Learning Patience is NOT Fun
Patience is not one of my strengths, so God is really working on me right now. We went to Enid this past weekend to look for a home to rent/lease. The prices there are just crazy expensive and the choices are so limited - it is unreal. It is because it is a military town and over 100 new pilots will be coming in the next few weeks so the demand is very high for rentals. We found a home that we love and would be able to lease for a couple of years and then purchase, but after looking at our budget we just decided that it isn't wise for us to have a mortgage payment and take on a rent payment. So, starting next weekend (June 5th) we will probably stay in a hotel in Enid Friday-Monday and stay at our home in Keller Tuesday-Thursday until our home sells or some sort of schedule like that. This is NOT my first pick - at all, but God is in control. I'm learning to be patient - it is a daily thing I have to work on. Keep us in your prayers. I know God has the buyer for our house already lined up and it is all in His timing. I only wish that sometimes His timing was the same timing as mine. LOL. I'm so thankful for the things He has done for us already - like giving us this amazing job at the church in Enid. We are SO excited about the next phase of our lives there and I think that is what makes the waiting even harder b/c our hearts & our minds are THERE and I'm ready to be there full time and not part time. I know so many of you can relate to this and have been through it yourselves. If you have any tips, scriptures, etc. that helped you through please pass on. :) I know all things work together for His purpose.
