JP and I are going to look at our first apartment today. We can't afford much of anything with the jobs we have right now, but we are hoping that something will work. People keep saying, "God is going to do something. You'll find a job. He has something for you."
My question is, "What if this is what he has for us?
Am I ok with that?
To start a new life together, on our own, as a new family, I feel we need to take this step and find an apartment, but we can't seem to find one in our price range. Why was I birthed in the expensive Chicagoland area? My friend told me last night she found a brand new apartment by her, in Nebraska. 3 bedrooms- $350. That would be nice! I have to believe that God will provide the right apartment at what our budget can afford. But that's just it....I keep telling myself, I HAVE TO believe. I need to make it an "I do believe." As I was reading my devotions last night I came across this sentence:
Home is where God's will is.
It's getting hard because some of our closest loved ones doubt our decision to even get married at this time. Am I looking for an apartment just to prove them wrong? How do thousands of people make it everyday on limited incomes?
