God’s Amazing Grace

Being a single parent wasn’t part of my plan for my life; however, I was blessed to have a home for my family of two. The mortgage was crippling and relentless. I was horrified to find most of the payments going into the interest rather than paying off capital. There was never enough left over after paying the bills for repairs on the house, let alone anything else.

I became a believer at this time of my life and one of the foundational scriptures for me then and still is now is Proverbs 3: 5-6…Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.

Has it been easy? No. Has it been worth it? Most definitely.

When my children were grown and my daughter became a single parent, I wanted to help in some way.   A friend told me about Liberty Trust and on inquiry I requested to join.

It was worth it to pay half my weekly grocery allowance into the fund, believing that one day the mortgage over the home my daughter lived in would be interest free.

That day came a year earlier than we expected. We still were locked into the bank mortgage for another 2 years; however, Liberty Trust was absolutely marvelous and sorted all that out….far too much for my artistic brain to work out…thank you soooooo much!

Now every payment is paying the capital off the home my daughter and her children are living in. They and I have peace of mind believing we are making the best use of the resources God has blessed us with.

I have the privilege of continuing to sow into others lives through Liberty Trust, thus sowing into the next generation, and the generations beyond that.

God is so good.  It is His Amazing Grace.

Thank you Father and God bless you all at Liberty Trust as you continue the Kingdom work of release from debt to freedom.
