Looking for Emmanuel and finding Him right here

Yesterday was the most amazing day and I really have/had such a great weekend planned. 

I was thinking about this holiday season and how I have friends getting married, friends having babies, friends moving into their dream homes and this year's memories for me? Eh. Nothing. It's a restful season. God is moving that's for sure, He about knocked my socks off yesterday!!! Those muffins, Wicked, family... It was awesome!!!

He reminded me so much that as much as I'd LOVE to move to Colorado, I'm probably going to stay here and do His work. And honestly that's ok with me. 

I've been going down to the city the last couple weeks for walks at night. They calm me. I breathe in and breathe out and listen closely for His voice. 

It actually makes me sad when i have to come back over the bridge to come home. 

As I was driving home I was thinking how much I love the city and want to live in it. I was thinking about how I wanted to sell my house this year, but it didn't work out.  I was trying to rush it. I prayed that God would work it out or not and that I would trust His timing.  And here I still am, but I've had lots of time to clean out things, it's been such a great process for me!!!

I saw this sign today and it reminded me that no matter how restless I get in wanting to move or do what's next, God has me here for a reason, for this season, and I'll stay here until He says I am done. 

In my crazy restlessness, I find myself  looking for Emmanuel in His timing and trusting Him where I am right now
