Learning to be smart

11.04.2009

I am discovering more and more that I have a lot to learn. And along with that, I am learning the areas that I am severely lacking faith and that realization is tough. Currently, I am trying to figure out how Andrew and I can better budget our money. We're trying to financially smart and that is more often than not easier said than done. It seems to be every time we're catching up and being able to save a little bit more, something comes up. And that is actually helping to increase my faith in that particular area. God is constantly teaching me things that I'm not sure I wanted to learn in the first place, but praise Him. Each and everyday I'm learning to be a more faithful servant, a better steward of my resources and more trusting. He has blessed Andrew and myself with more then we could ever dream of or ask for. So why in the world can it be so hard after seeing all of these blessings to have a little more faith in money and job situations? The answer; the flesh. I let the world and the enemy get into my head. Again, I have to learn that trials and sufferings happens in order to bring glory to God's name.

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. --1 Peter 4:12-14

So although the pruning season can be a difficult one, I am ready to learn and in the end be more faithful. God is good no matter the season, situation or circumstance. How in the world can I question Him and His ways and what He is doing on my life? That answer; simple, I can't.
