I Can Only Pray and Hope, and Trust in God

I am trying to buy a plot of land to build a little house for my family. I have paid half of the price money. But the other half I haven't been able to pay for the last two years. The land-owner has been very patient with me but I cannot let the deal remain pending endlessly. Today, I went to the good gentleman's house to assure him that I will clear the payment in two months. I do have a part of the price saved but I don't know whence the rest will come. But somehow I feel a little lamp of hope burning within me. I am praying and hoping that God will help me complete this deal so that I can take the next step towards building my house. For those who have money, it is not a big deal to buy land and build their house but for me I have to trust in God every step to realize my dream. If you built your own house, what were your hurdles?

No, the owner did not kick me off. That's a blessing. I live 50 KM to the north from Calcutta. Though many people may be nasty around here but this gentleman is really very kind.

House is something that is based on TIMING....if the right time comes, it has to happen irrespective of all obstacles. The 1st house I booked 3 years back got into a tangle; when the broker cheated & then finally I bought my house 3 yrs after that incident...luckily I got back my money then.

Timing. That's what I heard from another person.Everything happens in the right time. A person also said, it's not only our luck but the land has its luck as well. When all lucks match, the home becomes a reality.

I do hope God will see fit to help you find a way to finalise the purchase of the land. This is the only house we have built but we had to save up too and make compromises along the way.

We never built our won house. We have owned 4 homes, but they were not new homes. I hope that God gives you the help you need.

Thank you for your prayer. I have a feel that the purchase will be a realty in a few months and by next year the home can be started.

I have not built my own house, although it is my dream to build and live in a treehouse. Is it possible you could ask your bank for a loan?
