Are you longing to live:
- a life free from debt;
- a life free from stress caused by money worries;
- a life free from worry of not having enough?
If so, there is a simple solution. You need to learn three things:
- trust God;
- live below your means;
- and save.
After reading this, you might be sneering at these simple solutions. However, you need to really stop and consider what doing these three things will truly mean for you. God tells us He will never leave us nor forsake (Deuteronomy 31:6). God provides for all of His creation (Matthew 6:26-34). He loves you and cares for you. Have you put your trust in Him? Have you surrendered everything to Him? Remember, He owns it all (Psalms 24:1). We don’t own anything.
Living below your means will leave you extra money to save and invest. If you really want to know how much you’re spending above what you make, track your expenses. When you track everything that you spend, you will see exactly where you are spending your money and how much you are overspending each month. Use the Money Blueprint Notebook.
Next, use a Money Blueprint to take control of your spending. Remember, that a Money Blueprint is not meant to constrict you or keep you from enjoying yourself. It is meant to show you how to live below your means, how to tithe, how to save and how to invest. As an old Alka-Seltzer TV commercial used to say,”Try it you’ll like it.” The commercial continued with, “I tried it, but did not like it.” However, using a Money Blueprint will not result in you not liking it.
A Money Blueprint is going to provide you freedom. It is going to show you how much money you earn, spend, and how much you save. Try it, so that you will no longer long to live a life free from the above. You will be living a life of debt freedom, money worries, and of not having enough.
