Logan and I have been married for over a year, and we've been wanting to buy a house since our engagement. Every time we'd consider buying a house, though, it just felt like the timing was wrong. In April, we started to seriously look at houses for sale and even put an offer on one in May. That one didn't work out, and for the next couple of months, there were no houses on the market that we liked in our price range. It was pretty frustrating, because the timing finally felt right, and we had been saving up for a down payment - but there was nothing we wanted to buy.
Sometime in July, I got a text message from our agent about a house she thought we'd be interested in. Turns out, Logan and I were on the same street as the house for sale..and only a block away. So we drove past it and immediately liked it. It was cute, big, and a great price for the size. And as you may have guessed, we now own that house.
I know that in the big picture, 2 years of waiting to buy a house is not that big of a deal. But it's definitely been a lesson for me that God always has a plan, even when you can't see it. In the situation with our house, it was definitely worth the wait in the end, because we have an awesome house that is bigger and a much better deal than any other house we've looked at. Logan and I feel pretty darn blessed.
We think it'll be the same way when we have a baby - totally worth the wait.
We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28
