Announcement Part 5— I'm moving!
If you missed parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 you can find them here:
The house hunting continued, and God was busy teaching me many things. The most important is to fully Trust God. God is GOD! He is the one who is making the entire house buying a possibility. This is only possible because of what God is doing—not Rhonda.
I was overwhelmed by God's blessing and generosity. God was blessing me in a huge way.
Trust. That can be an easy word to say, but such a hard action to really practice.
As I continued discussing the house hunting with God, I continued to focus on the fact that God KNOWS my needs. That fact would give me the confidence to let God lead and direct me to the home of HIS choosing—I only needed to fully trust God—period.
If I picked a home—I would be choosing one for what I WANT RIGHT NOW—not for what the needs are years from now—for I do not know the future.
To be honest as I continued house hunting, I continued to ask God, "Why didn't you give me that home on Kingfish?" It seemed so "perfect". Yes, I know it only had 2 bedrooms, and the bathroom needed work... but I would have made it work.
Notice that "I would have made it work"? Not that I'd let God make it work, or that I would trust God to supply a home. God closed the door to "Kingfish". And I needed to trust that God in His wisdom had a good reason for doing so.
God continued to work in my heart and I finally was willing to surrender and truthfully say, "Yes God, YOU know best and will supply the PERFECT home in accordance with Your wisdom and in Your timing. I will trust YOU."
Once I was wiling to give up "Kingfish", God led me to another home on a "King" street.
