Hey there – I just received this message and thought it would be fun to share it with my readers.
I have really been enjoying these lessons. Your literature and info is very edifying and uplifting. You asked about people sharing their story of improved circumstances, so I thought I’d do my part…
Our family has really always been very blessed. Not that we’ve always done that great financially, but we have experienced great favor through our lives. This year has been an extremely difficult year in a number of ways. My husband is in new home sales and we all know what that’s been like in this recent economy. Thank goodness for previous good years and our building up our savings account! We’ve definitely needed it this year. Last year I began an online business trying to generate income and hopefully, eventually help get my husband out of this very stressful “job”. It’s been a great challenge and I’m learning SO very much, but not YET seeing the real fruit of my labors. (But it’s coming…I know it!)
Anyway, we REALLY were needing a break and to get away with our family, but we didn’t have a lot of money to do it. We have 3 kids (14, 15 and 20) We decided to visit our friends in Florida and take some time to do Disney. We knew that we could stay with our friends and they usually are able to get us passes to get into Disney FREE! Through various interventions and surprises, not only did they get us 3 days of passes with park hopping privileges to go to all 4 Disney parks, but they somehow were able to get us a huge suite at the Old Key West Disney Resort for 4 nights! FREE!! Our only expense was gas and food. Our suite even had a full kitchen. But that’s not all…
While visiting at our friend’s home one evening, they asked our son to sing and play his guitar. He is a gifted singer/songwriter and has a dream to record, travel, etc. He has a Christian band that is working on a demo, but he also has a solo project he’s working on. (He is 20 years old) The people there were blown away by his gift and anointing. They were speechless and in tears. (He is quite amazing if I do say so myself) They immediately said they wanted to fly him back in a couple of weeks to introduce him to their 5000 member congregation and pay his way to a Men’s Intervention weekend they are having. They called their pastor and he was very excited to meet him and have him come. Then there was a glitch because the airline tickets were anywhere from $400 to $700 and they weren’t going to be able to do that. We all said if it was supposed to happen, it would. My sister was then able to get him a ticket on stand-by for $150 round trip! But that’s not all…
This entire trip has been filled with a flow of new and exciting ideas for our whole family. My husband is excited about some inspired ideas and prospects he has and is beginning to implement. All I can say is we’ve got our seatbelts fastened and we’re holding on! I attached a picture (if you want to take the time) of me and my kids on the Rockin’ Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios. Yes, I’m screaming in terror, but I’m excited and having fun…much like this rollercoaster ride we’re on now!
Keep the stories coming! What have the principles done for you?
