So we did it. We actually went through with it. No turning back. We took a leap of faith.
Zack and I bought another house :)
Part of me is SUPER excited!!! We've wanted another house to flip for a few months now, and out of nowhere, this perfect investment, in the exact area we wanted, for a steal of a deal fell in our laps. So, after a considerable amount of time in prayer, seeking God's will, getting advice from other godly men, and discussing EVERY positive and negative part of this decision, WE DID IT!
So now, we young, seminary students, own two houses, in a time of financial downfall in the economy. scary, isn't it??
Not as much for us, as we have been praying about this decision fervently, asking God not to give us this house if it were not His will for us to have it. And now we have it. And now we wait to see what He has planned for our future...
-will we be able to afford both houses?
-will someone be renting out our house?
-if so, who? when?
-what problems, if any, will arise with the new house?
So many questions!!! But for us, not stressful at all. The human side of us wants to freeeaaak out, but having the Holy Spirit in our lives, and knowing we're following His will and plan brings a calming, peaceful joy to our hearts!!!
What is something in your life that you've had to jump out on a leap of faith about? What was the experience like???
