Seven Times he said, "Go Again"

Many of you know about my struggles these days with my family moving and I'm still stock here in Jersey with my House and without a Job that allows me to tougher with my family in MA. But today during my quiet time, the Lord give me a powerful word. A word that lifted my spirt and grow my faith!! and I want to share it with all of you... Hopefully these words are a blessing for you as it was for me today!

1 Ki 18:43 NKJ " Seven times he Said, 'Go again"
Elijah the prophet told King Ahad that drought in the land was over and the rains were coming. Then Elijah told his servant, "Go up now, look toward the sea'. So he went up and looked, and said, there is nothing. And seven times he said, 'Go again'. Then it came to pass the pass the seventh time, that he said, 'There is cloud, as small as a man's hand, rising out of the sea!' So he said, 'Go up, say to Ahab, prepare your chariot,and godown before the rain stop you'... in the meantime ... the sly became black... and there was a heavy rain' (vv 43-45). Notice, seven times Elijah said, "Get up and go again" what the Lord told was that we MOST persist! If we dont, we will miss what God wants us to have. Furthermore, if we dont recognize and celebrate small miracles "the size of man's hand", we will miss the bigger ones so essential to our future!
For me all these means, that even that open house are a nightmare a lots and lots of work...I will not complain, I will get this house ready every single time with all my love and all my heart..as if I'm preparing the house the future owner...My Small blessing, that even that the market is so slow, I have showing and people wanting to see my house! when others are not even getting that!! I Now the rain of the Lord will come with all his strength and with all his Blessings....The Buyer of this house will come and this house will sell SOON!


Cheers,
Jackie :)

Hi, Jackie, Open Houses are so stressful, but I have a small hint for you, that may help just a little in making your home feel "homey" when someone walks in: have some cinnamon simmering on the stove during the Open House. When I was in real estate (100 years ago), one buyer said he bought the house because, when he opened the pantry and smelled the cinnamon and other baking spices, he was transported to his grandmother's kitchen. What does it hurt to try it? Just don't forget about it and let it boil dry!!!

look for more!
