More on full timing

As promised, I’m sending the next two days devotional material.

When do we leave?

Bible reading: Matt. 4:19-20

We had questions with no answers, problems to be solved. We owned a house on a busy thoroughfare. We had tried unsuccessfully to sell it several times over 20 years. What if we couldn’t sell it now? We owned a bus but what if the conversion work LeRoy was doing to make it livable wasn’t done? I mentioned earlier that my mother’s health was precarious. Even though she was looking forward to our retirement, what if she needed us and we were gone? We were used to a comfortable income that would be greatly reduced when we retired. How would we make ends meet?

God took care of the issues one at a time. We listed our house and less than 60 days later, Mother passed away. The following week, the house sold! And we got busy making the bus ready for occupants. While it wasn’t complete by the time we moved out of the house, it was livable. We were able to pay off all our debt in the next few months and realized our retirement income would meet our needs. Why had we ever doubted?

God’s provision doesn’t depend on what we have but upon His glorious riches, and they have been given to us in Christ Jesus. This is the same God who told Moses and the Israelites when it was time to stay in one place and when it was time to pack up the tabernacle, His earthly dwelling, and move on. And when he called the disciples, they followed immediately. Now He was telling us, IT’S TIME!
