God Appointments are the Best Appointments

One of our team members' husbands was in a waiting room of a doctor's office and struck up a conversation with another patient. He quickly learned that B had a strong faith in God - She spoke of God and quoted Scripture in every breath. He also learned that she was homeless. She had lost everything in Hurricane Harvey and had been couch surfing in the homes of her grown children ever since. B is the picture of patience as she trusted that God was going to provide a way for her to have her own place again, in His time. She had no idea what a divine appointment that day in the doctor's office would come to be. They traded numbers and more than a year later, when she finally had the keys to her apartment, God used Finishing Touch to bless her far beyond anything she could ask or imagine.

In our first meeting, when asked what she envisioned in her home, B said she would like Scripture art on her walls, pops of color and would love a sectional sofa. Our warehouse was a bit low on both furniture and decor at the time of B's blessing, but that didn't take God by surprise - His timing is perfect. A sectional sofa and dinette set were picked up the morning of her Blessing Day and went straight to her apartment, never even entering our storage. Some of our very talented team members created beautiful custom, scripture art for her walls, including a mirror surrounded with The Blessing verses found in Numbers 6:24-26 and a creative interpretation of B's favorite verse, Jeremiah 33:3, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

During her reveal B said, " I feel God all over this place." Afterwards, she face-timed with her son. Like a kid at Christmas, she carried her phone around her apartment, exclaiming over and over again, "Look what they did for me, Son!" He thanked us, praised God and prayed for us before we left.
