I have a friend who has been struggling from homelessness for over two years.
Not the kind of homeliness that you are probably picturing…
Dirty with a shopping cart sleeping under a bridge.
No, this is the kind of homeliness that practically goes unnoticed in society.
One of a hard working mother who just cannot seem to save up enough to pay a deposit so she moves her and her kids from friend’s to friend’s house.
But on this faithful Sunday, our Pastor calls a prophecy.
He says that he doesn’t know who he is talking to but the person who has been struggling for two years and still has been faithful to God, that person’s season of hardship is over.
On that very Monday, she gets notice from her social worker that they can pay her first month’s rent and deposit.
That very day she calls landlords and finds one just down the street from me who is aware of and takes that type of payment.
By the evening, we have viewed the apartment and she has completed the application.
By that Tuesday evening, he has confirmed her income and approved her for the apartment.
By that Wednesday, social services has written a promissary note and she has keys!!!
For the first time in Years!!
But is God done?
On Thursday, the water is on.
But there is a problem of an overdue electric bill.
And do you think that a $600 power bill can stop my God.
Because God put it on the heart of just one of the dozen of customer service workers at dom.com to turn on her power if she can pay just $200 of that bill.
And here’s the kicker…the power was on even before she made the payment.
Yep, on Thursday night, she and her three daughters spent their very first night in the comfort and security of their own home!!
On Saturday, with the help of an Explorer, Expedition, and a pickup truck, her furniture was moved in her new home and out of storage.
A new home in one week.
From one Sunday to the next, you went from homeless to being a tenant in good standing.
You can’t tell me there is no God and that my God ain’t good!!!
