Operation “Get My Life Together”: Zero Based Budget
The other night, Big Daddy and I sat down and had a chat. I told him how I was feeling and that I was tired of serving two masters….God and money. I felt like we were drowning in debt and I am tired of it. I’m tired of worrying and feeling like I’m being controlled by it. I have no freedom when I am in debt.
We CHOOSE to be done.
When I researched a zero based budget….I thought that the concept was insane. After further looking into it, I began to see the positives of it and it forced me to take a long hard look at our money and where it goes. Then, I left fear seep in….the fear of embarrassment, of feeling like I’m upside down in our finances (have more debt/bills then paycheck), and then it felt like an elephant sat squarely on my chest and I kept hearing “there is no hope…you are trapped…just keep on keepin’ on…you are not hurting anyone.”
The great thing is that I CAPTURED that thought and I REMEMBERED Truth! When I have Jesus….and I do….there is ALWAYS hope. Did He “ordain” my stupidity? I don’t think so. Did He “allow” my stupidity? Yep and now we are reaping what we have sown. Natural consequences to our stupidity.
Its a NEW day. Its a NEW dawn. Its time to let HIM take control over my finances. I know that it is time because Big Daddy is on board! Stay tuned to our journey of becoming debt free!
