Well, this is not the post that I spoke of in my writing yesterday, but I just wanted to share how God is at work.
We have been trying to sell my husbands truck for about nine weeks. We had placed it in a parking lot along a very busy roadway in our neighboorhood with a "for-sale" sign in the window. In the eight weeks that it sat in that parking lot we had one phone call about it. We were quickly becoming discouraged. We believed that it was God's will for us to sell this vehicle as we had worked out a deal to buy a larger truck, one that all three of us can ride in together, from my father-in-law. We are trying to be fiscally responsible with our money and not go into debt for this vehicle upgrade.
This week we moved the truck to another location, not in our neighboorhood thanks to the assistance of one of our friends. In the three days that this truck was in this new location, there have been countless calls; and praise God we think we have a buyer! And, as a bonus we are getting the price we needed.
God's timing is perfect. He knows our every need. He saw our faithfulness and has answered our prayer. I believe that this happened because we held fast to the right attitude. When we began to become discouraged we didn't get upset. We didn't begin to question 'why'. We just held fast to our faith and kept on praying.
Then as a final punctuation to this answer to prayer we learned today that it is going to cost less to transfer the title and purchase the tag that we had originally planned.
It is amazing how when we search for God and keep an open heart, He is so faithful to show us His love and He allows us to see His hand at work in our lives.
