In deep waters....

 "He reached down from on high 
and took hold of me; 
he drew me out of deep waters. 
He rescued me from my powerful 
enemy, 
from my foes, who were too strong
for me. 
They confronted me in the day of my
disaster, 
but the LORD was my support. 
He brought me out into a spacious 
place; 
he rescued me because he
delighted in me." 

2 Samuel 22:17-20

  8. OH GOODNESS...I read this Scripture and than I read your *updated* post about your homebuyer. Praying for a smooth closing and so sorry you are having to go through this. Home buying/selling can be soooo stressful. LOVE that you are delving into God's Word to find your strength & patience. A friend once gave me a quote at my own time of adversity "I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much." ~Mother Teresa Your faith is SO abundant.

  11. I am confident that everything will iron out and you will be in your new (old) home very soon with your closing behind you. It will be all the sweeter because of all the yuck you have had to endure. Prayers and love.

  13. On my way out to my Beth Moore bible study but had to share this verse that you already know: "...for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him." Matt6:7. When our house was on the mkt for 9 months this is what got me through. Time for a big sweet pitcher of lemonade. Praying for you!

  15. Today wil have an ending,
    Tommorrow starts anew;
    Another chance to start again when all your plans fall through.
    Though sun may set upon your dream and turn to dust away,
    tommorrow's sun will rise again to show this is your day!

    Lifting you in prayer - this is your day!
