We have moved into our new home and are busy with settling in and doing little projects around the house. Let's rewind back to when we were waiting to close.
So what do you do when you are stuck in moving limbo? This is the question I was asking myself and over that three weeks I found some answers.
1. Help Someone Else.
When I found out that we weren't going to be moving yet, I called a
couple friends and my mom to see what I should do to fill the time. I
had already packed all of my craft stuff and almost everything else we
owned. Surprisingly, the first answer to my dilemma came through helping
them or friends of friends with things. How awesome is it that just
when my life was put on hold, God brought me other individuals who
really needed help with things!
We have decided that this is something we would like to continue even
when we're up to our eyeballs in home improvement projects.
3. Trust God. This
was the hardest one for me, but we had to learn to trust God's timing.
We didn't find out for sure that we were moving until the Tuesday before
the Weekend we got the keys. That is three day's notice for
moving help, people! That was especially hard. The best part was, we had
16 (sixteen!!!) people from our church show up to help us move, clean
and unload. I have never felt so loved as I did that day!! Several of
them said that if it had happened the weekend we were planning they
wouldn't have been able to come. So how's that for timing?
if you're in moving limbo right now, be comforted. I have been there
and felt the frustration and I hope these ideas can get you through the
