I did. Did you?

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will let you know about something.

Here is a link for an article by thepostmillenial.com that is entitled, Federal government loses $1.4 million sending money to wring accounts in 2012:  https://www.thepostmillennial.com/federal-government-loses-1-4-million-sending-money-to-wrong-accounts-in-2012/.

Did you read that article?  I hope you did.  I'll share it with you (I copied/pasted):

The Receiver General, responsible for making payments to the Government of Canada each fiscal year, lost over $1.4 million in taxpayer money from sending incorrect wire transfers and cheques.

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, the $1.4 million loss came after a “failed 2012 campaign by the Department of Public Works,” wherein they would require Canadians to submit sensitive information including bank data to accept payments from the government.

The Receiver General announced the losses in a Public Accounts notice, stating that they “misdirected direct deposits” 10,552 times.

A total of 5,713,290 was paid out incorrectly. Thankfully for the Receiver General, $4.2 million was returned. $1.4 million was permanently lost and is not expected to be recovered at any point.

Turning to electronic payments was intended to be a way for the Canadian government to move to a paperless world, aiming to make all payments electronically.

In 2013, the cost of processing an electronic payment was 69 cents less than using paper cheques.

The move to an electronic world, though, would have gone against the wishes of up to 37 percent of the country, who when asked, were “wary of surrendering” bank information to the federal government.
Wow!  That article was published January 17, 2020... but I didn't see/read it then.

Even though that year we did not have our current government group in control, some of our Canadian money was lost.

However, not like what our current Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has recently done... as I've mentioned previously.

Please realize that whenever something like this happens, I feel sad... and I even cry sometimes... and talk to God... and pray.

Thinking about that, made me think about Psalm 18:6, "In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.".

Amen! In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 

Yes, God hears me when I speak to Him... and pray to Him.

Why?

Because I belong to Him. 

Yes, I am a born again believer.

I gained salvation and everlasting life by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... repented from sin... for everyone in the world sins... and after... I got baptized... even though my parents had me baptized as a baby... who could never do any of that.

If you do this, you will become a born again Christian.

And... God will love you... forever.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
