Focus on the goal

Recently a friend told me she was preparing to move to a new city. She had found a beautiful apartment there, and was making arrangements to sell her condominium and car and to find new homes for many cherished items she had accumulated over the years.

Things fell into place with amazing ease and speed. Her condo was listed for only a short time before it sold, and family members and friends helped her clear out items she could not take with her. Within a few weeks a moving date was in place. She worked at the move every day with joy and confidence—confidence that God was in control of the entire process and guiding all her decisions.

Then, unexpectedly, she was informed by the prospective landlords that on further review, her application for the new apartment had been rejected—her income failed to meet their financial requirements. Since she had not yet signed a lease, they needed to put the apartment back on the market.
