Did you ever think about how saying one nice thing to someone could change their whole day, their whole way of thinking around?
This happened to me. For the past couple of weeks I have really been struggling with housing. Ok… probably for a lot more than two weeks. It just really came to a head in the past two weeks. I was depressed…no getting around that. I just couldn’t see my way clear.
As I was struggling with my depression, and as a result, my faith and optimism to some extent, a friend said something that stopped me in my tracks. He said “God wouldn’t lead you this far to abandon you now.” Holy crud! He’s right! The devil was having a good old time with my doubts and I let him! I was also battling a cold/stomach bug and not winning.
That was that. I realized that I had been indulging in self-pity and had ceased to listen for God’s call. I had internalized something that another friend had said to me about life not being a movie. Maybe not, but here’s the thing: When you follow God’s Will, His Will gets done! So, no, life is not a freaking card company movie! It’s so much better than that if you just listen for His guiding voice!
Where will we live? No idea. How will we get all our stuff put into a small apartment? Not sure. I will do the scut work, but God will have to figure out the rest. He is in charge. This isn’t forever, it’s for now. Until He leads me on the next journey.
