Business slow?

Real Estate Agent with Clearpoint REALTORS

I know not everyone is a Christian and this post is not to offend.  That being said, I'm sure there are Realtors like myself who do the mailings and the little things that are planting seeds.  I truly give my real estate career to God and trust in his timing.  Over the past few years (tough going), I have seen him move in just the right time.

Two years in a row I was down to less than $1,000 in the bank in December and wondering how Santa was going to make it to my house (I have 5 kids).  Sure enough, as if out of nowhere, I had a flurry of activity and several commissions drop into my lap.  Luck? Coincidence?  I prefer to thing it was God following through on his promise "Seek ye first the kingdom of God".

It is now February and my bank account is slowly dropping.  I still have enough to carry me for 6 months or more (2 closings in December!).  I have been steadily doing my marketing, mailouts, etc...  I have faith that the Lord will take care of my business.  I actually pray that he brings people into my sphere that I can help.

Again, I know not everyone adheres to this view, but for those who do, hold tight, give your business to him and watch him work!


Yours in Christ!

Michael, came across your post while scanning our Memphis area realtor's post. I'm sure God has answered your prayers, you just may have to look beyond the hill in front of you to see the great plans He has for you.
