Exceedingly and Abundantly More...

Ephesians 3:20 is one of my favorite verses!  It says, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever ask or imagine, to Him be all the glory."  I couldn't wait to type this post!  My fingers can't type fast enough!  I have been in tears ALL DAY long because of God's goodness and faithfulness to me today.  Let me share the awesomeness of God that I encountered today...

It began around 10:30am.  I got a call from a man who said he wanted some information about a subdivision lot we have for sale.  As soon as he said those words, I smiled.  You see, I have been SPECIFICALLY praying that the lot we've had for sale for almost 6 months, would sell by January 31st.  I have prayed earnestly over that particular date, but I still asked God for His perfect timing and His perfect will in selling the lot.  When the call came today and the man on the other end of the line told me he wanted to BUY our lot, I almost fell apart on the phone.  Fortunately, I held it together until I hung up the phone, but as soon as the call ended, I fell to my knees and bawled.  I thanked God over and over and OVER for being such a good, faithful God!  Can you believe it?!  He could have had that person call several months ago or even yesterday, but he answered my specific prayer and the man called today, JANUARY 31st!  AMAZING!!!!

On top of that, God's goodness has been so evident in our lives with the sale of our house and the purchase of a new house!  I told you last week about how Mallory has been praying for over a year for us to live by my parents.  I told you the sweet story of the couple who had wanted our house 6 months ago when we first put it on the market, but had to save their money for a down payment before they could make an offer.  God allowed our house to be saved for them and He worked out the timing to fulfill His perfect plan.  Well, he has been working out details in the purchase of our new home, too.  With a set price in mind, we made a TOTALLY RIDICULOUS offer on a home 3 doors down from my mom and dad's house.  We knew that if the offer was accepted, that it would be a miracle from God.  Well friends, God is still in the miracle-working business!!!  Our offer was accepted and my little Mallory's prayers have been answered!!!  We will be moving in 2 weeks!!!!!!  The house needs a lot of updating, but we know it's where God wants us and are looking forward to updating it little by little as we can.

As Ephesians 3:20 says.... God has done exceedingly and abundantly more than we could have ever asked or imagined.  It's incredible and totally AMAZING!!!!  To Him be ALL the glory!!!!!  I can't wait to share pictures of our new home and start decorating it!!!  :-)
