Are you kidding me?! Pt 2

….The Lord is faithful and here is the continued story from a previous post titled: 
Walking out life trusting the Lord is not as easy/convenient/fun as it may sound.
When the Lord tells you one thing, it seems that everyone else has something different to say:
~get your resume’ together
~move to KC
~women’s shelter
~live with your outlaws
~move to TN
~craigslist
~go back to school
~Mclean Bible website
~move to Wisconsin
..just to name a few
This lead me to open up the Word of God and see if there wasn’t someone else who God told to do something that didn’t really make sense and see how they handled it:
vs14Make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in the ark…Make a roof for the ark.. and  put the door of the ark in its side; make it with lower, second and third decks. For my part, I am going to bring a flood of waters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. But I will establish my covenant with you; and you shall come into the ark, you , your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.”

vs22″Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.” 

If you are a serious theologian, then you know that a huge flood came, there were lots of animals, 2×2 on the arc, and everyone on the earth, except the arc dwellers, died. 
I decided to listen to the Lord. I waited. I trusted…
except that one time when I got on craigslist and got a heavenly smack on the hand.

The thing was that I could have stayed in the apartment but I just didn’t have the money for it minor details. I had to be out, or write a check by the 7th of January.
A check, from a random person, was handed to me on the 3rd of January.
And this continued, getting a check from random people, 

FOR 7 MONTHS!!!

I put in my notice but found out it was a 60 day notice instead of a 30 day And of course I blogged about it It’s time….
The rent was paid for until I officially moved out on August 8th.
When the Lord says to wait & trust the only thing to do is wait & trust. 
HE is ridiculously faithful. 
Stupid faithful.
I promise.
Then HE told me to go and I went….
but that is a whole ‘nother story.
Thanks for reading.

Bags are packed!

I have a home. I am moving tomorrow. 
I will be in the exact neighborhood that I have been praying & wanting to live in. 
It is a better situation than I could have planned. 
I have trips planned every month till the end of the year. 
I am getting licensed to do hair! 
My daughter will start school next week and I will be 29 next month. 
Crazy.
And I remember what the Lord has allowed in my life in order to get me to this place. 
Not at all thinking that life will never again be as hard as it was, but, knowing that 
when I go through another battle, the Lord is faithful.
He provides. 
 He is gracious.
He loves with an ardent love.
 He is up to so much good.
He allows crazy things in our lives for the story that He is writing.
He is a master storyteller and a much better writer than I will ever be.

Bare legs

The story continues…. I look forward to the new year when I will be able to write the chapter of how the Lord came through for my housing situation. I am almost sure of what is going to happen but I will keep as quiet about it as I can until I am actually moved. God is so wonderful in how he operates. I am so thankful to HIM for working all of this out. There is no way I could of thought up this plan. It is BETTER than I could have planned it. I love that the Lord works like that. He is so gracious. Although I am ready for the next chapter to come, I must stay in these pages so that I can get to know my character more. So I can see how she operates at “such a time as this”.
