The Desk

I have been looking for a desk since Christmas, when I got the money I had asked for to buy one. I actually found one almost immediately. It was beautiful – just the style I wanted, just the right size, plenty of storage without being bulky, a bunch of great features that others didn’t have… Yes, this desk would be great for me.

But it was out of my price range, first of all. And it wasn’t even made of real wood (particle board or something). It wouldn’t be nearly as sturdy as a solid wood one. So my dad said I should keep looking. I tried on Craigslist because the desks people would be selling on there would probably be solid wood, because they were older. I looked. My mom looked. My dad looked. We all looked for a desk in the area pretty much every day. I was beginning to think I’d have to settle for something that wasn’t really the style I wanted, or didn’t have enough storage, because there really wasn’t much out there. But then one day, I stumbled upon the perfect desk! Ok, not perfect, it was the wrong color, but all the things I wanted it had. It has the leg style I wanted: straight, not turned; it had the cutest little hutch and a fairly good sized drawer; best of all, it was solid wood and very well made. My dad said we could definitely repaint the painted part white, and stain the wood part to match the rest of my furniture.

We obviously were able to get it, and at a much better price as well, under my budget 👍😉

I love this desk! I’m so glad I waited for the right one to come around. As I learned, it’s really important to be patient. If God means for something to happen, it will happen, no matter how big or small the matter is.

Miss Potter, my kitty, obviously appreciates the new desk as well 🐱

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. -Lamentations 3:25, KJV

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. -James 1:3, KJV

  2. God has a beautiful way of providing for us and often giving us the desires of our heart, especially when our hearts align with His.

  3. This sounds like me looking for a new phone. I prayed to God that He guides me as I buy it. Make sure you dedicate your desk to God by praying for it; it’s a principle that a friend taught me when he bought his phone; he prayed for it and two years later it is still in good conditions

    She certainly does approve!

    Thrift stores are good (the ones that sell furniture) and spring/summer garage sales are helpful too if you ever look for anything else. It’s hard to keep looking after getting your hopes up, but way to go on being patient!
