We made an offer...

It's going to take a miracle, let me just start by prefacing that way. We made a marathon trip yesterday up to Dallas and back in one day. Somewhere in the middle of all that, we made an offer on this...
It's awesome. We love it. There are 3 offers sitting on the table and ours isn't at full asking. You do the math. Look promising? No, but John and I have decided to make a faith decision. This house has been tied up for 3 months under contract and literally just became available. I was picking our lease house when our agent called and told me to hold onto my socks because he was about to blow them off. And, boy did he.

Has God been holding this house for us? I'm not sure. Our offer was placed at our highest point of comfort. We entertained changing it to full asking price until 11:45pm last night. That would have meant countering our own offer. Who does that?! We decided to stay with our original offer and let God do the rest. If this house really is the one he's been holding for us, then he's also fully capable of making the other people's offers less attractive than ours. If it's not the one he has reserved for us, then we'll be sad but totally willing to accept that path.

Our kids are in love with this property. They even wrote letters to the sellers asking them to accept our offer. They are priceless. If we end up moving in, I guarantee you they will be framed and proudly displayed.

I'm at peace and I am calm. I know God's got our backs on this one and we will find out today if that includes this house or not. But, like I said, it will take a miracle!

Hi,

You don't know me and I have never left a comment on your blog but I do visit regularly. I am praying for you, I was in the same boat with 3 kids under the age of 4 and a short timeline to find a home. God found us the perfect house and I was so glad we had "lost" all those other ones (the last one was particularly hard). But the home he had for us was BETTER than all the rest. It's hard to see past this time, but if this is not the one there is a better one! I thank God all the time we didn't get the other home we bid on before we found this one!

As long as your kids are with you they will make any place a loving home, but I know God has a good one for you (praying this is one is it).
