God revealed some very interesting things to me today…. about myself. LOL Its funny… only God to explain and give me examples in the way he does.
My daughter and I met today with our family realtor to look at 3 homes. My daughter and mom both have an VISION to see a tore down, jacked up inside and out home…………… beautiful.
When I go into a home, * and we go quite often* it has to be nice and pretty for me to like it. In other words…. “move in ready”. I get instantly turned off by homes that has been demolished, and need work. I’m really NOT a good person to take with you when buying a home. When I feel weak floors, see stained carpets, spooky basements, cob web closets, broken windows, nasty walls, sinks and bathtubs, chip tiles, I just CANT! I have absolutely no vision to see past these types of interior issues. You can find me half way through the tour looking scared in a corner, and ready to GO!!! LOL
This one place we saw today, people were still living there, that made it even worst for my vision, because ALL OF THEIR THINGS were in the house. I can’t mentality take out their things to add mines. I don’t know why I can’t see past this. My daughter was saying… “and we can take this out and add that”. “we can gut all this out, then we can knock this wall out”. I’m standing there saying to myself… guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurl… lets get out of here!!! LOL My mom and daughter can draw…. I can’t. They can pick out furniture to match the carpet, tile for the floors, certain types of sinks for the bathroom…… and poor me just standing there like…. ” God why can’t I see this type of vision?
Just then…. he took me there. He told me that it was okay. Everybody can’t have the same vision… its okay he said.
He reminded me how I can see the beauty and the restoration in a person who is homeless, someone beaten, abused, raped,and abandon. I can see a glorious life for them once they get the help they need. Some people feel that there is NO HOPE for these people. I don’t see it that way. He ask me… how many times have someone told you, “you give compliments to everybody”!!!! A lot I answered. He said that’s because you can see the beauty in people. You have the gift to see past the pain. You love people, you can see the best in them, you can see beyond their current situation. And I’m standing there like WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! In my mind…. I’m thinking that everyone should be able to see the beauty in others…… GOD SAID…but they don’t.
So when I walked around these houses today with my face sorta twisted, he said …. just because YOU can’t see the beauty in these homes, DOESNT MEAN THAT IT CANT BE DONE…
I JUST LOVE GOD!!! I JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM!!!
Where works of the flesh exists, there is NO joy
