Got job offer just before promotion – what do I do?

I just received a job offer from a job across the country offering a 50% increase from my original pay, but I just also got a promotion for 8% increase from my current employer where I know my manager tried hard to work for. Finances aren’t good at my current employer at the moment, but that could change next quarter. I really enjoy my current job but I didn’t quite get the title or salary that I was hoping for. I’m also starting some new projects in my current job that I’m pretty excited about and would feel guilty for leaving with these new projects just starting and just after receiving a promotion after waiting a while. I don’t have much time to decide, so I’m torn.

Any guidance?
