Sold OUT!

Last two years ago, my husband and I were planning to purchase our own house and lot for us to save money since we were renting a house for nothing. As we were strolling around the subdivision, we found a vacant house & lot with the tag on the gate “House & Lot for Sale” with contact # on it. The place was indeed a good place to live in since it was a just 2 blocks away from my parent’s house. I see to it it’s near with my mom for the reason that she can easily over see my daughter as she grows up since I’m a working mom. As I texted the contact person, I found out that the owner of the house was my friend’s father. That’s good; I can make or ask for a certain discount! They sold it for P 450,000.00, since I’m a friend of him they gave me a discount of 50,000. Not bad at all..But the question was, where shall we get that amount of money?...hhhmmm…LOAN? for how many years? 30? What we did, we handed it over to God, and lift it up to Him. We pray for it over and over…God-willing, He will do something for the house- it’s either the price would go down or send us that exact amount of money (we believe that our God is the God of all possibilities).

As we waited for God’s answer, we lost contact with the person until such time, it was indeed an answered prayer. The price did already lower down to P 290,000.00. See? Imagine how God works. I told my husband regarding this matter. We come up with the decision that we will buy the house and lot and made a deal with my “M’s” friend just this Friday. I thought the deal was already made close, but it was not. I just found out this morning that the house & lot was already sold to somebody yesterday. I felt so depressed. I immediately called and informed my husband. I told him, “WHY? Was this really the will of God that we can’t buy it and since we believed it was an answered prayer?” He just then answered me with this simple statement: Don’t worry honey, God has a greater plan for us..He has already prepared a much better house and lot or if not a MANSION that awaits for us in heaven…and that’s for REAL!”
