Forward Motion

This past Sunday, Luke and I were blessed to be able to share our vision and heart for St. Kitts with our church family at Horizon Christian Fellowship. The people there truly are family to us, Luke and his family have been going there since he was 5 years old, and I've been calling Horizon my home church for the last 9 years. It was so great to talk to everyone about how the Lord has moved in our hearts over the last year and brought us to where we are now, and we were SO blessed by all the people who came and spoke with us and encouraged us. Praise the Lord for fellowship!

On a totally different note, today marked the start of our moving! I packed for a solid six and a half hours today and it still feels like I haven't even made a dent in all the things that still need to be packed away.

In case you don't know, our lease for the apartment Luke and I have lived in for the last 2 years is up on Saturday, and seeing as we are hoping to move to St. Kitts in November it wouldn't exactly make sense to sign on for another year. So for that reason we are putting all of our belongings into storage because we are going to be living with Luke's parents until we ship out to the Caribbean. It's a real blessing that his parents have opened up their home to us, it's been a serious answer to prayers.

When Luke came home from work today and saw all the boxes that had been packed we sat there and wondered when we had acquired all this stuff?! I mean we're just two people after all! But, it made me realize how much we can take for granted the things that make us comfortable. The Lord has blessed us so much with material things that have made our apartment a home and I am very thankful for that. It humbled me because if the Lord would care enough to provide us with these worldly creature comforts, He also cares enough to provide all the things we need as we prepare for St. Kitts. If you have a minute, read through Matthew 6:19-34 and be encouraged!

Matthew 6:30-
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
