Terrified because I know ALL of this stuff has to go somewhere!
Relieved because life is about to get more simple.
Our house has always had a welcome sign for all who need a meal, a shoulder, a rest from the race. And over the years, we've accumulated more beds, more tables, more comfy chairs to accommodate each need.
I can't help but think of the story of Jesus sending his disciples out without stuff in Matthew 10:9.
Maybe He is doing the same with us. It feels like a new chapter in the book of our lives. You know when you are reading a really great book, like The Noticer, and you cannot wait to get to the next chapter? Like that!
Which is a bit surprising since our mornings begin sipping coffee as magnificent sunrises slip over the lake. Tucking dozens of family and friends in for a movie and popcorn seems normal. And jumping on a tractor to mow 5 acres that melts away stress. We love it here!
But now we're on the edge of a new adventure and it's exciting!
Sitting still too long in one comfortable place might make me to reliant on what I know. God has something in store for me that He cannot accomplish unless I'm willing to let go of my safe haven, my comfy stuff, my normal routine.
Are you willing to let God move you?
