I know I took a long break. Life has been good but full of ups and downs. I have been working hard but I haven’t forgotten about you all.
I finally let go!
I have been dealing with some issues concerning my house in Texas. I no longer live in Texas, I live in Georgia so I rented my house out. I wanted to be a blessing. My former tenets (two young couples) started a fire in the house and there was smoke damage. I was unable to put anybody else in the house until all repairs were completed. After the repairs were completed I got back in touch with my property manager to see if he would put someone else in the house. He dragged his feet. Every person that was interested, he turned them down. He was very passive about renting my house out, meanwhile he kept asking about selling my house. I didn’t pay attention until one day I voiced to him that I was thinking about selling it. He immediately jumped on it and recommended some real estate agents to me. I was upset but I was desperate at this point to get rid of the house.
Mid year of 2017, I started declaring myself debt free not realizing all that would take place in order for this declaration to manifest in the natural. I was paying rent for my apartment and my house, while experiencing other tests at the same time.
I put the house up for sell and it seemed to be taking a while. I had cried out to God about it and even though I was believing Him for the selling of my house it wasn’t until 2 February that something in me changed drastically.
On 2 February 2018, I was driving and I made the decision right there. I told God I’m letting it go. I’m not paying it. I even told my mother “I’m letting the house go. I’m not paying the mortgage, I will allow it to be delinquent so I can do a deed in lieu. I’m not afraid of what will happen to my clearance or credit. My credit can be repaired. But I’m letting that house go.” I had such a peace and it was as if something lifted off of me and I was free. I even told a very close friend of mine. She didn’t agree but she prayed.
The VERY NEXT DAY, 3 February 2018, I received a call from my real estate agents saying “Hi Mrs. Bishop, we want you to know that we have received two offers on your home and we are ready to move forward on them. We are looking to do everything right away and close very soon”.
God did not waste any time once I released it to Him. Sometimes we are holding on to things and without realizing it, we’re not allowing God to work on that particular situation.
I’m currently in Texas now getting ready to close on the selling of my house a month later. God is faithful!
I FINALLY LET GO of the situation and God was there all along waiting for that moment so He could work it out!
Here are some scriptures to mediate on when challenges come and they seem to weigh heavy on you.
1 Peter 5:7* Psalm 55:22*** Matthew 11:28-30* Psalm 56:3* Psalm 121:1-2.
There are more scriptures you can study but I recommend meditating on these. I pray you are encouraged by my testimony to Trust God even the more every day!
