Yesterday was one of the worst days of my life. I am not kidding. If you follow me on Facebook, then you have heard me talking about moving. . . .again. No. I am not joking. The house that we moved into last year, we had to give up because the people that owned it wanted to move back in, and the house that we moved into here in the city, the people decided to sell, so we have to move yet again. The house that we are moving into is not anywhere near as nice as the one we live in now. It’s an ugly tan color on the outside, and the inside has ugly white walls and a very outdated kitchen. Like –very outdated.

Needless to say that I was a complete blubbering mess yesterday. The thought of giving up my beautiful home and gorgeous kitchen are killing me, but I have no choice and I must move. I cried all day yesterday off and on. My heart was sick.

I went to bed last night and literally cried myself to sleep. I prayed and told God, “I want to live in a beautiful home. Why are You allowing this to happen to us? Why are you taking this home away from us?”

It was during the night while sleeping that God gently woke me up and spoke directly to my heart these words:

Sometimes you have to go backward before you can move forwards. Just trust Me.

So what do you do when God gives you a word? You lean in and you listen to what He is speaking to your heart.

Before hearing that, I was having a hard time sleeping. But the minute God whispered to my heart, I slept peacefully and I am in a much better place today than I was yesterday. When I woke up this morning and checked Facebook, my friend Shawna sent me something that she saw after seeing my post about trying to be OK with everything.

Trust Me

So I am going to do exactly what God is asking me and just trust Him throughout this whole process. There is a reason for it, and while I am not sure and don’t understand, God does and that is enough for me.

What About you? Does God ever wake you up with words of comfort?
