Learning curve

Well, it has been another crazy day, and it is now 'late' in the day and I got nothin'. So, I thought I'd just post my thoughts on my attempts to get an investment thing going. I've done one investment property - about a year ago - and God blessed that endeavor. But since it looked like I was going to be deployed with the National Guard I opted to not continue on that course. Well, now I am not getting deployed and I am trying to get back into it. My first train of thought was to look into buying a rental property but it appears that the financing is going to keep me out of that market. I even looked into possibly getting a H.U.D. rental, but they do not pay enough for me to make money in my current home market. So I am back at looking at houses to possibly flip. I have not ruled out trying a rental property, but I will need to clear between $200 and $300 a month in order to ensure I can fix things if something breaks. Well, I am still going to meet with the Real Estate agent I have set up for this afternoon. Maybe she will have ideas. Verse for today: Luke 12:8-21 esv Acknowledge Christ Before Men “And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God, but the one who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” The Parable of the Rich Fool Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”

I am sure if you pray about it you will hear Him and know what direction you are supposed to take. If you have prayed about getting out of the gaurd and know this is what He has planned for you. He will provide your way out!

Praying,
