Septic Tank Gold

Title: Septic Tank Gold
Category: Story
Subject: Trouble; Hardships; Providence of God

Troubles began piling up for a Midwest couple. First, they lost their jobs. Then the septic tank in their backyard caved in. This new problem reflected the way things were going for them--right down the drain. When the husband began digging around the tank, though, the story changed. His shovel uncovered a gold coin. Eagerly, he started digging with his hands, and to his astonishment he found 75 gold pieces. Suddenly the couple's misfortune had become a fortune, for they now owned a coin collection worth from $200,000 to $1.5 million. Apparently they had unearthed the cache of some rich prospectors of the 1849 gold rush era.

When troubles come your way, trust God to bring forth something good from it. Read Romans 8:28.
