Moving from worry to motion

I have to admit...I am a dreamer.

I dream about what things will be like, look like, feel like, smell like...

So when I imagine us in a house that honestly...would be a dream house for us, I can't help but imagine my life within those walls.

But today I feel different.

I have been praying for God's peace regardless of the outcome because he says that he will take care of our needs. He says so. So, if I really am who I say I am, then I need to rest in that. And model that for my children while reminding them that mommy is SO not perfect and worries about things that God has under control.

So when I was confronted with a John verse(sorry...I am not great with references) yesterday, it hit me like a ton of bricks..."I have come that you may have life and that you may have it to the full" and a question popped into my head. So...if he says that he will supply our needs and that he came to give us life to the full...what does that mean for things that we WANT! And...why do I feel selfish for wanting a big house for our children. Is that selfish? Do we have to live like mouses as Christians?
