"Defying Gravity"

Anyone who has seen the musical "Wicked" knows where I got the title for this post. I haven't even seen the musical but I adore this song and it's bold statement of going against the norm. Sometimes we all have to defy gravity and the demons in our own worlds and realize we know the truth about ourselves even if others may try to change our minds.

I've recently felt as though Mr. A and I are in a sense defying gravity by leaving his dad's church and praying for God to help us find a home of our own we've endured snide comments, ridicule, hearing that we're not truly believers, and much more. We've struggled with finding the words to tell his parents we've found a new home and still to this day have not had that discussion with them but we're ready to.

We have found our home and we are beyond thrilled with the opportunities that God has presented us with. We've prayed long and hard and studied and asked the hard questions and felt both loved, stretched, and challenged to take our faith to new heights. Pray for us that we find the words and the right timing to speak with Mr. A's parents about our decisions and that they'll understand we only want to be where we can best serve the Lord.

Some of the lyrics from
Defying Gravity

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.

Later Alligators.....

Mrs. A

OH I'll definitely be thinking of you. Hubby & I decided to find our own place of worship when we got married and it was one of the best things we've ever done!

Goosebumps!!! We seriously need to get together. My schedule is extremely flexible - even though I have a lot going on, we should get together and catch up sometime. Love this post. :) Many blessings! I will pray for God to guide you and give your parents the understanding and wisdom that only comes from God. xoxo

making a church move can be very hard. My husband and I recently did this from my childhood church. My parents were great about it--but it was my former pastors who weren't the most keen.

Praying for you!

So glad you found a new church home! I'll be praying the transition goes smoothly and those around you are more than supportive.
