"For Susan B, I can relate!"
I can so relate to your situation and what you are going through.
I shared here recently about my situation here where I have been asked
to move from my rental home by the landlord and how impossible it
looks. I have pets and my wife and I have very limited funds and income
so every day that Jesus tarries is one more day that we have to live by
faith. I have been hoping that the rapture will be our answer because
if God had a place for us to move to, it certainly seems that he would
have led us to it by now. But he has not even hinted in that direction
but just tells us to not worry but do everyday things. Some friends and
family are amazed that we are doing this but what else can we do? I too
have been hanging on every word posted by Susan and Sabrina but
unfortunately I never know just how to define the word "soon" as used
by our Lord. For me soon means next week or sooner, laugh. But for
Jesus that may mean as far as a whole year from now maybe, I just don't
know. But like you, I don't have the luxury of biding my time if it is
a whole year from now. I will admit that I got very discouraged after
4/21/11 went by and we are still here and Linda my wife said I have to
stop letting this happen to me. When I listen to the Holy Spirit I feel
that we are doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing. Maybe this
is why Jesus said not to take tomorrow's worries on today. Because
today I am fine, it is only when I worry about tomorrow that I get in
Oh, I do hope his definetion of soon is like I hope, real soon!
