A Heart Trusting in Him

I wrote this on April 26th. The next day we got approved for our apartment. God answers a heart that fully trusts in Him!

The move is in less than 3 weeks and we have no definite apartment yet. But it's been that way for us since the very beginning. Before I initially moved up here last year, I didn't have a place to live until a few days prior. Then, before we got married, the place we would have lived in fell through and we were without a place to live, until a week before I came to Oklahoma for the wedding. It worked out other times, so I'm surprisingly not worried in the least bit. It will work out again.

God is great :-)

Here is a verse I read today from Psalm 107:4-9, and it really speaks hope to me and Rob. We've felt like we've been in this wilderness, and this isn't where we are supposed to dwell. It's been very, very difficult. Yet we've never ceased to cry out to the Lord, and He is answering us out of our distresses. He is leading us to our dwelling place. Truly, He satisfies the longing soul. Be encouraged today :-)

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;
They found no city to dwell in.
Hungry and thirsty,
Their soul fainted in them.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He delivered them out of their distresses.
And He led them forth by the right way,
That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.
