My Personal Experience:
From the day I moved out on my own, to now, I can’t count the number of times money, or lack there of, caused stress in my life. Yet I have no clear memories of these difficult times. I just know they happened then, and could happen again at any moment. It doesn’t take much for the average family to go from a lifestyle of comfort to financial crisis. Sickness, unemployment, and tragedy happen every day.
Will it happen to me? I don’t know. But here’s one thing I do know. God is in control, and although we don’t always understand the plan – He has a plan and it’s an awesome one.
Although I have seen my share of difficult financial times, I must have had everything I needed, because here I am. And there you are, we are still here, the world is still spinning, and God’s love remains everlasting. His word remains pure truth, as written below.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 6:31-33 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!
Verse 33 above is an important step. Maybe you haven’t yet fully jumped in, seeking the Kingdom of God above all else. Maybe it seems a little different and your feeling a bit unsure. Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Maybe a different approach is exactly what you need.
Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University may be the best place to start. I attended this course with my wife last year and I feel like I learned so much from it. It’s definitely worth checking out.
