can fill it. Trent offered my services to a church that was in need of a worship leader. At first, I thought, no way, this is crazy! How could we move our family to somewhere I know nothing about?! Moving was just one option far off in our minds at that moment this time last year. We were only at the beginning stage of setting up plans of assistance and that meant I would travel on available weekends to Louisville to fill-in the gaps for them. As the weeks passed by and I had visited Louisville several times, it became a place of interest to me. I had been yearning for a place I could be a part of a team again, and have my family involved in church at the same time, yet still fill my place on the road. It was a check, check, check plus! I could do all that and more!
Through much fasting and prayer, we got the green light. Simultaneously, we received many prophetic words all revolving around our move and what we would accomplish. I will possibly get into more of that later. We had all the confirmation we needed and the good Lord knew I needed it for what I was going to face throughout this year.
As I stated in a previous blog right before this all came about, “We miss many occasions for serving because we lack sensitivity and spontaneity” (Rick Warren)
This is to be continued…….maybe a series….;)
