Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me (Psalm 54 v4)
Life can be hard sometimes. We all have different situations to deal with and I often wonder how people who don’t have God in their lives cope.
You see when “life” takes over and all the stress it brings it is very comforting to know that even when things appear to be going wrong or everything seems to be happening at once, the knowledge that God is in control, that he loves us and has promised to care for us, is very reassuring. With that we can be sure that somehow, if we are trusting Him, it will all work out.
When we decided we needed to move to a smaller home we had planned on taking about a year to sort out a few things on our old home and put it on the market before looking for our new place.
However for health reasons we realised that perhaps we need to get the process started…..
Lots happened that would take too long to tell you about but to give you a taste;
A few weeks later the Dr. advised that an operation was required more urgently than scheduled and to try and get it brought forward (virtually impossible in the UK) We were booked immediately after to meet with the vendor of a property we had seen to confirm our purchase offer. From there to contact hospital re surgery “oh yes we can fit you in next Tuesday (Our house was scheduled to go on the market Monday)
This would mean hubby would be “out of action” for 6 weeks and that he would not return to his job.
Um. OK Lord, we think you know what you are doing.
The legal process in England is stressful and that is another story but Gods timing is perfect.
We had a few weeks to settle into our new home (and more importantly get the cat settled) when we had a family bereavement which meant a lot of travelling for a while.
There is a lot more I could tell you about there too but this is a blog not a book ⏳
God has sustained us and provided for us through this time and many others and we know that he will continue to do so.
