Waiting by the phone

It's a miracle that I have fingernails. I bite them when I'm bored, nervous, or awake.
I really have no reason to be nervous. I know that we don't want to be where God doesn't want us. I know that if this is our house, it will be ours, and no one else's.
So why can't I turn off my brain?
I have always been the type of person that when I decide to do something, I want to start doing it yesterday. Waiting around for someone else to make decisions is really hard for me.!
So I feel the need to go get some boxes and start packing things. I don't even know if our offer will be considered, much less accepted. I'm going to have to stop obsessing.
(And yes, I realize it's a holiday weekend, and I will NOT hear anything before Tuesday.)

2 Corinthians 10:5 b
and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

I will be praying for you. It is easy to know with your head that God is in control, but to let your heart accept it is a horse of another color sometimes.

Thanks, Kelli. I keep trying to tell myself that. I don't want to set my heart on this house too much, because there's a big chance we won't get it, and I don't want the place God does have for us colored with the disappointment of not getting this one.

I swear you and I are related. I think we were somehow separated at birth.

Still praying for you to get that good news call.
