So the day I wrote the journal below...I received a text message from a couple of gals looking for a roommate...for only $290 a month (which is within my rent budget). I meet them TODAY to make arrangements and get to know them...but it looks like I found a place to live until May...and they told me they would LOVE to have me! Best part yet...they are Christians!!! So I don't have to live with strangers who do not share my faith xD So after a month and a half of waiting on God and trusting in Him to provide the perfect place...it seems that the search and waiting is FINALLY over. During that time, God proved to me that He will provide for my every need...down to the very last detail, and on top of that, bless me financially. I woke up the other morning to find $1000 sitting in my back account to pay off backed up bills and put money aside AND have enough money for food! Thank you JESUS.
So in my last update I told you all that I have a place to live and a job and blah blah blah.
Well, I need some MASSIVE prayer from you guys. Please. I still have a job, and I'm still making money. But, the people I was staying with decided to kick me out a few days before Christmas time. The reasons they gave me were vague...the major one being "We don't trust you here alone with all our stuff." I was supposed to be out by the 31st of December...I was kicked out waaaaay before that time. They gave me one day's notice...so I had no warning. I came home from work...and one of the gals came into my room an hour later and said, 'You need to be out by Sunday and I'm giving you till Tuesday to find a place for your stuff'. It was Friday evening when she told me.
So...from then on, I've been roommate hunting, apartment hunting, and staying with my coworkers who have graciously put up with me for far too long.
So far, nothing has come through. Most things are out of my current price range. I put an ad on Craigslist with very SPECIFIC details mind you, and all I have received is emails from men wanting sex/someone to 'play' with -_-. I am VERY discouraged but I'm pressing onward because I KNOW God has me here for a reason, and He TOLD me to trust Him. But I can't do this alone. I've thought about giving up and leaving and going back home to Washington. My family is begging me to come home...but it doesn't feel right.
Please, pray for me. Pray that God will provide the open door for a place to live, and it will be exactly what I need.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement...you all are a blessing!
