MY PUBLIC PRIVATE
Monday, June 26, 2006
Thank you to all who have prayed for
me through the last several posts regarding my family's
desire to move back to Minnesota. In the last few weeks
we have seen God provide with some powerful answers to prayer.
We sincerely believed that the Lord was
leading us to rejoin our extended families, so we prayed
unceasingly for a new job and for the ability to sell our
home in Mississippi. I was particularly inspired by the
Lord's parables, where he taught us to persevere in prayer.
My wife and I were confident that God was leading, so we
stepped out in faith and made an offer on a home in Minnesota.
It was a little backwards, and eyeballs were rolling I'm
sure. Usually you get a job and then buy a home. But within
two weeks I had a job offer (in a completely different trade!).
And within another two weeks we found a buyer for our home,
and we are closing on the sale at the end of this week.
After more than three years, we are finally
moving back to grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, brothers,
sisters, nephews, nieces and cousins. We are completely
in awe of God's wonderful mercy and rejoicing in His goodness.
On yet another positive note, my fifth
CD is almost completely written. I'm hoping to save up for
a good keyboard and start recording. Please keep this project
in your prayers, too. I hope that the songs will draw many
closer to our wonderful Savior Jesus Christ.

I still don't have a job in Minnesota,
but I am more convinced than ever that God is moving us
in that direction. This has been a good lesson for my two
young sons on how we need to persevere in prayer. It's been
a good lesson for me, too.
If you're reading this, please offer
up a little prayer for me and my family.
