Easier Said Than Done

That's my motto lately, especially with my faith. Shortly after Ben and I discovered our family addition, we began questioning the possibility of moving. Now don't get me wrong: I love our home! So much in fact that I completely dismissed the idea of moving. The more I prayed about it however, the more I was reminded of God's call for us to open up our home. We've really felt convicted to not only invite others over for fun times and good food, but to stay. Anyone remember Lukka from last summer? There have been other instances of international students who have needed a place to stay for a few days or a few months and through Global Connections, there will be plenty more opportunities. So with that prodding and a combination of other things, our house is now on the market.

Now what I've been telling myself and others all along is, Well, if God wants us to move, this house will sell! No doubt about it. That's where it's easier said than done. Now that we are actually doing this thing, I have been slowly taking it all back. Doubt and worry have been seeping in, and those things are not coming from a faith-filled, trusting heart. So there's a little update on what is going on in the Martin household. I must say that Ben and I have made a really good team when it comes to cleaning and touch-ups around the house though. And it's been fun to house hunt together with our future family in mind, since Ben already owned this house before I was even a twinkle in his eye...
