Trusting the Process
Initially, I had someone there in charge of selling it, but it seemed they were not putting much effort and time into the process. A friend there recommended another real estate agent as being very knowledgeable and aggressive. So I hired her.
I had been praying throughout this time for God to provide the right help and the right buyer and to bless the process.
Within a month's time she found an interested buyer and the process began. Upon signing the contract and receiving the first payment, what I believed would be a smooth process became a very challenging one. First, we encountered issues with my documentation. Not having a permanent residency there anymore since I moved back to the US, slowed the whole process. Dealing with the bank and government offices to process payment and taxes became a real struggle. Even issues with the original title have had to be addressed. I never imagined this!!! Lawyers, money, time, confusion. OMG. Of course, I began to feel disappointed, frustrated, and stressed out.
Now back home in the US, I've continued working at a distance with the agent and lawyers there resolving these issues. I began to feel fear of losing the opportunity to sell to this buyer; having already paid the 5% commission from the initial down payment. And fear of losing a lot of money.
I had to face the fear head on!!! I remembered I had prayed and I needed to trust God in this process. Since that moment that I decided to shift my focus from the fear to God, I feel much more at peace and confident that all will work out as it is supposed to. I don't know how it will transpire, but I trust it will be as it should. Even though feelings of doubt do come up, I choose each time to trust. And I really do feel peaceful about it all. It's like resting and allowing and giving it over to my Higher Power.
