Hello, friends and family. I hope you all are having a wonderful day. I thought I’d just talk to you during my lunch break. It’s a short testimony. One of my favorite passages from the Bible is Proverbs 3:5,6, which reads,
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways achknowledge Him, and He shalll direct your paths.”
At age 25, I can say that there is still so much that I don’t understand. For example, this year was the first year that I did taxes. Also, for the last four weeks I have been attending a financial class at my church in hopes of better understanding how to handle my finances on my own. Before the class, I was concerned because throughout grade school and college no professor bothered to teach me how to handle money. Ironic isn’t it. Apparently there is an uncertain rule somewhere that says, “You’re on your own.”
Before the first class, I got down on my knees and talked to my good friend above the clouds. I was honest with God by telling Him that I didn’t have the financial world all figured out. Honestly, who does? I prayed that I would take something from the course; that I would absorb everything from it. Somewhere in that prayer I said, “Lord, please don’t let me fall on my face”.
My Heavenly Father must have been listening, because I have thoroughly enjoyed Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course. I’m not quite ready to buy a house or anything, but I can say that I have more knowledge and wisdom now then I did before the class. God helped me, just as he gave King Solomon wisdom when he too asked for it.
I encourage all of you, friends and family, if you’re ever uncertain about how to do something, pray about it, because God is the bearer of all knowledge. Whatever dark paths you’re facing, let Him be your light and direct you.
Have a good day, and God Bless.😊😊😊
