Faith. I'm just Sayin' . . .
Hope and belief in the goodness or trustworthiness, of a person, concept, or entity, despite insufficient or contradictory evidence.
The last few weeks have flown by in a blur of family, friends, deeds, titles, banks, Realtors, road trips, and doctors appointments. There is always a list of things to do before making a move.
In most areas, I'd say the Army really has it together - concerning it's families.
But with moving? They've dropped the ball, baby.
Briefly - you have to totally sign out of one post before signing in to another.
A wise man once said, "When crossing a stream, never take one foot off a stepping stone until the other foot is firmly planted!"
Well, that's exactly what we have to do!
We have the movers pick up our belongings, but with no forwarding address it all goes to storage.
We stop our mail, and it just collects at the Post Office until we are settled.
We suspend TV and Internet accounts until we are in a new home. (You get the idea.)
Basically, we're in limbo!
We travel to our new state and move into a hotel, find a realtor and, as quickly as possible, find a new home.
Now usually by this time, I've run Web checks on every realtor in the area and have poured over so many available house listings that I'm seeing them in my sleep! And what can I do armed with all this knowledge?
The time line is fixed. We cannot view and rent a new home until we are out of the old.
It all comes down to faith.
God has always and will always provide.
Now if my heart would just accept what my eyes read . . .
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith.
It takes a lot of faith to have faith.
I'm just sayin' . . .
