  1. Jenna Le,
    You remind me of a younger version of myself. I got married and immediately moved away from what had been home for all my life. I then proceeded to move around the country with my family. I encourage you to look up Exodus 23:20. There are many times I clung to that promise that the Lord would send an angel ahead of me to guard me along the way and to bring me to the place that He had already prepared. If it helps God has ALWAYS been faithful to this promise and I know He will be faithful to you as well. Loved your post and am lifting you up in prayer right now…
    Blessings,
    Bev

  2. Jenna, thank you for this beautiful message. You reminded me today to look for Jesus in everything so I am not unaware, blind to His presence and grace. Thank you for showing me that the Lord brings meaning to our broken places and experiences with His presence. It is a comfort. May each of us continue to seek Him in our places, in each other. Prayers for you…

  3. God is faithful. Moving and resettling is hard. Sometimes you even have to adjust to the climate and vegetation. Time is often a tool that God uses in this adjustment process. Keep trusting. He will bring adjustment to you and you will learn alot in this process. Wait on the Lord and put your hope in Him.

  4. Awesome insight. It’s the Lord who makes a place meaningful. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Jenna~I’ve been in your circumstance and I love how you let God’s word preach to you! I thought I’d ALWAYS live in Carmel, Indiana…but my husband and God transplanted me out in Washington State. I agree with Bev; God always goes before us. Thanks for this meaningful post and blessings to you as you grow roots in Florida.

  6. Jenna Le, my heart resonated with your post. In the first six months of marriage, I moved from California to Nevada to Alabama (thank you, Uncle Sam). My heart and mind were caught in the whirlwind of change and it left me staggering.

    I loved what you shared about how where we are isn’t insignificant because the Lord is there. Such wisdom!

    And this—”It wasn’t that the place changed, it was that the Lord gave it meaning. His presence gave it meaning.”—spoke to me . . . even all these years after those three moves. Thank you for sharing here today!

  7. Jenna! Thank you. Loved these reminders that the Lord Himself makes a home. I am especially in a season of grieving a big move in the near future…I LOVE our current home and I can’t imagine another being so full of life and memories. But,,,, BETHEL – HOUSE OF GOD is ahead because He is in the moving of our lives and ministry. Bless ya Sister for gathering up hope for me today!

  8. What a beautiful statement of faith, Jenna! I, too, have lived your story–in the Sunshine State no less. Without a doubt, your new home DOES have a purpose, and the day will come when you’ll look back (with joy and wonder) and say, “Wow! Look what God did!”

    Someone once told me, “Without a test, there’s no testimony.” Hang tight to hope during this test that is bringing you to a future testimony of joy and wonder!

  9. Jenna,

    Congratulations on your wedding! May God bless you both with many happy years together!! Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens: happens to be one of my favorite verses. I need it now as I’m in a season of not holding a job, but caring for my aging dad & his many medical issues. Wondering what the next step will be? One thing I do know is that God was with me all along this journey. Each change brought about trials and worries-yet each time God was there with us. He was making a pathway for us to follow! I was unaware of His presence for most of it, but now I can easily see His handiwork in it all!

    Blessings 🙂
    PS I lived in Brandon, FL (outside Tampa) for twenty years!
