A few weeks ago I read a wonderful post by Ilex Bien-Aime. The post was a candid discussion of debt and how it is way past time to get your money together. (Read it here. The piece will bless you.) And today I had one of those moments. I was totally frustrated. The plumbing in the house messed up again. And honestly, I was tired. I was tired of worrying about a new bill. I was tired of getting a plan in place and having yet another thing knock me off kilter. But it was my mama that put it all in perspective for me. She said, "Have you talked to God about it?" I said, "Nope, I'm a little mad at Him right now." (Quick shaking your head. You've been there. If not, I will save you a seat.) But my mama was persistent. She said "talk to Him anyway. The same God that had you painting rooms green, can certainly help you out now? I'll let Him know you'll be talking to Him soon." Ha! I have to laugh out loud at that. My mom referenced a particularly dark moment in my life and all I had to trust in was God. And guess what, He showed up and showed out. So that same God is still on the throne today. So while I may be frustrated by my fiscal mess. I still have much to be thankful for. Thank you, mama, for reminding me of that.
