Announcement Part 6— I'm moving!

Announcement Part 6— I'm moving!

Announcement Part 5— I'm moving!

As I was struggling to trust God that the "Kingfish" home was Not HIS Best for me, God made sure that I was at church for a service which the song and message were "just for me". 

The Song: "Rejoice in the Lord" by Ron Hamilton

God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried
And purified,
I shall come forth as gold.
Pastor Osborne's sermon from Sunday Night, April 26, 2015. 

"We must cultivate a strong desire to go deeper Spiritually.
We must trust God to control the circumstances around us.
God is sovereign.
God is in charge of all things.
God's plan will be done. So trust it.
You don't have to manipulate people, Trust God, love people.
Spend time daily making ourselves beautiful for the King of kings
with spiritual strength, spiritual dignity, and spiritual humility. "

Once I was wiling to give up "Kingfish", God led me to another home on a "King" street.

There were very nice features about this house. It was very close to Church, it had 3 bedrooms, carpet throughout, a small screened in porch, and enough room for my parents and me. No pool, but as I said before, that was a want, because there were other options for a pool. 

Overall this home looked like it was now the "perfect" one. It needed a good cleaning, but other than that, it was move-in-ready. So, placed a bid and waited. 

Could this be THE HOME!?? 

As I waited, I was excited to how close to Church it was. It would allow me to even go home and do a pain treatment between SS and the Morning Services when necessary. And it was still within the driving distance to my Drs. 

I was trying not to "move in" to this home. But in my mind, I thought it was so right. I've said before that I'm not a good 'waiter', but God knows that during the waiting time, He can teach me to trust Him and remember that He makes no mistakes. He knows what is best. 

I finally heard the news on this "King" house.... I was the High bidder! Wow! That's great.... BUT..... 

BUT.... BUT.... BUT..... I don't like that word... BUT... that means a problem. And yes, there was a problem. They could not guarantee a clean title. So, the answer was "No, thank you". And there went another "perfect" house. 

Back to house hunting. I was having trouble understanding what God was doing. First, "Kingfish"—a pool but not enough rooms, then this "King" home—enough rooms, but no pool. 

Perhaps it was time to step back and take a break from house hunting. It was time to renew my apartment lease and maybe waiting until next year to pursue  buying a house is the best plan.
