Be Honest.. Where are You?

I received a credit card months ago. I thought it would be great to have in case I had an emergency. But, slowly I found myself using it for things that I used to trust God for, including emotional spending. I found security in a unsecure credit card. Not only was it a set up to keep me in debt, but it made me secure in the wrong things. This caused me not to trust God with every area of my life. I found myself avoiding prayer about the situation because I did not want to hear God tell me to stop or to cut up the card.

This past weekend I had to be honest with God and myself. I was not mature enough to handle the credit card (OUCH!) I thought I had the spending under control. I had to be honest and search where I really was with God. Soon as I repented for not trusting him completely, he turned around today and gave me what I did not deserve. He used someone to take my family to the store to get everything we needed and I mean EVERYTHING! It was a OVER FLOW!! I miss this place with him. The great thing about his blessings is that I don’t have to pay them back with interest! He’s God like that!!! He is always waiting to pick us back up. I pray that you allow God in those secret places. Be honest about where you are…He is willing and able to bring you out! Just trust him.

Verse of Meditation: Proverbs 28:13 (GNT)

You will never succeed in life if you try to hide your sins. Confess them and give them up; then God will show mercy to you.

I'm a dedicated wife and mother of a blended family of five children. I started a personal relationship with Jesus Christ on March 2, 2013. From that day forward, my life has forever changed! I love Jesus and I have a passion for helping women of all ages and walks of life. I have been married to my loving husband, Michael since 2005 . We have experienced God's unmerited favor on our lives. However, It has not always been easy. Just like other married couples, we have faced many obstacles: In-law issues, financial issues, blended family issues, infidelity, cheating, etc. In 2011, we were near a divorce and our marriage was nearly over, but God had other plans for our union. He has restored our marriage, healed, and delivered us both. We are now SYMBIS Marriage Counselors and the proud founders of A2GG (Adding 2 God’s Gifts (Adding2godsgifts.com) A2GG is a sports development and mentor-ship program for the youth. To conclude, we enjoy attending church and helping families overcome the strategies of the enemy.
