Managing my money
I really want to be more God honoring with my money. He gave it to me, so I want to be a good steward. Give more. Save more. There is no reason that I can’t do that! But it means that there MUST be less needless spending. Oh, and did I tell you, I’ve got a kid in college. Yesterday I was having a moment of how I should have been a better mom and saved more for her college, which is completely TRUE, however, there were many years that we were in survival mode, and she has had many experiences in her life (both of us have) that I cannot put a price tag on.
So, I think I am going to go with Quicken, unless someone tells me some other program that is FABULOUS!
Saving money doesn’t sound all that glamorous but not worrying about money, and being able to give generously, really does! So I’ve got a plan! TIME TO EXECUTE! Praying for guidance on where to spend and where to cut back.
Deut 8:17-18 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
