Exactly one month ago, God worked a miracle like I have never seen before. I am still in awe of how He moved and worked in an impossible situation.
You see, you remember when we first moved into our dream home, right? God provided a home in the country for us complete with land a pond and a place to call our own– or so we thought.
6 months down the road, the landlord that we were going to be buying the house from decided that he no longer wanted to sell it to us. In fact, he wanted to take possession of the house back as soon as he could–as early as the end of May. We didn’t panic. We just trusted that if God provided that home for us, then He again would provide us with another home that would be even better than the first, because that is just how God works 🙂
Exactly a month and a half ago, God showed up and showed out. How he worked everything out just blew me and my husband away! It started with a phone call from our landlord who told us that he would buy out the rest of our lease and give us our security deposit back if we could find somewhere to move that week. Seriously? Move in a week? That was ridiculously impossible. However, I have learned that with God what seems impossible to man is ALWAYS possible when He is involved.
I told our landlord that we would see and I hung up. That evening, I felt God nudging me to check out VCI classifieds. I had just looked that morning and there was nothing on there. Stephen was on a phone with a friend asking if he knew of any places that were available for us to rent. As I glanced on VCI, a house had just been posted about an hour before that– in the exact location that we wanted to move into to begin with when we moved the first time.
The house was a gorgeous 3 bedroom 2 bath house in our price range. I called and sure enough the house was available for us to look at that evening. They allowed a pet with deposit, so Stephen and I made a dash over to check out the house. That was on a Friday. We filled out the application and prayed.
It is funny and I cannot explain it, but when I walked in to check it out, I felt God whisper to my heart “Welcome Home Child”. The hair on my neck stood up and at that moment I claimed the house as ours. I just knew in my spirit it was meant to be. We had to wait until late Monday evening to find out though. The waiting was torturous, but the realtor called and said we could rent it!!! 🙂
The funny thing is this– the exact amount that our old landlord paid us for our lease and deposit, is exactly what we needed for the move. God orchestrated this move so flawlessly. We started packing on Tuesday and by the NEXT Friday, we were in our new home.
If you ever wonder whether God cares about your wants and desires, a story like this will make you know for sure 🙂
- He blessed us with a garden.
- He blessed us with a beautiful kitchen
- He blessed us with being right behind the grocery store
- He even blessed us to be able to watch fireworks this year right from our deck
We are praying about buying the house at the end of our year’s lease. This is home to us and we love it.
Don’t ever doubt that God can’t work miracles!!!! Our home is proof that the impossible is definitely possible.
