“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” – Mat 7:24-27
Happy Anniversary to OUR HOME! My husband and I built this house from the hole in the ground up in 1997. Well, we actually hired a construction company and crew. We just picked out the details. From the model, the color scheme, the siding, brick, carpet tile, to light fixtures.. I was not as close to the Divine as I am now, I had the absolute Divine living in me- but did not always seek or trust that inner voice of God as I do now. So my main focus was “how the house was goining to look” and that it would be cozy and safe enough to raise a few rambunctious kids (and who knew grandloves too). 😉
As we sat in a clostophobic buisness office to close on a home we watched be build from the ground up, this home in which we almost lost at the very last minute. I can remember this hot summer day; July 31, 1997, was our day of getting handed the keys to our future home for our future family. The numbers came back that during our loan process we took on another debt (Bob bought me a $10,000 engagement ring), which meant we’d have to come up with another $5,000 dollars at the closing.. and as a young couple with no savings (I know this was a start of a pattern of failure right there. Do not operate out of such pattern, always have savings – budget, sacrifice, disipline oneself, do without, gain and build self control).
I about threw up when the construction companies laywer said, “well sorry you can’t have the home,” – the owner of the company said “well wait a minute we can work something out.” In those few moments of sadness and panick as I was just about to hypervenaliate, I stopped and tapped into my Divine inner still small voice and prayed.. It was as if My ABBA DADDY spoke to my heart – “the Father always provides for His children, when you stop to seek Me you will find Me, when you start to trust Me things will happen.”
~”Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow.”- James 1:17
Next as Bob and I started calling our parents to bail us out and borrow us the money, they decided to allow us to post date a check for $1,000 and promised not to cash it till the date we said it would be covered.. (next pay check) living moment to moment and pay check to paycheck. This satified the lawyer, and the zillion amounts of papers were signed and the keys handed to US, The home was OURS! IT WAS AT THIS MOMENT THAT I REALIZED THIS HOME WOULD BE BUILT ON THE WORD OF THE LORD!
~ “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”- Josh 24:15
I truly realize that God is as REAL as the HOME we built 20 years ago; He is THE DIVINE, HE IS THE ALMIGHTY FATHER, HE IS THE SON (THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT) THIS WORLD HAS EVER SEEN AND EVER WILL SEE. FOR THE WORD GOD IS STRONG AND TRUE AND EVERY WORD BREATHS PHROPECY AND TRUTH- AS IT SPECIFIES OUR PERFECT GIFT FROM ABOUVE AS NONE OTHER THAN JESUS!
~”For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” -Isa 9:6
We can KNOW God and GOD IS REAL, GOD IS ALIVE.. BELIEVE, RECIEVE AND THE FOUNDATION SHALL BE STABLE UPON THE ROCK because ABBA DADDY PROVIDES!
~To all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God,” – John 1:12
ALWAYS TRUST DADDY! ❤
~”Hope in Lord Jehovah from your whole heart and do not trust upon the wisdom of your soul. Know Him in all your ways and he straightens your paths.”
