In Between

I don't know how to really describe the place where we are right now except to say: it's not where we will be. S and I both truly feel that the place we are in life is very temporary. We just aren't sure what's going to happen to usher us into the next phase of our life...whatever that will be.

We both have realized how cool it is that we are, for the most part, able to get up and go whenever the time comes. Homeschooling is able to go with us wherever we choose to go, with no concerns for school calendars or holidays. That's nice.

And I don't even know that our next step will require moving. Maybe it will just be that we will be doing something different right here where we are. So we pray. And wait.

And in the meantime...what does God want from us?

To trust and to walk with Him. Because we believe that He determines our steps.


  1. You know, you sound at such peace while being in between. That's because you are in the Lord's will, I am sure. I can't imagine being in between and not belong to Him, not have Him as my Savior, the one who determines my steps. What a frightening place that would be.

    Praying you will continue to be patient and seek His will.

  2. What an excellent perspective! I know so many who are so concerned about what God has for them in the future that they forget to live in the "between"... but you won't ever get to the future, that way! The most important thing to seek is the Lord Himself.

  3. I too am in this stage but just beginning to find peace with where we are. Thanks for sharing.

  4. What a sweet place of true joy that it is to know that all the Lord brings to you in this time is perfectly fashioned for you. I'll be excited to hear what happens next.

  5. Living inbetween is very difficult, but you learn much. Blessings to you on your journey, Brenda. =)


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
