I have something to share with you all that I have been wanting to share with you all for so long! I wanted to wait until all of the “I’s” were dotted and the “T’s” were crossed to tell you my news.A few weeks ago I put an offer in on a condo that I had been looking at. I had been looking at it for so long and got so excited about the thought of living there. I already had my room designed and laid out and a Wayfair wish list started. The day I put in an offer on the condo I found a penny in a parking lot, heads up. I knew it was God showing me that he was about to give me everything I had been praying for.
Not even an hour after putting in an offer, I had lost the condo. I wouldn’t be getting my cute room and cozy condo. I was crushed. I threw that penny into a cup holder in my car and forgot all about it. I felt like God had just teased me with a condo and then took it away from me in two seconds.
My sister, who is also my Realtor, said she would send out a letter to all of the other condo owners to let them know. About a week after those letters went out, we had a response. My sister talked to her and set up a time for me to see the condo and it was even better than the previous condo. It was so much more cute than the first condo and I am so excited to move in. I want to be in now, but I don’t close for about one month.
This whole process has been such a learning experience in so many ways. Not only in the home buying process itself but I have learned a lot about myself. I have learned I need to trust in God fully, all of the time. I doubted Him. I didn’t trust in His plan. Through this adventure God has me on, I have learned to remember to trust Him in all He does and after everything, it was a lucky penny after all.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding – Proverbs 3:5
He is faithful in all he does – Psalm 33:4
