Well my friends, we have been through quite a ride, haven't we?
As we creep towards another year's end, it now appears as though our blessing could truly be at hand! SUDDENLY we will get the permissions to participate in the promised currency exchange.
All of us can probably testify that this journey has made us wiser, more patient, and hopefully a little more understanding of what others are going through in their own personal life journeys.
You may know some who have lost a great many things, including homes while waiting for this blessing. Still, others may know someone who has gone on to glory while waiting for this blessing to manifest. In all these circumstances, all of us have risen to each circumstance and it has made us stronger individuals even through extreme heartache.
I would be willing to say that this journey has made us wiser about our finances as well.
When this blessing manifests itself into our hands, we can understandably say we know more now than ever before about money, how it works, how to make it work for us and how to bless others with this incredible gift we've been given and honestly, the learning won't stop upon receiving your blessing. We will continue to learn about finances.
Because, we've all taken this journey together and I care about you, I want to remind everyone to be incredible stewards with your new found wealth.
Prove the naysayers wrong in that you will not adopt a "lottery winner" mentality by making extremely poor choices, giving needlessly and excessively, and snap judgment investments, only to see your money deplete quickly as if it's draining through a sieve.
Surround yourselves and connect yourselves with those persons who are truly in the know and are seasoned in the world of finance, who can steer you into solid choices when it comes to your portfolio and making sound investments in an effort to make your money grow.
Many of you have written to me and shared the wonderful plans you have in which you'll be giving back (as a grateful thank you for your blessing) to those in need.
It has been a pleasure and an encouragement to read your desires. Many of you have shared with me that much of your time, energies and financial support will be put to overseas support and it warms my heart to know this. I can't contest what our Creator is laying on your hearts for that is personal and sacred and I am encouraged to know that many of us will be giving back to the community, no matter where or how far that community stretches.
As I have written before, I do however, want to encourage all of us to sincerely remember those in extreme need situations right here on our own soil.
There is such a tremendous need on the home front and many of our fellow Americans face poverty situations on a daily basis. I am sure many of you have researched a plethora of giving opportunities and I know that as we all continue to network, pray, and connect ourselves with others, more constructive giving opportunities will unveil themselves before us.
Remember our battered and abused women and children facilities, now in operation and those that will be opening new.
Remember our homeless, victims of human trafficking, jobless, handicapped, our much forgotten elderly and many more heart wrenching scenarios here in America.
We live in a great country...a giving country...a country that has blessed so many over the years including those in other lands. Again I strongly advocate, please remember those in need here in the U.S.A. when you give your thoughts and prayers to how you may bless others!
I wish you all the very best in this next chapter in your lives. You will be great at whatever you do!
How do I know this?
Because I have said many times to you, you KNOW IN YOUR KNOWER that we serve a mighty God that does order the steps of His children. For those persons of Faith, I want to encourage you further by saying that I believe you were divinely led into this venture. It was laid upon your hearts to embark on this incredible journey.
Remember that God is the giver of yet another gift. Wisdom! He is the ultimate wisdom giver. So be encouraged to INCREASE and STRENGTHEN your relationship with Him and you will never depart from His wisdom.
You have demonstrated this already by adopting His faith and promises, you have been tried and tested and you have emerged from this testing triumphantly! You are....all of you....winners!
This is DebTarHeelGirl and I approve this message to be forwarded to everyone who shares in our blessing!
