Stinking thinking: mind over money.

How about this: “poverty is not a lack of money, but a mental imbalance”….wow”! That really puts things into perspective… So when I am lacking in any area, I am technically poor. More specifically in the Biblical sense when I am lacking in any of the blessings God says we can have as Christians, I am poor.

Now I am not a person who does not believe in the benefits of money and aspires to be financially poor – no way, but there is more to life than money. I have learned that pursuing money in itself is futile. There has to be something deeper, something personal, something that drives us. Once we have found that thing that pushes our buttons, we should then think creatively about how we can carve a niche for ourselves and stand out from the crowd. Our wealth essentially is built from the unique gifts and talents God gives us.

Do not for one second ever feel that you have nothing to offer, or are significant. I have grown to understand that God has placed so much in me that can reap huge benefits if I am just patient, wise and submit to His perfect and powerful will. Now by submit I mean prayer because there is still loads and loads of work that needs to be done. Do not expect God to lay it out for you miraculously. You will need to take steps of faith and build yourself up for what you believe God has called you to do.

There is nothing richer than living in the will of God.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
