Trust Me

by Chay

Our electric bill was due on the 9th, same as the car insurance and some other small bills. December was a tough month, it was when property taxes were due and holiday was just around the corner. I am an accountant and budgeting is my forte'. However, budgeting is not the issue, I got a huge pay cut couple months ago. I had to pull all our resources to get our finances straight. When the economy hit our business, it was tougher than what I thought it would be. I called these utility companies and requested to give me a few extra days and made a promise to pay our bills. They agreed to it but they would still charge me penalty. I was frustrated, then it would be more than what I owed. We have a good credit score, never was late in paying bills, but they didn't care...this is business and this is just how it is.

Driving on my way home that night, several things ran through my mind. What if I completely lose my job? What if we can’t pay our mortgage anymore? Are we gonna lose the house we thought would be our retirement home? Where are we gonna go? I have no answers. Then a thought just suddenly flashed before me.
God promised "Cast your burden upon me.. those who are heavily laden, come to me and I will give you rest...


I got home that night, prepared dinner, talked a little and then head out to pick up the mail. As I was sorting through the mail, one envelope caught my attention. I opened it carefully and to my surprise it was the check we were told we will receive the following month. The thoughts flashed again .. “ He said cast your burden upon me, those who are heavily laden, come to me and I will give you rest... "

I will never get tired saying --- God.. you are an amazing God !




(The night I saw a big smile from the sky)

  2. Life is never meant to be easy and plain sailing. A little bit cruel and insensitive to say that, but I suppose there is a lot of truth in it. We really need to have full trust on God... ~bangchik

  8. In our brokenness, God’s glory is magnified! I admire you for bravely sharing your predicament with us! Very admirable girl! And in the process, calling our attention to God’s faithfulness! Bravo! I know like the case of Job, that pay cut is but a piece in a beautiful puzzle that will be revealed when all else fall into place. Thank you for inspiring us with this wonderful sharing, Chay! We will wait for your story to come out in Guideposts. Looking forward to it girlfriend! ;)

    “Guideposts” is a wonderful reading material. The stories are truly inspiring! Thank you for the ones you sent me. It helped me get through my difficult times in the hospital and helped me pass the time when I came home. I devoured all of them and hungry for more (hehe). I also love the book, it was as if you were led by the spirit to send it to me. It has been nourishment for my battered soul. Your thoughtfulness is unparalleled! You are a blessing, friend. :)

    There is a spiritual warfare raging and we are but warriors in the war zone –let’s fight the good fight of faith! I continue to pray with you and for you. :)

  22. life is not that easy, full of sufferings and trials...

    we don't know our "shicksal" (faith) what could happen... and trusting in God is what we can do...

  26. My name is Mrs. favour jeffry,From USA ,and I’m happily married with a lovely husband and three children.I had a very big problem with my husband few months ago,to the extent that he even packed his things away from our house. He left I and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring him back.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, that he is the only one that can handle my situations and problem,that he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting and helping of the needy, Pls every one i would like you all to contact him with his email address,which is as follows.”drsmartspellhome@gmail.com". I never believed in spell casting,but My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn't believed Him, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by Dr. smart. So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or and problem at all, pls Contact him and have a happy life. you can contact him via email (drsmartspellhome@gmail.com ) all you can call him +2348104933655.
