Here {Five Minute Friday}


Tim and I celebrated another monthiversary yesterday! Eleven months. I’m not quite sure how that’s possible…

I asked him what he thought was the most surprising thing about the past eleven months. Being here, he said. I agree.

I would never have guessed we would be here in Idaho, starting a new life together. Our here has been challenging. I hated here sometimes and other times I couldn’t imagine being anywhere but here.

Despite my fears and struggle with being content {sometimes}, I’m beginning to really see God’s promise for purpose in bringing us here. My vision isn’t specific, though I wish He drew out a detailed map for the next few years; but God is settling my soul with peace.

Here is very different from there {SoCal}, but God is with me wherever I go. I’m really starting to feel that truth.

He is with me whether I’m here, there, or anywhere.

And since He is here, I want to be here also – fully present and willing to take on the here and now with Him.

If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Thy hand will lead me, and Thy right hand will lay hold of me.

Psalm 139:9 & 10

  1. Yes, how comforting it is to know He is with us here, there, and everywhere in between and beyond. God bless you as you make your home and settle into married life. What a joy!

  2. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday…just wanted to say hello. It looks like you are on a grand adventure. Southern Cal to Idaho, that must be a big change. I’m a Pacific Northwest girl now living in the South. So amazing the many, many differences between the opposite corners of the continent. Have a great weekend.

    1. God definitely created a diverse country full of beautiful places to explore. Enjoy your corner of His creation!
