My Big News!//Let Your Light Shine Thursday

Happy Thursday (Almost Friday) Everyone!

I mentioned earlier this week that I had some big news to reveal so I thought today would be a good day.



It is official, 

I am going to be a homeowner!



I put an offer on a town home I love found out last week my offer was accepted. I close next week! 

I never though I would be 23 and becoming a homeowner. 
At first I was nervous and seeking people's advice on what to do, but I remembered one thing, one scripture.

"According to your faith let it be done unto you." 

I had to remember that I felt God was calling me to buy a house instead of rent. And regardless of my feelings and other people's opinions, it was about believing in God and having faith that I was making the right step.

It wasn't until I put my faith into action that I started seeing things fall into place. You see, before I decided to make an offer, I kept doing different budgets and they all turned out different, making me nervous that maybe buying a home isn't the best thing for me. I couldn't find a roommate, I was nervous about how much everything would cost, etc.

I prayed to God to put obstacles in my path if it weren't the path for me and to have the offer be denied if it weren't the place for me. Well every place I had seen had multiple offers on them except this one. & I loved this place the most. It was odd, right? Maybe. But to not rush things or do things "my way" I waited about a week to put in an offer, but it was like this place was waiting for me. I kept hesitating to put in an offer but when I finally did, the seller accepted my bid, everything is going smoothly, I have potential roommates, and my finances are in order. 

It's almost like God was just waiting for me to act on my faith to show me that everything was going to be in good hands-- His hands! 

I always remember this scripture,too:


Jesus wants to do beyond all we could ask or think, but it's according to the power that works within us. Our power is our faith in and through the Holy Spirit! I have to remember that no matter what life brings me, I have a Savior that wants to give me all I could ever imagine. Now that's a God I am honored to serve!

Do you have a testimony of how God is working things out in your life? I would love to hear them! Please comment below and share your story :)
