Me and My House will Serve the LORD

After about a year of working on things, Tim and I decided that we would love to have a home of our own. We prayed that God would some how work a way for us to move into our very own home. We then started to look for a home of our own. We looked at several homes and just couldn't find what we were looking for. We went to the bank to see just what we could afford, thinking that if we had more money we could look at larger homes that wouldn't need immediate repairs. This is when we found that the bank wouldn't lend us any amount of money. This was very devastating because we knew that God was telling us that we were to move and continue on with his plan for our lives. This is when we decided to once more go and seek a home. We ended up at a sub division where you built your home brand new. We knew it was a long shot with our poor credit and previous turn down by the bank. We applied for credit for a new home and WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!! God BLESSED us with a home, not just a home, but a brand new home, one we never could have dreamed of. One that we didn't deserve, one that God had meant for us all along. It took about 6 months from start to finish, for all the paperwork, picking of colors and construction before we could move in. To us, this small 3 bedroom 1200 sq ft home was a mansion!!! GOD BLESSES those who listen and follow his will...
