Either Speed Up or Slam on the Brakes

That’s a little thing that we say around here when we’re approaching a chasm of life. You know, those situations that are scary, that involve risk, that are a little out of your comfort zone. You come to a point that you either need to speed up and jump the chasm or slam on the brakes — real quick like.

Moving across country with six young children to a community you don’t know? That would be one of those situations.

For the last week or two, FishPapa and I have been wondering how it’s all going to come together. And there was occasionally the fleeting thought, Should we slam on the brakes?

But, this prospect of moving back west has been in our hearts, minds, and prayers for several years. Applying for this job was a long shot in the beginning. And yet he got it. At each step of the way, God keeps opening doors. In fact, just when I was despairing over having to take on debt to pull it off, a family member sent us a very generous gift. God keeps providing and nudging us to move forward.

So, it’s time to speed up. It’s a scary idea in a sense. I can’t believe that in two weeks I will live someplace drastically different from here.

Thanks for your continued prayers. Thanks for your advice and input.

It’s time to jump this chasm.
