Hitherto...

I'm discussing something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) that you probably have not heard me talk about. 

At least, not for a very long time. Well, at least for more than three and a half (3 1/2) years, since I couldn't do my work.

I'm referring to my work as a Realtor.

That's right.  Although I did try a couple of times over that past time, I found I could not do the work, due to being too weak after having all those surgeries.

Weak?  Yes.

So weak that even today, I cannot lift my sign frames without causing me extreme pain.  And, it is rather dangerous for me to even try to lift them, at this time.

Even so, my friend, A and I had discussed something she wanted done this year.

At first, I wasn't sure if I could help, A.  But, after thinking about it, and praying, I realized I could help her.

What did she want done?

A wanted me to list her condominium apartment for sale.  She was hoping to make a move that would be positive to her.

I realized I didn't need to lift any sign frames.  Nor, did I have to go up and down full staircases, over and over again.

Yes, going up and down, down and up again, on full staircases wouldn't yet be easy for me, due to the weakness I still have.

But, God let me know it would be okay for me to help, A.  So, I did.

On Friday, March 4th, I met with my friend, A.  

We completed the paperwork.  Later, I faxed the listing to my broker.  And, to the real estate board.

Knowing it would not be added onto our MLS system until some time on the coming Monday, I prayed.  And, prayed.  And, prayed.

I prayed that God would help me do what A needed done. 

I also prayed and asked Him to provide multiple offers on A's condo unit.  And, I asked him if He would make it sell quickly.  Not just for the price requested.  But, also for more than the listing price.

On Monday, March 7th I realized the listing came early onto the MLS system.

We had seven (7) showings that day.  Plus, there were other Realtors who wanted to show the unit, the following day.

There was a couple Realtors who could not process an offer that day, even though we were having three (3) offers presented late that evening.

Yes, God answered my prayer. 

Not just with the quick showings and multiple offer situation.  But, He also provided so that A's condo unit sold for more than the list price.

I praised God!  Hallelujah!

I felt truly joyful.  And, so did my friend, A!

Thinking of this, brought to mind, John 16:24, "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full."

Yes, we had not asked anything of Him, regarding that situation, previously.  But, knowing I prayed, and asked of Him, my joy was full.  After all, we received what I had actually prayed for, for my friend, A.

Again, I need to say, thank you, Lord! 

I thank You, for helping my friend, A.  We're both thankful that You provided for her.

I thank You, for answering my prayer request.  The request I mentioned earlier, that no one knew I had prayed for... except our Lord.

I praise You, Lord!  And, will always be thankful. 

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
