This blog entry is proving to be rather short tonight. Our host decided to get everything moved today. We got a good portion of the house done. One more move under our belt, another roof over our heads. I wish we could afford this house! It is beautiful! The arches, southwestern design, the tile, and even the color of the walls would be very much to my liking! It would take a MIRACLE for that to happen… but oh this house would be perfect! Not to big, not to small, just right for what I would want… but alas unless we win the lottery without playing, I guess it just one more roof over our heads for now.
Night two of Murray being on the night shift…. Praise the Lord for his job! If nothing else, it gives us hope for the future. Somehow, someway, the Lord knows where we will be next. Just the wait and anticipation is sometimes troubling.
I have been reminded over and over today of one of my favorite scriptures when I am getting stressed….
Pro 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Pro 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Trust is a big word, an action word. But also is a quiet word, for God also tells us to stop and wait.
Psa 37:34 Wait for the LORD and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off.
Sometimes that is one of the hardest things to do, is to stop and wait. To let the Lord move without trying to help him, specially when there are so many people around you who think that that waiting is madness on your part, or just plain laziness.
As for tonight, I am exhausted from a difficult stressful day. It is time for rest and recuperation, to get up and do it all over again. Praise be to the Lord who has EVERYTHING in hand, so that we don’t have to!
