“… A NEW LEVEL OF MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD…”
Pastor and Maria, please know you have both helped me so much. God bless you. Praying for you for ongoing faith, wisdom and love.
“Dear Pastor Paul,
[We] have decided to tithe on an inheritance gift I received this week from my grandparents. I know most people we have talked with wouldn’t do this, but to us, it is money we have been given whether we earn it or not… it came from God. God uses humans to bless humans, so we thank God for the blessing he has given to us. A Quick background to understand why tithing is huge for us….
In the 10 years we have been married, we have moved 7 times, have had unemployment, business success, business failure, foreclosure on a house, had 4 children, short sale on a condo, car wreck leaving [his] neck nerves damaged with a 3 year medical law suit, kicked out of our home, bankruptcy, and me trying to get into medical school. At times I did not know if we would make it; financially, spiritually or even our marriage. I remember many times being on my face, weeping asking God what I needed to do, why is this happening, please use our suffering for a good purpose. We have been through several major life events all at one time and only being married 10 years, but deep down we knew God had great things for our family and kept pressing on knowing one day this would be over and things would be better. Or at least we were hoping they would. Things starting turning the corner around the time we started coming to LWFC. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
We can’t express our gratitude to you as a church in words. We have been monumentally changed and are challenged weekly. We don’t miss a service, and if we can’t attend because the kids are sick we watch online. The kids always ask, “Do we get to go to church today?”. We have been tithing a while now, we took your tithe challenge. It has been amazing and the blessings, tangible and intangible, have been worth it. We can’t wait to see what God will do with our lives letting Him take control and lead us. No matter how far apart business deals are, we do not fear or worry like we used to. We trust its already on the way, and we do our part and God will do His.
Thank you again for all you do! It doesn’t go unnoticed, we are truly grateful and thankful.
Blessings to you and your family and church,
Malachi 3:10 (NKJV) “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this” says the Lord of Hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such a blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it”.”
