We sold our house this week.
Actually, we didn’t sell our HOUSE, we sold our HOME! The truth is, at this moment, I have no idea why we sold it. A few months back we had a contract on a dream property and tried to sell our house then but it did not sell. We gave up the “Dream” property for various reasons and let some months go by before doing anything.
Just praying, listening and waiting to hear God’s plan.
MANY-MANY-MANY things are going on in our lives right now that fall into the “WAITING ON GOD” prayer bucket. Ministry things. Family things. Personal things.
A few weeks back we felt God tell us to place the house back on the market. It sold in 8 days.
So, this will be our families 20th and last Thanksgiving in THIS house.
I have no idea where we will move or what God is doing next.
Can you relate? Have you veer been or are you NOW in a place of unknowns? A place of wondering what God is doing and where He is leading?
Next year, June 9, 2014 will be my 30 Year Anniversary with Jesus. I have walked through many days of listening, waiting, hanging on to His promises and HE IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL.
This morning, in my prayer journal, I listed all the things that I am waiting to hear from God about on one side of one page.
On the other side I started writing out my THANKSGIVING Praises. That took 5 pages 🙂
Then, with tears running down my face I did something I don’t always do, I save it for special moments–prompted by The Holy Spirit, I ask God to speak a WORD to me. A Rhema Word.
A living, life changing WORD to remind me that He Hears Me.
He knows what I need.
I plopped my Bible open and this is what God gave me this morning:
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
Happy Thanksgiving my friend. May God speak His Rhema Word into your heart as you wait on Him, as you give Him praise and Thanksgiving!
I am VERY Thankful for the many, many hearts and words that you share with me here on this little blog!
In His Grip,
