So quite a bit has happened this past month...
As many of you know, Joey and I moved in with my parents in May so we didn't have to renew our lease for another year when we knew we wanted to move into a two bedroom apartment ... with the baby coming and all. Naturally our goal was to move out before the baby was born in order to fully live life with just us and the baby. Not that I don't love my parents, we just wanted to be on our own as we start our family.
But, I will be honest, my faith on being financially able to move was at an all time low. I truly didn't believe that I could be a stay-at-home mom and somehow afford a bigger apartment.
So in we moved with my parents and settled in with the fact that this may be a year or two journey with them while we figured things out.
However, God always has a better plan for us, doesn't He? And I am so glad He does.
You see ... just this past Tuesday, a close friend let me know that there was an available two bedroom apartment next to her (literally on the same street of my parents house) and if I was interested to call the landlord. I immediately shut it down in my mind because of my negativity and thinking it wouldn't work out, because why would it? Horrible mindset I know.
But a few hours laters, I was taking a shower and just praying for God's will to be done ... knowing He always works things out and this situation wouldn't be any different. And I stood there praying, asking for a sign to be clearly shown to me.
So I get out of the shower and right away talked with my mom and the apartment and how nice it would be (sort of like a day dreaming conversion ... what if ...)
Then not more than two minutes later, this couple was walking down the street and my dad stopped them to say hi and wouldn't you know ... they were the owners of the apartment up for rent! I got the hint that God was giving me a sign. Not to mention this is the sweetest couple on the earth and Christians!! Definitely a bonus.
But long story short, Joey and I signed the papers last night are officially moving out next month into a gorgeous townhouse style two bedroom apartment and we couldn't be happier.
If you get nothing out of this story ... at least take this away ... God is moving and working in your life. You may not see it right now. You may not even feel any different. But trust me, when you least expect it, He will move. Even if you're like me in a world of doubt and negativity ... He won't give up on you. Never has and never will.
So keep the faith today and know that all things work together for good.
