Tuesdays Unwrapped - His placement

This is what home used to look like -- flat, concrete and steel, shades of gray.

This is what home looks like now -- prairie life, open space, greens and golds and brilliant blue. Mountains surround our region of Manitoba, setting us apart from the usual flatlands.

It is the hand of God that has directed my steps and as I submit to Him I am filled with the peace of knowing I am placed where He desires, whether for a season or a lifetime.

His heart led us to journey to Africa, and it will be by His direction that we return there -- or perhaps He has a totally different plan that He has not yet revealed. I am unwrapping the blessing of His divine placement. Let me take root in His house, wherever He chooses to plant me.

But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the Lord’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. Psalm 92:12-14 NLT

Join Emily at Chatting at the Sky and let us know what you've unwrapped today

Oh, I'm going with you! I lived in Africa for 3.5 years... I miss it so much!

I am working on this, too -- giving thanks for where He has placed me.

"they will remain vital and green"--I love this last verse that you posted--I used it on my Weekend Worship post this past weekend. It is awesome as is the beautiful countryside where you live. God bless you richly. Dianne
