Living on God’s Economy . I think that of all the testimonies I have written, and the stories that I have told, this one takes the cake. About a year and a half ago, I was coming out of a fast food restaurant with my van, and suddenly blacked out without any warning. I do not remember anything that happened, until I came to in the hospital. Needless to say, the van was totaled and so I have not had any transportation since. . The town where I live has a Senior Citizen Center, and seniors can eat there free. Not only that, but also this town has a taxi service and for those who eat at the center can call the taxi any time and go anywhere in town free. It’s a wonderful service and arrangement. . Anyway, I’ve been eating lunch each day there and recently met a man and his wife. He told me a story of how he had a house up the lake, and turned power of attorney over to his son. Long story short, his son took it upon himself to decide all the financial details about the man’s life. Even though this man has money in the bank, he can’t touch it, and must live on $150 per month. I found out also that this man is musically talented and has written over 100 songs. All of the music that he has written is written out longhand. . My son bought me software some time ago, whereby I can now simply speak into mic and the words come up on the screen. Practically no more typing. For that reason I could take something someone wrote longhand, recite it into the mic, and transcribe onto my laptop, then format it any way I want. . So as a labor of love - without charge - I have taken it upon myself to take this man’s hundred pages of music, and put it into print. This is not the first time I have preserved someone’s legacy, and I imagine it will not be the last. But thanks to my son buying me this software, I can make something happen that would have never been possible before. . I want to tell you good advice if you want to know God’s will for your life. Proverbs 3:5,6 says “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Again and again I have worked on peoples’ lifetime work and was able to format it into print or DVDs or other media and create a legacy that would otherwise go by the wayside. This one is no exception. Now as I said, I am doing this project for him as a labor of love. It’s going to be a massive project, and if I were to charge someone a dollar amount, it would never happen. I won’t worry about money. I don’t worry about where the money comes from. I trust God for my finances. And God has an economy. What He is saying in this situation is this: “David, as a result of you doing a project like this, I’m going to give you the desires of your heart.” . My son (the same one who bought me this software) and I have been looking over the Internet for a vehicle. I have poured over many, many vehicles for sale and found a few options that we might go out and look at. For whatever reason - and to this moment I do not know why - I decided to go back over and look at them all over again. Wonder of wonders, I came across a 1993 Plymouth Voyager. Most of the vehicles are selling for around $1000 and up. Anything less was not running - bad transmission - etc. This one was in good running condition, and the selling for $500. The owner JUST POSTED IT! . The next day, my other son and I went to look at it, and bought it. Now as far as I’m concerned, as I look at money, transactions and economy, I am saying to myself “here I am willing to do a project for someone as a labor of love, and find a $1000 Van for $500! Tonight, that van is parked in front of my house. Between getting tags current, insurance, and some things done to the van that needs work, the total cost is around $1000, which is still a very good deal. . My son has a heart of gold. He bought me this software that I transcribe material on to the computer. I wanted to borrow money from him to buy this vehicle. He will not lend me the money. As a labor of love, he is giving me the money! . This whole scenario is a win-win situation on all sides. What happens? God gets the glory! I get the blessing! My son gets the blessing for giving me the money! And I feel that because of what I am doing as a labor of love for this man who has written music that it is putting a whole series of events into motion. . Now I have entitled this “Living on God’s Economy.” If I had done everything that I do as a business, charging X amount of dollars for projects I work on, everything you read about here could never have happened. The reward comes from doing something as a labor of love, and God sets in motion a whole series of events, and all based on love and giving! My God is alive, and He is on the throne! .
