is my Strength!
My husband and I have put our mini-farm on the market…again! We did this once before in 2005 and the Lord did not sell it. Our plans to move back to Florida were thwarted; however, it has become very apparent that it was not God’s good acceptable and perfect will for our lives (Romans 12.2)
Last summer, I made the BIG mistake of previewing a home on a private lake, which was on the market. Oh my! My heart leaped inside of me – this WAS God’s will for our life. The next day we had a realtor come out to our place and he was a total bummer – “This is not the time to sell – you will only get xxx amount for your home and land.”
I was not happy but I refused to allow a house (even though it was on a lake) to rob me of my joy.
So, here we are, third time. Three’s a charm, right? The “season to sell” feels right – we desire to move closer to our daughter and grandkids, and do quite a bit of down-sizing.
My one prayer is this: that regardless of the outcome I will have Godly contentment and my joy will remain intact.
Today is a special day to our Lord. Don’t be sad, because the joy of the Lord will make you strong. Nehemiah 8.10 (ERV)
