Steady Plodding vs. a heart consumed with vanity

February 23rd, 2006 at 05:20 pm

I am excited about the change God is bringing to my life. For the past 9 months or so -- actually the past 2 years -- I have been very interested in "starting a side business." There is nothing wrong with this, the entrepreneurial spirit drives america. But my entrepreneurial spirit was more motivated by a desire to get rich quick and consumed my free time and my heart. I have made about $60 and lost about $1,000. Not that the money was that big a deal -- it stole far more from my heart and love for God and family than $1,000.

I have a couple side websites which have consumed a lot of my time. God is leading me to give them up for now and I'm EXCITED about doing this. I felt I should give them up 4 months ago, but I didn't want to. I'm so happy that God is changing my heart so that I "steady plodding" instead of "get rich quick" excites me. Jesus is capturing my heart.

    Hi I think you are on the right track. I have also been struggling with debt. I recently found a great program called Got Guts? This has really made a difference in my life. Check it out at www.got-guts.com

    This way of making money is like many other false promises; they may be the perfect solution for some people and a financial curse for others. It all comes down to your reasons for being in debt, your current income, the stability of that income, and your financial discipline. Itís that single key to the puzzle. If you have relatively poor financial discipline, until you change the way you spend your money it is almost certain a recipe for disaster.

    Yes everyone can use some good information like yours, on how to become debt free in these bad times. I think the more information that you have on the subject of getting your financial life back on track the better off you will be. I came across a website that I think everyone who is looking for solutions to their budget problems will find this website very helpful. It will give you a lot of needed financial solutions.
