The first thing that I did wrong was try to sell it when He told me and showed me in a dream that It was not going to be sold but disposed of in another way, which actually was to bring me twice as much as selling it. As money became tight and succumbing to pressure from others I put it on the market. I withheld the pressure a good while and God finally said that this was the time. I was happy. The Lord began telling me what to do, and how to do it. He had me clean out the house in a certain way and make sure all my paperwork with personal information on it was destroyed or sent to my home in Arkansas. I was so confident that I became cocky.
I began tell God what to do and how to do it. I would say Lord don’t do it when the Kids are here. Lord wait I am too tired today. He responded, “ Then juice” because when I would juice like He taught me to I had more than enough energy. Well, I said yes that would do it, but I didn’t do it. That was the last thing I heard from the Lord on that subject. When a month passed, I knew something was wrong. I then heard a message by Juanita Bynum, entitled the “Empire of my soul” and I knew what I had done wrong. I had become too cocky.
A year had passed and I was making ends meet and waiting to see if God would still dispose of the house in the same way, even though I believe He sent me a sign that He would. I was doing my Bible study one morning early as usual and I asked the Lord if He was still going to bless me in the same way concerning the house. As soon as I asked it the Spirit told me to start donating a small amount to a certain charity every money and I set up right away, instead of taking that as a yes I kept asking Him and asking Him.
A year has passed now and I am still making ends meet and getting a little relief here and there because of planting seeds. I get a call from my realtor and she said that someone wanted to purchase the home but He wanted to pitch the offer to me himself. The person that wanted to pitch the offer was the same realtor that I bought the home from and the same people that cheated me.
First they made me pay the back taxes on the place after they bought place from the bank in foreclosure ahead of me. They took four months to repair the place as stated in the contract after they received the money from me.
They had a person working in the office in the park where I purchased the home and she placed my paperwork in the completed files before escrow was completed. I called and called asking for escrow paperwork or a date and never received anything. I moved in June 15th and in October of that same year as I was riding by the office the Lord told me to stop in NOW. I pulled over and went in and the Manager just happened to be in and I told her what happened. She looked for my file but didn’t find it where it was supposed to be. When she did find it, the assistant secretly work for the realtor became nervous and called the agent, but the Manager was not happy and called the Realtor’s office and I received my paperwork in the mail the next week and the assistant was fired. Later that Realtor Agency was barred from activity in the park for a year.
All this is going through my mind as my realtor is telling me what they want, (which really, was to buy it from me for much less than I listed it for and resale it to the people that were waiting for it. My home was one of the best and largest in the area).
Just then as she was talking I heard a still small voice say, “just tell her you will pray about it.) I was just going to say it when anger overcame me. I became so angry that I could not stop telling her about what they did to me. I then said, NO tell them the price stands or just find them another home.
Well you know the end of the story, since I completely ignored the Lord the home did not sale or should I say I did not get the original blessing that I was supposed to get. It was another year when it sold and I received much more than I expected, but never got the blessing that the Lord wanted to give me originally because of how I waited for God. I actually stop believing that He would do it.
How do you wait on God? I believe that time period prepared me How to wait on Him now as this business in is forming.
Until next Time
