Hello sweeties, how are you today? Its a calm day at work and I have wanted to share this for so long.
I call it the 10 COMMANDMENTS TO FINANCIAL HEALING, I don't mean to sound too religious but this has worked for me so far and I believe it would help someone make better decisions. I am not where I want to be yet but I am definitely not where I used to be.
Looking back, I think I deserve a pat on the back because I know I have become a better person and it has been because I study a lot and I follow the books (The word of God).
Lemme not mary-go-round, lets get to it.
COMMANDMENT 1Put God first in your finances.
As I grew older and started earning money, I decided I would commit to tithing. So I did! With a fixed income, I decided I would trust God. Amazingly, my income would stretch and I never went totally broke.
After learning this simple lesson, I decided I would remain faithful in the area of tithing and to be a blessing to others no matter what.
The thought of giving up money can be very fearful, I know...been there, done that!. I questioned whether I would be able to meet my needs, been that I had to make financial decisions early in life.
When I speak to people about tithing, many are scared that they would be unable to make it if they commit to God. But the reality is, you can't afford not to! God tells us in Malachi 3:10
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it."You have to trust him in advance. You can't give to God and go hungry.
Deciding to trust God with my finances is the best decision I have ever made and it requires a faithful commitment to God.
When you decide to trust God and tithe, there may be distractions that get you off track but BEWARE because its only a test.
Stay true to your commitment and you will see God's blessings in your life.
Do I have any witness? Have you been a tither? What has been your experience so far?
Please tell me, I would love to know.
Watch this space for commandment 2.
Thanks for reading, I love you from the bottom pot of my heart.
Hugs & kisses
He gives strength to the weak. And those who have no might, He increases strength.
