One month. We'll take what we can get.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:33, 34

In the second part of January S. told me the Lord was telling him to not get ahead of himself in planning what's next in our lives. We decided our aim each day would be to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. As we sought, the Lord has brought people, opportunity, and potential plans in and out of our lives. We've been along for the ride.

In the past 3 months the Lord has never allowed us get past the day we are in. It is then quite fitting that while we had hoped to have a definite long-term plan by this weekend, we instead have a one month plan. (Woo-hoo! At least the Lord is entrusting us with a month's worth of work. We must be growing...right?)

The Luis Palau Association called us on Friday and told us they have a good start for a Bellingham festival. They weren't planning on hiring someone so soon to start piecing it together but decided they are willing to pay S. for a month. In that month if they can pull together enough support and interest, we will be staying in Bellingham for at least 14 months.

We are looking forward to this possibility not only because we have an advantage of familiarity in this area (a huge leg up considering much of this job is networking) but we also get to start from the ground up with much support from the Association as we go.

We are praying constantly and stepping cautiously, trusting the Lord with the day we are in. (However, it does looks like I might have some closets to finally organize and some boxes to break down.)


  1. Wow! You have a whole month laid out for you? I'm just asking God to tell me where I am supposed to live this week. Yesterday, I thought I was moving back to the old house on Thursday. But tonight ... we saw a few pieces of a puzzle that the Lord MAY be working through. So, tomorrow I will start packing boxes ... without knowing whether we are moving back to the old house, or to a farmhouse down the street. Keep praying!!!

  2. It may be a *little* bit selfish, but...we're praying the funds needed will be raised and that the Taylor's will be around for the next 14 months. Our gal Hal WOULD love to spend some time in your backyard and this Mommy loves spending time with all YOU! Not to mention the fact that Edge and S. have a lot to catch up on I'm sure!
