Lessons in following God

Ok, so we are having to learn some more lessons in following God.

I made the mistake of trusting someone who turned out to be a fraud. Fortunately, he didn't get away with any of our money, and if he took any of our information, that is yet to be seen. We are making sure to monitor our accounts closely and are going to the fraud department to file a claim as this guy seems to be involved in a huge scam, so much so that the FBI May also be involved.

Lesson #1: if someone wants to help you pay off your debts, do not ever give him any information such as login information or account information. Have them give a donation to your checking account using an email or phone number which they already have if they contacted you.

Lesson #2: if in doubt, don't accept help. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Lesson #3: do not follow your feelings. Listen closely to Gods voice and your gut reactions to any red flags that pop up.

And Lesson # 4: always, and I mean always, check with your banker before making any moves with someone who may be a fraud. Do not ever rely on what he says as truth, even if he seems like a nice person. They can be very convincing. They will say things to make you feel guilty for not trusting them, will seem nice and talk about being cautious, not wanting to give you their information and then turning around and trusting you with it. The information he gives you may end up being false or ill gotten.

Like I said, fortunately, we learned from this, and also he was discovered to be a fraud before he got away with anything.

The last couple of days have been very stressful and we have a few more of those ahead as we make sure that this guy gets his due.

Yesterday, Victor and I decided we would give everything back to God, which we have been a bit lax at doing, especially since it was His to begin with. We are going to try to remember to consult Him in everything. What to do with stuff we intend to get rid of, if we should get rid of it, should we buy that, should we sell that, etc.

He is now officially our Manager, which He should have been all along.


  1. How scary! I'm glad you realized it before it was a very big deal! Have you changed passwords and security phrases on any of the accounts he might have access to? You could even close and open a new bank account if you think he has access to that. Praying!

    1. Thanks for the prayers.

      I did change the login information and we are going to close the credit card after we pay it off. And we may close the account and star over too, that's is a good idea. :) thanks!
