I had never lived more than 15 kilometres from my birthplace in Melbourne. With most family and friends living close by, and a job that gave me a great sense of purpose in life, the thought of selling our house and moving interstate was not one I had ever considered sane.
However, presented before me was a job opportunity that seemed to be God calling us to Sydney. There were several smaller hints that this opportunity was a prompting from God but one big nudge was the sign hanging on the house we had bought three-and-a-half years earlier. Our house name was the same as the suburb we were being called to--900 kilometres away. It was a "sign" sign!
As it became clear this was "meant to be," I didn't want to push my luck by staying safe and doing nothing. I know of one instance someone did that and they ended up somewhere dark and fishy for a few days.
