A big purchase!

As I am typing this I still can't believe we did it...
Brent and I bought our 1st home!

We are beyond excited, nervous, and scared about this big decision. 
BUT It all worked out perfectly in Gods timing and is his planning.

We went a few weeks ago to look at a home that was on the market. After looking through it, it just wasn't the right place... inside the kitchen was small, no pantry (moms you know that is a huge selling point) and outside it was super close to a busy road with very little yard. 
When we decided it was a no, Our Realtor drove us to a neighborhood right down the street. 
All the homes were sold but she took us in one to see the layout so we could talk to the builder about building us one. 

We walked in the home and fell in love.
It was perfect.
Everything I had pictured for our 1st home and more! I remember looking at Brent saying "this is a bad idea. This home was custom built for someone and I know out of our price range."

After discussing prices we decided to meet with the builder. Both Brent and I were so nervous. You never realize what a huge decision you are making until it is right in front of you. 
When meeting with the builder he discussed our options and then at the end he mentioned that the home we went into may be back on the market. The buyers offer was falling through and asked if we would be interested instead of building one and they would let us know in a few days.

Those next couple of days we prayed and asked God to show us where he wanted us to be. Brent laughs because I prayed for that house. I asked God to open it if we are suppose to be in this neighborhood, if this was the right time to be buying and if we were ready.

Last Thursday we got the call.... we had ONE day to put a offer on this home if we wanted it before they were going to put in back on the market. We scrambled and got everything together, met our realtor at the house and signed our life away.
We close on June 18th!

I look back and think about how fast we made that decision but God was evident every step of the way. He opened the doors over and over again making us fill at ease with everything.
He has showed us sign after sign that this is where we are suppose to be.

God is so faithful. I was praying about a little thing that was not a need but more of a want and God showed me he does fulfill those desires at HIS timing. I am so thankful we serve such a giving and loving God that answers prays with in days.. not always the way we want him to but in his perfect timing and love. He knows the best for us.
This experience has taught me to sit back and let God be in control... and let me tell you that is not easy for me. I like to have everything planned out, know right away what I will be doing ... I like to be in CONTROL! .... but I have learned fast that's not how it works. I have learned that being humble and sitting back and giving it into Gods hands the outcome has been better then I could even imagine!

We are so excited!!
Have a great weekend!

But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD Joshua 24:15
