It finally happened. We sold our house. In September we spent days then weeks considering a job offer for Tim. In the end, we felt God leading to us a new adventure. Everything happened so fast, and God was clear in His signs. So, we expected our house to sell fast.
Tim started his new job on November 14. We bought a house in SC, because we knew ours would sell soon. It didn't.
Somebody once told me when we ask God a question about timing He can answer one of three ways. Yes. Not yet. My timing is better.
Many times I reminded myself that God's timing is perfect. I believed He'd move me at the best time.
Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint...
During our months apart, Tim has spent hours at his new place of employment. He's gotten to know the residents and staff and he's been learning the way the new place works.
Lamentations 3:25-26 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord
During our months apart, I studied for the South Carolina law exam. I prayed as I studied, and I prayed during the exam, and I passed.
We each faced trials while apart, and we learned to lean on God in different ways.
God has his own sense of timing: ‘With the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day’ (2 Peter 3:8, AMP).
I think our love and appreciation for each other has grown. And in a couple of weeks, when we are both under the same roof, we are going to thank God together as we start our new phase of life.
I'm going to take a couple of weeks off from writing my blog. I need to finish packing the house for our move and then to get settled. But I will be back. Until then, take care and remember, God's timing is perfect.
