We have been looking for a bigger house for several years. We were just not finding anything within our budget. Then, in September of last year God increased our monthly budget. Enough were we could seriously begin looking for a larger house, but we were still a little hesitant. God had to give us a CLEAR signal that we needed to put our house on the market and start looking for a house.
On Christmas Day, later in the evening, the doorbell rang. When I opened the door there was a beautifully wrapped present on our porch. When I opened the box inside I found $1,500 in CASH!!! The card said “please use this gift to help in the purchase of your new home whenever God makes it available to you”. PS. “We pray that God will find a way for this gift to be multiplied for you and the He will be glorified!!”
That was all we needed! After the holidays we began looking for a house. Still we just did not find anything that would meet the needs of our children. We decided we should build a house so that we could accommodate ALL the needs of our children. This house is not for us but for our kids!
You are NOT going to believe what happened!!!!
Our house was on the market for two weeks when we got an offer on the house. We closed on it TODAY!!! AND guess what else?? we are still living in it!!! When the guy came to look at our house he had already started working on financing to build a house but his realtor talked him into looking at our house. He loved it. One of the reasons he loved it was because he could not move in until June so he was excited that we wanted to rent it from him until then. WOOHOO!!
Guess what we sold it for?? The EXACT number we had prayed for!!!!!
