It’s become a lot easier not to want things anymore. The whole mindset change has set in. I never was one to need the ‘latest and greatest’ but it hasn’t been hard at all to not buy something. My spending habits have changed!!! Whoda thunk it??
Now I promised to share my FPU experience with you… and that means good AND bad, ups AND downs, etc…
Im not a fan of letting the world know our financial business but I want you to have a picture in your head to really hit home. I’ve realized we have a lot less debt than most people… but its not about anyone else, its where we are at and how we are changing our outcome. We all have our own story and its our attitude and our drive as to how we accomplish it. I dont doubt that we are exactly where God wants us to be financially. He is using this to mold us. I cant tell you exactly how but I feel it!! Weve been through some rough weeks and some great weeks and it always boils down to putting God first.
All 3 possibilities of getting a month ahead have fallen through. Mr Men did not pull through. And Im okay with that because 1.) It’s not our timing, it’s God’s perfect timing (Dont you remember as a kid your parents telling you ‘no’- or now you are having to tell your own kids ‘no’ or ‘not right now’. I dont like telling Jaidan no but its whats best for him and I know God is looking out for me too) 2.) I need to listen to what God is telling me and keep being molded. Like I said I can totally feel it. Im a planner by nature but I need to be open to what God wants of me. Im confident in this because of the last time. It took us a year and a half to conceive Jaidan & I wouldnt change a single day that I didnt get pregnant. It brought me closer to Jared, and brought us closer to God and I found a whole new appreciation for life.
Remember this is a journey, not just a destination. We will continue to be hopefull and keep praying specifically that ‘if this is where you want us to be God, then please get our envelopes one month ahead… and if not, show Jared some other line of work. Its all for your glory that we are the people you want us to be. Amen’
