Tell me something good


All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

While saving up money for a down payment for a car, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I had paid a certain company over a thousand bucks last year for services not rendered, and when the  Better Business Bureau asked how I’d like the issue resolved, I stated that I wanted all my money back.
I expected resistence.
Within 24 hours, the head of the company left a voicemail, asking for my address so that he could send me a check for the full amount within 10 business days, and he asked me to please tell the Better Business Bureau that the issue has been resolved.
I got down on my knees immediately and thanked God. Then I called him back, gave him my address and told him I would notify the Better Business Bureau after the check has cleared!
I received the check 2 days later. It put me $1,400 ahead! I’m almost glad the company didn’t do what they were supposed to do last year!

Wow. That's wonderful & VERY encouraging! Maybe it was the prayers that really kicked in and made things happen for you!

My BBB experience has truly sucked... & they've told me that my complaint, tho legit, was something that THEY couldn't handle... and to seek legal means WTF? A bad biz doing illegal business, cheating people, and getting away w/ it! That issue seemed tailor made for the BBB. But no! So I'm now working TWO jobs, just to be able to afford a decent lawyer and sue the offending company. I was starting to wonder of the BBB had become archaic, but at least in your case, that hasn't been the point.

Mad congrats to YOU!

Wowzer! That is indeed a story that tells us to have faith. And that despite living in a cynical world the right thing can happen.

Val, my mom always, " God always has a ram in the bush." She's right. I still freak out initially at the beginning of what I think is going to be a huge problem, but I remind myself that God has been working on the issue before the issue even presented itself.
