We can't believe that this is the last episode in our series on home and all that that word entails. In today's episode Danielle shares a bit of her story and how she has moved more in the last 6 years than most people move in their lifetime. One reason in particular that she's loved the adventure of moving so much is because it has allowed her the opportunity for a lot of new beginnings and figuring out what home really is. At the end, we make sure to talk about how new beginnings don't only come when one ups their roots and move, but rather new beginnings are just as much a mindset as a physical occurrence. So, we hope you've enjoyed this series! Please make sure to let us know your thoughts and feelings by commenting or sending us a private message whether here on our website or via Facebook or Instagram!
You Are Free by Rebekah Lyons (Study Guide - Session 3)
In Session 3, Rebekah talks about how moving, whether it be to a different city altogether, or simply just to another house within the same city, allows us to have a new beginning. It’s a new opportunity to figure out what home really is or what home maybe could be this time around. She writes: “New beginnings are like that. While they are not without their growing pains and problems, when God walks us (throws us?) into them, they are for our good, for our freedom, and for our peace. And I have found that God is continually pulling me toward himself, my truest home. For the most part, what I actually desire in the buildings where I live can’t be found here. The deepest longings to begin again can only be satisfied in my connection to God himself.”
Rebekah goes on to say that “over and over, I find that HE is my true home.”
