Being Owed Money Striving To Pass The Test

being owed money and striving to pass the test

I in 1 trial heard person enjoin, “challenges are exactly wonderfully disguised opportunities for growth.” I actually do believe it to live true. Just like a potent physical body requires exercises that delineate it beyond what is comfortable, as good as as well as then a stiff lineament requires challenges that aren’t comfortable. My newest challenge is that an advertiser owes me a lot of money.

The outset 4th dimension mortal owed me money

I remember as a teen selling my guitar to an acquaintance from church as well as later months of reminders too fiddling to no payments I realized that I wasn’t probable to always cause got total payment for the guitar. As a fairly immature Christian, I learned 2 lessons. First, that Christians are people simply like everyone else who ready mistakes as good as don’t always do what they should. Secondly, that I could “fight for my correct” inward the flesh or I could allow God vindicate me.

At that dot inwards my life the $400 that was owed to me was a huge amount of money in addition to it was honestly really difficult to shape that attending on the Lord. I prayed most it for weeks as good as it became clear that the best divide of activity was to deliberately SOW the guitar into his life. I realized that I could either get a victim mentality, thinking that something was stolen from me, or I could choice out non to acquire been stolen from as well as GIVE it, knowing that the Lord sees my middle too would advantage that.

Looking dorsum on this lesson, as hard every scrap it was it was as good as so goodness for my graphic symbol evolution. It helped me direct a dandy stride forrard inward breaking whatsoever dearest of money that was nowadays inward my life together with ultimately helped me to improve acquire seat my trust inwards God rather than trying to do things conduct abode myself.

“Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.” -Luke half dozen:30

Today’s challenge

Fast forward to a today, and I have a new opportunity for growth. As a result of being a total-4th dimension blogger, I induce payments from quite a few dissimilar advertisers too advertising networks. Up until a few months agone, I was making the error of non thoroughly keeping rails of my payments. I just assumed that if they owed me money, they would simply pay me. As a outcome of my naivety, ane special advertiser went months without paying as good as right away owes me many times more than what I was owed for the guitar. At commencement I simply contacted them to permit them know, assuming it was exclusively a mistake too that they would alone pay off the remaining residual. Instead the lastly couplet months handgrip been a lot of me calling inwards add-on to emailing together with getting petty to no reply together with flush less inward payments from them.

As if the large chunk of alter that they owe me wasn’t enough, this is money that I pay my bills with. It seems that the stakes are quite a chip higher than they were with the guitar inward high schoolhouse.

At the peak of my frustration I stumbled upon this verse…

“Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.” -Philippians 4:5

And just guess what the definition of “forbearing” is. Webster’s defines it as, “a refraining from the enforcement of something (every bit a debt, correct, or obligation) that is due.

I think God was trying to brand a dot to me, as well as as thick as it was assail, I got it. To add together to that, I felt similar I was supposed to apologize to the advertiser for existence besides overbearing. After tilt together with coming upwardly amongst most 100 reasons that they should be apologizing me, rather than me apologizing to them, I obeyed too sent an electronic post apologizing for my behavior.

The side past times times side verse inwards Philippians iv says…

“Be anxious for nothing, but inward everything by prayer in add-on to supplication amongst thanksgiving allow your requests be made known to God.”

While all this was going on, we were saving upwards every dime nosotros could regain thence we could come upwards upwardly alongside the required downward payment. I conduct hold got to admit it was difficult non beingness anxious knowing that if they would precisely ship what they owed, we would comfortably hold got our downwardly payment covered. I guess that was role of the exam.

So after all that I was convinced that I was going to cast this care on the Lord and allow Him to work on the situation. Right before I left for Florida two weeks ago, I called them to kindly acquire a update on the payment condition together with it appears they conduct agree gone out of job concern. It’second all a essay.

There have been some audio practical concern lessons that I concur learned from all this that will serve me proficient inwards the fourth dimension to come upwards, but much to a greater extent valuable are the lessons that God is teaching me closed my graphic symbol and how to do things His way. I don’t know if I testament e'er live repaid from the advertiser, but I am confident that obeying God’second Word volition e'er yield the best outcome – l-fifty if I don’t come upwards across it right away.
