    A Study on Psalm 39: Part Three

    Today I’m going to finish my study of Psalm 39 with a discussion on how we’re supposed to submit our finances to our Heavenly Father. I said, “I will watch my ways     and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth     while in the presence of the wicked.” So I remained utterly silent,     not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased;     my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned;     then I spoke with my tongue:  “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days;| let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth;     the span of…

    A Study on Psalm 39: Part Two

    A Study on Psalm 39

    When I asked the Lord this morning what He wanted me to write, Psalm 39 popped into my head. I didn’t even remember what that particular Psalm was about. I’ll post it here in case you don’t have it memorized either! I said, “I will watch my ways     and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth     while in the presence of the wicked.” So I remained utterly silent,     not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased;     my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned;     then I spoke with my tongue:  “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days;| let…

    Trusting God with Your Finances

    I’ve talked to a lot of married couples and listened to even more in videos, blogs, and books and it seems like one of the biggest issues married people struggle with is their finances. I know Justin and I have been struggling financially since we got married, my parents have been married 31 years and struggle with their finances, friends of ours have been married 5 years and still struggle with their finances – it seems to be a pretty common theme. But one thing that the Lord has been trying to teach me since I got married two years ago is to trust Him with our finances. You see,…
