For years we lived in parsonages or rental homes and for many of those years I asked God for a home of our own. Seventeen years ago, God miraculously answered my prayer. Out of the blue our landlord, a builder, told us that he felt that he was supposed to build us a house. While our miracle home was being built, we put scripture verses inside the walls, and for all of the years that we lived there we saw God's promises and purposes come to pass in our lives in the good times and in the times of trial.
This summer we sold that home. On the last day in our house, my husband and I both cried as we remembered God's blessings and all of the memories we had made there. We stopped and thanked God for His faithfulness to us through the years. We then moved into a new to us house closer to our church. In the process of doing some updating to the house, we ripped up the old flooring to install new hardwood floors. It was the perfect opportunity to write some of God's promises in our new home, right there on the subfloor.
