My husband and I are trying to get things in order so we can move to the beach. Of course we have to find jobs, sell our home, buy a new home AND I have to make sure my parents can get moved to the beach, too! Until about a year ago I completely shut down the idea of moving. Not because the beach isn’t amazing, because it is, but because I was scared of moving. Because I worried about my kids having to move schools. Because I worried about having to find a job I love as much as the job I have now. Because I would have to meet new people and make new friends. It has taken me 12 years to meet some close friends here in NC! Girls do not want new friends after they turn 30! They have their groups and it is hard for a 35, almost 36, year old to just barge in! Last May, I changed my mind. Life is too short. My husband has always dreamed of moving to the beach, so let’s do it! Why not!
My husband has been working really hard at finding a new job at the beach. He has had a few interviews already, but nothing has worked out for him. Every time he interviews they tell him how wonderful he did but they chose someone else because of blah, blah, blah. But he isn’t giving up. He is continuing to look for opportunities and he keeps putting himself out there. It is hard to get turned down, but he continues to apply and try for the next possible opportunity for our family.
I believe that we will move when we are meant to move. Sometimes, well a lot of times, I have to remember that I am not in control. God has a plan and I have to trust in His plan. Maybe we are meant to move to the beach, maybe not. In time we will find out. If we are meant to go God will open the right door for us at the right time. If we are meant to stay where we are then God will reveal that to us, too.
I don’t doubt Gods plan for our family. I know that He will come through and place us exactly where we need to be. I just keep praying that He will show us where we need to be and that He will guide us in making the right decision for our family.
Sand, palm tress, waves…I can’t wait for our new adventure. If it is Gods plan, it will happen. #Faith #NoDoubt
