What You Can Expect God to Do

Eric was an out-of-work musician struggling to get by. Desperate, he donated plasma to help pay the bills. Despite his difficult situation, he made a plan for the little money he had and watched three dollars turn into $3,000. Watch what he ... ... Read Transcript


Reporter: JAZZ DRUMMER

ERIC THOMAS WORKS A DAY JOB

TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

HE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS

MUSIC AND ABOUT GIVING TO

CBN.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING THE

CLUB FOR A WHILE, SEEING

WHAT THEY'RE DOING WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" RELIEF

FOR HURRICANE SANDY.

SEE HOW THEY TRULY ARE

CARING FOR PEOPLE.

I WANTED TO BE A PART OF

THAT.

Reporter: ERIC HAS

ALWAYS BEEN A TITHER, GIVING

AWAY 10% OF HIR INCOME.

I STARTED TO SEE SOME

REWARDS COMING BACK WITH

TITHING, AND MOST

IMPORTANTLY, GIVING TO "THE

700 CLUB."

Reporter: THEN HE WAS

LAID OFF FROM HIS SALES JOB

AND STRUGGLED JUST TO GET

BY.

I HAD TO START DONATING

PLASMA.

I WAS AT A VERY LOW POINT IN

MY LIFE.

FOR PLASMA, YOU CAN ONLY

GET, LIKE, $30 A SESSION.

Reporter: STILL, HE

WANTED TO KEEP ON TITHING.

I WOULD TAKE $3 FOR A

TITHE, AND USED THE REST FOR

PUTTING GAS IN MEYE MY CAR

OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

AFTER HE DECIDED TO KEEP

TITHING, A FRIEND OFFERED

HIM A FULL-TIME GIG, PLAYING

DRUMS FOR A MUSICAL

SESSION.

HE TOLD ME IT WAS GOING

TO BE PAYING THREE GRAND A

MONTH.

I REALIZED THAT GOD

MULTIPLIED THOSE THREE

DOLLARS INTO $3,000 JUST

BECAUSE I OPENED MY HEART TO

WHAT HE HAD FOR ME.

Reporter: WHEN THE

MUSICAL PRODUCTION ENDED,

ERIC WAS OUT OF P A JOB

AGAIN.

I HAD TO MAKE IT UP IN MY

MIND I NEEDED TO PRESS ON,

DESPITE MY CIRCUMSTANCES,

DESPITE MY SURROUNDINGS.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER, HE HEARD OF A JOB

OPENING AT XEROX.

I APPLIED FOR THE POSITION,

AND THE DIRECTOR LIKED ME

AND HIRED ME RIGHT THERE ON

THE SPOT.

IT ELEVATED MY FAITH EVEN

MORE.

GOD IS MY SOURCE.

WHETHER IT IS THROUGH

PRAYER, WHETHER IT IS

THROUGH GIVING YOUR TITHE,

EXPECT.

EXPECT FOR GOD TO MOVE.
