The Power of Prayer!

I know that I have been praying for sometime now and Mom and her "Prayer Team" (as she calls them) have been praying that my house rents out fast and that everything will work out with my new apt.
WELL!!!!! I went to my new apartment office on Saturday to finalize our plans b/c there is a lady that wants to move in on the 10th so I wanted to tell the guy at the apartment that I want to go with the bigger apartment! While I'm there he tells me that they are having a move-in special and the first month is only $99! WOW!!! SO instead of having to pay close to $1,300 I now only have to pay $630.25!! Thank you GOD!!!
Well I call my landlord while I'm at the apartment to make sure that the lady still wants the house so I don't go through all of this mess with the guy in the office for nothing! My landlord tells me not only does the lady REALLY want the house but now she wants to move in on the 5th!!!! I was like ummm ok sure why not!? AHHHHH that is only a week away! (now its only 4 days away!)
So needless to say the Lord really answered my prayers and then some!!! I want to thank everyone that has prayed for me during this time!

Psalm 50:15
"Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."

Isaiah 41:10
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Matthew 11:28
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

With all that said I have two final verse that have become kind of the guiding verses for my life...
The first verse helps me deal with the worry gene I inherited from my wonderful Father and Oma
Matthew 6:34
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

And the second verse helps me with my struggle with being patient...
Romans 8:25
"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently."

In closing Thank God and Praise Him in all that you do and say!

P.S. anyone that wants to help pack or move
