Before we got married, Nicole sat me down for a serious talk about money. When I found out how much money she made… I could hear Olivia Newton-John singing, “I love you, I honestly love you!”
But, Nicole had been a single mom and she was really smart about money. She wanted us to pay off our house, first. But, that meant sacrifices. Specifically, that meant vacationing in a tent instead of a nice hotel.
Seriously…a TENT? Like Moses and the Tabernacle?
But she was insistent! I’m thinking; “This lady makes bank and she’s gonna take Crank to stay in a place that’s gonna stank?”
So, there we were at the KOA Campground, surrounded by all these fancy RVs in our Beverly Hillbillies tent with our window air-conditioning unit poking out! Lol
But, looking back, I’m so glad we did! The money we saved went toward paying off our mortgage, early. Which meant, we were able to sell our house for a profit when God told us to move.
It was the beginning of God’s “Circle of Prosperity”.
If you’re struggling financially, I want you to know that it won’t always be this way. God has BIG plans for you! He has a prosperous future all mapped out!
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)
Take good care of whatever God has given you, NOW, so you can really enjoy what MORE He has in store!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
