Pendulums Do Not Rock

I have never been fond of pendulums.  When I was young, there was a big ride at the fun park that was a giant ship on a pendulum, that swung high into the air backwards and forwards, backwards ad forwards, back and forw.., ba... and for....
I felt so sick when I got off of the ride, that I will never do it again.  Nor did I enjoy the swells out to sea while whale watching.  My inside don't cope well with the ebb and tide of the rocking. And so it is with the current pendulum I see to find myself riding.  It is always a thrill when you first begin the ride and then after a while it is just not funny anymore and you want to get off.  Did you hear me I want to get off!

Now before you think I've lost my mind and call mental health services, let me explain.  Since we have had our home for sale we have had 3 false alarms with buyers for our home.  Meaning that we prepare ourselves mentally for what may be a move and even begin to prepare physically, only to find that it all falls through.  It is wearing and I am over it.  Because we are moving interstate it is no small feat and if we get the green light then we need to act quickly.  Tomorrow is the cut off day for us.  If nothing comes of the contract by tomorrow we will be here another 6 months.  And oh how happy I will be to finally leap off the pendulum and rest my weary mind and spirit. 
We want to move on and do all God had prepared us to do but only once we are able to sell our home to finance it.  So I wonder if you can pray for us over the next few days.

For me to hold on bravely and with peace in my heart and head.  For me to be be a good wife and mum when my head is thinking about other things.  For God's will to be done with our home (we are facing tremendous resistance from the enemy), and for us to praise God though it all regardless of which way it turns out.  I am stumbling at the moment and just need your help. Thanks friends.
