Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” Genesis 22:1-2
You know God tests us? My posts on The King of Hearts are about that. Me moving to Nashville was a test, not to say I will never move there- 'cause you never know with God, that's why walking with Him is so exciting and NOT boring! I was really gona go! I went to look at apartments and everything! I didn't get into the one I wanted. And honestly? I was afraid! I got married when I was 19! I never in my entire life have been alone ( although I have always felt alone) and on my own! I was preparing to go but from experience I know God also leads by opening and closing doors and I was rejected from these apartments! When I think about it now? I laugh! The apartment rent was like 1/3 of what this house payment is, the apartment wasn't even as big as 1 floor of this house- the kitchen is the size of my huge unfinished bathroom but I was totally OK with that. So I was like, "I'm rejected, now what Lord?" "Find another apartment, the next day I was reading my Bible and I was in Jeremiah 42:
If you will remain in this land, then I will build you up and not pull you down, and I will plant you and not pull you up; Jeremiah 42:10 Wow!
He said He would "build me up" like a house, "The Seven Story House" My Bible study is starting at my house on August 31st! Then He said He would "plant me" like a tree! My book The Seven Story Tree is now available on Amazon!
So because of all this and other things, I stayed. My legal adviser even said the judge does consider why the child says, I want to live with....My baby wants to live with me, she said she said the other cause she was mad- not gona fly with the judge! Last night after church we went to Books A Million and I bought her a bunch of books, one of which was a Bible and we got coffee (I got coffee she got a hot cocoa frappe) we got this ridiculously sweet peanut butter chocolate thing and it was fun and I said I need to start selling some Mary Kay fast! lol But God is GOOD people and He leads me!
