In light of the financial news of today, I love my rental house. I always thought I was a person of great faith until we had to sell our home in Atlanta and move to NYC. It took us 2 years (2005-2007) to sell our home. The interesting thing is that our house sold at exactly the specific time in our lives when we absolutely 100 percent HAD to sell. God brought just the right family and it sold. I learned more about praying with persistence and with endurance through those 2 years than any other time in my life. I learned that God's timing is NEVER my timing and that I don't have a clue what He has in store for me - I just have to trust Him. He gave our family the most beautiful rental house last Spring on the Island, complete with a swing set in the backyard and a separated living room for my piano and music stuff. Today has been a really tough day for so many people and my heart breaks for them. For me, today has been a reminder of God's lavish blessings that I really don't deserve.
