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 We Settle for Less...

My Unusual Life follower wrote this:

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Is Your Man Worth Losing Everything....

Good Evening You Guys,

It's been a while, I know.. But I have been mad busy.. Did you miss me and my unusual life?? I missed you all!

So, this blog is a little different. I asked a friend of mine if I could share her story for tonight's blog. She gave me her permission, because she wants to help anyone that is reading this, and may be going through the same thing. I will not use her name, to protect her privacy. But, here we go...

My friend "Leslie" has been involved in a relationship with a man for a little over a year. She knew this relationship wasn't God's plan for her life when she got involved. But she didn't expect the relationship to get this deep. It's not really a relationship to be honest, "Leslie" is wishing for more, and he is playing the field. She knows that God is not pleased with this relationship, but what can she do.. She feels like she is in to deep.

Fast forward a year and some change later "Leslie" loses her j…

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…
