We have been house hunting for two years and have not found anything in our price range that we have even wanted to put a bid on. We found one, but after talking with a previous owner who advised us to runaway, runaway we did. It is such a daunting task and we feel like we’ll never find our house we will call our home. Honestly I’m ready to throw in the towel with all of it and seriously take up our idea of moving into an RV. In some ways life would be simpler, a lot simpler, and other ways it gets bit more complicated. But, I think right now I would take the more simplified. We are continuing to pray, watch, and keep looking. It has also occurred to us that perhaps we haven’t found a house to buy because we aren’t suppose to stay in Albert Lea. But, it doesn’t seem like God is moving us in that direction either. We do know we need to be out of this current house by July 31st, but we don’t know to where we are moving.
We have finally called in a Realtor we really like worked with in the past and she was wonderful about helping us walk through the process and helping us know what to look for and be aware of as we walked through each house. Plus, she has info on rentals if we end up not finding something we like and our time has run out in this house. I have to remind myself to breathe, trust, breathe and to keep walking in faith. It will be God’s great surprise present to all of us.
We watch and wait with great expectation. It has occurred to us that we have not asked God where he wants us as far as job, state, and what house or rental he wants us in. We have begun to pray like crazy asking the Lord, where do you want us, where do you want us to go? Stay or go, we are open, we’d just like to know which one. 🙂
So house hunting has left me wondering if finding the right house is like finding the right wedding dress, once you see it, try it on, you just know it’s the one you love, the one that fits you like a glove, the one you feel like a princess in. When we find out house, I’ll let you know if the wedding dress feeling came with it.
