Ughhhh, that look you have when you come home from a stressful day, from working your self out because you’ve got two jobs, only to be told “Mom, the bills just came in.”
” Dad, am yet to pay my fees in school!. ” Dad, I don’t have this or dad I don’t have that.”
Get the feeling?…
As humans, we have the abilities to overcome obstacles but there are some things that will never stop rolling in “The bills“.  Imagine the feeling of being helpless, imagine having your ATM card completely maxed out. Imagine where your once perfect Family is suddenly crumbling before you simply because you can not meet to the needs of your family members.
Imagine watching your loved ones speak ill of you and walk away from your life when push comes to shove.
I have learnt that some times life changing moment are the best teaching methods to learn from.
With how the world is constantly changing, with real friends becoming fewer by the end of the day, jobs becoming uncertain, love growing sour, there seems to always be tensions, heart breaks, pain, fear, when the end of the month draws near.
Whether it’s the cable bill, family upkeep, children school fees, shopping for the kids ect. We must not loose ourselves in the process or give in to fear of never making it.
Although felt by everyone, fear is a very strong feeling that causes unease to all and is not likely to be enjoyed by any.
So why entertain it? Why not choose to trust God to bless the works of your hands and come true for you?
Life for many hasn’t been a crystal stairs. It’s had tacks, splinters, and boards turn up and often times places with no carpets on the bare floors. But then, do they just give up and walk away? No. You weren’t born by chance, you are here because God has ordained you will be here. All you need to be comfortable and meet to your demands are all inside of you. Just look inside. God is done with creating anything, he’s resting now. It’s up to you to believe that you are not a failure, not then, not now, not ever.
Life will always make us face a million problems in our life time and if we never overcome them, then we would never achieve or become better persons. So, get up, dust yourself up and wear a smile as you hold the bill.
It’s a bill…Not your life sentence.”

24 Thoughts on “Crazy Bills…..”

  • I can understand the feeling when things in life seems to compile. I notice taking things in small chunks seem to help rather than trying to conquer the entire mountain. 🙂

  • Great post. Death and taxes! I like the hopeful message. Why is it always easier to see the negative? I have forced myself to be more positive this year and to just let things be what they will. It’s been a vary positive year so far. (Even though its only March!)

    • Every thing will continue to be positive for you. Just keep the faith and don’t forget to let your positive attitude rub off on those around you. Thank you for stopping by and sharing with us. I really appreciate it.

  • Oh I needed this. Thank you. I remember when I fractured my foot and I was out of work for four months. I couldn’t even imagine where the money was coming from. I was so anxious, but with God’s help I was able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s like you said It’s a bill not your life sentence. I love that. That’s my favorite part.

    • Yes dear, it’s a bill not a life sentence. Sometimes, I get overwhelmed with all the bills to pay and am sure there were other people as well going through the Same thing. I have come to realise that you can have all the money you need to tend to your needs but with poor management you realise that you run out before those needs are met. Also, you may not have all the money you needed to meet your needs but before you know it, God takes care of those needs without you knowing how he did it.

  • Good article in order to the bills , a thing is sure when we
    got our tickets to heaven, bills are a simple steeplechase
    in a race, we need money and from my dad disease I’m loving
    pretty details where money isn’t coin in our markets.
    Enjoy our lives and smiling …

  • Yes Whitney One day at a time and One Bill too, of course it is different for you and your Husband with your Children also to care for, your money has to be stretched a lot further than mine.
    But I don’t worry about Money anymore although I use to and everything else too. Ron said when he first met me I use to worry if I had nothing to worry about and that was very True but as a Christian I Trust God to meet my needs now.
    I live on a very small amount of Money, a disability Pension but I always have what is needed to pay my Bills, I’m not extravagant, I don’t smoke or drink, buy expensive clothes or jewelry, I use very little makeup etc, although perhaps I buy too many specials with food, I love a bargain but I give to those in need what I don’t use, so it’s not wasted.
    I have shared with you before Whitney as confirmed in Isaiah assurance in the hard times that Life brings and Satan too who temps us and puts us to the test until he takes off in defeat and God has the Victory in our Lives when we are Perfected in Love. 1John 4:16-19
    Christian Love Always – Anne.

    • Yes Anne you have shared with me Isaiah 43:1-3 and thank you for sharing with us. I trust God to take care of every of our needs. I just know that he will always come through for us. Always happy to read from you.
      Thank you once again for stopping by and sharing with us with a great reminder, Not to be wasteful. Have a great day.

  • It is amazing the peace God is willing to give, when I am willing to just let go and trust Him. It is also amazing in the ways that He can meet my every need. I heard it said once that a person can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed. We can count our problems, but only God can count the ways He will meet those needs.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • ” A person can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed” i couldn’t help but say Hallelujah when I read that line. That can only be God. His works leaves everyone in awe. Thank you Tom for sharing with us. God bless you
