How is Your Financial Thought Life?

My Unusual Life is not a blog that just focuses on relationships. I believe that this blog will help us all to be whole in every area of our lives.

I am re posting a blog from 3 years ago, that really touched and helped people. It relates to our thoughts, faith, and our finances.

 Successfully getting out of debt and getting your finances in order is going to depend on how you think. The Word of God says "As a man think, so is he."
Proverbs 23:7

So how are you thinking? Are you thinking "I'm always going to be broke, I'll always live paycheck to paycheck." Here's a good one that I've heard a time or two "I'll never have enough money to save." Well, if that is the way you are thinking, that will be the way you will always be living.

We have to get our faith in the right place, for the word says "The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17) If you don't believe you will ever have anything, or be anything, then it will happen according to YOUR FAITH. God wants to do a major work in the lives of His people, but if we don't have the faith to receive it, then we limit the things He can do in our lives.

He wants you out of debt, His word clearly states that He desires for you to owe no man anything. (Romans 13:8) So, if you understand His word, you understand that He is able to get you out of debt, because it is His will for you to be debt free.

However, you must know that there is a "how to" part to this. How do you get the things God has for you? How do you grab hold to His promises for your life? You do all of that by Faith. Where does faith come from? It comes from our foundational scripture "As a man think, so is he." Faith is formed in your thoughts, your belief in something. This brings me back to the topic of this post "How is Your Thought Life?"

Here are a few of quick tips to help you successfully get out of debt, and get your finances in order:
  • Get a scripture or two to stand on.
* Owe nothing to anyone-except for your obligation to love one another. Romans 13:8
* Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 2
  • Start where you find yourself.
* Write out your debts, every single one of them. You have to know where you stand. If you can't deal with where you are now, you'll never go any further.
  • Follow the lead and guide of the Holy Spirit.
* The word says that the Holy Spirit is our Advocate, and He will teach us everything. John 14:26
Begin to believe God to go further, get your faith confessions out, and ask Him for help. And He will answer!

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Start Where You Find Yourself

"When he came to his senses, he said, 'how many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death"! (Luke 15:17)

How many of us need to do as the prodigal son did, and come to our senses? How many of us are going day by day, living "prodigal lives"? Here is some definitions of a Prodigal Life:
Living excessivelyWastefulCostly RecklessLacking cautionThoughtless You may ask, what does a prodigal life have to with the title of today's blog. EVERYTHING!! You have to know where you are, before you can start where you find yourself. Just as this son began to realize where he was, we have to do the same thing. He realized that he was in a pig pen starving to death, because of his prodigal living, and he came to his senses, and started where he found himself.
He had to hit the reset button on his life, but, he had to come to his senses first. And that's what we have to do, when we find ourselves in prodigal living. We …
