remember that parable Jesus told about the widow who gave everything even when she had nothing? this morning at base worship we had a time of giving. the needs were presented. slowly, but steadily people started shouting out their need whether it be $500 or $5000. then we waited. we waited to see God move in an impossible way among fifty or so rag-tag ywamers with next to no money. a wave people began to move...and minute after minute the needs written on the white board were wiped away. in less than fifteen minutes over $31,000 exchanged hands. i guess miracles still happen. praise jehovah jira.
"test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." - Mal 3:10
i once heard story about a man who made a few bad investments and before he knew it over $20,ooo of debt had piled up. this man later went to his pastor for some biblically sound financial advice and this what the pastor said, " you have dug yourself into quite a hole thats for sure, i guess your just gonna have to give your way out of it." funny thought.
