We have had a great day financially, if that’s possible when both husband and wife have been out of work for 4+ months. 🙂
This morning, we deposited my husband’s check from that 2 week contract job he completed. When the teller handed me the deposit slip, I was surprised to see a $700 account balance. Our checking account hasn’t held that much money in quite awhile. When I came home, I logged into the online banking and found out that we did have $700. Between the check, some help from hubby’s dad, and a deposit from half.com, we had money to pay several more bills.
We are now paid up through the end of April. Yay! Every single bill has been paid in full, on time, and no credit cards were used. God is very very good. Also, I paid May’s car payment and realized that the payment brought our balance below $6,000. I love celebrating the small milestones. When I entered the payment in my spreadsheet, I was pleasantly surprised to see that we have now paid off 25% of our total debt. We are making progress, even though we’re both looking for jobs.
God is so good! He provides even when you least expect it. There are still big hurdles ahead, but when I see how God is helping us over the small hurdles, it’s much easier to have faith that He will help us over the large.
And my God will supply all your needs
according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus
(Philippians 4:19, NASB).
