This is our house

its for sale.

Selling our house is the last thing that needs to happen before everything is ready for us to move.
We are 100% positive we are to do this life shift, but the lack of interest in our place is wearing on our faith, not to mention that our real-estate agent is already suggesting we lower our price for a quicker sale.

A potentially draining process for sure.
And yet I don't find it that at all
Rather, I feel inspired, challenged, stretched into this new kind of Faith I have never known before.

And it feels awesome

Yet this ground I have chosen to tread wrecks havoc in some peoples hearts and minds, for it goes against all human logic, all rational thinking, all common sense.

Logic says lower the price
Rational thinking says there is no way we will be moving mid may
Common sense says stop thinking it's going to work out that way


Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see

So we continue to have Faith, even tho the odds seem so stacked against us, and we wait.
And I know our house will sell, and I eagerly wait to our new life to begin.

  1. oh, girl. we just tread this path last spring -- and are still treading, to some degree. God will show up - sale or no sale, i know that for sure. Peace to you, in the process... :)

  2. It's as cute as a button. I love it. I pray someone (not broke and in California) falls in love with it.

  3. i kinda think god likes it when the odds are stacked against him you know...hope the house sells if that is what is meant..

  4. need huge faith for every move.

  5. I pray all your steps are ordered by the Lord as you follow His leading. Grace and Peace to you.

  6. Thank you for the reminder of what faith is. We are in the process of trying to sell our home. Yours looks adorable. I will lift you up in prayer.

  7. you are one of my favorite people. i praise God for bringing you into my life. my faith has been bolstered by yours, sister. and he who has begun a good work in you will see it through to completion... we serve a God who owns cattle on a thousand hills. i stand, believing with you. love always, e.

  8. Agreeing with Brian.. when God does what seems to logic to be impossible, all the glory is His†

    I see snow in your picture.. and we still have lots on the ground here in mid-Manitoba too.

  9. I like your house! I will pray that it sells and soon. You're still in my prayers, although I do forget sometimes. *sigh* I want my brain back! Let me know when you're in town so we can do tea. :)

  10. Faith is always a stretch, isn't it? I want to be stretched more and more. It's a beautiful pull.

    Great post.

  11. Ohh beautiful house, liked it.
    Peace to you, in the process. Good luck!
    All the best
