A True Story from My
Book “Rescue the Stories Book Three”
Do Things “Just Happen”- - Or
Is It God?
Usually when a couple are
house-hunting in order to purchase a home, they both go together to make that
decision.In this instance, that was not
the case.The decision was being left up
to me!Soon I was on a plane flying to Tulsa, Oklahoma,
to purchase a home for our year’s stay.
Our plans were to arrive in
the beginning of summer 1976 and get settled in.Since the BibleTrainingCenter
was holding their second year of classes at Sheridan Assembly in Tulsa, I decided to go
there first and audit a class. Seating
myself with the students, I sat back and tried to blend in.
The gentleman sitting next to
me realized that I was not a student so he asked me, “Why are you here?”
I told him, “My husband and I
will be students in the next school term, and that I was there to purchase a
house for our family.”
Enthusiastically he flipped
through his wallet and drew out a business card.“Here,” he said, “My father-in-law is a Real
Estate Agent and he can help you.”
Did I just “Happen,” to sit next that particular student?
Arriving at my motel, I
called the number on the card, and was pleasantly surprised when the man I was
supposed to call answered the telephone.He just “Happened” to have floor duty
that day!I gave him all the information
as to what I needed:a four bedroom
house, a certain price range, a large yard for our two big dogs.
He asked if I would be free
the next day to view homes, and I grabbed the opportunity. In the meantime, he
would put together a list of homes available, and we would start early the next
True to his word, he took me
to view many homes in the Tulsa
area but none were ringing a bell.Finally, the agent asked me if I would be willing to go further out
towards Broken Arrow,
as there were some fairly new homes there with large yards.I told him, that we were used to driving 20
miles and that would NOT be a problem.
Three homes in that area were
shown to me.Suddenly, as we looked
through the last home, I heard in my spirit, “This is the one.”
I called my husband and
shared the particulars. He told me what
to offer and not to go over a certain price.Everything clicked.I told the
sellers, when we needed Escrow to close, signed papers, left a deposit, and
flew back to California.With not so much ado, we had a
home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma!
Two months later we arrived
with our menagerie and family.We met
the agent, made all the closing settlements, and headed out to our new
home.The sellers were doing their final
sweep and told us they would be out in 20 minutes or so.Shortly we were able to set up our beds,
bring in our things and settle in for the night.
What occurred the following
day was amazing.We decided to drive
into Tulsa to
the ministry headquarters and spy out the land.Guess what? We were told that the School for the next session would be
moving to a new location just purchased in Broken Arrow, located 4 miles from our new
Now, do you believe that “Just happened?”… Or was it God?
You too can expect God to
direct your path in all of life’s decisions.Learn to seek His face, and then trust your inward spirit as The Lord guides you in
the way you should go.
Psalm 37:23The steps of a good man (or woman) are ordered by the Lord:
