The Overpaid Natural Gas Bill
I started reading The Secret a few weeks ago. The book immediately changed my life. I realized that I could not live the way I lived in the past. Then I thought of one example that showed me that my life really changed…
I moved into my townhouse about 2 years ago. In this townhouse I have natural gas. This is the first time I have ever had natural gas, so I was not sure how the bill would affect me. In the summer the bill would be really low ($20.00), but for the past two winters my bill was between $200 and $300 a month. Many of my friends would say that something was wrong with my meter because one person could not use that much gas. I just paid my bill, but I realized that it was a struggle.
Well, a month before I got The Secret I finally called the gas company and asked for an evaluation. I found out that the remote reading that the gas company was using was different from what my actual meter said. The technician that came to change out my meter said that he would take the meter in for evaluation, but that the difference in the remote reading and my reading did not mean that I had been overcharged. I went on feeling like I had been losing money that I would never get back.
Then I read The Secret. When I read The Secret I was having a hard time making ends meet. I kept telling myself that I was wealthy and that I had all the money I needed. Then one night I discovered that my telephone had been turned off for non-payment. I was humiliated, tired, and frustrated. I then remembered that I was living my life according to The Secret. At that point I got out of bed and went online to view my natural gas bill. I am not sure what told me to go look. To my surprise I found that I had a $574.00 credit on my account. I just started praising the Lord for the help that I had received. I knew then that the Universe was looking after me.
The next day I went online to view my natural gas account again and noticed that my credit had gone up from $574.00 to $608. I called the company and they told me that I had been overcharged. The lady said that the company would send a check to me within the week. That is not the end. I not only received the $608, but I received $125 that I had put down for a deposit on my gas utilities two years ago. This money allowed me to pay the overdue phone bill and some other bills.
I know it is my belief in The Secret that brought the money to me. Even as I write this story I believe that I will receive more money just because I believe in my story enough to want to share it with others. I am not a person who writes out testimonies for others in these cases. However I had to write to show my faith. Just amazing!
