Faith: When The Calling Doesn’t Make Sense

###I just moved my family across the country with no guarantee of a job. [Earlier I wrote about](http://seanleacy.com/its-always-the-crazy-times/) God calling us to move from our comfortable life in East Texas to the great unknown of the Pacific Northwest. Living in East Texas we felt God was calling us in to more of a full-time role as worship pastors and were seeing great fruit from personal ministries.

It’s Always the Crazy Times…

The last year has been insane. Roughly 12 months ago we felt God calling us to move. We weren't sure where (maybe Colorado? Wyoming?) but we started to feel the roots we had planted pulled up around us. We had gotten very used to a routine in our small-town East Texas life; things were somewhat predictable and we were finally making friends (hard to do as a couple of introverts). We began to question as to whether this was really God speaking or just our frustration with changes to our role in the church. God is...
