...and not this one either

This post will be short and bittersweet. Eric and I have been searching for a house to start planting our roots here in Milwaukee. Our search began in February, and although we haven't been hitting the pavement every single week, searching high and low, we have done our fair share of looking. Needless to say, we have found some houses, put offers in, get excited, then let down because of something. We know without a shadow of a doubt that God has a house for us, but we are human, and we have real, raw feelings.

We wanted to stop, but we kept going, we found another one, put our offer in and it was accepted. With this particular house the owners and the bank both have to accept the offer. We put the offer in, the owners accepted it, then we waited for the bank to. And we waited and waited some more. Late yesterday afternoon our realtor called and we didn't get it. Now I won't go into the gory details because I don't know all of them, but let's just say the story we are getting from our realtor, the listing realtor, and the bank all are different.

So here I am today, a little sad, a little discouraged, and yet I can't cry over it, trust me, I have tried. I guess we just go on and trust God. I don't guess, I know we go on and trust God. We both are upset we didn't get the house, but we both know God is bigger then any old house, and so are his plans for us.

I guess maybe I am now just really, really curious as to what the plans are for us, a different, better house, a new opportunity, or maybe apartment living for another year. Who knows, well God knows, and I will someday find out. So maybe the hunt continues, and maybe it doesn't it...but God is always faithful.

I know the disappointment, my co-worker is wanting to sell her house, had people, look and look, yet no buyers.

God must have a better house in store for you. Don't be discouraged, all in God's timing, it will happen.
Keep trusting him.

Michi, I'm sorry the house didn't work out. It's hard not to "forward think" and begin to imagine a yard of your very own and space for Molly to run and play. It's okay, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He knows your disappointment and also your future. I'm excited to see what is in store for your family. I love you.

Kate,

I am so sorry your house plans fell through. I know how disappointing that must be. Hey, maybe God is trying to tell you that it's time for you to pack up and move over here to TX with me?! LOL!!! Just kidding! :)

You are right though...God is faithful and He will lead you to where He needs and wants you to be. I will keep you in my prayers!

Sorry about the house! God will definitely give you exactly what you need at exactly the right time. He's good at working things out like that. ;) But I don't have to tell you that, do I?
