Testimony Time



1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Matthew 9:8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.


Our lives are surely in God’s hands. He has been there for us ever since we committed our lives to Him. You may have read about our moving from New Mexico in 2007, but if you haven’t – check out my Blog Archives on http://victoriapoller.com (see: Poller’s Christmas 12/25/07; “ToTo Where Are We?”, Nov. 8, 2007; “What Tropical Storm?”, Aug. 2008; I Believe the Report of My Lord, Standing on the Promises of God & Wellness Update, June 2008; and Relocation Update, July 2008).

Now let’s see what the Lord has done recently for the Poller household.

The house we owned in New Mexico has SOLD. The new owners are Christians and they knew Van from refereeing basketball. They also attend the church that we were members of and they are true believers who have shown their faith.

Since we left NM in Oct. of 2007, and the world fell into a Recession; the house was on the market. We had to pay for two households; New Mexico and Florida. The expenses included: Mortgage, rent, storage at two facilities, utilities, lawn care, cell phones, food (we eat out a lot because of the limited space in our RV {27 ft. of space for four people and a dog}, laundry, supplies, gas, Drs. Co-pays, optometrist (military doesn’t cover as much as it use to), and there are probably more – and yet we continued to tithe and give offerings. I believe we found favor with God because of our faithfulness.

The house in NM fell into PRE-FORCLOSURE status after another couple had reneged on their “Lease Option Purchase”. They did some nice renovations, but did not pay the mortgage and it’s difficult to recover from months of missed payments. We did not accept the Foreclosure letter. The battle was on. You know how the Word states that the battle is the Lords (I Samuel 17), but people expect God to do all the work, nevertheless you’ve got to do your part in the battle just as David did. We prayed, came into agreement, and did what we physically and mentally had to do.

Anyhow, after killing many trees in paperwork and negotiations with many people – long distance; the new owners are moved in. We asked God for a miracle (on the outside it looked bad), and that’s what we got. But it did take some time. There was no ‘magic wand’.

There is a Part II to our relocation and that consists of a new home here in Florida. God always has better things for His people and those of you who know us know that He gave us the desires of our hearts.

Stay tuned for Part II, and if anyone has questions or needs some more encouragement, then contact me on my website or email me. Just know that God is faithful if we only believe and wait on Him.

I am glad things are better for you. Sometimes God places items in our path to use and we dismiss them.
