When in doubt.... just don't.

Thursday December 30th, 2010.  Yet another day to add to the faith portfolio.

Through a series of incredible events only God could string together, we found ourselves quickly packing up our Tuscaloosa Alabama life and moving to Nashville Tennessee.  After a lot of prayer, Eric and I felt it was in our family's best interest to go ahead and find a place to rent in Nashville, despite not having our house sold.  This caused a lot of anxiety for me, for obvious financial reasons.  We knew the real-estate market was bad.  We knew not only was the market bad, but we were putting our house up for sale at probably the worst possible time you could put a house up for sale (the Christmas Season).  All of these negatives left us wondering how long we would have to pay our mortgage and rent at the same time.  Despite all the overwhelming odds, God showed up like he always does and proved to be faithful yet again.  We had the perfect offer on December 18th with the buyer wanting to close on the house by December 30th.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  All of the things that needed to be in place for this quick sale were, and we were able to close 1 day before the end of December.  God shows up in all kinds of ways in our life, sometimes meeting the exact prayer we prayed and sometimes answering it in a different way.  We are incredibly humbled by the grace he has given us in this process and I don't ever want to forget this day, December 30th, 2010.  Yet another day to add to my faith portfolio, always reminding me of how He is the giver of life, our sustainer, and our provider.
