Sometimes we have to remind ourselves how awesome God is! 😎
When I was a senior in high school I remember riding on the bus praying to God to fix it for me! I asked God to Bless me so that I wouldn’t be a financial burden to my parents my senior year. I had a job in Chicago Ridge mall working at Sears but I had lots of expenses such as graduation fees, class ring, luncheon, prom & the amount was over $500 and keep in mind this was well over 20 plus years ago, so that was a significant amount.
So I told God I needed a miracle because I didn’t want that pressure to be on my parents. Well God heard my PRAYER! 🙏🔥🙏
The next week while I was on my way to work, I was stopped in the mall by a talent scout and he asked me to audition for a national commercial ad. I looked at him strange but truthfully because he was Italian and offered to pay me on the spot for just auditioning, I knew he perhaps the real deal. Then I noticed hundreds of people standing in line waiting to audition for the commercial.
The scout walked me to the front of the line, gave me $10 dollars and said I need you to read the line “I never have to wait for a sale”! Well, I said it thanked him for the $10 dollars 💵. The agent told me if I was selected, they would contact me later. I said thanks again and went on my merry way.
Fast forward maybe a month later, on my way to Lindblom HS, I got on the bus 🚌 on 63rd st and people were looking at me strange! It was a few of my classmates on their way to school. They said I saw you on tv 📺. Literally, I had forgotten what they we’re talking about. I was really shy and didn’t even question what they were talking about. When I got home 🏡, my mother told me that her sisters from all over Country was calling because they saw me on the Sear Commercial! Me and my mother started celebrating because we knew something great was about to happen. That week I got contracts in the mail for television 📺 and radio. It was AMAZING!!!
I literally got thousands for saying 8 words!!! I learned the amazing power of the word residual. Which simply meant every time that commercial played, I got PAID! I got to do something that I never dreamed was possible and the awesome bonus was because the talent scout didn’t have me signed to a contract, I didn’t have to give any percentage of my money to an agent. Plus I got to be a member of SAG for actors and my money, came all to me!
God provided a way that every possible expense my senior year, I was able to pay myself! Plus, buy my little sister Tiffany anything she wanted. I never forgot we walked in the store and she wanted a Nintendo unit plus the games! She got everything she wanted plus I purchased her all new clothes. Plus, shared with my family!
I have many testimonies of God doing awesome things!!! I think we need to remind each other that God is still Blessing and in the Miracle Business!!!
