I have mentioned a few times about the decision that Chase and I have made to become more strict with our finances and work to be debt free. It’s exciting to think about the result of not being weighed down each month with those bills. But, its intimidating and at the moment frustrating. Currently with birthdays, holidays and what not approaching it feels like there is a need for money, the money that we are trying so hard to really be disciplined with. I see money going but it feels like it’s not coming in. I know that God will provide, I have no doubt of this, I just have to remind myself sometimes. Today I came across a poem for times when we are discouraged and it really hit home with me about this issue. I love when God brings things to our attention just when we need to hear it most!
Never Be Discouraged by Helen Steiner Rice
There is really nothing we need to know or even try to understand.
If we refuse to be discouraged and trust God’s guiding hand.
So take heart and meet each minute with faith in God’s great love,
Aware that every day of life is controlled by God above…
And never dread tomorrow or what the future brings,
Just pray for strength and courage and trust God in all things.
And never grow discouraged be patient
and just wait for “God never comes too early and He never comes too late!”
