Our family is currently going through some very stressful times and we need prayer! We have a home we are trying to sell and we have a 2nd home we are remodeling. We have a 4 year old daughter and another baby due in about 8 weeks. Our finances won't hold out much longer with two mortgages and the expense of another baby on the way. We've been trying to sell our house for close to a year and have dropped the price down 2 times already. We really need to see God's in control because right now it doesn't feel like it. We've continued to tithe even though our $ is so tight. Please pray with us that something will happen soon!

Malachi 3:10 according to tithing "Prove me now in this if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out such blessing that you will not have enough room to receive it." Sometimes it is last minute or not what we expect but keep your faith, He WILL come through for you.

Thanks Father! Help Naomi and her family to remember this time and how you looked after them, and continue to trust you for all their needs.

I know it's been a long time since I posted anything about the sale of our house... But I have AWESOME NEWS! We closed on our house on Jan 20th and are currently the proud owner's of ownly ONE HOUSE! God really took care of us through this very rough time in our lives and we were able to pay all of our bills (double) for 18 months. God is amazing! Thank you all for your prayers!

Father, please help Naomi and her husband to love each other. May trials draw them closer to each other and to you.

It's trials like this that show us exactly what our foundation is. Are we gonna crumble at the first blow of the wind? Or are we gonna stand strong, no matter what comes at us? My niece was fired from her job 3 months ago. It was totally God, because He has been telling her she needed to change her career path (she's in law school and working as a paralegal). She is living literally each day, by faith. God brings someone to her that wants their house cleaned, or help moving, and it's enough for her needs today or this week. He is teaching her to walk very close to His side, and depend on Him for everything, and NOT, EVER look at the circumstances.

I am truly thankful, sweetheart, that you are listening to His still, small Voice. He has you in the palm of His hand, and wants you to understand you are perfectly safe. God is soooo good!

God bless, sweetheart

please continue to pray... God's really been working on my attitude and has shown me I need to be much more thankful through this experience. He has continued to provide for my family and though money is very tight we've still been able to pay our bills and buy food to eat. Our house hasn't sold, but God is good and has not forgotten us.

It's been a rollercoaster of a week... we had 4 showings last week... one of them said they were going to the bank and would put an offer on this week. We just found out today they've put their home buying "on hold"... Very discouraged. Please continue to pray with me.

I'm still praying, honey. I know it's difficult when you can't see your prayers being answered, but that is what faith is. God's ways are beyond ours--we just have to hold on.

God bless, honey, this will all work out.

I'm 2 days from my due date... baby doesn't seem to be coming out any time soon... must be pretty comfy in there. I had a bit of a breakdown yesterday after I spent the night before cleaning our entire house for a showing... only to have the people cancel... they drove by and didn't like that our house has an alley beside it. thankfully my husband and close friends were a major encouragement. i know the hormones with pregnancy aren't helping... trying to trust God through all of this. thank you all again for your prayers.

Father, we don't always know Your 'why's', but we know that we HAVE to trust that YOU have our best interests at heart. We pray that You hold Naomi and her husband tightly. We pray You bring peace where there seems to be none and faith to face WHATEVER You have for them with courage and strength. We rebuke the spirit of discouragement in the Name of Jesus! We pray, Holy Spirit, that You bring wisdom and knowledge to this situation, and show Yourself mighty to them. We thank You, Father, that You are here--let Naomi feel Your Presence. In Jesus' Name, amen.



God bless, honey. I know this is a hard place right now, but hold fast to your faith, and God WILL show Himself!

Financing was not improved. We have a buyer who can't buy : ( I'm really reaching my breaking point. I don't understand this rollercoaster ride we're on right now... but I really need God's peace and provision more than anything right now.

Wonderful news, sweetie!

Lord, we bring Naomi and fam to you. They need this house to sell. We ask for favor for the buyers with the bankers, we ask for a good offer to give Naomi money to put down on another house. We pray for peace in all this situation, and we are grateful to You for Your care. Amen

The couple who walked through really liked the house and plan on putting an offer down. They're meeting with the bank tomorrow. Please pray they can get the financing and their offer will cover what we owe on the house and closing costs. I know this is in God's hands. Our little baby is due March 15th. It would be such a load off to know we finally have a buyer. PLEASE PRAY! : 0 )

well ladies, they thought the bedrooms were too small so we got another no. We're 3 weeks away from the due date. I have peace right now, which I know only comes from God. Please continue to pray. I know God's timing is not ours.

Thank you all for your prayers! We are having an open house tomorrow. This will be our last open house before our little Baby Girl arrives, and then we probably won't have one again until late April. Please pray God would send the right person to walk through our house tomorrow. I know God is in control and I know He has a plan. Please pray I will trust Him and His plan no matter what the outcome.

We got the news today that the buyer is going with a different house... priced the same as ours but with more bedrooms. I had myself a really really good cry. I'm sure some of these emotions have to do with being 9 months preggers, but I feel like I am on the edge of a major emotional breakdown. I don't know how much more of this I can handle. I really appreciate the prayers. I need them more than ever.

We should find out today if the buyer is going to make an offer or not... It's 2pm and we're still waiting. Please pray we'll have our answer soon and that it will be a GREAT OFFER! Please pray that I will trust God with this entire situation.

Rec'd the showing report and they loved our house, but did not like the location... so no offer coming our way. It's really hard not to be completely crushed by this news. I need to trust God that He has this all in his Hands! Thank you all for your prayers! Please don't stop.
