We keep hearing stories of how God is moving in the hearts of His People. Last night a man shared this story with me and gave me permission to share it with you. His story went something like this….
“Sunday morning, while in the worship service, I was praying and asking God to show me how to give to the Southside offering. I lost my job earlier this year and I’m struggling to just “get by” so I really don’t have any money to give. I thought about a musical instrument I’ve been trying to sell for the last few months. So, I prayed: “O.K. Lord. If You will move someone to buy this instrument, I will give the entire amount to the offering. And, while You’re at it, if You will give me a job, I will be able to give more to the work of Your Kingdom!”
Later in the day, I got an email from someone wanting to buy the instrument. When I looked at the time stamped on the email, it was sent at the exact time I was praying in the worship service. The man came to my house Monday night and bought it and I am giving the whole amount to God!
By the way, I also got a call on Monday morning from my old boss…offering me a job. I start to back to work…tomorrow!”
What’s your story? Have you prayed? Have you asked God to show you how you can be a part of what’s happening on the Southside?
