I Saw God Move
Almost two years ago, my family and I began attending our church. Long story short, it is a church we helped start in 2002. We returned during the church’s ten-year celebration.
We’ve been there ever since.
I’ve seen God move since we’ve been there.
Not long after we arrived back we learned that we were facing a bit of a financial crisis as a church. In fact, it seems like much of America, our church had been hit hard by the recession and other things.
Our church faced a large debt that made it difficult for the church financially. About a year ago things began to happen.
Our pastor’s wife made pumpkin rolls for the holidays and sold them. All proceeds went to the church debt.
We began a “Junk for Jesus” campaign where people brought scrap metal in to sell.
One man gave a prized gun and jewelry to the church.
Other funds mysteriously appeared.
The result? We reduced our church debt by about $80,000 during that stretch.
When our church bought our property, twenty acres were purchased. About seven acres were unusable. No one would want that. No one except our neighbor.
He wanted it for a right of way and buffer. He had no knowledge of our situation.
He ended up purchasing it for $50,000.
What can we learn from this? All sorts of things. I will let you form your own takeaways.
I just want to glorify God for what He did to move the hearts of so many people to accomplish this feat. It was incredible watching it happen.
Have you ever watched God work in a group of His people?
