This past few weeks, my wife and I tried to buy a house to settle here in Oxford, Alabama. Like any other procedure where lots of money is at stake, our process of home ownership was arduous and long. After much prayer and high hopes, the Lord blocked us from buying two houses in town that we wanted.

I accept His decision. God knows best. He always does… I wonder though why this happened and what might come next.

Yes, there is a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3). “”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7. We have… in God’s time under His will we shall.

In my chair, I wait. There must be a very good reason for it. A Godly reason. The future? It is up to God. The present? A gift.
