I am asking for my prayer warriors to help me out today. My husband starting a plumbing co. 3 years ago and God has always been faithful to provide and I trust that, but trust in people, not so sure!! We are continually struggling with people to pay us. My husband is an honest hard working man who always completes his work in a timely fashion. But our customers, whether it's a homeowner or a bigger commercial job, never pay us when the job is completed. They constantly make us wait. Our invoices say "due within 7 days of receipt" but they always have an excuse. It is very difficult for me to manage our finances when I never know or can't rely on money owed to us coming in. Please pray for our continued trust in the Lord to provide. We don't want to be an Abram or Sarai and work our own will into this but when I see money that needs to go out and see nothing coming in, I admit I can get scared. Thanks ladies, your prayers are very much appreciated

    • Oh Sassy, my heartfelt prayers go out to you.  I know just how you feel.  My husband has been in business for almost 4 years and folks seem to think it is ok to pay whenever it is convenient for them. Unfortunately, you can only hope they will pay before the bill collectors come a-running.  I pray their hearts open as well as their wallets for your husband.

    • Dear Sassy,
      I’ve lifted you and your husband up to the Lord in prayer.  I’ve asked the Lord to help your business prosper, by the customer making payments upon completion of work.

      May God bless you this day,
      Your sister in Christ,
      Joey

    • Sassy,
      My husband had a business that we had to close because folks would not keep their word on the payment. The check is the mail. Thank God that this did not brake our faith in people. Den and I started another business in 1999 we ask that we get paid 1/2 when we start and the other 1/2 just before competion. We took checks until we had to make a police report on a Bad check over 5,000 dollars. Business is Business and So know we only take Credit Cards and our contract state that we will charge 1/2 up front and the othe 1/2 10 days before completion.
      I will have you in my prays.
