Lately, I have run out of runway. My troubles begin at home, my DollHouse. She is quite literally beginning to show her age. First, the entire gas line sprung a leak and required replacing. Then, the roof gave out, destroying my champagne colored sitting room. And today, the main water pipe leaked all over the basement floor!
I am so agitated that even praying about these items feels like another "to do" list.
Remember God's solutions to our crises comes from HIM alone, not Oprah, not a best friend, not even grandma. God can solve every problem, if we just take it to HIM and wait for an answer.
As I sat quietly in the living room, surrounded by stacks of clothes rescued from a water logged closet, I began to flip through my prayer journal. For over a year, I had been praying for a renovated home with new appliances and an additional third floor. And today…I am forced to begin renovating. Hmmmm.....
[And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.] Romans 8:28
There can be no growth without demolition.
Thanks be to God, unbeknownst to me, the renovation has begun.
God answers prayers. This is a promise, darling
