This past Sunday, Matt and Kate Tichon along with Rollie and Tammy Brinker shared their financial story--from unwise decision making and upside down living to watching God provide as they followed His financial principles.
Tonight we will be trying an online prayer session for our church. To participate follow this link at 8:30pm CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE PRAYER SESSION You can watch and pray along you can also type your prayers and comments in the chat section. If you have specific things that you would like us to pray about you can visit the site early and leave your request in the chat log. See you tonight.
Ok people. Let's just dive in and attempt to answer the following question(s):
How much do you need? If you were to strip away all the extras, where could you draw the line financially? Then, based on what you need, how much extra do you have?
If you're like me, you've now created a scenario where there is one car, everyone in the family is eating rice and beans, the thermostat turns back to 55 at night and up to a toasty 60 during the day, we all buy our clothes at the thrift store and the cable has been traded for rabbit ears. Even without taking those "drastic measures" the point has been made. There is extra and it's more than I thought.
So, Do you have extra? If so, how will you give generously out of it?
Loving the discussion that's been flowing from this LO$T series. If you're new to the blog, check out last weeks post here. Yes, you can still comment on previous post and have it count towards this weeks resource drawing.
Speaking of this week... Andy challenged us to start viewing our money the way God does; As a Tool, Test & Trademark. Please view the video clip below and then comment on the following question: How can you use the money and stuff that God has given you as tools to make an eternal impact in someone else's life?
We are going to be trying something new soon -- an online live prayer session. What do you think? Below is a test page of some recorded stuff, but it would look just like this only we would be talking to you live.
Yesterday Andy left us with a challenge, "record all of you spending for the next six weeks." Why? Because it's important for us to know where our money is going! Finances should never be an area where we look at things and say, "well, it seems to me...".
So, do you already do this? If so, how? Quicken or some other software? Notebook paper? If just starting this week, how are you planing on doing it?
