scripture challenge

This was the first week of the scripture challenge

This weeks challenge was the word faith. Patter suggested reading Hebrews 11, the great faith chapter. Well, we are considering a move to a different state for my dh to take a Preaching job.
This state is one we always said, "we will NEVER move there"............don't ever say never to God! We of course have great reasons for not wanting to live in this state, but forgot one really important thing.....God's reasons are divine. So when reading Hebrews 11 one set of verses really struck me, I need to trust in God's providence and provison for my Familiy!

8 It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. 9 And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith—for he was like a foreigner, living in tents. And so did Isaac and Jacob, who inherited the same promise. 10 Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God. Hebrews 11:8-11
