I came to realize that trying to sell by owner in this market, in Michigan, a state going though severe economic problems just wasn't gonna cut it. However listing with an agent meant losing a good little chunk of money. so even though it seems like a no brain-er, it was a big deal to come to the decision to do it.
However the Lord lead me to decide to call my financial advisor to confer with him prior to making my final decision, mainly to see if his opinion of Michigan's state of affairs where the same as mine. (it was)
The funny thing is,I thought I was going in for merely financial advise but what I got was ministry from a fellow Christian!
As we know the Lord does use people to accomplish His work
And He used Kevin to confirm some things to me and advance the path to my fulltiming adventure and my future
We are all fearfully and wonderfully made to be "us"
And the Lord's will for us is to live accordingly to the "us" He created, using our gifts and talents and living in such a way that fulfills our souls and glorifies Him.
I know that, that life is not here but I will find it out there, on the road. And some day, I will come upon a spot and know, this is it, this is where I am supposed to be and I'll put down roots.
And it will be good.
A place of secure dwelling, and peaceful habitation.
And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
The Lord is so good!
So onward....and if the Lord puts a dream in your heart, pursue it with passion! Don't let anyone rob you of it, realize there will be roadblocks and set backs along the way but don't give up. Where the Lord leads, He feeds.
