There is nothing like a little stressful situation in your life to make you realize who the boss really is! I wake up in prayer and I fall asleep at night in prayer. But during the day we often get sidetracked with life. Yesterday was no exception. We thought we would be able to move into a beautiful rental home. Then the land lord, a used car sales owner, changed his mind. Have you ever bought a car and when you get down to the details of it all, the fight is on? That is what happened to us. If we had the kind of money he wanted up front we would probably be an heir to Bill Gates! Enough said.

So I claim this verse as my daily reminder "Teach me your way, O Lord; I will walk in your truth." Psalm 86:11

I feel like I need this  because I get caught up with everyone else in what is going on. Today we are going to see a beautiful house we drove and see if the lady will work with us and make a comfortable rental deal. It is three blocks from the fire station off a busy main road. It has a beautiful privacy fence and enough bedrooms for all of us. Pray for us. I hope you will not tire of me asking. I am bold when it comes to God and prayer together. I think it is a winning combination.

I was reading a little daily scripture that I read every single day and have since 1987 and I thought this analogy was terrific to break down God's word. There was a man who shot an arrow on the side of a barn. He walked up to the barn and painted a bulls eye around the arrow. It is so easy to get caught up in this world and trust our own instincts when in reality we know God's are on target.

I will leave you today on Spiritual Sunday with this verse " There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end is the way of death." Proverbs 14:12

Please stop by and thank Charlotte and Ginger for hosting this soul feeding Sunday fest. Go here to join us. Have a wonderful week.

I can tell how disappointed you are about the rental agreement not going through. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. God has the absolutely perfect home for you. So be patient and keep trusting in His promises. I will pray for you about this today! Love you.

Praying that your new deal on your rental is blessing by God's hand and it's better than you anticipated. Praising God for believing in this already. Have a wonderful day and be sure to let us know how it goes.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I will most definitely say a prayer that things go in your favor with this one. It sounds like it would be a wonderful fit for your Phamily!

Anne, that just wasn't the right house, everything will work out as it should, there is a house for you out there..I know you are limited in which area due to Nick being in school will work out, hopefully the house you looked at today will be IT.

This reminds me that when God closes a door he opens another one. Also, I find that He is always right on target.
Have a blessed week.

As hard as it was to cope with - Its probably a good thing you had your disagreement with the "snake oil" saleman before getting locked into a rental agreement and a messy situation.

I hope you find the "right" place and soon!
