It’s official…an update

I don’t feel like putting all the links back to the whole story of this all. Just go to the search bar on the blog and type in “update”, and you can read all that leads up to this.

I am officially moving to Texas. From there I will be traveling to only God knows where. And that is the best thing because He will pick all the best destinations.

I will keep posting verses, where there is wi-fi, and pictures from where I am. I am still here at “home for now” but as of the second week in January everything will pretty much be from Texas or where ever in this world the LORD is taking me.

We will be keeping our home here until we figure out all the details. I pray that y’all pray for me, as I have never been this far from where I was born, or lived my whole life.

Praise the LORD for all the blessings He bestows on us. By us I mean, me… you…and every one reading this post. I went from a demolished home, not knowing if my home would ever be livable to living half way across the country, and traveling the world.

God really does give us more that we can ever imagine.

LORD, thank you for blessing every one reading this :)

God is merciful… an update

Well if you have been keeping up, you know what is going on. If you haven’t here are the links to what has been going on in my life. Or should I say the life God has planned before I was born :) Praise the LORD :)

Here are the links to all that preludes this post, in case you missed them:
Praise the Lord y’all

An update….progress is good?

Well, since all of that happened the LORD has proven to me once again that man knows nothing.

Man said this would be months in the making. God proves that with Him all things are possible and it has taken a fraction of that time.

It has been lots of hard work but He has given us the strength to be able to accomplish this.

We are back in our house.

Everything is mold free. Everything works. Building inspections have all passed. AND the building inspector couldn’t stop raving about how he has been in million dollar houses and $50,000  houses and  he could not remember one of them. None of those houses stood out but, to him, our house is beautiful.

I might have blown this off as him being nice but he went on and on about every detail about how our home stood out. About how as he walked up the porch, looking in, all he could think was, “this is so beautiful.”

Praise the LORD. :)

Now, the miraculous part of the story, if that wasn’t miraculous enough. We will probably be moving soon. Really soon as God has provided us with an opportunity that is more than what we could have imagined. Which is what His Word says, does it not?

It is a great opportunity for us, and travel galore! I just talked about traveling, LORD willing in the post The Barnabas Award, and hallelujah. God has provided. You can read it here. I don’t mean just a little travel here and there. I mean a lot of travel all over the world!!!

Again I stand in awe of our Almighty God :)

I am in such awe of all that our Almighty God provides that I really don’t know what else to say in this post other than our LORD hears our prayers. He answers us. And He fights for us every single minute of every single day. He loves us so much more than we can comprehend.

So, when things look impossible, they are not because we have God. Get ready for God has something greater than you ever imagined waiting for you on the other side of what we  perceive “impossible”.

LORD, thank You for blessing everyone reading this post :)

An update…progress is good?

Well, sorry I haven’t been too talkative as of late. There have been so many changes, revelations, and just plain lessons.

I need prayers please

God blessed us with a wonderful place to stay while our home was being repaired then Hurricane Dorian blew threw, The blessing soon came to an end as when we returned to the condo it had been flooded, and we were without a place to stay.

A preacher had replaced the felon who originally started repairs to our home. The preacher assured us that for a price, $55,000.00 everything on the list of repairs would be done. We had to purchase the cabinets, the carpet, and flooring but everything from the studs up would be replaced, and all the windows, and flooring would be installed.

Well, Ecclesiasted later began to change his word.

He said things like, “your husband told me not to worry about this and that.” As if we didn’t need windows or flooring, or a kitchen.

I stood with him in my yard going over the list.

We had drawn out a full diagram of our home, and a diagram of all the rooms and listed everything that had to be done. He called and said everything on the the list is $55,000.00 we just had to buy the flooring and caninets but the installation of those things plus the repairs were included.

After 2 hours in my yard discussing this he told me, “I never looked at the list”

So, now I know where we stood.

The work he did was sub-par to put it nicely.

Crooked walls, paint pealing, bows in walls, nails popping threw, lines and mounds where the tape and puddy lines. I have pictures I will post. You can tell me if “I am just being picky” since that is what the preacher told me.

