The Path of the Righteous is Like the Light of Dawn

With the start of January and the beginning of the New Year, also comes the realization we are moving in five and a half months! I am truly sad to be leaving our friends and church family, here. (I wish I could take them with me.) But, this move is what our family really needs! And, God has provided the way…after 10 years of us talking and planning (to no avail). I will, both, be getting closer to my family (on the East Coast) and away from negative, toxic relationships on the West Coast!
12For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? 13God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13. ESV.)

14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of the evil.
15Avoid it; do not go on it;
turn away from it and pass on.
16For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong;
they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.
17For they eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
18But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know over what they stumble.
(Proverbs 4:14-19. ESV.)
Have you ever been in that situation before…having to distance yourself from unhealthy alliances?

In four and half months, hubs will be going to Texas to get us a house in the housing development we visited last summer and loved! Then, hubs’ dear friend (from Texas) is going to come here and help us move. It all seems so surreal after years of discussion and prayers. We have to get serious about packing, though! And, I need to go through the kids’ clothes and get rid of what no longer fits! (I used to go through their stuff every six months but have fallen off the wagon the last two years.) Further, even if we do not find a house (for some reason), hubs’ friend has offered for us to stay at his place until we find one. Everything is coming together and no matter what, I do not want to worry about anything!
28And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28. ESV.)

11For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11. ESV.)

We are FINALLY going! It is almost too good to be true! We are so close to meeting this goal! God is paving the way and I am so grateful! Thank you, Lord!
