Getting Back to Financial Health

When Rex and Rosa moved to beautiful New Mexico, they found themselves in a financial desert. Rex lost his job and money was running out fast. That’s when Rex remembered a principle that lead to financial security in the past. They put it ... ... Read Transcript


Reporter: REX AND ROSA

JOHNSON LOVE TAKING IN A

BEAUTIFUL SUNSET AT THEIR

HOME IN THE NEW MEXICO

DESERT.

SHORTLY AFTER THEY MOVED

HERE, THOUGH, REX LOST HIS

JOB WHEN HIS COMPANY

DOWNSIZED, AND THEY HAD TO

LIVE ON SAVINGS.

SOMETIMES IT IS HAND TO

MOUTH, BUT I'M DOING MY

BEST.

THAT'S ALL A MAN CAN DO.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

REX WAS HOME MORE OFTEN AND

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" WITH ROSA, WHO HAD

BEEN A LONG-TIME VIEWER.

THE BIBLICAL TEACHINGS ON

THE SHOW REMINDED HIM OF THE

IMPORTANCE OF GIVING AND

TITHING FAITHFULLY,

SOMETHING THEY HADN'T DONE

FOR YEARS.

BUT AS I GOT INTERESTED

IN "THE 700 CLUB," I STARTED

REMEMBERING WHEN WE WERE

TITHING REGULARLY, AND WE

WERE DOING THESE THINGS.

AND IT WOULD SEEM LIKE WE

WOULD NEED SOME MONEY, AND

SOMEHOW IT WOULD HAPPEN.

I'D GET OVERTIME OR

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED WOULD

HAPPEN.

Reporter: WHEN ROSA

SUGGESTED THEY START GIVING

TO CBN, REX WAS WAY AHEAD OF

HER.

GOD MADE A PROMISE, AND

REALLY CBN BROUGHT THAT OUT

AND IT KEPT RESONATING IN MY

MIND.

THAT'S WHERE HE SAID, TRY

ME.

I SAID, YOU KNOW, I'M GOING

TO DO IT.

Reporter: SO THE

JOHNSONS BECAME CBN

PARTNERS.

SOON AFTER --

ONCE I MADE THAT

COMMITMENT, THE NEXT DAY I

GOT A PHONE CALL FOR A JOB I

DIDN'T APPLY FOR.

YES, I WAS SURPRISED.

IT IS MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: IN FACT, THE

JOB WAS BETTER THAN THE ONE

HE APPLIED FOR, AND THE

JOHNSONS BELIEVE IT IS

BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

NOW THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT

GIVING.

THEY SAY THERE HAVE BEEN

TIMES THEY COULDN'T WAIT TO

INCREASE THEIR PLEDGE TO

CBN.

I'M WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND GORDON IS

TALKING, AND I'M SITTING

THERE AND I'M GETTING

STIRRED IN MY HEART.

I THINK, I NEED TO GIVE A

LITTLE MORE MONEY.

Gordon: A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER SAYING I WANT TO BE

IN THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

I WAS WORKING OUT, AND

AFTER THAT, I DID MY

COOLDOWN AND INCREASED OUR

PLEDGE.

Reporter: REX AND ROSA

ARE CONVINCED THAT THROUGH

THEIR GIVING, GOD HAS

BLESSED THEM IN MORE WAYS

THAN THEY CAN COUNT.

I'M ABLE TO GIVE.

I'M ABLE TO SAVE.

I'M PAYING OUR BILLS.

AND NOW I WOULDN'T THINK OF

NOT GIVING TO GOD.

SO I'M FEELING GOOD.
