The Budget Train

Have I mentioned on here that I love to shop?  Well, I do.  In fact, that is one of my primary reasons for needing to start (and stick to) a budget.  I buy something everyday.  Sometimes it’s just a soda from the gas station and it’s rarely anything very big, but I must buy something everyday.  As a result, I’m constantly freaking out about having enough money.  Also, it’s the reason we have so much credit card debt.  So this budget thing is really going to make a difference.  After all, Jesus said, “”No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” (Matthew 6:24).  In Jesus’ name, I will no longer let money get the best of me.  I will no longer think of my life in terms of how much money I have.  I will no longer pander to my credit cards (but I will pay them off because Jesus also said, “…Then give to Caesar what is Caesar’s…” {Luke 20:25}).  God called me to make a budget, and I give to God first from my budget.  I have faith that he will take care of me.
