Letting God lead
I was a young soldier being reassigned at the time, and my wife and I had just been married. We arrived on the California coast and had just a few days to find our first "home" off base. We had worked with a real estate agent an entire afternoon, and nothing we could afford to rent seemed to satisfy us. But I reminded my wife of a verse in the Bible that says, "Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared" (Ex. 23:20).
After supper we went for a drive along the ocean, and just a block away, we happened to see a small cottage, shielded by a sand dune, with a small, handmade "For Rent" sign in the window. I immediately called the number and arranged to see the house the next day. It was affordable, and the sign had just been posted.
