While I love my life as a loving housewife and loving homeschooling momma, I sometimes am blessed to also still be a consulting loving Audiologist. And today, I was blessed with 3 patients. This helps with birthdays coming up (everyone in the house but me) and gas money for running around, etc. So work is a blessing to us. But more of a blessing is God’s blessing of timing and allowing the blessing at just the right time.
I got to thinking that I have Christian brothers and sisters who struggle with money. And I heard a great teaching that said struggles with money are management problems or problems with God’s provision. As in, either we spend poorly and that is the problem or we ate not getting enough and that is the problem. Or both. And to the not getting enough, it could be three things: not working at the best position you are capable, not enough faith and prayer, or you have a lesson to learn about depending on God. And that teaching is sound.
I reflect that I used to have a pride issue and work harder, more jobs and earn more but simultaneously had a spending problem. But I do not remember ever not tithing. 10% to God first. And I always had faith but still struggled because there was a spending problem and pride. So when my pride broke and I adopted a Spirit of humbleness and my faith was still there and my Spirit of self-control helped with my spending, now I do not want for anything. We don’t have enough to go to Disney, but I am content with whatever God provides and He always provides what we need when we needed. ❤
