He Did It!

(Parents of Little Ones: Sing to the Tune of "We Did It" from Dora the Explorer)

He led us to the land and we bought it right away.
Oh He did it! He did it! He did it! Yay!
He provided even more and we didn't have to pay.
Oh He did it! He did it! He did it! Yay!
Now there's money in the bank and there's only Him to thank!
Oh He did it! He did it! He did it! Yay!

Our land "swap" is finally over! Our church closed on our new property yesterday, after what seems an eternity! So we now own ?? acres, completely debt-free, and got a nice amount of money in the bank account, too.

Praise you Lord, for you are faithful. You led us through a time of patience, but as always You were the Provider of all we need. I pray now Lord that we will move ahead according to Your agenda and not our own. Equip us to do Your works, and bring glory to your Holy Name!! Amen!!


  1. That's great! The more I study God's word about debt free living the more I see that it is NOT His will for us to be in debt to anyone - and I know that applies to churches also! Way to go on being a debt free church! Your ministry will be so effective since you don't have to pay off a mortgage!

  2. Well, we are currently debt-free, but once we start building an actual permanent church building, the debt will be back. It just won't be as big as the debt WOULD have been. But we can enjoy it for now!

  3. Ok, this is sad. I don't even watch Dora and I caught on to the tune really quickly!! Shows just how much commercials stick in your head!

    Anyway, congrats on the debt free thing! It is a wonderful feeling!

    Our congregation just bought some land as well. It has been a hard transition because so many people have worshiped in that building for so many years, but it's not the building that matters... it's the church, the people.

    Anyway, didn't mean to go off on a tangent! Congrats!!! :)


So, what do you have to say?
