Who Does That?

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Someone knocked on our front door tonight and told us they might be interested in buying our house.

Really? Who does that?

Well, who does that besides my husband? He knocked on a door when we were looking for houses in Piedmont a while ago. But, I don't think normal people do that.

Brian invited the guy in and showed him around. Then, his wife came in and they got the grand tour.

Please note that our house is a mess. We have been home from our latest travels for over a week now, and we still have two suitcases in our bedroom full of clothes. Oh well.

It turns out that this couple had looked at our house when it was on the market 3 1/2 years ago when we bought it. They loved it, but couldn't afford it at the time. They have friends in the neighborhood and would love to live here. As an added bonus, they think we have the prettiest house in the neighborhood.

The random guy at the door came almost in the same moment in which I was asking the Lord for mega signs that couldn't be ignored. And then someone randomly knocks on our door asking if we'd be interested in selling it. Really?

It's almost humorous. It's one of the things I love about the extremely relational God we serve. He knows us and knows what we need. It really made me want to throw my head up towards heaven and say, "Seriously?"

It's a rather interesting twist in our plans for the future. I asked for things I couldn't deny. I wanted and want His hand all over any decision we make to move anywhere. And yes, I'm being extremely stubborn right now and basically asking Him to lay it all out. If that's what you want....make it happen. I will go in faith, but I need to know that it's the Lord calling.

Right now, the Lord is making some advances. It will be interesting to see what comes of it all. Stay tuned? I guess that's all you can do. I guess that's all I can do. Stay tuned.

  1. Random....we had the same thing happen with our first house. We were NOT ready to put it on the market. Adam had just been promoted so we thought MAYBE we could afford to move and get a bigger home and try for more babies, etc....when a lady came over and said, and I quote: "Hi! My sister lives next door. She said you are getting ready to move with your husbands promotion. I want to buy the house. Just tell me how much you want for it." Did you want a tour? "No...well, okay, I guess I can come in and look to see what size the closet is...and if I'll need to buy new appliances." Really?!?! Who does that! We weren't ready to move so we gave her a price about $22,000 over what it was worth...and she took it. No realtor. Just an inspection (which we insisted she do!) and a contract that her lawyer looked over! Done deal! We moved 20 days later. Crazy how things work out...all in God's timing...all working when we are OPEN to listen and OPEN to change within His plan! It will all workout in the end! Just be ready!

  2. Wow....God is moving! And random thing - I was just on Pinterest and saw a "California" sign and it made me think of you. I actually posted it to facbeook and tagged you in it. Which had me thinking of you and wanting to check in on your blog. And bam. This post. About California. So wild that someone knocked on your door......
