When the Bills Are Piling Up

Here's a story from a friend about “living by faith, not sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7) that I hope you and I can both emulate.
The bills had arrived faster than income for several months. For several weeks Tom had not slept well. The stress was excruciating. And now, an unpaid vendor was chewing him out as he quietly listened. His heart was heavy as he placed the phone back in its cradle. This was the first time in his career that Tom had creditors calling to ask when he could pay. Discouraged, he shut his door, slipped to his knees, and began to pray.
You wouldn’t be surprised to learn that things turned around over the next few days, would you? Well, they did.
For the glory of Christ and no other reason,
