Day 1976 – It Still Brings Tears To My Eyes

You know finances are a regular topic here, mostly because God has taught and continues to teach us A LOT. (Read that as – God has taken us through some rough financial times.)

Today, I’m catching up on emails and tasks. One of the big things was our bills. I was a little nervous because we had a few big expenses over the last two weeks. So as I’m moving all the money around, I see the balance of the credit card and I’m thinking, oh great, there’s no way, guess I’ll have to leave a balance. I decided to not put money in a few accounts, our biggest thing is not holding a balance on the card.

After I did the transfer, I looked at the actual total balance and I had about 13 bucks left over after paying the full balance.

That’s when the tears started. I sit here and think, how can I STILL doubt that God will take care of us? How can I doubt that He’ll provide for something He’s commanded (“The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.” Proverbs 22:7)??? But God (two of the most beautiful word combinations!) is rich in grace to me and warmly reminded me (again….77×7, am I right?), He’s got this. What’s interesting about this particular “session” paying the bills is that I actually read the verse and quote I have on both of my check books. And I put my trust in God’s truth and not my fear of “making ends meet.”

Here’s what I have on my checkbooks:

Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
lest I be full and deny you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
and profane the name of my God.
Proverbs 30:8-9

I will not trust in riches but in Him who richly provides. – Andy Stanley

Be satisfied in your Daily Bread! (Me)

I find I have trouble trusting in just my daily bread. I want to trust in the savings account. I want to see the balance growing. But my daily bread (at least for right now) is a credit card at $0….not a growing savings account for the things I don’t need yet.

Man I’m glad God doesn’t give up on me and my silly human fears. 🙂
