At least in my scenario it is. How many times have you heard someone say, “I just have to get out of this place, and it will surely be better anywhere else I go?” Every time I heard someone say those words, I would respond with, “the grass is not greener on the other side, and if it is, it is because of all the bull**** left to fertilize that side.”
I am in my new home. As I walk around taking it all in, I marvel at God. He led my husband to a fully furnished place. When I was in Toledo, there wasn’t a day which had gone by where I wasn’t worried about the unknown. I would fret about everything, like what to take and what to leave. I wasted so much time worrying, and gave little attention to praying. I became “Ye of little faith.”
Florida was not my idea of a great move to be on honest with you. I struggled inside when my husband said he felt like he needed to move there. I had hoped it was North or South Carolina. 🙂
He had left mid July to scope out the new green land full of palm trees. He then began the process of bringing his family to the sunshine state. Within a week of being here, he got a really great job at Publix (green logo lol) where working is a pleasure. He knew the Lord called him and his confidence in the Lord grew stronger.
And now that I am here where everything is green, and not orange, brown, and red (as is the colors up north), it does seem to renew my faith. Even though I still believe that we must be content wherever we are, this move has restored a little more sunshine in my life and I can honestly say, this side of green is better for me.
