Making Change

I think the best part of my job is that I get to see lives changed.   If there is anything better, it is seeing people responding to teaching or leadership in such a way where God is using them to change lives.

After I taught on finding financial margin today (and sharing an example about our upcoming trip to Africa) talked to three people back to back to back right after the 3rd service. 

First was a guy in the audience who happens to know the missionaries we are visiting in Africa and he was so pumped that we someone was going to visit and encourage them.  He made a very, very generous financial pledge to make our trip possible.

Second, I spoke with a lady.  I don’t know her personally, but I see her quite often and know she is faithfult o our church.  I had just encouraged people who were struggling financially to connect with the program we offer called Financial Peace University. It costs $100 to go through.  She asked if she could write a check for $100 to pay for someone who absolutely could not afford to go through it, and she talked about how she had once been in a similarly tough spot and wanted people to find the same freedom she had through God’s principles about money.

Third, I stopped and prayed with a couple who are both out of work and looking for employment.  The said they really also knew they needed to do Financial Peace University, but had absolutely zero money for it.  (Coincidence?  I think not.)  The previous lady had written out a check on the spot and I could guarantee this couple a spot at FPU.

I always smile when I see God work so obviously.

  1. WOW! That is so cool! There is nothing better than stories that demonstrate God’s active working in our day to day lives…especially when He is meeting needs BEFORE we even ask!

  2. How great is that!!!! I’m wittnessing to a young gal I work with and shared the message. She’s trying to get her credit cards paid off and I know this message will help her. I gave her a CD and she promised me she would listen to it.
