It’s unbelievable how in one week’s time we can go from the bottom of the pit to the mountain top. Thank you God!
I shared in last week’s blog what a difficult time I was having when my condo fell through for the third time. Even though I struggled with disappointment and fear, I knew deep down that it would sell at the perfect time and to the right and perfect person. My prayer was, “Your will God, not mine be done.”
Today, I am in deep gratitude and my heart rejoices as I received a full price offer on my condo yesterday and it will probably close in 30 days (sooner than the last buyer). Here is what happened:
A couple of weeks ago, I asked for prayers that my condo would sell from my Face book friends. Many people responded and said they would pray. I received an offer from a woman within a few days.
In the meantime, I received a text from my friend, Cathy, who worked at the VA with me before moving to Maui. She saw it on face book and responded. I called Cathy “my angel” because she spent many hours helping me with computer stuff when I was writing Simply A Woman of Faith. I could not have done it without her assistance.
Cathy wrote, “I have a friend, George, who is looking for a place to buy, is yours still available?” We had just signed the agreement the day before so I had to tell her that I had another offer.
A week later, the women backed out and the condo was back on the market again. I remembered Cathy’s friend, George, and contacted her immediately. She said, “George is still interested.” I gave her my real estate agent’s number for him to call.
George and I started texting and I asked him “What are you looking for?” He said, “Someplace close to the VA, small and ready to move in.” It sounded perfect for him as it was only a few blocks away from the VA and it was ready to move in to.
George came to look at the condo the next day and fell in love with it. I shared with George that Cathy was “my angel” when I worked at the VA. He wrote back and said, “Cathy is my angel too.”
After he put his offer in and I accepted it, he texted me and said, “THANK YOU PAT. We are very happy. We invite you to stop by when you come back to Rhode Island. “
My real estate agent, Bethany, later informed me that George and his girlfriend were expecting a baby and she was 7 months pregnant and ready to nest. That brought tears to my eyes because I knew that they were the perfect family to buy my condo that is filled with love and peace.
I continue to learn through this experience of closed doors and waiting on God. I had to be patient, have faith, let go and trust that God’s timing is perfect. It is clear that the closed doors had nothing to do with me and what I’m doing or not doing. In other words, I wasn’t doing anything wrong.
I had to wait for George to SHOW UP. I believe that everything is planned in the mind of God and I am always being guided. If I hadn’t asked for prayers on Face book, Cathy wouldn’t have known I was selling the condo.
Thank God we cannot see the whole picture and what Spirit is doing in the background. It is always for our highest good and guaranteed that the right door will open at the right divine time.
