You can’t LIMIT GOD

Here I am at the crack of dawn giving God praises and GLORY for being more than AMAZING!!!! God has a way of doing things that ensures he WILL GET ALL THE GLORY! God woke me up out of my sleep and asked me, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU INSPIRED SOMEONE. He said because that’s what you do, you inspire people. People are watching you whether you like it or not. My answer was, I think last week, I think. See when God start to ask you questions, you better get a little worried lol. He wants to know are you using what I gave you to use or should I give it to someone else. For me, I’m like I better get it together. So here it is, I hope we as in God, my husband, and I inspire someone TO NOT LIMIT GOD!

Recently both my  husband and I just purchased our very first home. EXCITED MOMENT IN OUR LIVES!!!!😊😊 Every time I think about the process the words that come to my mind is, DO NOT LIMIT WHAT GOD COULD DO FOR YOU!!! God met us in that process with BOLD INSTRUCTIONS! See when he gives you BOLD INSTRUCTIONS please do not hesitate to MOVE!! He is a man of his word and I haven’t seen his words return back to him voided. Even when you do not understand THE INSTRUCTIONS GOD GIVES YOU, MOVE ANYWAY! It’s call trusting him and having faith in him!

The beautiful thing I love about God, is he will have you feeling like ion know God, but then YOU WOULD BE SO CALM ABOUT IT. Peace is what that is called. Someone said, when GOD IS IN IT, PEACE WILL BE PRESENT! I truly believe that with all my heart!!!

So the process began and I personally set a budget, talked it over with my husband and we went from there. We looked at 4-5 homes in that process. We was very adamant on what we wanted to spend for a home. So the first home we decided to go with, was all wrong! It didn’t really have everything we wanted in the home,  but it was a brand new home that had just been built. It is funny how God works, when he don’t want something to happen in your life, HE LEAVES AND SO DOES THE PEACE👀😬😩🤔!! I love emojis lol. God usually speaks to you in the strangest times of the day, usually when he has your undivided attention. For me, that’s usually before the crack of dawn.

My family and I was on vacation in Florida, ending the summer. God woke me up at 3:30 am that Tuesday morning and said BACK OUT THAT HOUSE! I said God we put $1000 down and we may not get it back. You telling me to tell my husband we need to back out. He said I didn’t tell you to get that house in the first place. He said BACK OUT! I said ok! Realizing the process was so stressful and nothing was coming together with that house. When God is not in it, PEACE WILL NOT BE THERE!!!

I waited until later that day and called the realtor and spoke with the lender. I said we are going to walk away from that house. My heart was beating super fast, I begin to cry because my kids had picked their rooms, and it was our first home. I looked up to the God and said but I trust you. Even when it don’t feel good to you, still trust God!!! He is a man of his word, and his word says ALL THINGS WORK FOR THE GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE ME! And of course my favorite scripture proverbs ch 3 vs 5-6 LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING BUT IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE AND TRUST GOD!

So we were back at square one. Confused and feeling like we just handed someone $1000 and it was gone just like that.

So we began to look at other homes and nothing was matching our style. NOTHING!! So I was up late one night and this home caught my eye but the price was so high, I was like it’s no way we could afford this. I just kept going back to it. So I finally sent it to my husband and he was like it’s super nice but that’s too much. The crazy part is the people had already came down $10,000. I said it’s no way they will come down anymore to fit our budget. I couldn’t let this house go. So I told my husband, I’m going to send it to the realtor and let’s just look at it. He said man for WHAT! We not getting that house, it’s too expensive! I said we just looking at it, you just never know. I said I will pray on it if it’s something we like. He said ok. Well because we had been in a budget, when I sent it to the realtor she called and said this HOUSE IS OUT THE BUDGET! I said I know, but we just want to see it!

We look at 3 homes that day, and finally the home that was by far the best home we looked at. We walked in and my husband and I looked at each other, and just smiled lol. In the back of our minds we knew we could not afford it but it just felt good to see something that could potentially be ours if we SET GOALS AND ONE DAY GO FOR SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL! We walked out and didn’t think nothing of it and wasn’t going to put an offer.

Well I called one of my friends who had purchased a home and these were their (her and her husband) words, GET WHAT YOU WANT AND PRAY ABOUT IT IF ITS OUT OF YOUR BUDGET, BUT DO NOT LIMIT GOD!

So both my husband and I talked about it and I said let’s put in an offer that is close to our budget. He said you think they gone come down on the price. I said, I do not know but it’s worth the try. Before I called the realtor, I got on my knees and I said ok God I’m gone need you to pull a couple of strings and mend these people hearts to be willing to come down on that price. I was very specific in that prayer.

I called the realtor and guess what she said, THEY NOT GONE DO THOSE NUMBERS, I CAN TELL YOU THAT NOW! I said ok well let’s just see. I said you want me to present it or you gone do it. She was so iffy and said we need another number because I’m pretty sure they are not going to accept that price. I said, I tell you what let’s present that price and ask them to put the closing cost. She said have you lost your mind! I said kinda! Lol I said I can’t limit God and what he can do. I know what I prayed about, so yeah present that for us. She called back the next day, GIRL THOSE PEOPLE ACCEPTED THAT OFFER AND ADDED AN EXTRA $500. 💃🏽🙌🏽💃🏽🙌🏽 I SAID YOU BETTER COME THROUGH GOD! Heart beating fast but just smiling because GOD WAS IN THIS PROCESS AND I FELT GOOD ABOUT IT! PEACE WAS THERE. Everything fell right in place! God made it to where I wasn’t afraid to ASK FOR SOMETHING SO BIG AND OUT OF REACH! He showed how faithful he is and how AMAZING HE IS!! He told me GET OUT OF MY WAY AND STOP LIMITING ME!

God showed up and OUT on last Friday when we received the keys! God made it where they issued us a check at closing. DONT KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED 🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏽🤷🏽‍♀️! So that Lil $1000 was well worth losing in that process because what he did in the end WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT!

Do not limit GOD!!!!!!!!!!! That is my new motto!!

This will not just happen for me because I’m not that special. It happens to anyone who isn’t afraid to trust God!! I give him all the glory!!! He is beyond amazing and will always HAVE OUR BACKS!!

Dream bigger than BIG! And know THINGS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU JUST BELIEVE AND TRUST IN GOD!

Those bottom homes are homes I stayed in when I was a child! The top is what my husband and I purchased with God guiding every step of the way!

Im just a girl from a small town that has BIG DREAMS!!!! Dream SO BIG THAT IT SCARES YOU!!! It’s not where you come from that makes you who you are, ITS WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND THE PROCESSES THAT YOU GO THROUGH THAT MAKES YOU THE PERSON YOU ARE!!!! Be blessed 😘😘
