The Hand of God...


Tonight we are celebrating the sale of our house. We had planned to rent it out because the housing market is so terrible right now, though we knew this would likely bring challenges (mainly the tightening of our belts). Despite this, we were at peace with our decision. God had other plans, though! One of our neighbors has a mother who wanted to move into the same development as her daughter and her daughter's family. She liked the model house that we owned and contacted our rental realtor to ask if we would accept an offer to buy. We took her offer, signed the contract, and handed her the keys today. It is not difficult to see the hand of God in the events of the past few months! I don't think that we could have orchestrated things more perfectly if we had done it ourselves.

Glory to God for All Things!

Praise Jesus!! We are renting out our condo at the moment (we didn't even try to sell), so I can understand what an absolutely blessed relief this must be for your family!! Congratulations!!

I still can't believe, and I'm still so thrilled for all of you! Onward and upward, as my mom says!

Mat Emily,
I have been following your blog for a couple of years but haven't commented. Thank you for your testimony. As my husband and I are considering moving our family to go to seminary, one of the biggest fears I have had is that we wouldn't be able to sell our house. To be reminded that God works everything to His will, even when it seems impossible, was a blessing this morning. Thank you!
