I deal in real estate. I have grown up loving land and the buildings that inhibit it. My career is heavily vested in it and GOD has blessed me so.
I was having this moment of heaviness in my heart. I get that for no reason and those are the times that I cry the loudest to JESUS. That is when all I can muster up is a groan, yet it is the time when I am needing and desiring HIS presence the most. As difficult as it can be - there is beauty in its vulnerability.
It was at that moment when I heard or felt the SPIRIT lay on my heart that "I am just renting space here in this world" and that my final home, the one that will be mine will be when I am with JESUS. When I start to lose sight of my wonderful, merciful, and awesome GOD- because I am renting in this place- I must remember that I am vested in the best real estate around... With each praise, prayer, repentance and worship; my FATHER helps me make it through noisy neighbors, leaky pipes, low on rent days in this temporary house I am in.
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
