musings of a ragtag heart

Hello!!!  Welcome to my new blog!!!  Many of you know, over the last few months, my family has made a HUGE change.  Three months ago, I quit my full time, ministry job and we left the church we have called home for the last seven years.  Yikes!!  Our church was kind of our life.  Needless to say, this has been a bit of an adjustment, and every once in awhile a bit emotional.  However, God is so faithful, and although it confuses me at times, I am really excited about what God has next.

At the very beginning of this change, I asked a Pastor friend to “pastor” me through this.  He gave me many, many words of wisdom, but one thing he told me to do was meditate on the promises of God.  One of those promises is that God makes all things new.

“Look at the nations and watch– and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5

     God is indeed putting together a new vision for our family and our ministry.  We are still waiting for many pieces, as everything is not in place yet.  I will admit, I am bit antsy about a few things, but this blog is a start.  I cannot wait to share all the new things God is doing, and share some of the struggles along the way.   For now, God has made it clear that this is a time for learning more about His Word, patience, leaning into friendships, and trusting in His plan, and I know many of you are in the trenches with God right now.  I would love to have you join me on this journey!  Please give me your email address below, so I can be sure to stay connected to you!
