An abundance of situations have come to shake my foundation but I have managed to keep the faith & a smile on my face.
Well, one day last week I’d had Enough! My apartment complex has been sold & all the tenants have to move before the their lease is up. I’ve been searching for a place for my family for months. 99% of the places I contacted I got “I’m sorry, we just rented that house”, “That home is no longer available”, or they want you to have A1 credit to RENT, not buy!
The search was stressing me out so bad that I couldn’t concentrate at work, on my workout, and I wasn’t getting any sleep. I told my beautiful, caring, & sweetest wife ever, that I couldn’t do it anymore. I was so frustrated I started catching an attitude with her & that’s something we don’t do. In our relationship, we talk to each other with respect & love!
Ok that’s it God, I’m mad now! Lord I’ve been going thr0ugh hell trying to find a place to live & I’m done! I don’t bother you by asking for a new Lexus or 1 million dollars. I give, give, give & now it’s my turn to receive! Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Jacob 32:22-31 talks about Jacob wrestling with God (some versions say it was the Gabriel the angel). In verse 26, Jacob was told to let him go, & Jacob replied “I will not let you go unless you bless me!” Just like Jacob, I refused to give up until God blessed me!
Not long after my prayer, my wife text me & said “baby I found one more house, if you don’t mind calling to see if it’s available & go look at it.” I said ok. I went by looked at, liked it, it was actually available, we put in our application & were approved! The house meets ALL our needs & a few wants too!
God wants to bless us! He said so in John 10:10 “I come that you may have life, & have it abundantly”! If you invest in something, go to work every day, or let someone borrow money, you expect something in return. If you’re in a relationship where you give 110% & your significant other only gives 10%, that’s not a smart investment.
You have to stand firm & demand your blessing! Speak it into the universe what you need! The Law of Attraction is true. See, I was speaking my needs but I was speaking it to people. I had everyone helping me find a home and it wasn’t working because I thought the Law of Attraction meant telling you what I needed and you knowing someone who knows someone who knows her and she can fix my problem. That’s not faith, that’s luck. I should have been saying it with confidence and faith in God not in luck.
If you give it, if you speak it, you’ll receive it! ~MelodyLeann

Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.
