Reflections: The Power of a Praying Wife Day 3



I like money (who doesn't)....I like having it, I like spending it, if there is enough I don't even mind sharing or saving it.....but I hate handling it.  Dealing with it.  Worrying about it. 

In our marriage, Norman makes the money and I deal with it.  I don't like it, but it is what it is.  So yesterday, I prayed for a better attitude about dealing with it.  I am praying that I become a better money manager.  I pray that God will give ME and my husband discernment in our spending habits. 

Starting today, I will be praying before making any extra purchase, even if I consider it a need.  Stick strictly to the budget in all areas barring an emergency.  I am also praying that God will bless my efforts to supplement my husband's income. 

Keep praying!

my prayers are similar to yours in this area. I've not proven to be a good steward of our money so Mike is the handler at our house, not out of want to do it but out of necessity so we don't go bankrupt. We also are praying before any large purchase and sometimes going without a need for awhile to allow the money to actually become available. We refuse under any circumstances (baring extreme medical issues) to use a credit card or go further into debt...this is not God's will for our lives to live in debt even though it goes against everything the world says we should do.
I pray with you Carrie...for your family as well as mine!!
God bless your efforts and cause your family to prosper :)
