195/365: Remember

Deut. 8:2 “and you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way…”
Deut. 8:11 “beware that you do not forget the Lord your God…”
Deut. 8:19 “if you, by any means, forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish

I want to remember.
To obey.  To fear God, not man.  To depend.  To pray.  And then to pray more.  That it is His loving-kindness that satisfies.  To lean on Him.  That He is God, I am not.  His faithfulness.  For what is life without the pleasure of being in Your will?  That He provides what is good for me.  To love Him; to set all my affections on Him.

my heart is at rest.  I trust You. 
whatever Your decision is
I am good
because I have You
may I wait for Your answers with joy
I am eager, to see what You will do
thank you for this time away
You knew what my heart needed

Later that afternoon, while at the beach, the news came in…. the sellers had accepted our offer :)

Lord help my unbelief… I’ve watched you work every step of the way… yet it still seems too good to be true… You’ve brought us this far, yet it is hard to believe that you are giving us THIS land… this GOOD, land…
Hawaii!?!  Seriously? 
Thank you.  Wow.  Thank you.

Oh, and did I mention, the place is a 3bed/2bath + storage condo?
