What would you do if your hard-earned money were gone in an instant?
Would you still believe that God answers prayers?
Jowena Tan pondered the same questions. If you are going through the same thing, witness how God moved in her family during the toughest moment in life.
Jowena served as a nurse for 20 years in Saudi. After saving enough money for her family, she decided to go home to the Philippines and start a trucking business in General Santos City.
Just as they were starting their trucking business, Jowena faced problems.
The client failed to pay them for months, and she was unable to contact them. Doubts clouded her mind. What will happen to her family? What will happen to her employees?
“Imagine, that happened in December, so we needed to pay for the 13th month of our employees. We had little money left. My husband has reached the point where he was very depressed,” Rowena lamented.
In these difficult times, Jowena held on to the power of God’s Word.
“I did not lose hope. I am blessed. I said, ‘Those birds, they are flying. They are chirping, they are really happy. How much more for us whom God created higher than them?”
God touched Jowena’s heart to give to CBN Asia. She decided to commit and surrender everything to the Lord. He trusted God and believed that He will answer their prayers.
She held on to God’s promise in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
AS Jowena and her husband decided to trust God, they experienced great blessings. A client called and paid Jowena! She was greatly blessed because she knows this was God’s answer to their cries and prayers.
Jowena and her family received blessing after blessing. Their client now pays them regularly and by God’s grace, Jowena was also able to work again as a nurse in General Santos.
For Jowena, they can now face any challenges because she knows that God is their help and strength in times of hardship. She knows that the Holy Spirit is within them and their faith as a family became stronger.
If you are facing any problem now, remember that our good God listens and answers our prayers!
