Breaking Up Camp

Yesterday was Memorial Day, a day set aside to commemorate those who serve and have died serving our country. Many people had gatherings with family and friends in their backyards having cook outs or going to the beach.

I spent my day “breaking up camp”. I spoke to an older lady who encouraged me to get started packing for my move. I feel a real urgency to prepare for change, so I spent my entire day separating what I’m taking with me, what I’m throwing away, what I plan to donate and what I’m going to try to sell. I’m just grateful that I got rid of so much stuff last year, or I would be overwhelmed. But I’m good with organizing, so it was an all around good day for me.

I want a fresh new start, so I plan to take very little with me. I may desire to hold on to my microwave and blender but those things can be easily replaced. We will see. It’s a lot but I know I can get through it. It’s all a part of this new beginning. Mind you, I am doing this all by faith. But where God guides he will provide.

Even though I’ve talked about making this move in the past, the past 72 hrs have brought major confirmation that would make me afraid to not move. Keep me in your prayers!!!

Joshua 1:10-11

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Order to Cross the Jordan

10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 “Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess.’”

Deuteronomy 1:6-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

“The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: ‘You have dwelt long enough at this mountain. Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighboring places in the plain,[a] in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the seacoast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’
