Friday #LALBride “So Tired, I was almost Giving Up”

Hello dear Brides!!! I am so thankful for the opportunity of sharing with you the awesomeness of the Lord my Beloved HH. Today I want to share about a huge blessing that He gave me and about the Journey He led me until I received it. I hope that wherever you are and whatever your situation maybe you feel encouraged by His greatness, grace, love, and mercy in my life.

If you are being fed and encouraged daily by RMI, you may remember that I came here as many of you, when I faced a huge crisis in my marriage, unfortunately, the crisis led to a divorce, and I believe that’s when I lost everything: my family, house, and money, was when I found the most important and the great treasure of my life. The change, the suffering, the trials, the pains, none of them were easy or light, but in the middle of it was when I had the best moments of knowing Him. It may sound confusing for you who are now suffering as I were one day, but soon you will also understand and be grateful for all of it.

I was stripped of everything that I hold dear to me, I was dirty and He cleaned me, He forgave me, showed me His ways His word and His love, a love that until today I can’t totally understand, but I know that exists and it’s ETERNAL. He changed me, my heart, and He continues to work in me. He showed me what Love is, and that He is love.

My Journey was full of ups and downs, uncertainty, doubts, fear, but during all these times, we combated all of it together by revealing His truth. That what I saw was different from what He sees, and I should walk by faith in Him and His word. I’m still in this Journey and it I will continue walking until the day I see Him face to face.

For a year or more, I lived in people’s houses, people that He used to help me and supply for all my needs, when I lost my family, He gave me a big one, when I didn’t have any friends, He chosen the best ones, same minded friends that love Him with all their heart, when I didn’t have a job, He gave me a wonderful job that brings Glory and Honor to Him, He took me on a tour to show me the Abundant Life  that He has for me, He gave me a sister and close friend. He took us as His Brides around the world shining His light in our faces and making us smile at the future. And now after all this time, He gave me a house!!! PTL Yes, a house where I can finally take my clothes from my suitcases :)))

The search for the house was a little bit tiring, and I know that if we’re not walking with Him and listen to Him, we can rush and do foolish things because we don’t want to wait!! I confess that I was anxious and impatient, but he was patient and make me wait for more until I found the house that I believe He chose for us. I was already tired of the search, or the prices were too high, or the house was too old, or it was far away, or without furniture. As you can see, I wanted all of it in one only house, and everyone told me how impossible it was for me to find this house and every time I heard it, in my heart and mind I was replying: with God all things are possible!!!

We received a phone call from one realtor to see a house, and on the way there I remember feeling so tired, I was almost giving up. I was with my friend and her husband who is Turkish and they were helping me, again another provision from Him, to put them in my life. On the way, my friend’s husband found another realtor and decided to ask. He took some time there, and when he left he was with the realtor of a house that apparently was according to what I was searching for! I was just thinking, I wish it was a new building and close to where we are because I couldn’t walk more, and in just two minutes I had a view of the Brand new Building!! I kept thinking, Lord may it be furnished and have a nice kitchen, since a love to cook;) and everything that I may need. I entered alone with my friend, and her husband stayed out talking to the realtor. When I saw the apartment, I really fell in love!!! It was everything I wanted and much more!!! But there was still another thing to decide and it was the price. It was a little bit more than I was willing to pay, and that’s when my friend and her husband gave praises about me to the realtor, who decided to lower the price to the price I had in mind!!!!

On the meeting with the landowner, the realtor shared that he saw something different in me and didn’t know how but he trusted me!!!! I was shocked, but of course, inside I was screaming with joy for what my HH was doing!!! The next time I write you a report I will be already in my new house!!!!

It was not an easy journey but a necessary one! I complained, I cried but He comforted me all the time, I had many losses, but I gained EVERYTHING. When others gave me worldly advice to make my life easy, I decide to keep His promises and live His way, and today I can reap His blessings. Brides, He is worth it ALL.
