Loosening roots?

Posted 15th August 2008 at 09:16 PM by McCokeman
Well, here I am again and it has been quite a while since my last post again.

Seems like time moves faster and faster every day.

This has been a nerve racking time for me.

Once again, Mr. Impatient (Me) is waiting for God to show me the way He wants me to go.

I have applied for a job well out of state that sounds like it would be a great move. Every thing seems like it is almost calling me to go but here I am still waiting to hear back from the company on if they even want me.

As I look at the past I kind of see how God may be kind of loosening my family's roots preparing us to be transplanted somewhere else.

I lose the job that I love because of a back injury and haven't been able to find one since that I am comfortable in saying that I would want to stay there for the rest of my life. And with that, having to start working Sundays. Taking me away from most of the people that I consider my friends.

My wife's place of employment has gone through one ownership change and rumor has it that there may be another coming down the line. Where once it was her dream job, now she just doesn't seem happy at all. Always having to put up with people that can't or just won't do their work. She is also now having to work every other Sunday also. If she wasn't so close to the residents that live where she works, I think she would have moved on a long time ago.

My 16 year old son, got his first job and was loving it. Had a lot of hours and enjoyed working there. Now, all of a sudden, the hours have disappeared and he just doesn't seem to like it as much any more.

My wife and children are still very tight knit together and for a family with two parents, one teenager and another almost teenager, I think we aren't doing all that bad. It could definately be worse.

I just look at things and wonder if we are being prepared for being transplanted to another area. We just don't seem to be as close to our community as we once were.

The thing that bothers me the most is that I don't know if that feeling is biblically correct? Would God be weening us away from the church and people we love to move us somewhere where we don't know a soul? Or, is it Satan fooling us?

I am not a pastor but I have done some ministry in my life.

All I know is I'm waiting as patiently as possible and still nothing seems to be happening. I truly want what ever God has in store for me and my family. I just wish His time moved as fast as mine does.

If anyone has any experience or insight into my problem, please let me know.

Until next time,
