I feel like this year God has decided to teach me the lesson of "Trust in Me. I am in Control. I have a Plan.
First our plans to move to PEI. We filled out all of my immigration paper work and we are now waiting...and waiting... and waiting.
Another thing with the move is that we need to sell our house. So it is on the market, a very saturated house market in the area right now, and we are waiting...and waiting...and waiting.
And today was the day we told everyone that we are expecting our first child in November. So more waiting and more things that could go wrong. What if my paper work doesn't come through on time? What if the baby is born early and is therefore born here in the States?
I could totally stress myself out with these worries. I am a person who likes to be in control. I like to decide on a plan and attack it. I like to know what is coming next.
And yet, I will admit that I have never felt more at peace then I do right now. I am not in control. God has a plan. He has provided for us so perfectly in the past, and I have no doubts that he will do it again. What a promise and what a comfort.
And then he does great things like he did today. We bought a trailer for our move and had been waiting on some papers from the previous owner in order to get a Minnesota title for it, so we can import it into Canada. We had been contacting the previous owner, but never was actually able to speak to him, or get an e-mail reply.
And today we get the mail and what is on the top of the pile? The letter we have been waiting for.
God is good.
