After adding the numbers and checking them twice, my husband and I concluded that there was not enough money for all of the bills this month. We had both missed a few hours at work due to illness so we were expecting to be a little short, just not that much! We discussed which bill would not get to be paid and we finally chose insurance. We prayed about it and, although it was a little scary, we just knew that we could trust God. We had been in tight financial spots before, but God always met our need.
The next day we got a phone call from someone who saw an old post of some items we had tried to sell. The notice was so old that we had actually forgotten about it. The man asked if we still have one particular item for sale and we said yes. He came over that night and bought it, paying twice as much as what we had originally paid for it. After he left, we had enough money to pay our insurance and fill up our gas tanks, with a little left over for the next month. More than that, it overflowed our “faith” tank!
“Faith is not faith until it is all you’re holding on to!”
True Stories of Faith are based on actual events that have happened to people all over the world. Each story recalls a time or episode where faith in God was restored or encouraged through difficult time. Sometimes the names are changed because the significance is not always about to whom the events happened. The significance is about God’s faithfulness and love.
