I am kicking my real estate business in higher gears. I am re-organizing my business plan now. completely re-writing it. Do you know that God has shown me how I can work for Him in His kingdom and for His glory through my real estate business? It's such a delight to know that when I truly ask for His will and His purpose, He shows me the way. Last night I was reading the bible at random (that's my style and I ask Him to speak to me through His word).... He pointed me to Matthew 7:7 - 11:
7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; those who seek find; and to those who knock, the door will be opened. 9 "Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
It seems so perfectly clear in my mind. That's the model of my business and many that I've spoken with think that I'm going to be the only person like that. Glory not on me, but for the Lord. I really believe that money can be the by-product when we seek Him first.
I ask that when you think of me, pray for me. Please pray that I will only seek His will and give me courage and strength to build this one-of-a kind business. May God open my hearts and let others see the love of our dear Christ Jesus through my servanthood attitude.
My mission is clear: to share Christ's love with all I encounter: real estate or not. But in this season, I've been called to enter the Real estate mission field. I'm not here to convert anyone. I'm just here to love.
