Hold Everything, Stop the Press!

Here I had a series of posts going and life got in the way!

I went to write another post today and just couldn't, my mind is elsewhere. 

I have a feeling the next few days, weeks, months are going to be different.  There are decisions to be made for our family (between us and parents and grandparents) that have been put off for far too long.  There are things transpiring that will change relationships, change living styles, change everything.

Have you ever felt called to do something?

I have, I believe I was called to have children.  I felt and still feel like bearing and raising children for the glory of God is my purpose in life.

This calling I am facing now is different, way different.  But none the less the idea has plagued me for almost 2 years, slowly eating away.  I would push it to the back of my mind and say "its too hard"  and "I can't do that"! But like Jonah, I believe the will of God will be done whether I'm on board willingly or have to be drug, kicking and screaming (or swallowed by a fish) to do it! 

I apologize for being so cryptic but I don't want to put the cart before the horse, let the cat out of the bag, etc

Needless to say, posting will probably end for quite a while if this "calling" does come to pass.  We have planning, discussing and most importantly, PRAYER to occupy our time.  All the while I will have to keep myself in check, be sure that I am putting God's wishes and those of my husband before my own.  *sigh*

Side note:  I have ABSOLUTELY LOVED all of your comments!  So many of you have inspired me through your blogs and your comments to mine.  I will miss that and promise to return, just not sure when.  Thank you so much for brightening my day, Love you and Lord be with you!


  1. Wow Melodie. It sounds like God is working on something big in your life. Of course the insanely curious part of me wants to know what it is. But, I'm sure you'll share when and if the time is right. I'm praying for God's direction and wisdom in your life.

  2. Callings are important to follow. What I love about you is that you recognize Our God doesn't contradict Himself and call us to things that go against our primary callings (being a wife and a mother). I know He'll lead you and give you peace. Then He'll give you the power to do whatever it is.

  3. Karen- You are too funny! I am curious by nature as well. But I will be posting even more on the topic, you can be sure. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers!

    Grateful for Grace- Thank you so much for your comment! I had to learn that God is in control the hard way a long time ago and though I fail, I do my best not to forget it! : ) Love your blog!
