where he is for now

Thank you for your prayers.  I know many of you who were lifting us up today didn't even know the details behind the situation.  The Spirit does though and He intercedes on our behalf.

Last week, God was faithful to remind me that we are in the Air Force.  The very next day, the Air Force came knocking.  My Love was contacted by his superior about a golden ticket job opportunity that would begin next summer.  Although it would be a great experience for his overall career, my Love really felt that it wasn't the right time.  He is just getting into his new leadership position and really feels like he could make a positive impact on the mission he is supporting.  My Love was expected to have a confident response prepared for his meeting today.  Even though he knew he didn't want the job right now, he also understood the greater Air Force could have asked him to take it anyway.

We prayed for God's will.

After communicating to his superior about how the mission would be affected by his impending transition (compounded by the moves expected by others as well), the AF needed him where he was for the time being.  Amazingly the colonel agreed.  My Love will be staying where he is for now but will probably be considered for the job again at a later time which he would welcome.

Thank you for your prayers.  God continues to knock our socks off.  We are trusting him with every day and are constantly reminded of how much he loves us.

Now as far as the if/when of our move...the jury is still out. ;)

It is amazing how we have no worries when we seek Him and wait upon Him. Thank you for being faithful and sharing your prayer requests. It is how we can give ultimate honor to our Lord when we do that. I am also glad for Adam that he can dig his heels in and make an impact where he is at.
