The second weekend of January was a whole lot of crazy! We had 3 interviews in two states (that were not in the state we are currently living in) all in one day! Intense, hectic, & exhausting does not even begin to describe it!
I mean it was a miracle that we made it through the day!
We then crashed at my parents house for the weekend (before heading home to Birmingham) & tried to process everything that happened on that Friday. So if you are wondering why I was so absent the whole week after it’s simply because it was a long weekend & it took a lot out of me.
I woke up Saturday morning feeling just as tired as I did Friday, plus crazy emotional.
We even had to sit outside in our car for a little bit before heading into church so I could get control of my emotions.
I mean we have some big decisions to make.
What we decide is going to have a rippling effect on everything we do in & for our future.
And as the job offers come in all I can do is eat (as has been clear by my snapchat: @blissfulmiller) & pray.
Pray for guidance, pray that doors will both open & close, pray that I will be a good helpmate to my husband, pray that we will make the right decision.
I have no idea where we will be 6 months from now, but I know that God knows. And while it is very reassuring that one of us knows, I do wish He would give us a little hint.
And so I am praying that as doors open, & as we discuss & negotiate, that God will firmly close the doors we are not meant to go through. Even more so that we will have the courage to walk away from those doors & trust God as He leads us through another door.
We have been going round & round with the options. Do we look for the longterm, the lifetime, the short term, the potential for growth… the possibilities are endless & the money pits are daunting.
So if you have a second, we would greatly appreciate your prayers, especially because everything seems so up in the air right now!
And if you need prayer for something that is tugging at your heart feel free to leave your prayer request in the comments or to email me at domesticallyblissful.com. I would love to hear from you & add your prayer request to my list of prayers!
With love, G
Ps. I wrote this post at the beginning of January, but for many reasons held off until now to share it.
Since then God has brought clarity to us & we have made many BIG decisions.
We still have many more decisions to make & your prayers are greatly appreciated.
I will be sharing more about where God is directing us in February’s Life Lately post on March 2.

So we fasted & petitioned our God about this, & He answered our prayer.
Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His love from me!
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
