So what's been new with the Reeds? Well, for one, we bought a home! A charming little house right in town with a sweet brick driveway and picturesque window overlooking our backyard. And also lots and lots of projects, but ultimately a custom home by my husband, owner of PS143 Renovations.
At the end of 2018 I heard the Lord speak to me Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." When I heard these Words I knew in my heart one of the many things the Lord was proclaiming was a land of our own.
Over the past several years the Lord has brought Devin and I through a season of tearing down the identity we had created for ourselves and has been building it back up to what He wants. We have laid down almost every treasure we had stored right here on Earth - loved ones, careers, success, the first place we called home, etc - until all we really had left was our little family and Him.
These past several years have been incredibly difficult but also the most precious time of our life yet. The Lord has put us in a position of living off the manna He has provided and has taught us that He alone is our Provider and Sustainer. So, every single aspect about this home thus far has been His provision. Entirely, utterly His and for His purpose and glory. We just can't wait to see what that is - 17 minutes ago
