We continue to wait to see what God is going to do with our current home that we have on the market and the one that we want to buy that we love. I found out a few weeks ago that the home we are hoping to get, that is in pre-foreclosure, has once again had the hearing and auction rescheduled. This is the third time! The foreclosure hearing was supposed to happen mid-July and the auction was scheduled for August 3. The day before the hearing was supposed to happen, I called the trustees to confirm that the date had not changed. Oh, but it had. The hearing is now scheduled for October and the auction for November!
That seems so far away. But…our house hasn’t sold yet, so really, that is good news for us!
We still don’t know if it is God’s will for our current house to sell, we believe it is and are waiting to see what He is going to do. And we don’t know, if our house sells, if the one we very much want is to be ours. We are praying, and we are waiting. And waiting some more. And that is okay. It is actually a blessing. Because it is strengthening our faith and helping us to rely on Him. What a wonderful, (and yes, often uncomfortable!) placed to be!
There is a song I have come to love that I have begun singing quite frequently through this whole process. For those of you that are Fireproof fans (AMAZING movie), you will recognize it. It serves as a reminder for me and applies in a variety of situations. And as I was just thinking about our hopes and plans for the future and my desire for our house to sell, this song just played on Pandora. As always, I’m thankful to the Lord for the reminder.

So, what happened? Did you get the home that was in pre-foreclosure or not?
Hi Jen- we didn’t, and I ended up being super relieved. I know (now) that as wonderful as that house would have been, it just wasn’t the right timing. I wrote a bit about that in September in a post, but never did say it that definitively. I probably should write about that soon!
