I'm happy to announce that after 5 years of praying and hoping and almost losing hope at some times, my household is Finally Moving. :D
We're saying goodbye to the stinky city which has been something of a little prison for almost 11 years for some of us...less for others (but still much too long in their opinion). No one here is a big appreciator of urban life and it was beginning to drain the life out of us. Our persistent prayer to Him was to put us in the country, get us out of this loud, obnoxious place with its fence of cell towers. Another winter here was really looking like impending torture. One member of the house even declared he would pack up and start walking to greener pastures even if he had to be homeless lol.
Then YHWH answered us. We are moving to the country. Nothing but sheep, goats, chickens and fields. There's no lines on the roads and a cell tower isn't visible from the house. The yard is a big mess of grass as tall as a human being and the inside is dying for a deep cleaning but it's our mess and its a blessing. This time next year there might be goats and chickens in our own back yard.
We learned a great lesson through all of this. Never give up when you're praying an earnest prayer for something...even when it takes years to hear an answer.... He knows and cares for your needs, and He won't hand you a stone when you've asked for bread. His timing is perfect, but His timing isn't your timing. Faith is never forgetting you know that.
All thanks and praise to Our Father in Heaven who cares for us.
