Today I shared how amazing God is to a perfect stranger. Yep, not me, not my style but he asked.
We are in the process of buying a home. For those who have gone through this process it tends to be an emotional roller coaster of sorts, but so far things are just even. My husband and I have gone into this with the understanding that we would not consider a home unless every single family member was happy with the choice. That being said, we also agreed that if things did not work out, it would be completely okay because we know God gives us the desires of our hearts and He may have a different and better plan. Whoopee!!
I was talking with the mortgage guy today. We are doing things a little differently than we had planned. He asked me how things might look for us, and I said "God is so amazing and good and if you don't know Jesus, you will after hearing our story". Okay I said this tongue and cheek. I confess I expected the questions to continue as they do with a mortgage guy. But he surprised me. He said " tell me how that is?"....tell him how what is, is what I am thinking? "He says I would love to hear your story". At no time during my fifteen minutes of giving God complete glory for what he has done in our family did he make any confessions of being a Christian. He just wanted to know more about what it was about our lives that gave credence and credit to God. Whoopee!!!
When I hung up the phone I prayed for this man. I thought if this loan does not produce the numbers my husband and I want it's okay. Today a stranger heard the amazing power of God. The miracles in this last year. He asked me how I define miracles. I told him that in church on Sunday the pastor said it like this..."a miracle is when God steps in and does the impossible" so I adopted that and shared that with him.
A stranger whom I know very little about except the builder of this home referred him. A stranger who is taking all our personal information for evaluation and I got to show him a glimpse of our Savior in a way that was cooler than if I had planned. I just love how God drops someone into our lives to expose Him.
