But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him. — 1 John 2:27
And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. — 1 John 2:28
We moved into our new temporary home today. It is more than I could have ever imagined but isn’t that what God says, He is more than we can ever imagine.
I feel so blessed that words can’t even describe it.
We are still waiting on the insurance to “process” the new adjustment for the repairs to our house. They said that should take them 10 to 14 working days. Which amazes me since right after the hurricane last year when there were 10’s of thousands of claims it was done in a matter of days.
However I am so thankful for the housing that God has provided, and miraculously we had exactly the amount of money to put down the deposit and first months rent.
For here, during the peak season, when rentals are only done by the week, and run in the thousands per week. The owners of this place let us have it on a month to month basis. They charged us less than they could have, and have been renting it per week.
Please say a prayer for these owners who could have made 4 times the money by renting to the tourist but found it in their hearts to let us have it for not just a month but for as many months as we need. Taking a huge loss to their bottom line.
Praise the LORD for His loving mercy. He sure does things in such a way that it can’t be denied.
I appreciate all of your prayers for our family. We still have a long road, and we are not waiting for the insurance to start to pay the contractor. We are going to the house everyday and doing all the work we can. And at night we are washing, and cleaning everything that can be salvaged from the mold exposure.
Tonight as I type this, listening to the washer and dryer. I am blessed to be in a safe, clean, temporary home. Looking out over the ocean, and all its beauty.
