As you probably all know now, I love to help people. Sometimes, I even put myself aside just to help others. I think about people more than I think about myself.
Now let’s talk about money. Money, money, money! I am pretty sure that I am not the only one here who got a full credit card to pay, right? If I can give you the advice that someone once told me: “Always pay the minimum due”. It was good for me to know. But the funny part is that, I never miss money to give away. I know some are probably thinking: “How can you give money to people if you got debts to pay already?” and some would say: “Stop acting like you are rich and pay your damn bills”. You are all right about it, but I have tried and failed. I started to use my credit card in this period of my life where alcohol was all I needed and since, I have never been able to pay it completly. I would be paying 100$ and take away 150$ to give to someone. I have been working and I could have clean my credit for this new year like I promised myself but there is always a but. The only way I could have pay my credit was if I would think about ME and only ME, but it is hard to be selfish during holidays. So guess what? I failed!
Deep inside of me, I know that having a big heart is not always good or easy. But I believe that God knows my heart and sees every little action I do, and that He will bless me somehow. I am not saying that money will fall from the sky but what I am saying is that His timing is always the best. 2018 started and my credit was still full but I have receive something that money can’t buy, PEACE. And today, I am thankful for this blessing I have receive and all I want is to share it with you.
I don’t know what is your financial situation, what is stressing you right now, what is trying to steal your joy but let me tell you that God is working. Even if you can’t see the work, believe me He is working on your financial situation, your peace of mind and your joy.
For many years, I thought that the Lord gave up on me because nothing was clear in my life. I was depressed and felt like I didn’t matter to anyone. But today, I know and I can testify that He never gave up on me. He was there in every situation of my life and I am the one who gave up on Him. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for His grace, let me be honest: I would be probably dead.
We are always asking God to bless us with this and that, but do we actually take time to thank Him for our lives? Think about it like this, someone out there is praying to have the life you living right now. They don’t care if it comes with some debts, all they want is to have a home, a bed to sleep on, some food on the table, a job, family and friends and someone to tell them that: “It is going to be OK, The Lord got your back”.
