Today's Miracle Monday is Brother Phillip Benyola's testimony of how God provided work for him in a time of need.
I was living and working in Indianapolis in April 2005, and I was asked to travel to Missouri for business on a Tuesday. I was concerned about this trip because I was also scheduled to leave for a missionary trip to Dominica on Saturday morning, just a few days later. I expected to drive back from my business trip and arrive home late Wednesday night. I knew it would be stressful, but I also knew there was plenty of time to do both; however, the meetings did not go as planned at the customer site, and they needed me to stay longer than planned to make some changes to the product we were providing. For obvious reasons, this caused me some alarm, but I knew that even if I didn’t get home until Friday, I could still make the missionary trip without a problem.
But on Friday, things went from bad to worse. The customer asked me to stay through the weekend to make the necessary changes. Of course, I was unable to do that unless I forfeited my obligation to the missionary trip, which involved another brother traveling with me. As Friday evening rolled around, I was panicking. I told the client that I could not stay over the weekend, that I had another commitment and had to leave. Of course, I was a wreck, knowing the consequences that I would face for making that decision. I arrived home after midnight and frantically packed for my 6 a.m. flight.
