Do you expect to live a happy, fulfilled life? or Do you live each day trying to make it through, expecting things to go wrong?
Expectations are very powerful. When you expect your life to be filled with strife, unhappiness and financial hardships, then I guarantee that this is what you will manifest.
On the other hand, if you expect good things to happen to you, stay positive and trust in your higher power to set you up for success, it will happen.
I am living proof of this. When I look at where I am in my life, I am amazed. I have a loving marriage, wonderful family, beautiful home and terrific career. I wake up every day excited because I can’t wait to see what wonderful things are in store me. I expect great things to happen and they usually do.
Now, I am not saying that there won’t be hard times because there will. I am simply saying that if you weather the storm, stay positive and know that your higher power is going to bring you out of it better off, than it is easier to stay in faith.
When I got married a few years ago, my husband and I purchased a new home. The housing market was in a downturn so we got the house at a great price. I had previously purchased a house prior to meeting my husband so I was tasked with selling it in a buyer’s market. Unfortunately, I was not having any luck. A real estate agent contacted me about a doing a lease purchase for their client and we struck a deal.
After 2 years, the tenants decided not to purchase the home and there was some damage to the house. I was worried about finding a new tenant and coming up with the money for repairs. I asked God (my higher power) to guide the situation and help me find the perfect person for this house and then I let it go. I put an ad in Craigslist for a renter and then set up appointments to show the home.
My family and I went over to begin the arduous chore of cleaning the house and doing basic repairs. While there, a man came over and asked to speak with me. He said he owned the funeral home behind my house, saw it being vacated and wanted to rent it. I was elated to find someone so quickly.
He came back to me a few days later and asked if I would be willing to sell my house. I told him that I had originally planned on keeping it as a rental property but would consider selling it at the right price with the right terms. He agreed to everything and 40 days later, I sold my house at asking price, without realtor commissions, as is/no repairs and without paying closing costs.
By expecting that God would take care of it and bring the right person to me, I got the perfect person for my house. Who else would want to live behind a funeral home but a funeral home Director! LOL
