For thus says the Lord of host: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2: 6-7
See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken – that is, things that have been made – in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:25-29.
As I mentioned last month I have two major decisions to make. Both of these situations came up the same week; both were unexpected. One pertains to my son’s psychiatrist, as the psychiatrist my son dearly loved retired, and the other pertains to my job, a scary decision for a single mom.
Concerning my son’s psychiatrist, at first we were going to go to someone closer to home but my son really wants to stay at the office where his retired psychiatrist worked. They have other psychiatrists and nurse practitioners there so it won’t be such a drastic change. Hopefully it will be an easier transition for him this way so for now we plan on staying there and seeing where the Lord leads.
Concerning my job change, I will know more about that in 2 to 3 weeks so please pray I make the right decision when the time comes. When this first came up I went through a roller coaster of emotions. The Lord is shaking those things that have been made in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain (Hebrews 12:27.) He wants me to know that He alone is my provider, protector, and deliverer. My trust is to be in Him and in Him alone. Just as a wife looks to her husband as provider, I am to look to the Lord as my provider/protector, since He is my Husband. I am excited to see what happens and I will share that with you the next time!
One more thing, the Lord has led us to an amazing church. They love people, mental illness and all. The Lord provided AGAIN.
Do not fear, only believe. Mark 5:36
Lord Jesus, I believe.
