Does it Matter where I live? Part 2 Prayer for Cities

Years ago my husband and I were in the thick of things trying to find our first home.  Our search took a couple of years as it seemed like every home we looked at and wanted already had an offer on it.  We felt like we were beat out every time.

One day we were at my sister in law’s home and noticed the house across the street was for sale by owner. We made an appointment to walk through it and as we did I mouthed the words, “I want this house” to my husband.  We put in an offer and became home owners.

This was our dream home but it came with one problem: it was farther away from my workplace and we already had been living a good distance away from my job.  But we wanted the house so I just did what I had to and grew accustomed to my long daily drive in to work.

At that time I was a sales manager for a large retail chain.  The long hours required plus my drive time were occasionally in conflict especially during Christmas season when we’d close late and open early.  I usually didn’t ask for schedule favors but there were times in our staff meeting I asked not to close at 11 and be scheduled to open at 5 the next day.

One of the managers always took issue with my requests which were based on drive time.  She’d say in the staff meetings, “God didn’t tell you to live in Gibsonburg”.  Silently I always thought, “How would you know?”  I was the young person on staff and did not have the posture to argue with her.  And I didn’t have a direct word from God on it; just a feeling we’d been denied homes in other cities for a reason.

The point I’d like to make related to where you live is this: You belong where you are for a reason and there might be a need to believe it even if you don’t know why at the moment.  If you stay in faith long enough;  you will know and see the manifestation of the reason for being where you are.

Apply this principle to any situation or decision you are faced with right now:

Follow the voice of God and the quiet inner leading and Go if you are being led to Go but Stay if you are being led to Stay.

The reasons for either will become clear at some point because Cities of Light are filled with people of light!
In Christ,

Undeserved Love

I’m reminded of a morning several years ago when I woke up knowing it was going to be “one of those days”.  At that time, I’d developed an allergy to ragweed – which our home is surrounded plentifully by on three sides of our property. While I didn’t get cold-like symptoms; I did feel dizzy. …

Whose Got Your Back?

I have a continuing fascination with Olympians.  Women’s gymnastics was my favorite Olympic sport to watch in 2016. Several times the gymnasts told their teammates, “I’ve got your back”.  They didn’t say this randomly but just before a teammate was about to perform. I did a quick Google search through team interviews to see if they…
