You Broke Yet?
By Pat Young
Here it is payday and your check is gone before you get the money in your
hands. A lot of us can relate to that. When I look over my debts I sometimes think
"Lord, I'll be glad when I can receive my check and spend it at my own leisure."
I realize it may take me awhile to arrive at that place but I am determined to
reach that goal. There are times when paydays go very smoothly for me and then
there are times I sit down and say, "who will I pay this time?"
arise where we have no control over them. I remember last year when I managed
to save some money and then my transmission in my van decided to go on a mission.
It left my van in bad shape. Well, I had to have it repaired. A few months later
the gas line in my car decided not to hold gas anymore. So that broke and had
to be replaced.
And then we have the situations
with our children. They can be money robbers too. Recently my daughter's wisdom
teeth decided to cause her problems. They had to be removed from her mouth. (Not
too wise in my eyes. Why didn't they have the wisdom to stay put?) Butthey are
now gone. It was another expense that had to be paid. So I found myself saying,
"when will I stop being broke?" I was quickly reminded of God's Word:
And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches
in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
repented and said, "Thank you Lord, for you have met my every need." I am not
going to look at the circumstances but look at what the Lord is doing and has
done. I am also looking at what He is going to do for my family and me.
time has passed, I still have found my self struggling with whom to pay this time
and nervously making the phone call to the debtor and saying " I will pay you
on a certain date". During those rough times, I have learned that as long as I
trust God, go to Him in faith believing, and rest in His peace, He will always
come through for me.
I was young
and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children
begging bread (Psalms 37:25).
I ask myself the question, "Am I broke yet?" No way! As long as I trust my Lord
and walk upright before Him and believe His promises are true for my family and
me, I will never be broke another day in my life!
