O Soul

Meimei woke up crying in the middle of the night again. After settling her down, I wasn’t able to fall back asleep. I snapped into panic mode. PANIC. I have so much clutter. Kinda hoard when it comes to certain items, not gonna lie. Like craft supplies. I have so many craft supplies. I love crafting. I love the idea of crafting. I want to have all materials before me as inspiration strikes. How am I going to get rid of all of our junk in time to get the house ready to sell?!?? Can a reality TV show adopt our case, send a crew to help me out here?!?? We would seriously be perfect candidates.

At the peak of my midnight freak out session, the Lord reminded me of a couple of stanzas from this hymn

How sweet is our Lord???!! My soul was CALMED. My mind was still running through all of these scenarios and tasks, but I had the distinct sense that “it will all be okay”. It wasn’t because there are any less tasks, but that the Lord will carry us through it all, every step of the way. As He has always done. Thank you, Lord Jesus for being my real peace!

A surprising close to 2018

I woke up from Meimei crying around 3:00 am and wasn’t able to go back to sleep. My heart skipped a beat and my mind started racing. “Did that really happen? Did my dear husband really just accept a job offer that will uproot and relocate our family to a foreign country that we have never been to?” So, so, soooo many details and thoughts flooded my brain! The logistics of an international relocation are so daunting and there’s an endless list of things to do to make it work–with 4 littles in tow! 🤯😱😳😩😧😵 Overwhelmed!! Lord Jesus, we need You!!!

This verse is Annuar and my experience regarding this big move. But more about that another day…at the moment I’m in a state of shock.
