Over the past week or so, I have once again been reminded of this verse:

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
   neither are your ways my ways,”
            declares the LORD.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
   so are my ways higher than your ways
   and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55

During the whole preparation to move to Wellington, my prayer has been "LORD, let your will be done".

Then I found myself looking for rental accommodation, and before I knew it the prayer had turned to "LORD, let your will be done and not mine [and I really hope your will is for us to get this house on So-and-so Street that we just put in an application for]". What a rude awakening when our application got denied, and now it's back to knee-time, repentance, and reaffirmation that His will be done, that His ways are higher.

And as a friend cheekily put it, it's now up to those new tenants to sort out the plumbing issues...

This has forced me to check myself. A much needed realisation.
