God is faithful. He has proven this to me over and over and over.
There are times when it is easy to trust and other times that rock my little Amber world and the very core of who I am, yet He can always be trusted.
We all know Amber wants to hit the mission field right? Well, I am sure God will keep His promise and allow me to eventually. Things have been working together for that goal to be reached recently. I have struggled with bits and pieces of the puzzle, however, HE is working it and making it come together!
So, all of that being said my Amber world was thrown a little off kilter yesterday. God has been leading me so clearly toward selling my house. Scripture and circumstances as well as friend's have all been confirming that. When I was worried about the reaction of my family to me selling my house, He "assured" me with this:.
“Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given
up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property,
for my sake and for the Good News, will receive now in return a hundred
times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—
along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have
eternal life. But many who are the greatest now will be least important
then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.”
So yesterday I received a message from my realtor stating that the girl who made the offer on my house isn't positive she wants my house yet because she might be getting a job on the north side of Cincy...
So of course Amber was immediately worried...but I went immediately into the Word and opened up my summer Bible study, which is phenomenal...seriously, best study for me in quite a while...it was about trusting God as God. So, I did the study, prayed and went to work. And I have had peace since then...peace that passes all understanding...
It may not work the way I think it will, but as I have said, and believe...as long as I love Him and bring Him glory, "All things will work together."
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a
gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. "
