Get it Now! No Need to Wait for Pay Day.
1) Stop craving things you don't need. Instead, try enjoying what you've got. Someone once told me when I was anxious in buying a particular pair of shoe "beautiful things are always available and even more beautiful than the one you're dieing to buy now." Yeah! There'll be something beautiful to buy each day (Colossians 3:5)
2) Pray before you go shopping. Ask God to direct you in buying what you need and follow His directive no matter what your mind tells you about the beautiful things around. Remember, the devil did that with Eve and the outcome wasn't a good one (Phillipians 4:19).
3) Restrain yourself to spending within what's left of your earnings. If one job can't carry the necessities, start with another (Deuteronomy 8:18), until your debt is paid off.
4) Give God His portion. As a Christian it is very easy to focus on the huge debt you're paying and expect God to understand. Of course He does, that's why He needs you to give Him His portion for more of His blessings to rain upon you (Malachi 3:8-12) and give to others too. This will not be easy but I tell you no matter how difficult things are for you, there's someone in a worse situation. Go ahead give, be patient and watch what happens. Cheers.!
