I know what broke feels like. Being in debt. Having that knot around your throat. The tension on your shoulders. Witnessing that insecure look in your spouse’s eyes.
I know what student loans, credit card debt, and medical bills taste like. It’s disgusting.
I know what eating rice and beans for a week straight is.
I know what having a four-year college degree and no job security sounds like. You too, believed in the system.
Perhaps, you’re not in poverty level. You have a decent job; living from pay check to pay check. From the outside, you look alright. You manage not to show much struggle. But on the inside, you know something is terribly wrong. You’re losing hope, the dream, and the desire to even try to beat this thing.
I know this mother load of stress takes a toll on your whole core of being human. It sure did on mine. My attitude, character, integrity, and security was everywhere.
But, I managed to survive. To stay connected to a fountain of promises. Promises of hope, opportunity, and blessing.
I don’t want to sound too hokey-pokey. But the bible is full of gold nuggets that can flip your life around.
No, you wont find a $100 dollar bill when you flip to Proverbs 16:16. But you’ll find:
How much better to get wisdom than gold. To get understanding is to be chosen further than silver.
What can you take from reading this? Does it speak to you?
You won’t get rich from reading the whole list of proverbs on prosperity. But you’ll have a rich mind, rich ideas, and rich thoughts. It’s the beginning to wealth — a by product of wisdom and understanding.
This helped me a lot. I want to share more of it. Let’s continue this conversation with another verse next time. #legacyseries
