No one has to read this. I'm just venting

Friday, July 05, 2013

I am so upset. Why do these things always happen to us? We were so anxious to have this huge debt paid off and were planning to use the extra money to get caught up on house payments and now find out that we still owe $1500 on it. That will put everything behind again We don't need any more stress. I know this will play havoc with my eating too. I was already up some this morning. We just can't seem to win no matter what we do. I've been trying to put everything in God's hands, but I'm starting to feel like Job. If God is trying to teach us a lesson I wish we would hurry up and learn it. I just feel like running away somewhere and never coming back. I just don't know what to do but I can't take a whole lot more.

    God is good and the devil is bad. Jesus came that we might have abundant life and the devil, the thief, only comes to steal, kill and destroy. If he can get your focus off of how good Jesus is he can steal your peace, your joy and your victory. God said in Philippians 4:19 that He would supply ALL your needs ACCORDING to HIS RICHES in glory by Christ Jesus. God doesn't run out; He doesn't run short and He never lacks. Your provision is not based on your ability to obtain it; it is based on His ability to provide it! You can count on Him to be faithful to do what He says.

From sun up to sun down things can change , in the hands of God . The Lord
wants you to have the best . keep your faith ,just believe God is working on it.
things happen behind the scenes . Keep the words , say them out loud , faith comes by hearing the word , hear the words out loud , keep on repeating , until it drops in the spirit.

keep on saying The Lord is on my side !!! What can man do to me ????

we owed IRS over 14,000 and medical over 6,000 over 5 years of struggling .
God Has set us free . emoticon

    That does sound frustrating. I know what it's like to not have anything and be so far behind you can't see daylight. But I also know how great it feels when you're finally out from under that heavy load. Hang in there. I'll keep you in my prayers in the meantime. Try not to let it get you down. Feeling discouraged and depressed are not good for your health. Just think back to BEFORE you found out you still owe $1500. Weren't you feeling pretty good then? Glad that you were finally free? Well, nothing has really changed since then except your AWARENESS of what you owe. And that's in your mind. You evidently still owed it, but you weren't aware that you owed it so you felt good about it. Well, hang onto that good feeling because that awareness will be for real before you know it. I know it seems like it takes forever, but truly it doesn't. Time goes by so fast--you'll be feeling free again soon FOR REAL. And in the meantime, put on some upbeat music and sing. Nothing chases away a bad mood quicker than happy music. And I read somewhere that it's impossible to be depressed if you keep singing. I don't understand how that works, but I've found it to be true. Hang in there. You're worth the effort and you'll get through this and be healthy besides.

  I really don't know what is going on but believe me our Lord is not trying to each you a lesson it is the devil trying to get you to get mad at God and to step out of faith and love.

Don't give that devil the satisfaction of falling for his evil tricks and deceptions because the truth is the devil is a liar and the father of all lies.

Do you your best to focus on Jesus who is the word and lay claim to His words of promise to be your provider and that He provides all and start praising and thanking Him for delivering you from all the pressure of not enough money because the grace of Jesus is more then enough to the point of over flowing and you will end up being filled with His joy and peace which does pass all earthly understanding and just believe and receive all of His love that He has for you, after all, you are His beloved. emoticon emoticon

I am so very sorry to hear how upset and disappointed and concerned you are about your finances, that STINKS! Don't let it ruin your weight loss efforts, though. The food never helps, not one little bit.

Praying for you!

    Gosh I remember having twenty bucks to make it two weeks to support me and my son ... don't know now how we made it through for a year like that but we did .... you can do it again ... don't fret it is just life and we deal with what is dealt to us .... sure we worry but I always figured it could be a lot worse .... please don't fall off just because of a little setback ... you are just disappointed but I'll bet you will still have a wonderful day ... put a smile on your face -- say oh well -- kiss your DH and have a splendid day anyway !! Smiles make good wrinkles on your face ! Roc
