"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

***Update*** I AM MOVING

Well not me alone.

My department had a meeting with the President and Vice President of the company I work for this afternoon. My department consists of 10 individuals. We were told, and an official announcement will be made to the other 65 people tomorrow morning at devotions, that are department "alone" will have to move within the next couple of months two cities away in order that our company keeps their status plus the non-profit status with a particular Diocese. Everyone else will remain where they are at.

I work for a non-profit Catholic organization. This was a blow to us all. The attorney for the Diocese says we have to establish a physical headquarters in that particular city and have at least 10 full time employees there to keep our status.

My only selfish gripe is that now I will not be just two miles away from work, I will be 15-20 miles one way. But, right now this is the only option. I know a couple of others were not too pleased with the news and started crying.

If this happened a couple of years ago I would not feel so excited about the opportunity. I am in a better place emotionally. I am willing to trust God in this move. Sure, I rather be close and just fall out of bed and go to work. I will have to definitely get new tires for my car. There will certainly be some adjusting. We will feel isolated. We will be separate from the others. Somehow that does not bother me. It bothers a couple of others though. Hmmmmmm

I will be curious of the reactions tomorrow from the rest of my co-workers.

Now you know for darn sure I am not going to tell my mum until the time comes closer. If I did, I would not live to see the day I move. She would have me in a psych ward with all the possible scenarios that could go wrong by driving further and yes, even driving at night! She will not understand why I have to go with them.

I guess the new year stretching and stepping out into the unknown has already begun.

Lord it is in Your hands!

* * * * Update * * * *

I may have sounded more positive yesterday, but I had time to process now. I am still okay with the move.....


The enemy woke me up out of a sleep and I felt such oppression come over me. Had to leave a light on. He threw every possible negative thought that could go wrong with this move. Including my mum having a fit and dying because of it. Irrational crap.

Satan is trying to destroy our organization. We are a strong organization. In a time of recession, we keep on hiring people. We did not come into this problem until the recent change of “so called power” in the higher ups who has a reputation of not liking “organizations such as ours.” So in order to save our company, we have to go this route by law. Not saying we were breaking the law before, but it was not an issue to keep our status until now.

Still God can change this man’s mind and we do not have to go this route. Whatever the outcome, He is always in control.


  1. the Good News is that you keep your Job.back in the seventies we were told the jobs were being moved and we would not be going with them.

  2. Maybe you could look at it as a gift - and see when you 'move' - what kind of present it is? You never know do you?


  3. JBR: I'm with you - this can be a very positive thing. You will be in a new city, and have new adventures to explore!!! Plus your MOM may be the one who has to have a lock up vacation when she figures out you are even more independent than she thought!!!

  4. Wow! You are handling this so well! I am really impressed. I think your commenters have some good points-- it's great that your organization is taking their staff with them. And it can afford new opportunities! If anything, it's a new start, right?

    Wishing you well,

  5. I really love your attitude...and I think that will help when the changes come...who knows what is in store for you...all the opportunities...I hope you had a good Christmas...I've not been online much over the past week so feel kind of out of touch with people..wanted to stop by and say that even though I haven't stopped by doesn't mean I haven't thought about you. Also wanted to say thank you for being my friend. (((JBR))))

  6. Your attitude is so positive this has to be a good thing. Change can be difficult, but when it's an adventure it is truly exciting.

  7. Way to be positive, sweetie! Change can be a WONDERFUL thing! :> )

    Keeping you in my prayers!


  8. Yo're cute! This is going to be sooooooooo fun! Tata PPP!

  9. change, any kind of change, for me, brings fear and resistance. i say, give it a go. who knows, there may be something to where you're going that you're meant to get in contact with...

  10. Hang in there JBR. Sorry that you have to face so many changes to start of your New Year. Just remember, God may be moving a mountain that you are not aware of just yet and there is a big blessing on the other side. He plants us where we need to be for a reason that we never truly understand.

    I decided to take my Shattering Silence blog down a bit because I had a few unwelcome stalkers (i.e....my uncle, the rapist!) I found my grandmother down here in NC in a nursing home out in the backwoods just left by him to fend for herself. I have been busy trying to gain legal custody over her. But you can still drop by my 4everRoxy blog.

    Hugs to you!!!

  11. Praying you have an awesome New Year full of unexpected blessings! Thank you for all the visits to my blogs and for stepping into my life through the blog world.

    Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

  12. I happy to hear that you are facing this with a positive attitude. I will keep you in my prayers along with your organization, keeping evil away.

  13. I love your optimistic view regarding the move, JBR :) I hope everything goes smoothly in this area and I pray that the New Year is filled with many blessings from above. May our Lord's peace be with you, JBR :)

  14. I will be praying for you that everything will work out in God's Will, and that you will be safe and have peace no matter what the outcome.
