Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this… and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

Malachi 3:10

[sf_modal header="Rebecca's Story" btn_colour="accent" btn_type="gfc-large-button" btn_size="standard" btn_text="read story"]My husband and I have been attending Grace for a few years. Even though we have been Christians long enough to know better, we never really tithed consistently. My husband was married before and we have spent the last 10 years in legal/custody battles with his ex-wife. To say we were drained in every way possible is an understatement. A few months back our attorney recommended we split all of our bank accounts and about a month ago we finally got around to it. At that point I told myself I was going to start tithing at least with my money. I got my next check the same day I had family flying in town to visit us. I debated waiting to tithe until the following check so I would have a little money set aside to spend while they were here but I felt God just asking me to trust Him so I tithed that day. The very next day my boss called me into his office and handed me an envelope and told me to have fun with my family while they were in town. The amount he game me was $25 more than my tithe was. I smiled and knew God was smiling too. When I received my next paycheck, I tithed immediately and right after that I got my Duke Energy bill with a zero balance. When I called them they said because of my good history with them they didn't need such a big deposit so they gave me a credit for 2 months. I was completely blown away! Right before I wrote this e-mail I sent my 3rd tithe and was actually excited to do so. I can't wait to see all of the blessings God has in store for my family and me. I hope sharing this encourages someone else to tithe![/sf_modal]

[sf_modal header="Evette's Story" btn_colour="accent" btn_type="gfc-large-button" btn_size="standard" btn_text="read story"]I started working at my current job on January 5, 2015.  I am a single mom to a preschooler and was unemployed for several months last year. I had quite a bit of catching up to do with my bills when my first paycheck arrived at the end of January. Yet I was SO thankful for the 90-day tithing challenge because God had been speaking to my heart the week before the sermon series started about how to revise my budget to honor Him first with the money entrusted to me. I started tithing the full 10% of my gross income with the paycheck I received immediately following the message about the 90-day challenge.  I signed up for bill pay through my bank for my utilities and credit card bills and started to withdraw cash the day after I receive each pay check to cover my other expenses, food, gas, babysitter, etc., all of which I have been tracking in my budget.  Now for the blessings! - Paid off a credit card balance totally (almost $1000 within a month of starting the challenge) - Paid off my car 7 months ahead of schedule on a 48 month loan - Received three checks in the mail totaling over $200 (auto loan, federal and state tax over payments from prior years) - Learned my upcoming rental insurance payment will be reduced by almost 20% - Blessed the young woman who babysat my son while I attended Beautiful this semester - Received a free Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace Junior from a co-worker this past week.  I had budgeted to purchase this tool kit for my son later this year, once I felt more confident about my own financial situation, but clearly God had other plans! - Yesterday I received confirmation of a job promotion - after less than 5 months of employment - and I truly look forward to increasing my giving to align with my upcoming salary increase. God is SO good and I cannot wait to see how he will continue to be a witness to His blessings and almighty power.[/sf_modal]

[sf_modal header="Julie's Story" btn_colour="accent" btn_type="gfc-large-button" btn_size="standard" btn_text="read story"]While my husband and I have been giving, we had not been fully tithing the "first 10". The recent message hit home and we committed to tithing the first 10%. Financially we are doing well and are blessed, but we had been struggling personally. Although my husband's business was increasing, it was not strong and he was not doing what was necessary in order to get his billing under control. That was a continual issue between us. I have been blessed and successful in the role I am in as a recruitment lead. I took this position as a W2 hourly employee and while lucrative, stable and permanent, there were no benefits. We had good medical coverage previously and W2 hourly made sense before, but with the new Affordable Care Act, our coverage went from $600 per month to just under $1300 per month for our family with an out of pocket cost of $12,500 before we could see any benefits. I was angry. The amount of $26,000 per year is not affordable! We have been without insurance for almost a year and the risk is high with an active 10 year old boy. I knew of options such as Medi-share but was not compelled to sign up. I was just angry. I had spoken with my manager in November 2014, asking how I could transition into a full time employee, having been there for 3.5 years. He indicated that this couldn't be done until the following year unless I was willing to take a cut in compensation, which didn't make sense. He did what he could and increased my hourly rate with no issues, which I was thankful. I was angry again, I felt the company was letting me down. I was frustrated with my husband for not stepping up and I began looking for other jobs instead of praying and giving this up to God. I distanced myself from others and also from my church. I was also looking into insurance alternatives, one being Samaritan ministries and felt compelled to sign up. One factor you had to get was your pastor's consent. To be honest, we had stopped coming regularly since December and I was not sure that I could go there and claim in all honesty that I was a "regular" at my church. I finally came around. We were committed to coming back to church not because of the insurance coverage, but because I was trusting God to guide us. At the beginning of a service, I was led to commit to the first 10% and wrote the check willingly and with peace. Previously our giving was around 7-8% but I was compelled to write the check for the 10% at the beginning of the service, with no idea what the message was. I love God and His ways! The next day, my manager called me up to tell me that he was going to put me in for the promotion and the conversion to a full time employee as an exception. We discussed the dollars and they were a bit lower than the current W2 hourly rate but with the benefits as well as the bonuses and commissions, it would somewhat equal. Either way, the peace of mind of having full corporate benefits for my family was a true blessing. I sat down and was working on the new budget, seeing how this would work putting the first line in the budget being “Tithing to my Church.” Other goals were to see if we could pay down a couple of credit cards and keep our savings strong as we had been doing. Somehow the budget not only balanced out, but there was more. I wanted to base this on my salary alone and what my husband could commit to bringing in monthly, not the bonuses /commissions I would be getting. This was a cut of about $1,200 per paycheck for me. I was thinking how is this going to work out? With God's Grace and Him alone, the numbers not only worked out, but with the first 10% still on top, I was able to increase what we put towards paying off the 3 credit cards aggressively, still keep our high level of monthly savings and there is a net sum at the end that is not below zero. Trust me, I had to pour over the numbers a few times and sit back in initial disbelief and then in amazement. I am truly amazed and thankful.[/sf_modal]
