Ask my wife. She’ll tell you I have issues with “control”.
I like to be in control of my job, my surroundings, and my life. I don’t trust other well to be in control of those things. “Trust me” gets my back up.
So… I think God’s really trying to teach me something here with this house sale. I’m NOT in control. I don’t understand why it’s taking so long to sell. I don’t know why others have sold their homes in short periods of time, with multiple offers, and above asking price, but ours is still for sale.
We’ve had 4 weekends of Open Houses — 250+ people over 28 hours — numerous private showings, lots of good comments, priced below market value, and yet the house hasn’t sold.
I’ve said numerous times, “It’s in God’s hands” and “We’ll just have to trust that He’s in control”. But do I really think that? I hope so. I hope my heart is operating and moving in the same direction as my head. I hope I truly believe it and truly trust that He’s in control.
I’m NOT in control. HE’s in control. He’s got the buyer and timing in control. And I will, and have put my trust in Him alone.
Thank you Lord!!
