On Friday Aug 3, when we were still at the R.V. park, Wanda went into the office to clear up an issue with the lot we were staying in. When she came out, she had the most interesting conversation with an old man, who introduced himself as the maintenance person. He asked Wanda if she had been helped, and she said, “yes”. Then he asked Wanda about herself, and why was she camping at the park? Wanda replied graciously that we were selling our house. The man then asked her directly how much we were selling the house for. Wanda was taken aback by his forthrightness, but answered $590,000. He then said that it was too much; that those mortgages were gone in the spring and the most people were getting now was $400,000. He said we needed to bring our asking price down. When she later told me about this conversation, I knew that God was speaking to us through this man. Our price for the house was too high, and we had to make some changes. We agreed to lower the price to $400,000; just like the man said.
I never knew if the man Wanda talked to was a maintenance man or an angel, but I knew God had arranged the circumstances. To us this was another sign from God; leading and guiding us on our journey. God spoke through an ordinary man in an extraordinary way, to help and offer necessary advice. One of the attitudes we have learned and valued, in the wilderness, is humility. A willingness to stay humble and open to the way God speaks to us. It is not the thunderous boom we have been taught to expect. Many times, God will communicate quietly within us; through sudden flowing thoughts or unusual interactions. Just like this one. We need to learn this quality of humility to hear and obey these unexpected leads. In our case, we were careful not to ignore the lead God was giving.
