the God show.

October 16, 2012

Last week we were hoping for a miracle.
We had not heard back about our loan
and we were supposed to close on our house on Thursday.
I was also supposed to attend the Influence Conference.
I can't be in 2 places at once so if wasn't going to be on the road to Indianapolis
I wanted to be sitting in a conference room signing papers for our new house.
We finally got an update about our loan. Bad news. They were running about a week behind.
When Thursday rolled around we canceled our closing appointment.
 So I was sitting at home, missing the conference, and not getting my house.
I was trying so hard to have a good attitude.
To not be a punk just because things weren't going my way.
And then quietly, and ever so gently,
the Lord gave me a little reminder and much needed nudge 
and whispered, "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it."
My heart swelled and tears came to my eyes.
Even though I couldn't think of crummier circumstances
this was still the day the Lord had made, it was still a good day, and I needed to rejoice in that.
I sang that verse for the rest of the day, especially when frustration began to creep back in.
Friday morning I woke up with a renewed spirit and positive attitude.
At 12pm I got a phone call from my hubby.
We got the loan. We got the house. We signed at 4pm.
We got our God show.

More house details to come... :)
