Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work —John Jackson works in a paint store, but on the weekends he loves working as a freelance photographer. He’s also a partner with CBN.

“They show what they’re doing, every day, every week,” says John. “Whether it’s orphanages, whether it’s around the world, or here in my neighborhood, they show what they’re doing. And to me, based on what I’ve learned through scripture, that’s good ground. If that’s good ground, then you’ll get a harvest.”
In 1995, John started giving $20 a month. He says soon after that, God prompted him to give $84 a month, but John resisted. “I kinda pushed it away,” John recalls. “I’m like, ‘I can’t afford that.’”
At the time, John was struggling with his finances and riding a bike to work. He had a full-time job at a local paint store, but his car needed expensive repairs and he had to sell it at a loss just to make ends meet.

John remembers that time vividly. “One day I was riding, I was like, ‘Lord, I’m tired of this. What’s next?’ And again, ‘You need to give, pledge express. This is how much; not just give this much, but pledge express it.’ He was specific on what He wanted me to do.”

Finally, John increased his CBN pledge to $84 a month.

When I made up my mind to do it, that’s when the promotions started coming; I just recently got promoted to store manager, and that well over doubled my pay,” says John.  

In addition to his promotion, John saw God at work in other ways. For one thing, his photography business took off. “I’m getting more hits on my website. It’s more than doubled. It’s more than tripled,” John says. “And I found a car, in excellent condition, for $2,200. The Blue Book says it’s worth $3,800. It’s God. I’m just following His principles.”

John says that he learned those principles, in part, from watching The 700 Club.

“I hear CBN talk about it all the time,” says John, “They use the scripture, ‘You sow sparingly; you’ll reap sparingly. You sow abundantly; you’ll reap abundantly.’  And I’ve seen it in my own life. So now you can’t convince me otherwise.”

John believes obedience is key to unlocking God’s blessings. “You can’t afford not to tithe,” he says. “You can’t afford not to sow into a ministry like CBN. Just be obedient to God. Listen to what He’s telling you. Get involved, partner with CBN. You’ll be blessed.”

Being obedient to God's truth made an incredible difference for John. Join him in partnering with CBN. You will make a difference in lives around the world, through medical missions, food and clothing programs, humanitarian outreaches and so much—all in the name of Jesus. Please join today.
