I take Thy promise

A couple of months ago, when Annuar was invited to apply for the position, I didn’t even know how to begin to pray. I wanted a change in our lives, but relocating to another country wasn’t your average change (at least not for us newbie expats to be). I streamed hymns on SoundCloud and YouTube a lot, and that was a way for my spirit to be primed and encouraged. All I knew to do was to enjoy the Lord in the small things and try not to overthink.

Last night I struggled with more restless tossing and turning. My tired mind recalled a couple of stanzas of a particular hymn.

What a beautiful reminder that the Lord gave me. I don’t know what kind of housing we will be able to find or what to do about furnishings or how we will be able to transport our tribe of 6 to our daily destinations. We have so many belongings to go through to eliminate, to storage or to move. I haven’t been able to make sense of which would be optimal in our case. I have never sold a house before. I have researched a little bit online, but I don’t know much about the actual expat process yet. Breathe in, breathe out! Regardless of what outward life changes may come, the Lord remains our source of strength and supply. I don’t feel like I’m in control of anything at all right now, but “I take Thy promise, Lord, in ALL IT’S LENGTH.”
