  1. We seem to have struck a similar chord with Susie’s prompt, Rachel. I write more broadly about the uncertainty each day brings. I love the reminder, and often need it, about how God has my back. He has this, yes, even this! Blessings from your #livefreethursday neighbor.

      Delighted to meet you Julie. I’ll be popping over to your blog post to read your words.

  2. Rachel,
    Continuing to lift you up in prayer as you trust God while putting one foot in front of the other. This is, perhaps, the most difficult type of trust. One of my favorite sayings is, “God’s got this!” He’s got you, your back, and His everlasting arms beneath you so you will not fall.
    Take courage…
    Blessings,
    Bev xx

      Beautiful. Thank you, Bev. Your comment reminded me of the words in Psalm 139: You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

  3. God bless you as you take one step forward at a time leaning on His provision and grace as well as fresh mercies each morning. Thanks for sharing this journey with us as we anticipate what the Lord will do as a result of where He has led you to this point.

      It’s always so much better to have others on the journey with us, isn’t it? Thanks for reminding me to anticipate the good things God has in store.

  4. Oh yes, friend, I KNOW what it’s like to pack your life into 2 suitcases. 🙂 I’m glad God provided another place to stay? Your title really pulled me in because I’m walking through some very uncertain circumstances, and you’re reminding me to give God a chance to show His goodness. He will. He does every time.

      Praying for you Betsy in your uncertain circumstances. Sending you a hug across the oceans, too.

  5. God does indeed have you back. It is such a stretch to totally rely on Him for provisions and strength for each new day. It is in this way that we grow . I enjoyed the message you gave to our women at Cape Ann Bible Church and marveled than at your trust in Him for your, then, upcoming move. God does not only have His “children’s” backs but also walks beside us each moment of our lives. You are an inspiration to us all. I have learned that sometimes tears are part of the growing relationship. God Bless

      Challis, thank you for your encouraging words of reassurance. I loved speaking at Cape Anne Bible Church. You have a wonderful community. Thankful for a God who walks beside us, carries us and wipes away our tears. His love is the best.

  6. Although I sometimes find it hard to see God’s goodness in the middle of a storm, I definitely recognize His provision afterward. I want to get to where I notice Him sooner when rough storms hit. Thank you for the reminder that He is good and cares about us in the midst of all circumstances!

      Putting down roots, putting down our anchor in God when it’s calm, helps when the storm hits. Thanks for your thoughts, Julie.

  7. It’s so important to remind ourselves of the truth, isn’t it? God is so good to grant us little reminders like the one you received from your son. Thank you for sharing with us at Grace & Truth!

  8. I’ve found out that even when I’m faithless He remains faithful!He cannot deny Himself. God is indeed a good God in every situation.

      So true, Margaret, God cannot deny Himself and we can trust Him to know everything works together for good. Merry Christmas.
