Hello, friends! Thanks for stopping by and reading my heart. I am truly humbled and honored. I am Leah Lively, Virginia born and bred. I am the wife of a hard-working husband and mom to four emotionally charged kids, not to mention our boxer dog. Originally, this blog was titled Bayou Blessings, serving as a record of our journey from Virginia to Louisiana. After ten months away from home, God called us back to Virginia, three hours east of the city we called home. Again, my eyes are focused on what God will do in our new home, not on the chaos and confusion that brought us here.
Since we starting over in our new town, we have begun traveling the path of chronic illness with our oldest daughter. Much of my writing has turned from topics of moving to our journey with fibromyalgia.
Through it all, this scripture has proven true over and over: “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14, MSG)
I am hanging on to every word of these verses. God knows. He’s got this. He knows his plan, not mine. He knows our future. I simply have to pray and look for God. He is always working, we just have to open our eyes to see what He chooses to reveal to us. May my words bring hope and encouragement to you, wherever life may find you today.
