Faith Without Borders

I love this song. Take the time to read the lyrics. 🙂 I attached a Youtube video link (my link to text thingy isn’t working) so you can hear how beautiful it is.

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
[x6]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

Who’s Money is it Anyway?

20130718-140819.jpg

Recently, God has been testing my trust in Him with my finances. At 18 years old, and still living at home there hasn’t been much I have had to worry about when it comes to money. I pay for anything extra I want and my horses, but I get off pretty easily because my parents still pay for a lot.

Lately I have decided to start driving (yes, I waited a lot longer than the average teenager, but with good reason.) so that I can get a job when we move in a month or two. Well, I also decided it would be best for me to buy a car of my own as well. So I started saving. Then little Miss Rivver came along and ate all of my savings. Silly horse!

So… I started over. And… My account got overdrawn. First time that had ever happened to me. It was a nice, big mess. I was stressed and confused. The birthday money Mom and Dad had given me ended up going towards bank fees and such. All that and a way overdue pay check has really pushed my limits. I have cried a lot over the past couple days.

I knew that in becoming an adult that there would be adult stuff to handle, but I wasn’t quite prepared for it to happen. I have been trying to figure out how I am going to handle paying for the horses’ food and buying a car so that I can get a job with not as much money as I had planned on having. It seems like every time I turn around something else comes up. I refuse to be in debt, I am trying to start out well and pay cash for everything. I am just trying to figure out how to handle my money the best.

Have you noticed anything wrong with that last paragraph? How many times did I say MY money? That I was trying to handle it? What’s wrong with what I said? WE worked hard for OUR money, right?

The problem is that it isn’t OUR/MY money. So, who’s is it? God’s. It’s God’s money, not ours. He has so graciously given it to us to BORROW. He trusts us with His money. Do you remember hearing the story in Sunday School? The one about the man who gave his servants the different amounts of talents? A talent was a Greek coin that was worth 6000 drachmas. A drachma was a days wage. In todays money it would be about $360,000 U.S. dollars. So, this man trusted these servants with quite a bit of money. Two of the servants were wise with the man’s money. They knew it was his and used it in a way that would benefit the owner. The other man, hid the money, thinking the man would be proud, but he wasn’t. He gave the foolish man’s money to the wiser man with more talents. (Matthew 25:14-30)

We are to use God’s money wisely. God also calls us to give 10% back to him. It’s a very hard thing to tithe when you have no extra money. But we need to trust that He does everything for the glory and advancement of His Kingdom and be obedient in the things He calls us to do.
