Now, be honest with me. Are you in or have you ever been in college? Were/are you like me: getting excited when you find one dollar extra that you thought you didn’t have? Yeah, it is pretty tough trying to become doctors, lawyers, nurses, when you can’t even afford one yourself. Now that may be too extreme, however I know you would choose food over that disgusting rash that hasn’t gone away in 4 months.
Well, I am here to tell you to stop thinking of getting a Sugar Daddy and start looking to Jesus!
If you are reading this, I’m sure you are in a relationship with Him now or looking to be in one. If you came across this as an atheist, then finally decided you are poor and this is your last resort, I WELCOME you. I totally feel you.
Before I go on, I encourage you to seek Jesus for everything in your life. Got an A? PRAY. Didn’t trip in front of that cute guy from Math? PRAY. Constipation? PRAY. He is with you all the time and helps you with all that goes on… ALL… gross poop stories starting to pop into your head?
Okay Rebecca, time to talk about being broke.
I was living off of 91 cents for about a week and was literally dying. I mean I had food, PRAY, and everything I needed. I was just so afraid that when I ran out I would still have 91 cents. Now, I don’t remember if I asked God to send me some money or if he just wanted to see me stop struggling, but he sent down three beautiful angels and blessed me with money: My mom, aunt, and grandma.
Why do I tell you this? Well, God is always there. I have been praying a lot lately but none of it had to do with money. It was all for other people. So, I am hear to tell you: The more you believe and the stronger you become, God will be there all the time. He knows when you are struggling. Just remember he makes all things work together for your good.
Buy food from the cheapest grocery store around. Here its “Winco” and is seriously my best friend. Instead of buying new soap dispensers every every two weeks and spending more then $10 every 2 months, buy a huge soap bottle and spend $3! Buy generic brands on some foods (not all). Get a lot of toilet paper instead of buying a little bit all the time. Little money savers like this have saved me and I, weirdly, thank God for helping me grow up in a low income family! I learned all the cheap lunch, dinner, and breakfast ideas!
Also remember that you are not the only one in need. If you have $5 and a fridge full of groceries either bless them with food or some money.
You may be the answer to their prayers, then you will soon find the answer to yours!
So, to close, I bring you a verse: Matthew 6:31-34
