A few months ago my husband I decided to get serious about our finances and getting out of debt. Through this process I’ve had to get more involved in the family budget. We do the budget together each month, but my husband asked me to take on the responsibilities of paying the monthly bills.
In our entire 26 years of marriage, I have never done this. To be honest, I didn’t want to be involved. To be really, super honest, I was scared to even look at it. How much do we owe? How can we make it work? What if I’m terrible at managing the household? I know, the Bible says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart…” but sometimes I get so caught up in the fear.
Do you ever do that?
When I’m afraid, I sometimes resist trusting God. I want to see my circumstances change. But maybe God wants ME to change. To be less fearful, more faith-filled. Trusting without seeing solutions is hard, but that’s the fertile soil where faith grows. God has shown me over and over that He can be trusted. So, He will be faithful this time too. I have to stop resisting the process, stop worrying, and rest assured that God is with me.
