This Picture Sums it Up for Me


Here is the latest on the house/move situation. Over this last week Skip and I both have had the strongest uneasiness about the house we have put under contract. It is a cute house, a good school district for Ashley, and an okay street and neighborhood. However, both of us feel a pit in our stomachs whenever we would talk about it. If it was just me I might figure it was indigestion or something, but both of us feel that having two homes right now is just not smart moneywise for our current situation. We also found out that we would have to live in it for one year by law with the kind of loan we are doing. We can't commit to that because we are supposed to move back into our other home in January. Ugghhh!

Needless to say, I have spent most of the day in prayer and searching scripture for direction on what God would have us do. My options could be renting an apartment for 9 months, renting a home(if someone would be willing to lease for only 9 months), finding a townhouse, or running away to a cabin in Colorado(just kidding-kind of). At this point there are so many possibilities, my head hurts. This is where I wish I was 15 years old and my dad would say, "Honey, you need to......" and I would do it. In the midst of all of this, I still need to consider options for Ashley and high school. I don't know why but I felt God all weekend remind me of a Christian high school I hadn't thought about previously. I even dreamed about it Saturday night. I have no idea if it is something we could afford, but maybe if we choose a less expensive housing option, it may be possible. Sorry if I am boring you guys, but this is what I am focusing on right now. I love that God may be preventing us from making the wrong moves, therefore I am going to trust that this path will become clearer in the next few days. We would really like to move somewhere within the first week of May. Please keep us in your prayers!

Susie, I'll continue praying for you and your family as you make this move and seek God's will through it all. It definitely is not always easy... but God is ALWAYS at your side gently guiding you in the right direction. I pray God you will see God's will and have a peace about where He leads.

Housing crisis are some of the most stressful. I remmember my own owes a few months ago so well.... I prayed for you regarding renting your first house and now will again pray about this move. You'll look back at this time and laugh and laugh at how well God worked it all out and what a great plan he had all along that we just cant see right now....

I'm so glad God is stopping you all if that's his will, and I'll be praying that he will reveal the rest of the plan to you QUICKLY!

This is a big deal. I can surely understand why you're feeling stressed and confused. Know that in the next few moments, I'm lifting prayers on your behalf.
Blessings,
Tracy

Sometimes I wish that there weren't any options. It's the options that kill the brain cells, because there are just so many of them!
