As I was considering what to post for this Monday, I remembered the Monday meme, More of Him, that Farrah had discovered last week. The premise is to share either a scripture passage or particular event when you felt God speaking to you.
Last week I shared about the house that we are in the process of buying. We have sensed the Lord's leading in this direction and have been trusting Him to work out the details. That trust was put to the test this weekend! We got an email from the bank late Friday afternoon that there has been a glitch in our loan application. The bank had pre-qualified us before we ever made an offer on the house, but apparently they have now discovered that, based on our income, we don't qualify for the type of loan we had first applied for. The banker said he would need to see what else was available, but the terms will probably not be as good as we were first quoted. What in the world does that mean? What if we don't agree to the new terms? And what a thing to throw at us on a Friday evening for us to have to stew about all weekend!! You can imagine all the things that have been going through our minds all weekend. What if we have to come up with more money? What if we don't get the house? What if we have to keep renting?
All the what if's... and uncertainties...
But you know what? God is still in control. He reminded me again (as He has many times before) that the only thing I ever truly want is His will. In all things. If it's God will for us to get this house, we will. And if it isn't His will, then I don't want it. So that settles it. I'm at peace, either way.
(Just wish I knew which way it's going to go! In His time, Karla. In His time.)
