January 2009 Update: Housing Update (from newsletter)
“I’m Glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess – happy that you’re again showing
such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it.
Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty.
Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.
I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me – it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles.”
I think Paul puts it pretty well in this passage, and although I am no scholar and don’t know exactly what kind of circumstance he was going through, his gratefulness to others and his contentment in God is really touching…
I think Angela and I can relate to this passage as I am sure so many of you can as well…
To this date we are not sure what God is doing with our housing situation, but that has paled into insignificance of how He has been working in us and showing us that the best place to be is to rest in the assurance that He is in control and our part is to be obedient with our steps…
Please pray for us though, as we wait to see what we need to do.
We love you all and thank you for your prayer. As of this moment, we are packed up and ready to go. We are living off the bare necessities and are just waiting for something to happen. We will keep everyone informed as we know more. ☺
P.S. It is kind of funny though that we are almost into February and we are still here when our original eviction date was Sept 14th (or thereabouts)
