How big is your faith?

This is an awesome story of God's faithfulness and timing:

The Need:My husband and I have a friend who is a very hard worker, positive person to be around, yet, it is very difficult for him to make ends meet for his growing family. He was having a hard time making it to work, because his car kept breaking down. I asked my husband what this family needed most, he laughed and said, "A car." So, I posted it on Link'd up and waited.

The Answer:A few days went by and I began to think that this 'need' was too much to ask. The next day, (NO LIE) I got a call from a TrueNorther who was PUMPED to give this family her car! She said that her parents had given HER the car 9 months ago to sell or give to her kids, but something inside her told her to save the car. Then she read the Link'd Up email about the NEED and she said the Holy Spirit told her right then that that was why she was saving the car. WOW!

The Surprise:My husband and I picked up the car, took it to the man's workplace and had him do touch up paint work on it all day. The "customer" showed up at lunch, thanked him for doing a fabulous job, told him that she was giving the car to someone as a present and that 'someone' was HIM. He could not believe it. He kept walking around and around the car saying, "Oh man." When he drove it home that night, his wife wouldn' believe him :).

In conclusion, this family came to church last Sunday for the first time in many years. They said TrueNorth is not a church, but a congregation. They felt accepted and happy to be there.Thanks to Link'd Up and a giving heart, this family has been extremely blessed and all credit goes to Jesus! Lift Him UP!
