Our home is for sale. Interested? It’s a great place and a great deal… Let me know. I can set you up. Of course, it’s a lousy time to be selling a house. We don’t have a choice… We’re moving temporarily to Hawaii. I know, I know, from Minnesota to Hawaii for the winter… You’re not feeling sorry for us… But in all candor, it’s troubling prospect. We have a great home in a great area and we’re positioned at a great price. Still, in the last 6 weeks we’ve had three showings. The market just isn’t budging. And if the market gurus are the be believed, it may not get any better anytime soon. With thousands of thousands of foreclosures still pending, true market value is still hard to determine. Nothing is moving.
For many of us this is a challenge and for some, even a crisis. We need God’s wisdom and sustaining strength. We need him to play matchmaker and bring us the right buyer, someone searching now for just what our home offers. He can do that…
“God, we thank you that we can trust you for a roof over our head. You promise this and you deliver! We thank you for giving us our home. We need to pass it off into other hands now, however, and we ask for your blessing in this process. We ask you to be our primary real estate agent. Bring us together with the right buyer, someone looking now for the specific criteria we offer. Play matchmaker, Father. Give us wisdom to make any changes in the home itself or in our expectation of price to bring this about. Give us creativity to look outside the box and to think of new possibilities. We trust you with this whole transaction. Act soon. In Jesus…”
