January 18, 2019: three years ago I hit a financial low. I was spending more money than I was making. And making so many bad money choices. During that season I took out a quick loan. I was desperate for money and I didn’t want to ask anyone for help. So I got approved for a loan. But because of my bad credit the interest rate was horrible! I didn’t know about interest rates and all that financial talk back then. So Anywhoo after I got the loan and it was time to pay it back I struggled even more! I was borrowing from peter to pay Paul and just struggling to make ends meet.
About two years ago during the faith and fitness journey we started doing a financial plan with the calendar and because I was the leader of the group I felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to learn about finances. So I started watching financial videos on YouTube and then I took all my bills and put them in my war room and asked God to help me get out of debt. I told him I was sick and tired of struggling, i told him I was sick of careless spending, sick of living pay check to pay check. I prayed for overflow. And multiple streams of income. I also signed up to pay my tithes at church. I have direct deposit pay! I told God I trusted his way, his mathematics and his timing. Here we are two years later and I just got the noticed that this debt has been paid off!! Lord thank you!! Won’t he do it!! I know I may sound crazy all the time. But truly giving things to God. Sitting still and being in tune with the Holy Spirit. God will lead you! Was this easy? No! Do I have to sacrifice? Yes Is it worth it? Absolutely! Next month I’ll be done paying off an old medical credit card bill, then I’ll tackle my credit card...then your girl will be pretty much #debtfree of credit card debt. Then phase two is paying off my mortgage 🙌🏾🙏🏽 I’m so encouraged! When I saw that YOU DID IT!! I was like thank you Jesus!! God we did it!! To God be the glory! I hope me sharing will inspire you to give your debts to the lord! Spend time in his presence and let him be your financial advisor. He’s the best! And he will lead you to the best! Trust him! He’s with you! I love you have an amazing Friday!!
