So God has been doing something really amazing in Grace’s and my life and I just have to share it! As Pastor How preached at the start of 2016 that this is the year where our dreams will come to pass! True enough, Grace and myself found an apartment of our dream and prayers and placed our offer! God is so amazing that He did not only answer our prayer, He did exceedingly abundantly above what we can ever think or imagine!
Our prayer list for our new home:
– In Marine Crescent/Drive, no Terrace
– Within our budget
– High floor, BUT has to be even number stories/multiples of 5
(I just really don’t like the other numbers hahahaha)
– An apartment with privacy
– Good & clean neighbours
– Minimal/no cash outflow during our purchase, using mainly CPF
– Near a good primary school
What God did:
– In Marine Crescent/Drive, no Terrace ✓
– Within our budget ✓
– High floor ✓
– An apartment with privacy ✓
(There are only 4 units on our level!)
– Good & clean neighbours ✓
(No neighbours have excessive plants outside, our direct neighbour is seldom in SG, and the other 2 neighbours are very quiet – according to current owners)
– Minimal/no cash outflow during our purchase, using mainly CPF ✓
(People usually need to pay an upfront $5000.00 upon purchasing a house, but we only needed to give $2000.00 and everything else will be paid using CPF. PLUS just before the purchase was made, the government increased resale first-timer grants from $40,000 for near parents to $50,000 – Down payments fully paid for!)
– Near a good primary school ✓
(Tao Nan Pri, Ngee Ann Pri, CHIJ Katong Convnent) – God blessed us with not just 1 but 3 good primary schools to choose from!
Just recently, we noticed that works are being done just opposite our house, and to our surprise it is the future marine parade/terrace MRT station! God is just so amazing! Like what Pastor How preached before as well, when the blessing of God comes, it comes suddenly and immediately! Grace and I are just so blown away with this that God has blessed us with! Truly as we build God’s house, He is faithful and builds our house.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” – Matt 6:33
We have been praying and hoping for a house for over 3 years, since before our marriage and now our dream is finally coming to pass! Estimated moving in date is in July 2016 (Our 2nd year anniversary) Man! Talk about the perfect time and way to spend it!
