We are moving to Texas!
This is a change for our family that we thought long and hard about and have worked really hard to make come true. At the end of April we took a trip down to Texas to check out the housing availability and we set our sites on a new construction home. We pretty much fell in love right away with the house we picked. Alyssa had gone with us and was on board right away. Yes she has had some fears but for the most part she is just ready to go.
Once we returned back to MN, we started working on our current home so we could get it on the market. Well, its been 33 days and we have had no offers. Its a great starter house and all of the mechanicals are updated. I cant lie, I have been getting a little depressed, very anxious and somewhat overwhelmed with the though of not getting this house sold. We technically have until June 24th to get an offer on our home in order to close just in time for the closing in TX. This is very stressful.
Lets fast forward for a minute to last night…. yesterday I started to really lose hope. I started to really doubt what we as a family were doing with this move. and then I called my old sponsor and friend. She reminded me that none of this is in our hands and that I needed to pray for faithfulness, I needed to turn it over to God again and take a step back. You know, She is right. I forgot that their is a power so much greater than myself who has a plan and that he will take care of this. I guess I shouldn’t have packed my bibles and my readable materials of my daily devotions. I really need to get back into the meditation and the praising of my almighty God, I really need to release some of my stress and let him take over.
So here we are. Our family is going to wait and pray and be kind. We love our friends and family and our amazing support system and we love and trust in God.
What more can we ask for?
