Looking for what God has for us.....

February has been a very busy month for us!  I know it is the shortest month of the year, but man!  Where did it go?

Some of the jobs we have tackled this month have been finding new doctors, getting Arkansas driver's licenses, and STILL looking for a church.  The kids have been so cute as they try to understand all of these mandatory and very boring activites.  We visited one church and let the kids visit kids church.  When it was time to go home Naomi told the director, "I am not ready to leave!"  So the lady told Naomi, "it is o.k. you can come back next time."  Naomi quickly looked up at her and stated, "no, we have to go to alot of churches."  The lady then said, "it's alright, your mom and dad just want to find the perfect church for you."  To that my four year old said, "no, we have to find the church that God has for us!"

What a simple view of what life should be.  Stepping out of your comfort zone and praying for direction.  The director of this children's church was so touched that at the age of four our little girl was able to articulate our desire to be exactly where God wants us.

Over the last month these verses have been going over in my spirit.  Helping in some way to keep us focused on why we are here.  Making it worth it all.

"But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him?  And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?  And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?  And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?  That is why the Scriptures say, "How beautiful are the feet of the messengers who bring good news!"  ~ Romans 10:14-15
