Giving All the Glory To God!

We have a contract.

After two weeks on the market, and six showings, we got an offer this afternoon and by dinner time it was a done deal. The only thing hanging out there is the inspection. No contingency, no loan to sweat. Just the inspection.

Tonight we're not thinking about the fact that we'll be sleeping somewhere else one month from today, just about how awesome God was in this. We prayed it would sell by the end of May, to someone who did not need to sell their house and would be easily approved for a loan.

Incredible. Incredible. Incredible.

Tomorrow or the next day we'll think about boxes and the logistics of finding a place to rent, moving our stuff to two different places, and the fact that we'll be moving a week after our daughter and her family do so, but just for tonight we're thinking ....

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 3:20

"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Phil. 4:19 & 20

The little girl buried deep inside me is thinking, "who's your Daddy? who's your Daddy?"

Thank you, God.

We TOLD you your house was awesome and would sell quickly! Congratulations and we'll hope for a smooth closing.

Barb said...

"who's your Daddy?"

I love that.

Two weeks. Amazing. But seriously, I'm not surprised. Look at that beautiful house.

I'll bet the buyers are as excited as you two are!

Wonderful, wonderful. xoxoxo

Woo hoo! Glory to GOD! Like Barb, I'm not at all surprised because you'd done all your homework, quite literally, and we've all been bathing it in prayer. Thankful, grateful and blessed, but not surprised. :o)

Soooooo happy and pleased for y'all, dear Bev.

Only God. =)

I'll keep praying you through the next month, too!

Kelly said...

Praise God! I have been praying for you, and I'm loving another opportunity to praise God for His perfect timing:-)


Sarah said...

Would you like to borrow Caiden's little yellow shirt that says that? Just kidding :)

I found pictures of your house from back when Caiden was a baby, and it made me a little sad--EXCEPT that your new house is a two hour drive, not a two day drive! Yay!! Now I think I'm getting a little bit excited, and Chris may agree that you might actually go through with it all!! ;)

Becky said...

POOP on the housing market! Who needs statistics when God is in CONTROL!!!


Phew! Ok, got that outta my system. Yay! Really. I have been seriously praying for a quick sell. And no loan to worry about.

PRAISE GOD!!! (there I go again)

Gretchen said...

Who's your daddy, indeed!
I am so thrilled, thrilled, thrilled for you today. Next week, I'll be on hand to commiserate about all the moving.:) But for today, we celebrate!

Soli Deo Gloria! xxxooogretchen

Jill said...

Isn't God Amazing.
Now you should write a book on stagging a home for quick sale.
Just be sure to include the chapter on a house bathed in prayer.
