It was that time again, time to gather and pay bills. This is not my favorite time of the month but it does bring a few things to the surface…
Thanks for joining me for Wednesday’s Word with Trench Classes United.
As I was pulling all of the bills out and beginning to record them in the register, both online and hard copy – I know who does that anymore? I do! 😊
Anyway, there are times when it gets to be a bit overwhelming, and this was one of those times, where there was almost too much month compared to our money. I glanced thru the two credit card statements and conviction washed over me as I realized I didn’t even remember what half of the Amazon charges were for! That’s a problem. I thought back to when I had gone on a spending fast and realized it was time to do that again, to be content with all that we have instead of reaching for more.
I determined in my heart to pay off the credit cards, only keep one, and truly go for the whole debt-free thing…but then again, rising utilities, house payment, HOA fees, car insurance, health insurance, life insurance, insurance for insurance 😊 😊 it all adds up, and let’s not forget about gas for the car to get to work to pay for it all.
As if pulled out of a trance, the words of a worship song that was playing beckoned me to look up and let go and just press in to the truth that Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe…and I remembered where my provision comes from, financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually and that with His help we would get it all paid. Just as sin leaves a crimson stain, spending can leave us with remorse. Thank you Father that You paid it all and will continue to be my provider, my protector.
