Money problems?

I feel led to write a quick post on something that has been really near and dear to my heart.

Anxiety and fear.

There’s a type of anxiety and fear when it comes to phobias but this type of anxiety and fear out weighs them all. Fear and anxiety of the future.

One of the top fears most humans face is finances or lack there of. How in the world do I pay my bills when I don’t generate that much income? How am I going to get through this month and feed my kids or put gas in my car? budget

Have you been there too? You know there are many ways to make money, but the promise that I am reminded is that we are not to worry about tomorrow. I know easier said then done right? Check out what God says about this in Matthew 6:34:

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Jesus, who had no place to call His home, who had no pillow for his head, who didn’t have a income was telling US  “not worry for tomorrow”. Does that mean we don’t make preparations for bettering our future? Not at all. We can’t expect money to just drop in our laps. But fearing and worrying about it will only cripple you. Jesus was saying that God would provide our needs. Yes we have wants: new cars, new warddrobe, maybe a Starbucks coffee, out to eat for lunch, the latest video game for our kids etc. But He says He will supply all our NEEDS (Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet {SUPPLY} all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.) 

All I can say is I don’t know how we make it each month based on my husband’s low salary, but GOD IS SO GOOD! He has provided us ways to make side income (legally promise ) and has provided our needs for our kids, whether its hammie down clothes or just the right set of toys etc from family. If you can truly surrender this anxiety and fear that was never yours to begin with, you will notice a smile on your face more. You will notice you can sleep at night. You will notice God supplying your NEEDS. You also might see Him leading you in a different type of job!  I close with one of the MANY promises from God to us about Anxiety and fear…

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

God promises that if you give this worry and fear to Him, He will take it and in return give you a perfect peace. A peace so amazing you won’t allow the fear and anxiety to surface because you know without a doubt HE WILL PROVIDE! Just remember as a believer in Jesus, that HE IS BIGGER than that giant you are facing! Praying for you reading this that you will experience this perfect peace each day! God is so good!
