Preparing for the Blessing

We all have different phases in our life.  A time of great content, waiting, suffering, discipline – whatever you call that season in your life, we always go through specific journeys that mold us to be better and deepen our intimacy with God.

As for me, I can call this season of my life, the time of outpour. As God has sustained me in the times of pruning, then, waiting, now I ask God to prepare me for the blessing.

At the start of this year, God made me see how much I need to improve in the area of stewardship in terms of my finances. Having no job for almost 5 months now made me realize that I can really control my spending if I really want to. I’m not the type of person who likes to do accounting of expenses or anything related to that. I follow a simple budget plan, then, that’s it. I can’t handle anything beyond that. And, that’s why I don’t like monthly bills. 🙂

Having no income, I have to be wise in my spending. I am thankful that God has been providing my day to day needs. And I’m thankful that I didn’t have any pending debts. God dealt with me on debts before and I’m so glad He did! Here’s my story about it -> You gotta have faith!

As I look forward to an exciting journey – new place, new job, new opportunities, I just pray that I will be a better steward this time. I believe that having no job for a few months is also part of God’s preparation for me for the blessings in the future. He allowed me to assess what really matters to Him – and that’s where my finances should go.

Give me neither poverty nor riches!
    Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.
For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
    And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.

Proverbs 30:8-9

Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with the best part of everything you produce.
