Wow! God is good. We have a new house!
The reason for this post isn’t to say look at us but look at God and His provision. As I previously shared, G and I prayed when we decided to put our current house on the market that we would only move if God moved us. Anytime there is a major decision to be made my prayer is that God would only open doors that are meant to be open and close doors that are not meant to be. In the case of finding our new home, He has done that and more than we could ever imagine. I am humbled to serve a God that blesses above your wildest imagination.
Since our offer on the new house was just accepted this week, we will close on our current house two- three weeks before we can close on the new house. The reason for this is because real estate is booming in Rutherford County. Appraisers and loan offices are averaging around ten days behind. Although this was not to our advantage, I am so thankful that we live in an area that did not feel the effects of the recession in comparison to others. Therefore, we are almost back to a pre-recession recession real estate market. You know I am proud of where I live. Just this week, Rutherford County was nationally ranked number two for job growth. Anyways…. With the closing dates being a few weeks apart, we thought we would be homeless (aka living in a hotel and with family members). Thankfully, God had another and far greater plan. We received a call from our realtor on Thursday saying the current owner of the house we are buying would like to rent the home to us until we are able to close. He also is renting it to us for half of what our mortgage payment will be. We were amazed and so grateful. We had planned to store our stuff in a portable storage until we were able to close while we were living at the hotel. Now, this will not be needed. We get to move into our new home in 13 days. We are ecstatic. We are also amazed by God’s provision and blessing. I am so thankful for all the prayers that have been said on our behalf and for the people who have rejoiced with us. ALL THE GLORY GOES TO HIM!
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. – Ephesians 3:30 (NLT)
I can fit everything into a pattern for good but only to extent that you trust me. – Jesus Calling
Now I am off to pack….
