Is at a standstill. This is the last thing I was thinking would happen. We had everything ready to go.
New bedding bought-check!
New living room set picked out-check!
New bedroom set-check!
Planning, imagining, dreaming about our life in that house. I can see us pulling in the driveway with our newborn baby in the back seat. I can see thanksgiving dinner with our whole family-with finally enough room to fit everyone! Our glory house. That's what we've called it since the day we saw it. A house given to us from God. Perfectly made for us.
Long story short-we were turned down for a home loan. We applied at another bank yesterday so now we just have a waiting game. Although I'm not concerned. I was, but I'm not anymore.
The first thing I thought when I heard we weren't approved, "what will everyone on facebook say?" We had already posted a picture of us standing in front of the house with the "SOLD" sign. "Congratulations"!! and "That's awesome!!"'s ensued. 40 likes. Yeah we're popular.
No one has heard the latest news, except my immediate family. We would prefer not to tell anyone because we know God is going to make a way for us!
I'm trying to focus on rejoicing through this because I know that through this trial Loujo and I are doing the right thing!
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
There's a reason we are supposed to be getting this house. This house is going to be a testament to God's miraculous power! God's getting the glory for this house!
So I guess the main reason why I am telling you all this(if anyone is actually reading this) is because I would like you to pray! Please pray that Louis and I have favor with the underwriter who sees our information. Please believe and agree with us that we are getting this house.
Matthew 18:19 Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
God is going to do something BIG. Get ready!
