Shattered Dreams

Well, it happened.  The thing we have been fearing for the past month (or a little longer).  The thing that I didn't want to speak about, but my husband couldn't stop talking about. The house we wanted, the house we put our home on the market for, the house we have been dreaming of, was sold out from underneath us.
 
But, even though my dreams of living in that house, with the adorable kitchen, and huge rooms have been shattered (and my heart is a little shattered too) I know that everything happens for a reason.
 
God's word says there is a season for everything under the sun.  God's word says that He knows the desires of our hearts--and He will give them to us.  God's word says that all things work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.  I am choosing to put aside my hurt feelings. I am choosing to let go of the house that I became attached to, even though I said I wouldn't.  And I am choosing to walk in the promises of God. 
 
I know that He knows what is best for us.  I know that He is taking care of us.  I know that He has a plan for our lives.  And I am trusting in Him.

I know the pain of loosing something you're hoping for. Hoping quietly, just in case it doesn't happen.
I'm sorry that this one wasn't yours... makes you think how great, and lovely "the one" that God does have for you is going to be.
