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
to purchase a home for our year’s stay. Tulsa, Oklahoma
Our plans were to arrive in the beginning of summer 1976 and get settled in. Since the
was holding their second year of classes at Sheridan Assembly in , I decided to go
there first and audit a class. Seating
myself with the students, I sat back and tried to blend in. Tulsa
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 morning.
True to his word, he took me to view many homes in the
area but none were ringing a bell.
Finally, the agent asked me if I would be willing to go further out
towards Tulsa ,
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. Broken Arrow
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
. With not so much ado, we had a
home in California ! Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
Two months later we arrived in
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. Oklahoma
What occurred the following day was amazing. We decided to drive into
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 Tulsa , located 4 miles from our new
home! Broken Arrow
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.
