Are You Worried About Paying Your Monthly Bills?

Ginny was a single mom struggling to keep up with bills. Month to month, she never knew if she’d be able to pay them. Find out what gave Ginny a whole new outlook on her finances and got her everything she needed. Read Transcript

NARRATOR: Ginny Merriman is thankful

that she was able to retire comfortably,

but she remembers well being a single mom trying to provide

for herself and her son.

It was very difficult because I was a waitress,

and I worked two or three jobs.

It was very-- I was very strapped for money.

NARRATOR: Her income was small and unpredictable,

which made it hard to keep up with bills.

Just to hold on to my house-- my house payment at that time

was $1,500 a month-- and I never knew at any given point

whether I was going to have that money or not.

NARRATOR: Around that same time, Ginny

started watching the 700 Club, where

she learned about taking control of her finances

and how God blesses people who give.

As Pat is explaining the law of reciprocity,

it gave me a whole new outlook.

And I a lot of times have conversations with the Lord,

just me and him.

And I said, Lord, is that what you want me to do?

And I felt in my spirit that it was.

So I said, OK I'm going to start doing that.

NARRATOR: So Ginny went on a budget

and started giving to her church and to CBN.

She found she always had enough to give and pay all her bills.

She kept giving, knowing she could depend on God.

I just learned to trust him more and more and more,

until he became my only source for everything-- everything

I needed.

In a few years she landed a full time job

with the state of Ohio.

It tripled my income, literally tripled my income.

With the advantages of overtime, personal time, comp time,

vacation time, it was amazing.

God blessed me with that job.

NARRATOR: Ginny retired after 10 years.

Today, she still supports the 700 Club.

Because I was fed through Pat Robertsons' teachings,

that changed my life completely.

NARRATOR: When asked what Ginny would

say to those who don't tithe, her answer is simple.

I would say you are robbing yourself of the biggest

blessings of your life.

It is not that God needs our money,

but we need his blessings.
