We won’t move without You

“God Walks With You”
Isaiah 43:2

It’s been awhile, I apologize.  It’s been one of those times, where a prayer has been answered, just maybe not (or really not) what we expected (wanted).  It’s taking time to adjust, and while I’ve felt close to God, it’s been a lot of “Really, God?”, and just pleading to open my heart to acceptance, surrender, and faith.

We are moving from Atlanta, GA to Cleveland, OH.  I had started a post, and hope to find some time during this hectic time, to list out some of the positives.  It will be good, and my attitude is probably 99% of that.  But it will be hard.  To leave family, friends, our church, our preschool, our neighbors, the amazing network we have worked to build for us and our kids.  And while I have and will cry many tears for that, I feel God keeps placing on my heart that He is what matters, He will provide, and He will not abandon us.

“We won’t move without You”

Lyrics sung tonight by Jay & Abby Akins (two people high on our list of who we will miss) at Evergreen Church, that hit right to my heart.  We may be physically moving, but we won’t be leaving God behind.  He will guide us there, He will be with us every step of the way, and He will never leave.  I need to be comforted in this, I am, but during such an emotional time, it’s hard.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Isaiah 43:2

More to come, but tonight, I wanted to share with you the aforementioned song (take a listen below) that I’m singing and meditating on this evening.  You will lead us, we will follow, and we will always cry out that You are the LORD OUR GOD!  Amen!

The Lord Our God
Kristian Stanfill/Passion

Promise maker, promise keeper
You finish what you begin
Our provision through the desert
You see it through ’til the end
You see it through ’til the end

[Chorus]
The Lord out God is ever faithful
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness You will lead us
And forever we will say
You’re the Lord our God

In the silence, in the waiting
Still we can know You are good
All Your plans are for Your glory
Yes, we can know You are good
Yes, we can know You are good

[Chorus]

We won’t move without You
We won’t move without You
You’re the light of all and all that we need
(X3)

[Chorus]

And forever we will say
You’re the Lord our God
(X2)

The Lord our God (x2)

  1. I know how hard this can be. Leaving a church where you are loved and fed the Word and know everyone and feel like a part is like ripping your arm off when you leave. We did that four years ago. But… God is with you, He will go before and make the way clear. Prayers for this season, Lord, be with this family. Give them excitement and joy. Show them promise from You and You alone. Prepare the hearts of friends for them. Prepare the perfect neighborhood with people who will welcome them and become family to them. Keep them in Your care, provide each provision for them. Finances, health, wisdom, guidance, and fill them each with anticipation for great things you have for them. Phil 1:6, “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns”
    Now, if that doesn’t help, then you can at least visit the Rock and Roll hall of fame… Keep us all posted and take a deep breath.

    • Haha! Thank you for the sweet words. I greatly appreciate your prayers. That is getting us through right now. And thanks to the internet, I know we’ll never been to far away. Lots more to come!

  2. He often sends us to places we wouldn’t have picked or wanted, but he has a reason!! Good luck on the move!!
