Are You Waiting for Your Financial “Hallelujah Moment"?

Latisha was a single mom with no job, who struggled to care for herself and young daughter. But even in her time of need, she followed a financial principle that led to her shouting “Hallelujah!”. Her life and finances took an amazing ... Read Transcript


NOT LONG AGO LATISHA WAS ON

UNEMPLOYMENT AND SHE MADE A

DECISION AND HER FUN WAS RINGING

WITH JOBS.

SHE LOVES RAISING HER

FIVE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER.

A FEW YEARS AGO, SHE WAS

RECENTLY DIVORCED, LOST HER JOB

AND CARING FOR HER BABY.

NOT HAPPY WITH MYSELF AT THE

TIME.

VERY UNSURE.

IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I KNEW

GOD WOULD PROVIDE.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY MESS SAYING

HOW CAN YOU HELP US HERE AND

NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

AS SHE SCRAPED BY ON HER

SAVINGS AND UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS,

THE BILLS BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARCE IN THE HOUSE

SOMETIMES.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH THE

PEANUT AND BUTTER SANDWICH.

SHE TITHED FAITHFULLY TO HER

CHURCH, SOMETHING SHE STARTED

MONTHS AGO.

WHY WOULD I STOP NOW, WHETHER

I AM GOING TO TITHE FROM MY

WAGES OR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

OR A RANDOM CHECK IN THE MAIL.

I AM GOING TO GIVE GOD WHAT I

SAID I WOULD GIVE HIM.

IT CAME FROM SOMETHING SHE

LEARNED AT CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT A BASIC PRINCIPLE

ABOUT SOWING.

GOD IS LOOKING FOR YOUR

OBEDIEN

OBEDIENCE.

SHORTLY AFTER HER PHONE BEGAN

TO RING.

EVERY TIME IT WAS A DIFFERENT

EMPLOYER LOOKING FOR AN

INTERVIEW.

SOON SHE WAS READY FOR THE

NEXT STEP, SHE INCREASED HER

GIVING.

ONE DAY HER SUPERVISOR CAME TO

HER.

SHE HANDS ME A FOLDED UP

SHEET OF PAPER WITH A JOB

POSITION.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD MY CURRENT

SUPERVISOR WAS SHOWING ME

ANOTHER JOB.

SHE SAID I BELIEVE YOU HAVE

ABUNDANT POTENTIAL.

SHE APPLIED FOR THE JOB,

THREE WEEKS LATER...

I WAS DRIVING TO MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL WHEN I

RECEIVED THE PHONE CALL.

IT IS THE HR DIRECTOR FROM THE

DREAM JOB.

HE SAID I DON'T WANT TO TAKE

MUCH MORE OF YOUR TIME.

CAN YOU START THIS POSITION IN

TWO WEEKS.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

[LAUGHTER].

I WAS ON THE PHONE AND HE IS

LIKE ARE YOU THERE?

I AM LIKE YES, CAN YOU GIVE ME A

MINUTE, PLEASE, I PUT THE PHONE

ON MUTE AND SHOUTED HALLELUJAH.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

WITH A NEW JOB, HER SALARY

DOUBLED.

TODAY SHE CONTINUES TO GIVE MORE

AND CREDITS ALL HER SUCCESS TO

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

I HAD TO DO THIS.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

RESOURCE.

THIS IS QUOTED, LUKE 6:38, GIVE

AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU,

IN GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER AND RUNNING OVER

WITH THE SAME MEASURE YOU MEET

SHALL BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU.

GOD HAS BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

I MEAN REALLY, I COULD HAVE BEEN

ANYWHERE ELSE.

IT COULD HAVE GONE ANOTHER WAY,

GOD IS SO FAITHFUL.
