Kate said SETTLE
I wasn’t going to. I had no plan to find today’s five minute Friday word prompt but there it was in my email in-box. Kate is efficient in her leadership! And, I saw the word, “SETTLE!”
And, instantly thought – that’s it – that is what I’m feeling.
But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you; 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5.10-11
After about ten seconds of thinking on the word settle this scripture popped up in my mind. And, I had to write.
Amidst the chaos
We are moving again! And, we are making our final downsizing efforts until heaven calls us home! And, friends, this one is hard. We are moving from a 1200 square foot, two-story flat into a 399 square foot, one-level (with a loft for YOUNG guests), tiny house.
Overwhelmed or Unsettled?
I thought I was overwhelmed and then this morning I realized, it is just an unsettling in my spirit. I know without doubt this is God’s good, acceptable, and perfect will for us; yet, I’ve allowed the enemy of my soul to unsettle me.
Not Today, Satan
I’ve walked this walk way too long to allow this unsettling to ‘settle’ into me – I am handwriting 1 Peter 5.10-11 on an index card and meditating on it all day. Every day, until we are settled into our new Tiny Home – we are calling her Fat Gracee! She is going to be our next safe place – where friends can visit and feel the presence of peace and safety – a haven of rest on a lake.
