I’ve not written in a while; but it’s for good reason. I took the summer off to enjoy all of the fun activities with my family. We wrapped up our summer with a getaway to one of our favorite destinations: Martha’s Vineyard. We returned home and hit the ground running with our homeschool. We then took a break and spent a little less than two weeks cruising in Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Curacao, Aruba and St. Kitts. We returned home; and got back into our routine…. and well…..here I am! I hope everyone who reads this had a wonderful summer and exciting fall!
Upon my return to the online world; and social media, I’m always attracted to most things that have to do with relationship with God, fitness/health & wellness, homemaking, homeschooling, business, marriage, nutrition and parenting. As I thought about my interest, I began thinking about how all of these areas encompass my life. I don’t know about you, but my goal is to be successful in EVERY area of my life. Especially since Jesus/Yeshua came so that I can have abundant life John 10:10). Soooo, I’ve decided to do a little series on the eight dimensions of wellness…..from a biblical perspective. I figure I’ll start with the financial dimension first.
This dimension of wellness is defined as: “Satisfaction with current and future financial situations.” How is your financial situation? Is it a source of stress or peace? If it’s stressing you out; it’s time for a change….which starts with the way you think. Hosea 4:6 says that people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Proverbs 10:21 says that fools die for lack of understanding. Now I’m not calling anyone a fool. I’m just saying, if you find that your knowledge or wisdom is lacking in any area of your life, do yourself a favor and commit to improving in that area. We all have areas in our lives that need improvement. There’s no shame in that. The shame is in choosing to remain ignorant.
Sooooo the first thing that you can do is to know that God has a system for ensuring that you prosper financially. It’s called sowing and reaping; and includes paying tithes, offerings alms and first fruit. The second thing is to get yourself a budget. There are a ton of apps that can help you with this. Third thing: STICK with it! God has given you a spirit of love, power and DISCIPLINE; so you can do it! It will bring order, peace and abundance into your life. Now that is what I call success!
