I. Trust. You. Jesus.

Two weeks till we leave and we still don't have a place to live in Alaska.

I was ok with that. 
I figured if the Lord is the one leading us to Alaska then He already knows where we're going to live and I was trusting Him to lead us to it.

Then I got on Craigslist Anchorage and started looking at houses. 
There are some beautiful homes, beautiful homes with beautiful views BUT...
... there are no houses in our price range.

There are apartments but they all seem tiny, dark and NO yard space. With all the space in the whole state of Alaska you'd think they'd give you a patch of grass to call  your own for the price they're asking for rent!

What are we thinking leaving behind our cheerful little house that we own with the big yard and creek!?

"God help! What are we going to do?!"

"You either trust me or you don't."

Man, talk about a punch to the gut.
He's right. 

I either trust Him, and that means I trust Him in everything, or I don't. 
I can say I do. But when it comes down to it do I really trust Him for where my family is going to live and how we're going to pay for it?

If I do then I need to give Him this fear and choose to keep walking forward as He shows us each step. 

One step at a time. 


"Let The Waters Rise"
by Mikeschair

Don't know where to begin, it's like my world's cavin' in
And I try but I can't control my fear, where do I go from here?
Sometimes it's so hard to pray when You feel so far away
But I am willin' to go where You want me to and God I trust You

There's a ragin' sea right in front of me
Wants to pull me in, bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise if You want them to
I will follow You, I will follow You, I will follow You

I will swim in the deep 'cause You'll bein' next to me
You're in the eye of the storm and the calm of the sea
You're never out of reach
God, You know where I've been and You were there with me then
You were faithful before, You'll be faithful again, I'm holdin' Your hand

There's a ragin' sea right in front of me
Wants to pull me in, bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise if You want them to
I will follow You, I will follow You, I will follow You

God Your love is enough, You will pull me through, I'm holdin' onto You
God Your love is enough, I will follow You, I will follow You

There's a ragin' sea right in front of me
Wants to pull me in, bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise if You want them to
I will follow You, I will follow You, I will follow You


You can't walk on water if you keep taking your eyes of Jesus. 
The moment you start focusing on something else then you start to sink.

So stop freaking out Melissa and get back to packing!

Great post! That is true of our lives in general! We need to keep our eyes on HIM and ask Him to show us who He is, and what He has for us in each situation.

Love you so!
