Default Prayers please...

I feel selfish even asking for prayers for this while so many are losing jobs and facing such huge uncertainties.

We close on the sale of our home in 30 days and thought we would be in our new house immediately after. During inspection major water damage and termite issues were found so the contract was terminated. We were out inspection and option fees for that one. Next, we made an offer on our "plan b" house. During inspections, major foundation and electrical issues were found and some things that were known were found to not have been disclosed... so we terminated yet another contract and are out our inspection fees and option fees AGAIN.

Now we are up against a wall with no options left in our area that we like. We have expanded our search a little further out which would increase my wife's drive to work. Our mortgage guy is saying the process is slowing down a lot too with all of the craziness due to the virus. It looks like we may be stuck in limbo without a home for a period of time unless something changes quick. I would really appreciate some prayers as this has been a punch in the gut for us. Thanks

Prayer sent. Definitely a stressful situation, I've been there. Sounds like you dodged a bullet on both of those others though.

Sorry to hear! It sounds like you’ve avoided 2 major money pits in the long run... You probably don’t want to hear that, but maybe it was for the best. Maybe consider renting a short term lease until you find what your looking for?

It may not be a possibility but could you see if your buyer would be willing to push closing or close on schedule but then allow you to lease your current house for X amount per day and extend your move out date?

Prayers that you find the right fit

This maybe something that is at least proposed. I'm not sure of the seller's current situation.

Praying in agreement. Sounds like God is already steering the course for you. He will get you the best.

What guidance you already have had! He is working for you and protecting you now. Just hang on and follow Him! He will provide for you a way that is perfect.


Lord, we know You are our God and our Creator. You made us to worship You and You love us completely and take care of us. Right now we ask that You guide our brother Josh and his family to the perfect house, at the perfect time and the perfect price that is where You want them to be to best serve You. Show them the Way Lord, in Jesus name, Amen!

UPDATE: Thank y'all for the prayers. After expanding our search a little, we found a place by the lake in Coldspring. We made an offer yesterday and we are now under contract as of this evening. We will have an inspection on Monday morning, the third one in the last couple of weeks. The seller has already moved to Montgomery so he has reluctantly agreed to lease the home to us short term between the two closings. We feel like this is the house that God had waiting just for us. We are very thankful.
