Cassy pulled over and pushed the speed dial on her phone.
"KS 91, how can I help you?"
"Hi, I’m Cassy; I want to make a reservation for the boat cruise."
"I’m sorry, it just sold out."
Cassy started to cry, “I really want...ed to go, and there are no spots left?"
"Well, there is some good news; we are going to have a contest for a few open spots next week. Keep listening for more details.”
Cassy wiped her eyes, “Cool, thank you!"
The following week Cassy was driving home from work when she heard the following commercial. "Did you miss out on the cruise? We have five spots open. Just be the seventh caller on Thursday and Friday when we read a verse from the Bible, and if you can correctly name that book,you will get an all expense paid cruise with Mercy Kids leaving from Miami, Florida. Just be the seventh caller, name that book, and you can cruise with Mercy Kids."
On Thursday Cassy was listening to the DJ read, "It's time for our Mercy Kids give-away. Are you ready, what book does this verse come from? 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not lean on your own understanding.' The seventh caller with the right book wins the cruise," said the DJ as they started a song.
The song ended, "This is KS 91 who's this?"
"My name is Cassy."
"Here's the verse again, 'trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not lean on you own understanding.' What book of the Bible is that from?"
Ding, ding, ding, ding went a bell, "Cassy, You won! What do you have to say?"
Cassy started to cry, “Cool, I really wanted to go, I can't wait."
As the nest song started to play, "Stay on the line, Cassy, so we can get your information."
