How do you handle being UnSettled?

Most of you know I’m in the process of moving. In September, we sold our home and my parents were gracious enough to let us stay with them. Having a rent free roof over our heads has been a blessing and I hope we can do the same for someone else one day. We’ve entered into contract on another home and are waiting to close.

This home is the perfect place for us. An older home, out in the country, on a few acres with a shop. The best part? It’s only 9 miles from town! Believe me, that’s an improvement to where we were coming from. However, there are some updates we will be making to the property before we move in. So in all likelihood, it will be the first of December before we are staying at our new place.

December couldn’t come soon enough. I’m tired of being unsettled and need a place to call my own. My family has yet to find a regular routine and we are going into our 7th week of living with my parents. Lack of personal space has created a lack of genuine family time and now that the Christmas season is upon us my husband is working until six or seven o’clock every night, six days a week.

Sunday is his only day off. And we spend either the morning in church or the evening at small group. As of late, we’ve opted to be at church on Sunday morning leaving our small group to believe we’ve joined another. This is not the case. It’s just literally the only night we have time together as a family.

I hate being unsettled.

The only way I know how to combat this is to stay in the Word. It’s the only thing that grounds me, giving me peace that everything is going to be okay. But even that has been sketchy lately as my health has been poor and I’m struggling to do basic chores.

I know the Lord will see me through this transition, I just need patience. He has guided me through this entire process so I know He will continue to go before me preparing the way. Please pray for me during this time. Prayers for strength, stamina, and mental clarity to make the right decisions and to feel no guilt about the choices I make. And please pray for me to make my time with the Lord a priority, to be settled quickly and find some routine again!

 

Question: What do you do when you are unsettled? How do you get back on track?

    Praying, Nichole. Transition is always difficult. The good news is, God is already there, and knows how things will turn out. I’ve had to learn this lately, myself. Trust in Him always!
