No Room

““What delight comes to you when you wait upon the Lord! For you will find what you long for.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:4‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Waiting takes patience. Waitng requires trust. Waiting moves us to places we could never go before. Waiting is always worth it.

I had three words at the beginning of the year: Pray. Wait. Trust. Do you know that I actually forgot my words this year? I guess COVID season hit and I just forgot. However, if Iook back on the last six months this has most certainly been the running theme.

I have been praying and waiting and trusting with this whole house thing for almost a year now and I feel I am in the same spot as when my husband left. Thankfully some wonderful people have come to complete some of the work and I am forever grateful but there is so much more to do.

I have been presented with a few offers for estimates and I am taking that HUGE leap on Monday. I had a dream last night about double portion and today I remembered a single thought I had in the dream as I watched grocery items begin to multiply as the cashier rang them up. I remember thinking, “Where am I going to put all of this? I have no room in the freezer. There is no room in the non existent cupboards. There simply is no room for all of this.”

No room. Where have we heard this before? Oh! I know! The story about the birth of Jesus. There was no room anywhere. No room for the King of Kings to be born. No room for his head to lay. No room for the man who was the savior of the world. No room.

For me, in this moment of time, there is no room for a contractor in my budget. I have been saying this for a year. I can’t afford it. There is not enough money. I am just going to have to figure this out. I know God will finish the house. I know He has a plan.

What if the plan IS to hire someone?

I decided today I was going to make room for the goodness of God. Who says my God won’t supply the finances to pay a contractor? I will never know if I don’t at least get estimates. There are times when God needs us to move in the waiting. There are times when He needs us to trust Him completely and to do the things we see as impossible. This is a moment where my faith has got to outweigh my fear. This is where my belief must go farther than my what ifs.

There is no room for doubt. There is no room for unbelief. There is no room for the impossible when I serve a God who created the universe and gives me my daily breath.
