Hey guys! It’s been a little while since I have updated you on my tithing report. Let me just start by saying, GOD IS SO GOOD! I have been tithing now since the first of the year, and at first I did it because I thought I was supposed to. Now, I can’t wait to write that check for the offertory. I have been tithing the last month when it hurt the most. AND IT HURT BAD!
When your tithe check is more than you end up with to live off for the week..It’s tough!
But faithfully I gave, because I made a promise that I would.
You guys may or may not know, that I have had a house on the market now for a year. Since divorce struck, making a mortgage payment has been hard on a single income, but I was managing (somewhat). I have been praying my heart out that the house would sell, and that single thing would free me financially from the burden of living paycheck to paycheck.
This morning I was in my car on the way to work, worshiping God. I love that Mary Mary Song, and Mandisa song:
Well here I am, broke as a slick nickel, praising God in my car on the way to work. Did I mention I had just gotten paid the day before and had 100.00 to my name for a week and a half? Mind you.. I had written my tithe check and wasn’t backing out.
This evening I received a call………………… My house has a buyer! A cash buyer! And the contract is signed as of today!
CAN WE SAY:
“Get these shackles off my feet so I can dance….”
Whoooooo hoooo! My God Rocks!
I plan on spending of the remainder of the evening basking in the good news and dancing.
Shackles Song <—- For your enjoyment 😉
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. 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. (NIV)
