We are ON THE ROAD AGAIN!! As I type, Josh is driving the bus South, with cornfields on one side of the road and a herd of cattle on the other. The skies up here in the Dakotas are massive and filled with clouds all varying shades of blue. There is so much beauty in nature 😍
We left Ottertail, MN yesterday afternoon. We had spent the past 2 months in MN and North Dakota, visiting friends and family and working on some major projects on our bus. Here is a quick rundown of projects we got done:
We had so many beautiful moments with our friends and family. So many dinners and late nights and worship times and prayer times and fun parties and quality conversations. God has really connected our hearts with AMAZING people in this region of the world.
Now, new things are in store for our family! We have felt that God is bringing us into the next level of our journey of traveling with Jesus. This summer we have had numerous encouraging words from people we trust that have spoken to this very thing. As we walk in obedience with God, we will be walking into new and greater things.
So, now as we walk (or drive 😏) off into the sunset, we feel ready. All of us feel that the timing of our departure is just perfect. We arrived at our first Walmart to shop and sleep last night. When we were walking around by the milk and eggs and day old bread stand, Judah exclaimed, "oh! I remember this!" We feel as though we have finally returned to our normal.
It's funny, but it's true. This nomadic life we live with Holy Spirit leading us is our normal. This traveling life is when we feel at home. Home has become a feeling in our spirits and not actually a physical place. Home is when we are walking in step with our Father God. In fact, home is, simply put, being with Him.
"From Peter, an apostle of Jesus the Anointed One, to the chosen ones who have been scattered abroad like “seed” into the nations living as refugees,... You are not forgotten , for you have been chosen and destined by Father God. The Holy Spirit has set you apart to be God’s holy ones, obedient followers of Jesus Christ who have been gloriously sprinkled with his blood. May God’s delightful grace and peace cascade over you many times over! Celebrate with praises the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has shown us his extravagant mercy. For his fountain of mercy has given us a new life—we are reborn to experience a living, energetic hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
1 Peter 1:1-3 TPT
