So our recent move was a fiasco. The lady from our new place didn’t move out on the day she was supposed to and didn’t bother to tell anyone about until the day before! We had two and one-third loads of stuff and no where to put it! I had rented a 14ft. truck because a 26 footer is a little hard to wield around the small city streets of Cambridge. We ended up having to put a little pressure on her to clear some space to get at least one load in the house. Then the next day we came at 1pm with our second load and she still wasn’t out. What a nightmare!
On top of that, it’s our busiest and most exciting time of year for ministry. Someon please remind me not to move on September 1 ever again.
During all this I was freshly reminded that the only one we can truly rely on is God. He is perfect and faithful. He never goes back on His word. He is constant, unchanging. I have to admit, I was downright angry with this woman for not being out on time because it made our lives more difficult. I tried hard not to say too much around her because I wanted to be careful to represent Christ well. I think God allows us to have these challenges in our lives to see how we will respond. Will we uphold His name and His glory or will we bow to the pressure of the moment? Sadly, there are times I get caught up in the moment and don’t respond well, but this time I did OK, and it was a fresh reminder that people will let us down but God never will.
