A little over six months ago, I was praying that God would help me find a house. I was at a place in my life where I had/have a great job, great church family, and was/am surrounded by amazing friends here in Lubbock. I knew this was where I wanted to be.
Someone at church mentioned that I should look at the For Sale by Owner website. Well, pretty soon I found my house. I had a blast getting it situated and making it my own, and enjoyed the contributions my parents and friends made to help me get it where I wanted it.
This weekend my brother and his family planned to come visit me. I was excited to have a place to house all of them. Late Friday afternoon my aunt called and said there were no more hotels available and asked if she and my uncle could stay at my house. I was so excited because I was hoping they would stay with me. My aunt, uncle, brother, sister-in-law, niece, and two nephews all arrived Friday night within five minutes of each other.
We spent the weekend going to see my cousin perform with Best Friends at LCU, eating, talking, and enjoying each other's company. Last night as I prayed, I just thanked God for giving me this home and a place for me to enjoy the people I love. This morning it was awesome to have my brother and his family go to church with me and worship with the church I love so much!
In our Sunday morning kids class that I teach, we have been studying how God takes care of his people. I am reminded everyday how blessed I am by God. I am amazed at how he answers prayer and provides for my every need. He graciously provided me with this house,and I love being able to share it with family and friends.
Please pray that God will help me be a good steward of what he has given me.
