*LIFE UPDATE* Sometimes life has a way of shifting before your eyes without you even noticing. Until one day you do. About a year ago, Steven and I finally noticed the shift. It was subtle. It was just enough for us to pause and look at each other the way you do when you just experienced a small earthquake. “Did you feel that?” We both swore we did, but weren’t too sure about it. We shrugged. We threw up a quick prayer for guidance and off we went.

In September of 2017, my husband broke his hand in a freak accident. Just like that he was on disability and home for 3 months. None of this made sense. Especially when we had been feeling so much good was right around the corner. Frustrated, while on a drive by myself, I decided to pray. It was one of those silent prayers. The kind where you are too angry for words so you just let the tears do the talking. And as clear as day I heard it in my spirit “Megan, this is the start of something good.” My heart believed it. I dried my tears, went home, looked my husband in the eye and said “ We’re gonna make the most of this season.” He nodded determinedly. Turns out that time with him home was sacred. This gave us the time and space to connect deeply, revaluate our life, listen to our gut, and feel that shift again. This time we paid attention. We let out a bolder prayer “God if this is you, make it obvious and confirm it.” And over the past 6 months, that He has.

March 2018 and here we are. Next month our family will be leaving Washington. This is definitely bittersweet for us as we love Seattle and the people we have come to know here. But it’s important that we practice what we preach. And that is to follow the whisper. To listen to your heart when your head says “that won’t work.” It’s taking that risk. Trusting your instinct. It’s daring to run past comfort zones. It’s saying “yes” in the beginning when you aren’t sure of the ending. It’s blind audacious faith. It’s feeling that small shift and doing more then just saying “did you feel that?” It’s paying attention. It’s taking that leap. 💫
