I have always tried to keep it real here on my blog. I have shared joys, trials, struggles and everything in between. This post is one of those trials and struggles post.
Matthew 5:39 and 42 tells us "But I tell you not to resist an evil person, But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away."
The question we've been asking ourselves is, does God want us to become doormats to people who just do not care?
What most do not understand is that we do not use credit cards at all! We save up money to purchase what our family needs (not wants). So you can imagine what this has done to our finances. Our savings account is zero. We ended this week with just about $5 in the bank.
Psalm 30:5 "For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night But joy comes in the morning."
2 Timothy 2:3 "You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ."
2 Timothy 4:5 "But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."
This is what we are trying to do. It is not easy at all. I would love a month of no trouble!
