Reporter: MIKE AND

JENNY MASON WERE LOOKING

FORWARD TO A RETIREMENT FULL

OF VISITS WITH THEIR

GRANDCHILDREN.

BUT AS MIKE ENTERED HIS

60s, HE CAME TO A TERRIBLE

CONCLUSION.

I'M NEVER GOING TO BE

ABLE TO RETIRE.

Reporter: YEARS OF

CREDIT CARD SPENDING HAD

LEFT THE MATIO MASONS IN A

DEEP CREDIT CARD HOLE.

I'M ASHAMED TO SAY WE'RE

$44,000 IN DEBT.

AT LEAST A THIRD OF THE

INCOME GOING OUT TO CREDIT

CARD DEBT, MAYBE MORE.

Reporter: IN THE MIDST

OF THEIR TROUBLES, THE

COUPLE MADE AN IMPORTANT

DECISION THEY HAD BEEN

PUTTING OFF FOR YEARS.

JEN AND I MADE A

COMMITMENT TO TITHE FIRST.

JENNY HAD ALWAYS HANDLED ALL

OF OUR FINANCES.

SHE WAS ALWAYS SO GOOD TO

SAY, MIKE, THIS IS NOT

RIGHT.

WE NEED TO BE TITHING.

BECAUSE I'VE BEEN RAISED

TO TITHE.

I KNEW THAT TITHING WAS THE

WAY TO GO.

Reporter: THEY ALSO

INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

CBN, WHERE THEY HAD BEEN

PARTNERS FOR YEARS.

WE FELT LIKE WE WERE

PARTS OF HELPING OTHER

PEOPLE, STRICTLY BECAUSE IT

WAS AN ENCOURAGING TIME.

Reporter: THEN MIKE GOT

TERRIBLE NEWS.

THE TIRE PLANT WHERE HE WAS

SHUTTING DOWN.

AND HE WOULD LOSE HIS JOB.

I THOUGHT BANKRUPTCY

WOULD BE THE ONLY WAY.

I JUST KEPT PRAISING THE

LORD.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I'M GOING

THROUGH THIS LORD, I'M GOING

THROUGH IT, BUT I'M GOING TO

MAKE IT.

SOMEHOW WER GOIN WE'RE

GOING TO MAKE IT.

Reporter: SO THEY LEFT

THE BANKRUPTCY LAWYER'S

OFFICE WITHOUT SIGNING THE

PAPERS.

WHEN THEY GOT HOME, THEY GOT

A MESSAGE.

HE QUALIFIED FOR EARLY

RETIREMENT BY JUST THREE

DAYS.

THE LADY LAID THE

PAPERWORK OUT FOR ME, AND LO

AND BEHOLD, THERE WAS UNTIL

MONEY FOR US TO PAY OFF OUR

DEBTS AND US FOR US TO

TAKE RETIREMENT.

IT WAS A MIRACLE.

Reporter: MIKE AND

JENNY ARE ENJOYING THEIR

RETIREMENT AND THEIR

GRANDCHILDREN, FREE FROM

THE FEAR OF DEBT.

I HAD TO LET GO OF THE

FEAR.

I KNOW HE IS GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF ME.

WHEN I FINALLY

SURRENDERED MY FINANCES TO

GOD, I WENT FROM DEBT TO OUT

OF DEBT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.

SOMETHING I COULD NEVER HAVE

THOUGHT ABOUT OR PLANNED ON

MY OWN.

YOU CAN'T OUT-GIVE GOD.
