My income always seemed to cover just the bills, with some occasionally left over for food. There were times that I didn't eat to pay bills. It's been a struggle and stressful. But late in college, something happened. Marie's and my relationship hit bottom. Ask either of us, and we will tell you that it was a very painful time for us. But God took that pain and in it He built a foundation for trusting and relying on Him. Marie and I both healed, and I began trusting God with more of my life.
I was making enough to save some money and buy a ring, and I did just that. But shortly after Marie and I were married, I lost my job, and money was more of a worry than ever, especially as I was about to head to the seminary. But, I leaned on that foundation fo trust in God and He has been faithful. Although money has been tight, we have never missed a payment, and we have enough food to eat. Every time a bill has come up and we didn't have the money to cover it, the money has come from somewhere. It's not always easy to trust God, but I know that a life dependent on Him is a life more full of blessing than a life of comfort and ease.
I pray that God ever increases my faith to trust more in Him. He has shown me He is faithful, and I desire to trust in Him not only with my finances, but my life. I pray that He helps me be bold and courageous to not fear those that can hurt and harm me in this world as I proclaim His Word. I also challenge you, what ways in your life can you/do you need to trust God. He is faithful, and if you give it over to Him, He will take care of you.
