Wind At My Back . . .

In Christ, even as I am at the edge of the cliff and the wind is at my back, where I will land is still His plan and will be both amazing and quite unexpected.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

New International Version (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

The Lord placed these words in my face and in my heart during the very difficult but clearly purposeful task of selling my home and relocating here where I now reside.  This is my home on every level of my being and has been spiritually since long before my actual relocation.  Three years of a bad economy were required to sell my old place and I still wonder about when and where income will come . . . aside from temp jobs which have been few and far between.  The storms do not look as though they are moving off the scene yet, but I am as certain as ever that it’s all His purpose.

The impossible is only a reality in this world  . . . I am in it but not of it.  That truth makes all the difference.  My hands may tremble as I write this but my heart and soul know the Truth.

  2. the same thing happened to us in finding this house ~ a true miracle !


    • After 3 years of trying to sell and knowing He wanted me to move to SC, the day I said “I give up” and truly meant it, the phone rang at 5:30AM and it was my realtor who had someone wanting to see it at 7:30am . . . . I had an offer that day and they wanted me out in a week and had an approved mtg application with a mortgage company owned by a client of mine . . . and the rest of the story on this end was just as amazing. My life has had as many miracles and life changing blessings in the last 5 years as scary “but Lord HOW???” If I cannot have had one without the other, I’d be okay with it. Still, do wish there was a solution to fin provision and a that I knew how my vocation was to grow into reality . . .


      • I understand you soooo well sis! We 3 sisters were growing weaker with muscular dystrophy and needed a 1 floor house with large doors because of wheelchair and other apparatuses… this was the only house on sale, one floor, 6 rooms and the exact price, 27,000$ 42 yrs ago. I have too many testimonies to doubt him!


      • I admit, the evil one plants fear in me, yet a while back i was at a church conference and recall thinking “what will I say if they seek a testimony?” In the years since there have been so many and it continues . . . He is amazing!

    Impossibility is only a false illusion that too many of us fall for. Thank you for sharing this inspiring verse : )


  4. Martha…I wish I were there with you to place my hand over your shaking one…and pray with you. Our God can, at times, be The God of “the eleventh hour.” Many times, I have been in that situation where my soul is quaking, when my faith is being chased by doubts. And, just like you have, I’ve finally released it ALL to Him…and seen His Hand move miraculously. Expect your miracle..because it’s DEFINITELY on the way !


    • Thanks! With the hand, foot, and eye issue it is hard to fight the fear but I’ve generally found challenges learning experiences and these sure are. I’m believing and growing in Him!
