Buried in Bills? There’s a Way Out.

Jane’s bills piled up as she chose which ones would get paid and which ones would not. When she saw no way out of debt, one thing became clear and opened her eyes. It's providing for her family’s every need and it can for you too. Read Transcript


Reporter: SHE LOVES

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" WITH

HER TWO DAUGHTERS, JANE AND

JAY.

IT LET'S ME KNOW I'M NOT

BY MYSELF.

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE OUT

THERE WHO A HAVE STRUGGLED

AND HAD HARD TILES.

Reporter: JANE HAS HAD

SOME TOUGH TIMES HERSELF.

AFTER A SECOND DIVORCE, SHE

REALIZED SHE NEEDED GOD.

I WAS ALONE AGAIN, WITH

TWO CHILDREN.

AFTER MY LAST MARRIAGE, I

SAID THIS IS IT.

I'M GOING BACK TO WHERE I

NEED TO BE.

Reporter: JANE STARTED

GOING TO CHURCH AN CHURCH

AND WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

SHE DREW CLOSE TO GOD, BUT

FINALLY SHE WAS STRUGGLING.

SHE HAD THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

OF CREDIT CARD DEBT LEFT

OVER FROM HER MARRIAGE.

NOT TO MENTION THE COST OF

DRIVING A GAS-GUZZLING

S.U.V.

THE HOUSE PAYMENT WAS

OVER $2,000.

AND I WAS DRIVING A VEHICLE,

ALTHOUGH IT WAS PAID FOR, IT

WAS COSTING ME $800 TO

$1,000 A MONTH IN GAS.

YOU'RE DECIDING WHICH BILLS

GET PAID.

AND WORRIED THAT THE LIGHT

BILL WAS GOING TO BE MORE

THIS MONTH, AND WAS I GOING

TO HAVE IT THIS MONTH.

Reporter: SHE HAD SEEN

STORIES ON "THE 700 CLUB" OF

HOW GOD BLESSED OTHERS

THROUGH THEIR FAITHFUL

GIVING.

SO SHE GAVE TO HER CHURCH

WHEN SHE COULD, BUT THE

BILLS KEPT COMING, AND SHE

FELT SHE HAD NO MONEY LEFT

TO GIVE.

I'M WATCHING THESE

STORIES AND I'M HEARING

THESE PEOPLE SAY, YOU KNOW,

OH, YOU PROVIDED, AND NOW

THERE IS JUST AN ABUNDANCE

IN MY LIFE.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

WAS BLOCKING ME FROM THAT

GIFT.

Reporter: ON ONE

OCCASION SHE WAS CRYING OUT

TO GOD BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY GAS

OR EVEN CEREAL OR MILK FOR

YOUR GIRLS.

LATER THAT AFTERNOON, A

FRIEND STOPPED BY WITH A

THANK YOU CARD.

HE SAID, I WANT TO THANK

YOU.

YOU TAKE SETH BACK AND FORTH

TO SCHOOL.

AND I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW

THAT I APPRECIATE YOU.

WHEN I OPENED IT, IT WAS A

$50 GIFT CARD.

YOU'RE ON YOUR KNEES CRYING,

AND THEN WITHIN TWO HOURS

THERE IS $50 AT YOUR DOOR.

THAT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN.

I THINK THAT WAS A TURNING

POINT FOR ME.

OKAY, JANE, YOU STILL HAVE

TO TRUST HIM.

Reporter: JANE COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND HOW SHE COULD

GIVE 10%, UNTIL SOMETHING

SHE SAW SOMETHING ON THE

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW

MUCH YOU GIVE.

SOME PEOPLE COULD ONLY GIVE

$5, BUT THEY STARTED GIVING

IT FAITHFULLY.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

GIVING TO CBN, USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IIT IS COMING OUT OF MY

CHECKING ACCOUNT.

IT IS ONE OF THE FIRST

THINGS THAT COMES OUT.

IT IS NOT PART OF THE

BUDGET.

IT IS THERE, AND I WANT TO

BE FAITHFUL WITH IT.

Reporter: JANE SAYS GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS TO

GET HER FINANCES ON TRACK.

FIRST SHE TRADED IN HER

S.U.V., WHICH WAS PAID FOR

AND CLEARED $10,000.

WHICH WAS ENOUGH TO PAY OFF

HER CREDIT CARDS.

SHE ALSO MOVED OUT OF THE

HOUSE SHE WAS IN AND FOUND

HER DREAM HOME, WHICH WAS

WELL WITHIN HER BUDGET.

WHEN MY KIDS WALKED IN,

MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, WHO

LOVES TO COOK, SAYS, MAMA,

IT EVEN HAS DOUBLE OVENS.

Reporter: JANE WANTS

EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT

THROUGH HER FAITHFUL GIVING

TO CHURCH AND CBN, GOD IS

GIVING HER FAMILY EVERYTHING

THEY NEED.

LOOK AT HOW GOD IS

WORKING, LOOK AT HOW HE IS

PROVIDING FOR ME.
