ask, seek, knock

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." Matthew 7:7

maybe you can guess what i am asking and seeking for this Christmas ... a home ...*smile* ... i will gladly knock on it’s door, so that the Lord can open it to us ...

after having the security of our little cottage for so many years ... it is a weird thing to be gathering boxes, to prepare for a move ...

even weirder at this time of year - Christmas ... there is almost 2 feet of snow outside ... uh, we do have a shed to empty out and some other outdoor items to dig out ... hmmm??? what were we thinking ...

ask, seek, knock ...

we have asked the Lord, we are seeking and there are a few possibilities ... but we will keep knocking until the right one opens up ...

"... your Father knows the things you have need of BEFORE you ask Him ... " Matthew 6:8

"Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" ... Matthew 6:26

Jesus words are a comfort ... they boost my confidence for the days ahead ... as well as calming my fears regarding Leo’s ability to cope with this move ...

i think my body and my faith will both be getting exercise after the Christmas feasting is over ...

"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:8 ...

jeanette ... i talked to the buyer for about 40 minuts on friday nite, she was a very sweet lady who offered to extend time to us, etc (Lord willing, we will stick to the february 15th date to be out) ... i just hope they love this place as much as we've loved it ... it will be their summer cottage - they live in the city ...

mrsd ... your prayer on our behalf is SO appreciated! thank you!

I understand what you are going through. I feel God is calling us somewhere else but I have no idea where...thanks for the reminders. I love that verse: "Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" ... Matthew 6:26
Wonderful. I'll be praying for you, my friend.
