Financial challenges overcome with support from the Shepherd

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

Like many people, I know what it's like to be in a difficult economic situation. My challenge came when I needed to sell my house, as I was moving out of state. But the real estate market in my city was spiraling downward in the aftermath of a bust economy. It wasn’t the ideal time to sell, but I didn’t have a choice.

Mine was a wooden-frame house with shutters and a magnolia tree in the front. I loved the whole package—but I also knew that home is so much more than a material structure. The Bible confirms that home is actually a divine idea: “Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.” As God’s children, we each dwell—live in—God.

We'd love to hear from you!
