This is an all-too-common question. I don’t know exactly what has caused your financial distress, but for many people, the ever-present credit card, the clamor to acquire bigger and better, and a lack of self-control have put many people in this situation. Add unexpected medical problems, layoffs, and business failures to that list, and you’ll see why it is a wonder that anyone can stay financially afloat these days.
If you identify with any of the above situations, it is time to seek some help. Go to a trusted pastor or friend who might know of the social services in your area. You need someone who can help you get on a budget and begin chipping away at those bills. If you are out of work, you can seek employment counseling at the same time.
Before you do anything, you need to commit this situation to the Lord. seek His guidance and make a commitment that you will follow His leading. Trust Him. He cares about this area of your life. He will provide for you.
