Well, it had to happen. All this talk about not getting too settled and a pilgrim lifestyle. Our landlord came round to tell us that they’re having to sell our house, so we’ll soon be on the move again.
This is tempering my thinking a bit. Considering how difficult I found it to move here in the first place I have become very happy and settled here. We’re getting more involved in local church and have made some friends locally (especially Susie, with the local children).
So maybe it’s OK to settle down a bit provided we have a willingness to move when God says ‘go!’ Maybe a pilgrim heart in a settled body is OK. Maybe I’m just trying to justify how I feel about the prospect of packing up again when I thought we’d be here for a while.
One thing is certain…God won’t allow me to be casual about what I say I think and believe…no room for hypocrisy here!
