Time to Go!!!

Years ago, the Lord spoke to me through Hawks. I wrote about it in the post "The Audible Voice of God". A few weeks back, the Lord, again spoke to me in this way.

My husband and I were coming home from working on the farm. My husband pointed out a huge hawk sitting on a fence post. I looked and praise God. Since my first experience with hawks and God, I always praise Him when I see one.

After, my praise, I turned my head back to the road and saw another hawk on the other side of the road. Then just like years before another and another hawk was found along side of the road.

I said to God, "You are obviously going to tell me something important, but I have a request. If it is time for us to leave the city, please let me see a hawk on the ground."

At the moment the Lord spoke, "You know how a hawk sits on high and stares at his prey? He stares so intently that he can see even his prey's muscle twitch. Go, when you see your enemies muscle twitch."

Again, like before, I had no idea what that meant, but I was excited.

The hawks did not stop. We drove for 60 miles and must have seen 30-40 hawks. When we got to the city, I thought they would stop. But, they did not. Then, from the ground a hawk, in the middle of the city, flew off the ground and flew right over the top of our car.

My husband and I looked at each other and smiled. Then fear came, then joy. Knowing that it was time to leave, but not knowing what to do next.

What would be our next step? Now, we know. My husband, after we after waited 13 months, has lost his job and we have no choice but to go. What great timing God has.

So, this is my husbands last week of work. We will finish work on the farm and move. The Lord told me to go last year and the time is nigh.

I praise the Lord for His love and timing and that He is always taking care of us.
