The Ways God Moves

No Comments

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for following along as we journey down our homesteading path. I would like to take a moment to enlighten you of how I have recently seen God move in our lives. If you have been following our blogs, you are aware that the Crazy One’s health is not the greatest. He suffers from hyperthyroidism, which drains his already depleted energy making an everyday task seem strenuous.

In late August, he had an episode that was nearly catastrophic. It all started when Chi-Chi, our youngest female goat, got herself trapped in the electric fence nearly chocking herself in it. The Crazy One fought to get Chi-Chi untangled while keeping the other three goats from escaping the fence or getting themselves tangled up. If you do not already know, goats are stubborn and they get into EVERYTHING, just like a toddler. After twenty minutes of exhausting what little energy he had to begin with, he came inside to regain his strength. He was completely out of breath, dizzy, pale, and extremely week.

As I assisted him to the bedroom, he made the comment, “We need to call my mom.”

I knew this was serious because even though it normally takes a day or more for his body to calm itself, he does not mention needing his mom, however, this day was no ordinary day. Additionally, I felt something was not right in the way he asked for his mom. In my experience in home health, I learned that when someone is on deaths bed, they ask for family members to be near them.

As these thoughts ran through my head, he laid down on the bed and I grabbed the phone to call his mom. As soon as she heard what happened, she started praying in tongues. Most of it I did not understand, but I felt this peaceful presence encompassing us. She continued praying for about five minutes not missing a beat. Some of the words came out in English while the next word would be in Spirit. I do not have the gift of tongues or interpretation, but I believe that as the Spirit was speaking, it chose to make plain to me the words that I did not understand. This helped me to pray along with my mother-in-law.

I confess that when I was younger, I was not in the same Spiritual place within my heart that I am today. When I heard someone speak in tongues, I was not moved. I could not feel the power of the Holy Spirit moving though the prayer.

I am very thankful that five years ago I decided to Let Go and Let God lead my life, because if it wasn’t for me letting go of self and holding fast to my heavenly father, I would not have been able to feel the energy that surrounded us during our time of need. Today, I am able to see all the many ways God protects and surrounds his children with love. He has a plan for us, and we are ecstatic to share our journey of homesteading along with every way He moves in our lives.

Thank you again for following us.

Who would have thought that we of all people would have ten chickens, five rabbits, nine baby bunnies, and one baby goat in just three months? This is completely crazy. However… It is exactly what we have been praying for. There is only one that has made a way for us to move forward with our dreams.

Scripture says in Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

We have faith that our dream is both possible and obtainable, and through our faith we allow God to take the reigns.

Thank you, Father!

The perfect gift

Just wanted to share the gift I received for my 35th birthday. My mother-in-law gave me the most beautiful box and inside was a necklace with words “Let go and let God” engraved on a silver charm. What a perfect gift.

I truly love sharing my story of how God has totally touched, transformed, and continues to mold my life. He is the Potter and I am the clay, every day he works on me, and he shows me just how much he loves me.
