8/2/10

This is the week ~ House story part...10

I don't know if it is really part 10!  I'm just guessing.

This is where we stand:
  • Our rent is paid up until the 15th
  • New owner (who would like to live in the house that he bought) gave us a notice that he is doubling the rent due on the 15th (which by the contract, he can legally do) - his way of getting us out
  • Still on the hunt to find a place to rent
  • Having a dog makes it very difficult
  • This part of the country - cost of living is very high
  • We can afford up to $900 a month and most houses rent for $1100 or more (yes, $200 out of our budget would be a big deal)
  • Most apartments are in crime filled areas or are full

Odds are stacked against us.  It's very easy to become discouraged right now and I have to fight that daily.  This is what I am standing on:

Isaiah 45:2-3 (NASB)
"I will go before you and make the rough places smooth;

I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.
"I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,
So that you may know that it is I,
The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.

  • He goes before us
  • He is the blesser of His beloved children
  • I am His child
  • He will never leave me or forsake me
  • Whom shall I fear when He will protect me
  • His strength is made perfect in my weakness
  • Yet I will rejoice in my God, YAHWEH
I know the One who holds the key!

Absolutely!!!!!!!!!!! These are His truths.
Remember that Daniel only saw the miracle of God closing the mouths of the lion after he was thrown in the pit! You will live to tell the story of God's miracle.
Since I have been where you are and may again, I can say, what you fear is sooooooooooo much greater than what will happen!
It is sooooooooo hard to trust and not be shaken when you have children with you on this journey...we had four at time, two were adults and on their own.
You will see His hand...stay strong...be courageous.
My prayers are with you during this season....and soooo soooooo sorry!!!

Ouch! No fun. If only God would explain His plans for our lives we wouldn't have to worry. :) Seems like He often gives us just enough light to see right in front of us but not very far down the road. Though I know it's not easy, I encourage you to keep trusting. Thanks for keeping us posted.
