It’s been said that one of the top stressors in life is moving. My husband and I have had some experience with that. We have moved twice in the past five years. Now we are moving again. Our landlords are selling the condo where we have lived for the past three years.
So we started looking right away. I downloaded some apps for my phone which helped us find some available condos for rent. We liked the first place we looked at, but decided we should wait a week and look around more just to be sure.
The truth is, I was dragging my feet. I knew we had to move quickly, as rentals around here come and go. And we really liked the place. But I hated the idea of moving out of our community. It is close to work and church and shopping and yet set back off the road. It is a peaceful place. It is home.
“Let’s wait one more week for something else to come up,” I told my husband. He agreed. One more week.
So the next morning I looked at the rental app to see what was new. I was so happy to see that there was a condo right in our same community. That had been my hope and prayer all along. There are quite a few large buildings, so I read the description to try to figure out how far it was from our present location. Turns out it was not far at all.
To my surprise, it was in our same building! On the ground floor!
I command you: be strong and steadfast! Do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord, your God, is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)
