Today...my mind seemed to be working overtime. Our next couple months are busy (like everyone else, right?). It hit me today how close it is to the holidays when schedules tend to get even busier. We have been so blessed the last few months, spending time with family and friends (who are like family!) and the closer we get to our departure date, the more I realize how precious this time is for us. 


We have seen God move in some pretty amazing ways! We accepted a bid on our house after only having a sign in the yard for 2 weeks (NO newspaper ad or realtor involved)! Completely a God thing!! The couple still needs to sell their house, and we would appreciate prayers for this, but I know God has it under control! :) We have had churches that we have never been involved with, and many that we have,  open their doors and hearts to hear about City of Refuge and the ministry we will be a part of there.  And we have felt the support of so many of our friends and family. 


Some days, though, I allow Satan a foothold and fear sets in...fear of the unknown. I am so excited to see the faces of those I love in Ghana, but I am, also, not naive enough to believe that everything with our move and adjustment will be a piece of cake! During these days, God keeps reminding me of verses such as 2 Timothy 1:7 which says, 


"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind." 


I must choose to not fear, but to TRUST!  Trust that the creator of the universe, who loves me, has it all under control and that He is with us each step of the way. There is a song by 33 Miles that I listen to often. It is an amazing reminder that I can rest and know that God has everything in his hands. Here are the lyrics:


The Arms That Hold The Universe

I know it seems like this could be

The darkest day you've known
But believe you me
The God of strength will never let you go
He will overcome I know

And the arms that hold the universe

Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It's gonna be alright
And the voice that calmed the raging sea

Is calling you His child
So be still and know He's in control
He will never let you go

Through many dangers toils and snares

You have already come
His grace has brought you safe this far
His grace will lead you home

And the arms that hold the universe

Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It's gonna be alright
And the voice that calmed the raging sea

Is calling you His child
So be still and know He's in control
He will never let you go

You can hope, you can rise, you can stand

He's still got the whole world in His hands
You can hope, you can rise, you can stand
He's still got the whole world
The whole world in His hands

And the arms that hold the universe

Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It's gonna be alright
And the voice that calmed the raging sea

Is calling you His child
So be still and know He's in control
He will never let you go
He will never let you go
He's still got the whole world in His hands

Still got the whole world in His hands
