It’s been a lot of years since this country girl moved to the city, but no matter how citified I become, I’m still a country girl at heart. We have a contract on our island property, which is very country for a beach property, and have plans to move to an area full of high rises, which makes me cringe a little, but it’s more convenient to our main home near Tampa. Let me break down the main points so you will understand how God works.
*Our home that’s under contract is in Placida, which means peace.
*We are expecting to move to an area called Clearwater! 🤔
The symbolism in this is incredible. As I look back, I can see the steps we’ve made, and God’s hand of guidance. What are his plans for us there? The beach is our place of peace and rest, but I’m very aware that we are always on duty in service to God.
Though we are commanded to take a Sabbath rest, a human in need of Jesus, is like the ox in the pit that he talks about, you don’t leave him there to die, you get him out of it. Whose life are we going to impact by this move? Who are we going to help out of the pit? Only God knows the answer, we just have to follow him wherever he leads us.
Take a look back on your life, and notice your progression. See if you see any symbolism, or signs that might point to where you are now. God will often give us glimpses into what is to come. See if you recognize the path.