So, here we sit. Living in the building behind our house. Sleeping on a couch, and finishing the repairs ourselves.

The cleaning crew I had to hire because after a week of tryig to clean, since the workers didn’t clean one day while they were here(something Ecclesiates promised they would do) and running my HVAC system the WHOLE time, (while cutting wood inside, sanding, etc. ) so it had to be cleaned too, the cleaning crew told me they were so upset for me because of how BAD the work was done.

They said from my tub and sinks that are 16 years old how well I had taken care of our house, for these people, a man of God no less, destroyed our home. We have hard water, and they said mine were like brand new, as if they had never been used, so they KNEW I had always been maticulous with the things God provided us.

So, we will be installing the cabinets and flooring ourselves, even though we paid some one, a man of God as he so affectionately likes to refer to himself, to do the work. We will have to purchase the window, and install them ourselves, we will be sanding, mudding, and repainting every wall in our home, although as I said, we paid a man of God to do all this work for us.

The carpet we will have to pay someone else to do, even thought we have already paid, well, as I said a man of God to do this.

It has really caused me to doubt my judgment. God has always blessed me with being able to discern people. I have heard more than once that I have always been able to “see” right through people. Now I am doubting that.

I know God has a reason, a season, a lesson here for me to learn. I hope I learn it quickly as I am getting tired with this whole period in my life.

Praise the LORD for I know when I am weak, as I am now, He is strong. If not for knowing He is merciful, I don’t know what I would do.

I thank God for blessing everyone reading this.

 

I don’t really know what to title this… an update

If you are familiar with all that is going on you can skip the links. If not please feel free to read all about it Praise the LORD y’all, and Feeling more than blessed and I need prayers please

If you are up to date then I will give you a short update as I am just to exhausted to do anything else.

After Dorian, the condo that God had so graciously blessed us with got flooded. So, we are back to square one. We are living in the building behind our house :) Praise the LORD. It is all that I know to do. I don’t know the why’s, or the reason for all of this but I know that the LORD has a huge blessing for us on the other side of this because the evil one doesn’t work this hard for nothing. He wants us to give up, to turn around , or to give into doubt.

I refuse.

Not trying to sound perfect. I have cried. I have been angry, frustrated, scared, soul searched. I have been through it all.

BUT I know that God is fighting for us, just like He fights for every one reading this.

I thank all of you for your prayers. I can’t wait to share what this blessing will be.

I thank God for blessing every one reading this. Amen.

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and He did hear my voice out of His temple, and my cry did enter into His ears. 2 Samuel 22:7

For Thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. — 2 Samuel 22:29

Praise the LORD y’all :)

I have so much going on, and am so exhausted that I can’t post a full update. But y’all the LORD does so much for us that I just wanted to give Him some praise, and I pray you all do the same.

We might not see it. We might not understand it. But if we keep our faith in Him, and trust that He wants what is best for us, praise His Holy, Holy, Holy name for He will provide us with all the mercy that He has promised He would.

Stop what you are doing and give the Almighty living God the praise He deserves.

I ask God to bless everyone reading this :) And I thank Him for always hearing us and answering our prayers. :)

What is put in front of us…an update

I praise the LORD for always putting in front of us what He wants us to see.

I will update all of you, my wordpress family, on the happenings with my house very soon.

There always seems to be things that happen to us that I ask the LORD why?

Well, He is revealing to me the why at this point. I ask that you all pray for me to listen to Him, and not jump to my fleshly desires to “fix” all these things that only He can fix.

Trials come, and although I might not like them, and might not know why, the Good LORD reveals all if we have eyes to see, and ears to hear.

Praise God for His wisdom that is far past what we can understand. Praise God for the strength to get through what we, at first, think is the end of the world, and see that the end of this world will come when He decides. Not when we think it is so.

I ask God to bless everyone who is reading this. And I thank every single one of you for your prayers because they are worth more than everything this world has to offer.
