Wow! I am amazed by God’s timing. So many times He brings us to a place where we are desperate. We beg and plead with Him and He proves Himself! So here’s the story… My husband and I are on a plan to become debt-free. We have been working hard, keeping our budget, and doing well. Then, this month, my time in the gym was cut down — a lot. Back in December, we had to replace our air conditioner. We did not have the $4000 we needed to pay for it. We do have a baby emergency fund, as recommended by Dave Ramsey, but that wouldn’t cover the cost. So, we did it on the horrible 0% no payments for a year plan. We put the air conditioner into our debt snowball and we were finally working on paying it off. We had been able to pay $600 each month and thought that we would have it paid off by November (one month early). However, with my hours cut, we would only be able to put $200 on the debt. That meant that we wouldn’t make the payment in time. I was really upset about that and beginning to lose hope in our plan working out. My husband and I have been praying through the whole process, but as this month has passed with less income, I have found myself crying out in desperation. So, when I went out to the mailbox yesterday, I cried. Tears of joy. Tears of absolute amazement. Tears of praise and thanksgiving. Why would a trip to the mailbox make me cry? The check that was inside. This check was enough to pay off the air conditioner and made it possible for us to pick a few needed items, give my little boy a nice 4th birthday party, and possibly put a new roof on our home! God is great and greatly to be praised!!!
