My son has finally slept through the first night in a long time, and of course I’ve been tossing and turning a lot, finally getting out of bed. Unfortunately, sleep isn’t solely tied to him. Yesterday we received an offer on our house, and we found a house that we really like in our new city.
It feels like so much to coordinate in a small amount of time (the offer on our home was for an August 1st possession). While questions swirl around in my mind, I know that this offer could very well fall through. I also know that we could make an offer on the house that I am honestly in love with (I tried to not fall in love with it too early, but to no avail) and it could fall through.
We are truly in a place where God has this in his hands. That should make me feel completely safe! However, control is something that I’ve been working on in my own life. Here are some of the amazing little things God has been doing over the last few days, partially to encourage you, but mostly for me to see that his hand is truly at work.
My husband and I were doing our evening bible reading, and we came across this verse in Proverbs 11:28.
Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring.
After we read that, my husbands phone went off and reminded him of the verse he had put in there to meditate on.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
The night before we went house hunting, I had a dream that I was standing in a field praying to the Lord, and glowing white hands of God burst through the clouds from heaven and spoke that he had us in his hands, that we were called to this new place, and he would take care of us.
So with this powerful image and these verses in mind, we listed our home and headed off to look for a new one.
While standing in the kitchen of the house I fell in love with, I know finances and details were in the forefront of both our minds. I looked up and saw this sign.
After looking at houses, we went for supper, pouring over the sheets of house details, and anxiously awaiting the phone call regarding the offer our house was to receive.
We paid for our meal and walked out to find $20.00 laying on the ground. We tried to find who dropped it, but everyone in the restaurant told us it was ours to keep. It wasn’t a huge thing, but it was like God said “supper’s on me”.
Returning home, we found two unexpected cheques waiting for us.
Expect a miracle. Expect that when you walk in the will of God he WILL direct your path. Expect that he will provide and take care of you even when you’re taking a step of faith.
So I’m going to take a deep breath, thank God for these miracles so far, release today’s anxieties and expect that he is going to come through on our behalf.
Wow, my God is truly so good.
