Goodbyes & Lessons


IMG_7534IMG_5436 IMG_5486 IMG_5491 IMG_5411

Goodness life has been CRAZY!!
From packing up our lives in Texas,
to visiting family in Georgia, Alabama, and New York,
to completing our second to last grad school class,
to fitting all of our things into 2 suitcases each…
Life is a bit overwhelming.
{But I promise I will begin posting regularly again soon!}

Over the past few weeks the Lord has really put Romans 8:28 on my heart.

 “And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28

Over the past few weeks we have experienced some events that sting.
It hurts to say goodbye.
Goodbyes can be scary.
We have said goodbye to financial security
and the comforts of life in Texas.

All in all,
our “painful” events have been easy.
We are incredibly thankful
and I am beyond blessed that these are our current trials.
We know they could be far, far worse.

But regardless of our struggles,
we know that all things work together for His glory.
We are bound to experience painful events.
But when we look back at the story of our lives,
we can usually see the Lord’s hand in each event.
We can see Him preparing us,
molding us into who He wants us to be.
These events work together for the good of His glory.

As we enter this next chapter {we move in THREE days!!!},
I pray that He continues to remind me of this verse.
As we experience trials I pray that His hand remains evident.
As hardship occurs I pray we look for His lessons & His purpose.
We are guaranteed difficult times.
But we are also guaranteed grace, hope, & a future in heaven with Him.
