Home is an Airstream Trailer (kind of)

At our second youth pastorate, Betty and I found ourselves living in a converted Airstream trailer.   Now whoever built this thing made it up as he went along.  The picture you see is a good representation of what our home was.  Just add a room on the other side.  

One side of the trailer was a living room, and the other side was a bedroom/bathroom.  The living room had 8-foot ceilings.  But the bedroom had 10-foot ceilings.  They didn't take the Airstream off of its axles, but for some reason, they put a new floor in the trailer section.  So you were climbing stairs all the time through doorways that were too short for 6' plus people.  If you didn't pay any attention, you would crack the top of your skull on the doorway entering the center of the house.  Painful is putting it mildly.  

It was clean, the plumbing worked and did I mention that we lived near some of those monster high tension powerlines?  That's right every morning I was greeted with the crackling of electricity moving through the air.  Thunderstorms were fun too.  Lighting would hit the high voltage lines, and you could watch the power dance down the line.  

It was home for the next 18 months.  

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Through a series of miracles, God had provided a place and opportunity for Betty and me to work on our marriage.  This engineering nightmare was the will of God, and it was home.  We loved it - we did.  It was here that we could learn how to be married again.  But I am convinced that we would have never changed our lives if we were not in His will.  

Are your relationships in God's will today? 

PRAY  Dear Jesus, before I can change my life I need to be in your will.  Show me your will today.  AMEN.
