We are only days away from flying out to Israel where we make our home for the next couple years. In fact, if all goes well, my next post will be written in Israel.
I thought I would try to piece together my thoughts and write a coherent post.
Our plans for arrival in a foreign country is all a bit fuzzy. Really we don't have definitive plans. The theme these days is trust God. Trust God and he will make a way. And he does. Tyler and I have together witnessed time and again God's faithfulness as we prepare for this upcoming journey. But I assure you that we don't always have an answer.
I remember about this time six years ago I was about to head off to college. And five years later I came out on the other side of that journey. I crossed the finish line. I got my bachelor's degree.
But the pathway through all of that was not always clear. I remember talking to a friend in my second or third year of school and feeling very uncertain of my purpose in life, particularly with school. But my friend remarked that I was walking by faith.
I guess that theme has stuck with me. Walk by faith and not by sight.
Here I am now about to head off to Israel with my husband while he goes to school. And I am reminded once more to walk by faith.
The pathway isn't terribly clear to me right now. Details still need to be worked out. I know I will be there to support my husband, but beyond that I can not say what God has planned for me there. But I know it's another opportunity to remember that walking with God is to walk by faith and not by sight.
