Our new adventure has begun! Last Wednesday, the movers came and packed the house. Thursday they packed the truck. Monday...they'll deliver to our new home in Bowling Green. This left us "homeless" in a sense over the weekend. Not really homeless, more like "stuff-less." We spent two days in a hotel, but received our new mattresses in our new home so we will spend two nights there prior to the moving truck coming on Monday.
This adventure certainly brought with it some challenges: home upheaval, new procedures and responsibilities at work to learn, unfamiliarity of a new home area to learn to name a few. New adventures are not new to Christy and I. We enjoy meeting new people, going to new places, and trying new things.
It definitely reminds me of my life in Christ. There is always something new to learn, do, and practice. Certain things do stay the same and need to be guarded.
1). Time with the Lord. It's easy to forget to spend a portion of the day with Him; often times leading to a more difficult Christian walk. We need to guard this despite upheavals in routine.
2). Fellowship with other believers. It's easy to find comfort in the familiar. It's difficult to put yourself out there at new churches, introducing yourself and your family to everyone. This is a must!
3). A continued evangelistic lifestyle. I often tell people that those easiest to witness to are strangers. What about when everyone is a stranger? It's my tendency to witness less in these situations due to the stress of the unknown. We must remain vigilant for the Lord and the lost.
A new adventure for the DeHay's means trying to practice what I preach. Please pray for us as we learn our new community and find a new church home.
