My heart is so overjoyed right now! I am in such awe of God’s wondrous love!
Two weeks ago, Gary and I decided that we were going to sell one of our investment properties – a beautiful condominium unit in Laguna Niguel, CA. We are at a stage right now where we are experiencing a “correction” and re-direction of our financial goals and it was best to simplify our lives and be able to really PROSPER WHERE WE’RE PLANTED ( a lesson we learned the hard way) and continue with our War On Debt, which Dani Johnson, Joyce Meyer and Dave Ramsey all have taught us.
We have wonderful tenants in that property and what was really sad for us was to see them have to move. However, we wanted to be obedient to the strong leading to sell that property so we contacted our trusted realtor friend and 2 days ago, that property was finally listed as For Sale.
Gary’s initial concern to our decision was that the property might sit in the market for months and that the listing would go stale and we might have to be dealing with low ball offers. That day, I read to Him the promises on the Book of Deuteronomy and we as a family believed that all things do work together for good!
We had peace in accepting that the sale of this condo was part of God’s bigger plan and if that was the case, He would go before us and pave the way for an effortless sale. That if we walk by faith and not by sight, that God will open doors that no one can shut and close doors that no one can open. I knew in my heart that by not letting fear get the best of us and by being obedient, that we will sell that condo at the perfect time – not one day late, not one day early.
Today, is the day that miracle happened. After the property has been listed for ONLY 2 days, Gary called me and said, “Honey, I have good news, a better news and an even better news!” I knew it had something to do with the condo sale. He said “THE REALTOR CALLED AND SAID WE GOT AN OFFER AND THE BUYERS ARE WILLING TO PUT 50% DOWN AND THEY WANT A 15 DAY ESCROW AND THEY WANT OUR TENANTS TO STAY!”
I don’t know about you but to me, that is one GIANT FUNNEL OF FAVOR FROM GOD! After I hung up from Gary, I got down on my hands and knees and wept to God in utmost and inexplicable GRATITUDE! Every day, we have miracles upon miracles happening in our lives but what happened today was beyond anything we ever expected and I am speechless but my spirit rejoices!
Why am I sharing this? Because I believe that if you’re reading this, we have somewhat made a connection either on Facebook, Twitter or our mutual social media sites, and to really connect and build true relationships with people, I believe in transparency.
More importantly, it’s because I am all about HOPE – I am a messenger of hope! I know that if there is one person who will read this post and get encouraged by it, then I have paid this miracle forward and have given credit to whom credit is due!
In this time of uncertainty for most people, my family made a decision that we will pray for an extra heap of courage and wisdom so that we will not fear and will have our eyes fixed on the Lord…
It is my prayer for all of you who are faced with doubt and fear that you will find that peaceful place where you can truly believe to receive daily miracles.
That every day, regardless of your situation, you will learn to say over and over what I learned from Joyce Meyer: “Something good is going to happen to me today and I can hardly wait to see what God has in store for me!”
WE HAVE MADE A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO SQUISH THE FEAR AND FEED OUR FAITH! I pray that this article will somewhat help encourage and remind you to do the same!
