How to Have Peace When You Are Broke

Recently I was asked to speak at the event, Coffee Conversations, at my local church, Woodland Hills Family Church in Branson, MO. The event was about gratitude and celebrating what God has done in our lives. I have so much to be grateful for but one area in particular are my finances. Normally when you hear someone say that, you might think they were blessed with lots of money…not exactly, in my case.What the Lord has blessed me with is a peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7), even though I am broke. My savings account has been at $0 for the last couple years and right now my checking account has less than $50.

And to add more icing onto the cake to those stories I shared in the video, (so if you didn’t watch it, stop and watch it right now) after speaking I received a total of $260 in donations and then just a few days later the Lord blew me away once again. I owed a friend $1500 for a business loan she had given me and I received a random text message from her that I no longer had to pay her back. In one brief moment God forgave a $1500 debt. Only God!!

I’m grateful…even though I am broke in the world’s eyes…that I am actually truly rich because I have a eternal Father that promises to supply all my needs (Philippians 4:19). He has shown Himself faithful time and time again (Deuteronomy 7:9). All I need to do is continue to trust Him (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Will you join me in truly trusting the Lord deeply in the area of finances?

If this post blessed you then please pass it along to someone else so they can be blessed too.
