Do we really need to go this way, Lord?

"I do trust You, Lord, and I want to follow your leading, but couldn't You choose a less rocky path, or at least a more convenient time?"

I wrote in the last post of the miracle God would have to preform to provide us with a house for our land.  I think maybe it must have still been too easy, because He has just allowed another obstacle to block the path.

It already seemed next to impossible to build a house with what we hoped our credit union would be willing to loan us when we were done, and next to impossible to get the supplies with hardly any cash available, but at least we figured we could do a lot of the work ourselves.  Bruce can do plumbing and wiring and carpentry work.

But Bruce was admitted into the hospital yesterday.  There is an infection in his blood stream again.  He may have to have drip antibiotics via a pic line for another six weeks.  It could be very serious business again.  There's not much chance he will be building a house any time soon.

It sort of reminds me of the story of Gideon.  God wanted to make sure the people could not say their own ability had saved them, so He whittled down the army to three hundred and then let them see that He was the one doing it all.

I know God has a plan for our lives, and I know He never takes us along the easiest route, but I also know that it always turns out to be best way to go.

I expect some day to be able to tell you why He has allowed this, but for now, I ask that you just trust with me.
