My Field of Dreams - Defined

Dear Friends ~

Greetings in His risen name.  Christ Jesus.  May we both feel His presence at this time. 

In my last post, well over a month ago, I had been somewhat "secretive".  I posted the following:

There are changes on the horizon for us.  These plans are based on Scripture.  His Word.  These plans have been talked about, prayed about, wept over and are now being put into place.  I am moving forward to enter my “field of dreams”.  A move closer to a Plain life.  I feel like James Earl Jones in the movie, Field of Dreams, beaming that huge smile of his, as he tentatively sticks his arm in the cornfield.  After doing it several times, he shrugs, lifts his eyebrows and walks in, a smile planted on his face.  I, too, am “sticking my arm in”, beaming as I do so.  I’ve been waiting for the last year for the Lord to lead me.  I believe all the changes up to now have been set in place for such an event.  (The changes actually began nearly 30 years ago.)  Hubby Russ is my biggest encourager.  He feels I need to act.  To see.  To experience.  After much debate and prayer, I decided I will just move forward, and see if the Lord throws up barriers, or opens doors.  So far, so good.  I’ll explain more later…as I/we move forward. 

Truth is, I have been traveling more and more to my favorite Amish community.  Visits, day trips, meals, discussions{many many discussions}with open Bible, snail-mail letters in between, being in their church for sermons and song, and even spending the night with my dear friends.  I was/am trying to line up my life in scripture and in truth.

As you can see by reading above, I said I would "...just move forward, and see if the Lord throws up barriers, or opens doors..."  He has opened doors.  Many doors.

But my heart isn't catching up to these changes.  I feel like Christian in Pilgrim's Progress, going down side paths, not staying on the narrow path.  So right now I'm not sure which road I am on.

I probably have you totally confused by now.  But I'll explain soon. 

Until then, please pray for me/us. 

Psalm 25:4-5

Show me Your ways, O Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, 
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.


P.S.  We still don't have water in the cabin...but I'm actually enjoying it.
