Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

I keep saying that I have never been more broke in my life than I am right now and I’ve never made more money. There’s a reason. I haven’t always been wise with the way I spend my money.

I have been working on some things, I asked God to give me guidance. And I still go a little crazy.

I’m up for a promotion at work. Same job, same title, higher grade, higher pay. I struggle because in some ways I don’t think I deserve it. If I haven’t been wise with the money He has given me, why should He trust me with more?

I have really tried to get it together. I am working on it, planned out a budget, but I can’t help but really hope for the relief that this raise will give us (me & Miss P) based on our current budget.

In all this I will be honest, I have focused a little more about money than I should. And I started thinking about the scripture that says that we can’t serve to idols. There has NEVER been a time in my life when God hasn’t provided for me. I don’t think He is going to stop now.

So Lord, I am giving this to You. You know my needs, You know what I deserve and thankfully you never give it to me.

I am supposed to get this promotion at the end of this month. Please pray for me.

Matthew 24 "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.
