we could use your prayers

Not selling our house in Leimen is really hurting us financially. We are a one income family with 5 kids. We don't have the deep pockets some may think we have. Some may think it was foolish to move until we had a buyer. I guess they would be right. But Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith. And we did. We feel very good in our new house. We can afford our new house. We can not afford our old house too. This is the problem. Please pray that we can sell the house in Leimen. Sometimes, in a bad housing market you need grace. I have had over a 1000 hits on our house for sale blog...but that just means many people have looked at it. We need grace because carrying 2 house loans is really hurting us. Please help us with your prayers. Thank you.
BTW, every time I think about this issue I get afraid. I hate feeling like we are bleeding money. It's killing us. But every time I look around at where I am and what we have done I feel peace that it was right. I so need grace. Some things you can not make happen by your work or ability. I can not manage this without grace. Grace is Gods unmerited favor. Fear makes me feel like God will not provide. But I know that God is a good provider...his hand is big, his ways are perfect. I'm praying for help, and looking for help. Fear is only how I feel, but it is not how I live.

God "is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." (Ephesians 3:20).
