(1) A Time of Transitions

When I go back to the time that the Lord called Cory and I to sell everything, go mobile, follow Jesus and live on faith, I’m in awe of all God has done. Where do I start? When we heard the call, we began to prepare our home to put on the market. We made a plan, and I chuckle, because there is so much truth to the scripture that says “Man plans his steps, but the Lord directs his path.” We had a “safe” plan, but God had his plans. We had an order to our steps, but God has His Order and “His Ways are not our ways“... as we thought we would be moving, then purchasing and RV, then stepping into full time ministry down the road. But how it has gone so far, is: waiting on God to sell our home, purchasing an RV, and Cory taking a severance package from John Deere as the Lord has led. But, even in this process which seems so foolish to those who are wise, we have seen God’s amazing Hand of provision. We have seen His timing. We have seen Him remain faithful and in control even when we felt scared, nervous, or fearful about stepping into the realm of the unknown. Below is the timeline of our current happenings. As you will see, they are wayyyyy out of order and really put us in a place of trust and submission! Be sure to read to the end for our latest “God we are in awe of you” news!

1. We heard God call us and worked at getting our farmhouse ready for sale. We had a lot of odds and ends of projects to wrap up in order to make this happen. With COVID19 being a thing, it really enabled us to work hard and stay focused.

2. We sat down with our kids and chose the make and model of the RV that we wanted, assuming we would have to travel across the country to get it, after the house sold. Little did we know that two weeks later we would fall upon a FB marketplace listing for the exact make and model we were looking for, right in our area! God said “yes” and we purchased it!

3. The day we went to pick up the RV, an hour before leaving, Cory receives an unexpected email offering him a severance package from John Deere. Oh the timing- it didn’t make sense yet it did! He accepted!
