houses + walnuts + elephants = one fun bubble!

I'm writing cause I feel like i'v got all this nervous energy in me just bubbling out like some crazy woman... and just need the outlet for all my thoughts...{like all the bubbles my son is totally obsessed with at the moment - his lastest fun craze is getting us to blow him bubbles as soon as he sees the bubble mixture which we seem to sux at hiding} but anyways not the point....

 the point is, I'm so excited about what we feel like Gods prompting us to look into at the moment.. and thats buying our first house - totally crazy out of the blue never thought it would happen to you - kind of stuff.

for the last few weeks I've had this picture in my mind of a white house in a walnut shell - and its in Gods hands, i dont really know how to unpack this but i'm trying to let God show me rather than jumping to any too quick conclusions...but theres something cool in that picture i just cant see it yet...





Today james came home from church all excited cause the guy speaking was talking about his journey with God providing for him and his family and part of that was him leading them to purchase their family home and long story short this spoke to james heart that God might be saying this for us in this season too...for us with james not having a full time job the possibility of us getting a bank loan is near none, but we feel like we need to look into this all the same... so J is going to the bank proably next week to talk to them...

I got a picture for james a few wks back in relation to stuff he's working through at the moment of a elephant - but it was the story about the mouse who climbed in different parts of the elephant not knowing what this thing was - the concept of taking something bit by bit rather than looking at the whole - and I think thats what Gods asking us to do here...


 Not to look at the big picture but to just step one step at a time as we are lead and to leave the big picture stuff up to him... Cause we are just big kids after all and he doesnt want us to have to worry about all that stuff cause thats his job as our dad...



 so i'm also thinking that thing with the walnut is also about not writing off somthing that initially might not feel or look perfect in a house etc but to allow God to show us the potential within it, going back to that idea i had not so long ago about judging the walnut by its outward shell but actually seing the something of beauty within....
 ahhhh oh gosh now i'm just so darn excited! praise glory be haha!


So really its all about just doing that "one thing" that Gods nudging us to do, because thats all he want us to handle and then the rest is in his hands....

yup I think I might just be able to handle just "one thing" - gosh i love the way God works...

life is so much funner and less stressful when you just focus on that "one thing"...

...anyone want to go house shopping? ;)
