CRYING OUT


A father tells this story: I was $20,000 in debt with unsecured loans. For two years I had been trying to sell some land to cover the debt, but I couldn’t even get a phone call of interest. I tried Realtor after Realtor without success. Finally, in desperation, I walked into the woods and cried, “O, God!” That’s all that came out. My voice failed as emotion flooded me, and I groaned in the spirit.

The next day, a couple told my wife, they’d heard we had land for sale. Within twenty-four hours of crying out, we had an agreement to sell the land for $20,000. Praise God! We are now debt-free and living by God’s financial principles.
