God can show us His blessings just by being still and
standing in Faith. God is so faithful, I’m just blown away by His mercies and
grace for my family, and recently He gave us a new miracle that I must share.
When we purchased our new home, it was only because of
standing on Faith and believing for a miracle because of changes enacted by the
worldly wisdom of congress - our financing went from 100% approved to 1% - but
because we serve a mighty God, we received a miracle. With our miracle came
renters for our other home that we were unable to sell. All we wanted was to
bless someone else, so we did everything we could for the renters but
unfortunately this January they were unable to complete the lease-to-buy,
due to their personal issues. Even in their extended circumstances we graced
them with staying in the home without paying while we prayed for a blessing to this
situation. I felt burdened that I was not to do anything, only pray and stand
in faith. This was incredibly difficult
to me, I’m used to trying to fix situations and doing everything I could to
take care of this, only to discover when I did I was really only making the situation worse. So finally I broke down and gave it to God, because
it was more than I could bear and He gave me this word – He told me that I just
needed to trust Him and have faith, be still.
So I did, I was still, and just when the world would think
all hope was lost – I received a phone call.
A neighbor to our old home called and asked if I was looking for new
renters, she said her best friend would LOVE to move into our home and asked if
she could give them my phone number. After I spoke with the family that was
interested, I was in shock – after speaking to the bank earlier, I knew I was
only able to renew the loan on the rent house for 6 months (balloon note, not a
mortgage) and this family said that they would like to move in immediately and
could rent for 6 months before they purchased the home (she works for a mortgage
company). People say God works in mysterious ways – I wouldn’t call them
mysterious, I’d just refer to them as His perfect timing.
This sweet family also goes to my church and we have been
joining together to pray for the family that was living in the house – because they
still needed to find a place to move into. Needless to say right before the ‘deadline’
they were able to find a new home and move out, with the new family able to move in. I have no teaching moment here,
just something I needed to share. I really shouldn’t be surprised by all of God’s
blessings – but I’m continuously humbled by his grace & mercy for me and my
family and I just want to give Him all the honor & glory only He is due!
