It’s been a while since I wrote a Weekly Devotional, that’s because I’ve been involved in the long tedious process of mortgages, loans, sales, and purchases which are all part of the current housing market. Yes, my wife Cheryl, my mother in law Carol, and I now live under one roof in our home in Itasca. In order to get here we had to sell four properties (one which was “under water”, one which was sold at no profit to my daughter Diana, and one which was sold at probate) as well as get approved for the purchase of the house in Itasca. Folks, it was a logistical nightmare, especially since the underwriters of today are extremely cautious and very picky. It was one of those situations where you do your best and leave the rest to the Almighty. It was once of those situations where you lifted it all to God in prayer. It was one of those situations where you don’t allow yourself to get caught up in the egotistical games people play, instead you allow the ways of the Lord to lead your decisions. It was amazing watching God at work through this whole tedious complicated, worldly process. Yes, God knows the mortgage business, the housing market, the legal ramifications, better than anyone else, because He is God. All I had to do is not let my ego get the better of me, and in so doing step out of the way, and let God do his thing! And, by God, He did!
