This past summer my family left our church of 11 years. This was a painful, difficult decision and it's continuing to be a painful season as we're still searching for a new church home. We had settled on the church I grew up in, but God's been showing us that isn't where he wants us to land. Last week I told Mike, "I just don’t know what to do!"
I'm not sure I ever saw this verse before last week when I read Chapter 7. Honestly, I've read 2 Chronicles and I remember this story but I don't remember this verse. I love the last sentence and it's sustained me through the last week. Mike and I DON'T know what to do about a church home - but God does! This verse has been a reminder to me that my eyes need to be focused on God, not the uncertainties of life. Because my God is sovereign and all-knowing and powerful and good and merciful and gracious and kind and faithful and….(the list could go on and on) I can trust Him to lead us. Yes, the process is still difficult and sometimes painful, and in ourselves we don’t have the power to figure this out. But God is guiding us every step of the way!!
