In the midst of the mess keep seeking the Lord.

My life has been pretty messing these past several months.

  • Our move to Washougal.
  • Getting our house on the market.
  • Finding a house in Washougal.
  • College tuition, taxes and three cars broke down in one week.
  • Still dealing with an overwhelming loss of the pastorate and our church family.

The Lord spoke to me through his word a couple weeks ago.

II Chron. 20:12 - "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you."

My interpretation: In the midst of the mess keep seeking the Lord.

I remember at one point in Spokane while I was busy getting the house on the market I told the Lord... "I can't do this. It is all so overwhelming." The Lord spoke to me and said, "just walk with me."

I kept seeking the Lord in the midst of the mess. When I did not know what to do I kept my eyes on the Lord.

We put our house on the market, bought another house in Washougal moved within a month into our new home.

We still haven't sold our other house, we are still paying college tuition and the taxes have not gone away. At times I panic but then I reflect on the Lords message to me. "Just walk with me." and I reflect on the verse... "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you."

So, let me encourage you that in the midst of the mess keep seeking the Lord.
