Moving to Selma Changed Our Lives: Unexpected Blessings, Unprecedented Favor
Moving to Selma Changed Our Lives: Unexpected Blessings, Unprecedented Favor

I have experienced a lot of favor in my life since becoming a Christian. That was really eye-catching and obvious. But one of the most powerful experiences that my wife and I have ever had was when we decided to follow our peace and move to Selma, Alabama. It was in 2020 so things were weird for everybody. So we just went with it. We were like, I don't know what's going on. And we had this elaborate plan to move to the beach. And Selma is not a good alternative to the beach. Selma is an impoverished area. It's a beautiful history and civil rights and just so many reasons to visit. But a hard place to go and live for sure here in America. And for American standards, it's actually a very impoverished area. And just it feels like you're in a real hard third world country on days. And so it's not an easy decision to move to Selma, Alabama. Especially when the beach was on the table. We actually had jobs lined up and everything there. But we just knew that we didn't have peace.

And of course, he did. He had an internship that we could move right into. And we had some money saved up, and so we moved. And the at very beginning, we noticed a tremendous amount of favor. It was unlike the place that we had been where, as some might say, the grace had kind of lifted a little bit in our previous situation, which had let us know that we needed to move on. But when we came into Selma, there was so much favor. People had genuine joy for us to even be here. We just felt like, wow, we made the best decision ever in moving. Because people were so wholeheartedly received us. And ever since we've lived here, my wife and I bought our first house here. And we've made good money here, and we've helped a lot of people. We've just done amazing things for the Kingdom of God, and we've been a part of so many things here. And we've built organizations and established different things here that are flourishing now. And I've never experienced favor like
