Would You Do This?
We all know Becca Viola as our wonderful and talented Worship Director and that during the day she is a professional piano and vocal teacher. But, did you know just “how much” she trusts the Lord? What she did will knock your socks off!
She was renting a house which had ample room for her baby grand piano and teaching lessons. That was a big plus as not all houses can accommodate those needs. It had something else too. Worms! Yes, every time it rained, worms would make their way under the sliding door and into the house. The landlord had consistently been unhelpful. There was only one option left – Move.
After many months of searching, nothing was working out. The rain kept coming and the worms kept coming. Finally, Becca had enough. You won’t believe what she did next! She gave notice to the landlord! Oh, she didn’t know where she’d go, but she wasn’t going to stay there any longer.
Now think about this. She has a house full of furniture and the clock is now ticking. A few weeks passed. Wouldn’t you think she’d be at her wit’s end? Not Becca. She simply told the Lord that it was up to Him. She’d given up, and she was trusting Him to take care of her problem.
Now she’s coming into the last week. No word yet from the Lord. Remember how we’ve talked about God’s not in a hurry but He’s never late? So, three days before time’s up, He found her the “perfect” house, and just right for her piano. Oh, and the frosting on the cake is it’s just a couple of minutes from the church!
But I trust in Your unfailing love. I will rejoice because You have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because He is good to me. Psalms 13:5-6 NLT (from Becca)
