So hey everyone! This is my first post here, so excuse any mistakes or how irrelevant things seem. 🙂
Anyways, my family and I are currently trying to move so we can be closer to our church (which is currently 50 minuets away) and so that we can have more space to grow things and stuff.
Anywho, every time that we find a house, it’s immediately sold. We’ve even placed some offers on some, but we lost. It’s quite frustrating because so many of the houses seem like they’d be a perfect fit for out eight person family. And every time that we lose a bid, or a house gets snatched up, my sister always says, “If we didn’t get it, then God doesn’t want us to live there.” Or something along the lines of that.
We’ve prayed many times, but we have yet to find something, and our houses have yet to sell. So what on earth is God doing? Well the answer is simple: it’s not on earth that God is planning for my family, it’s in Heaven. His thoughts are above our’s, he can see the ultimate ending. We’ve just got to believe in him.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.Proverbs 16:3 NIV
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.Isaiah 43:2 NIV
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reapor store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father
feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?Matthew 6:26 NIV
