solc22 #24 lazy river

Have you ever been to a water park and ridden the “Lazy River” ride? The kind where you get in the water – the pool is a narrow channel like a river, hence the name – and grab a large tube as it floats by. You hop on, lay back, and enjoy the ride. The water is flowing and moving you along and all you need to do is – enjoy!

That is how I feel about this house adventure we are currently in the midst of. We had prayed about finding “the right house at the right time” for quite some time. Meanwhile we were enjoying our home of 17 years and quite certain that in today’s crazy real estate market we would not be able to make a move any time soon.

But God had other plans. I told a friend at lunch one day last summer about our hopes of finding a one story house, and within two weeks she called me and told me she had found one. Someone actually called her to tell her about it. The long story unfolded in ways we could never have imagined or even hoped for. Now we have bought this house that came our way, sold our longtime home, moved temporarily to the lake cabin we own, had lots of demo completed, and are ready to start the “finish work” that will make this “new” house our home.

There have been times along the way when we have faced challenges, and other times when we weren’t sure of the next steps. But we have never doubted because we know, deep in our hearts, that this is God’s plan for us. Undeserved, but very deeply appreciated.

So at all times – days of uncertainty or exciting progress – we feel like we are being swept along this amazing ride, and held up by His generous and loving Hand.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
