Y’all, it has been a hard week. I mentioned here that we are currently trying to sell our home, and I am finally feeling the wear and tear from daily staging and caring for my toddler alone. Mi Amor has been traveling for 2 weeks, and while keeping the home clean with one less person is helpful, I am really feeling exhausted. So where do I turn to in times of distress? God’s Word.
Don’t get me wrong – I am still struggling. If I have learned anything in 2017 it is that God’s plan is so much better than mine. But in the thick of it, it can be challenging to be patient. Waiting on God can feel like being on the phone with no one on the other end. But I know He’s there, listening and working to make everything better than I can imagine.
So prayer it is. I need to be in His Word, in relationship with Him to get through this tough season.
If you are feeling anxious about selling your home (or going through something similar), I’ve put together these 6 scriptures to give you peace. I encourage you to use these in your prayers – there is nothing more powerful than using God’s Word when speaking directly to him!
I’ve included some pretty graphics. And, of course, these are all from my favorite Bible, She Reads Truth Bible (CSB).
Let us not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up.
Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

She evaluates a field and buys it; she plants a vineyard with her earnings.
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.
The Lord brings poverty and gives wealth; He humbles and He exalts.
1 Samuel 2:7
I hope these can help bring you peace as they do for me. I need to constantly remind myself that my perfect timing isn’t HIS timing. And that’s a good thing.
