House Update

The bank has received our offer and now we are are {patiently}waiting (for up to 35 days) for a response from the bank- either approval or a counter offer. 

Everyone seems to think patience is the issue. Heck, in March we'll have been looking for a whole year, so what's another month, right?  I don't care how long it takes. To be honest, the biggest struggle we are both having is faith.  I keep allowing myself to think "We're not going to get it...."

Jon prayed fervently and faithfully that we would both just KNOW when it was THE house.  And we did. We do. And now we have to trust God to give it to us.  Why is that so hard?? 

So, we are hust going to remain faithful and continue praying, all the while remembering God's promises...

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." -Matthew 7:7

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." -Philippians 4:6

"Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart." -Psalm 37:4
