If you’re tired of me reporting on my unwanted fat, here is a bit of good spiritual news for your New Years.
Last year was the best year I have ever had in business. Because I am a privately owned business, I have had to pay quarterly taxes. I shared with my tax preparer that I earned 15% more last year. Of course, what I heard back from him was what I expected. I have to pay more for taxes for the last quarter. But what I expected to pay was a couple hundred more, not $1500 more.
Then, I had to take my car in for a transmission leak this morning. BMW said it would cost $1200. I got an estimate this morning of $600, so I’m going with that. But along with that estimate, the very gentile technician also showed me a serious oil leak that would cost $1500 to fix. I just cringed.
Okay, Unlimited God! After the holidays, when no one has money, I get blasted with a 3300 expense. What am I to think of that?
Well, I’ll tell you. Absolutely nothing. The cringe lasted as long as it took me to remember to Let Go and Let God!
There is no limit to the amount of good and prosperity God can bring to my life. Just today and yesterday I had 7 new clients make appointments. In my business, 7 new clients in 2 days is a great accomplishment—and the day isn’t over. A greater good is in control of all my finances and yours.
We don’t have to depend on our limited source for big problems when they happen. We need to GIVE IN to the greater source of God. I have absolutely no qualms about Spirit providing the money and means for this work to be done efficiently and the money to be provided when it is needed.
Now, that is not to say that I won’t be wise and do two things: I am going to get the transmission worked on first, because I have the money for that. And even though I have the money, I’ll put it on a credit card, so it will take another month for me to have to pay for it. This is just smart planning and will give me some play on the money needed for the taxes.
The second thing I’ll do is this. Because I took the car to a specialist for the transmission, doesn’t mean I need to get the oil problem done by the same specialist, which is another reason why I chose to only get the transmission issue done first. Also, oil is cheap, and I can always monitor if the oil is low and check it until I have the money to pay for the larger fee. Meanwhile, I can shop around with the knowledge of what kind of leak I have and be wise about pricing it out.
You see, I know literally nothing about cars. So, when I get a heads-up about something like this oil leak, it’s a good thing. The technician actually showed me exactly what was wrong. He guided around the bottom of my car, showing me the gasket that was leaking and told me what was needed to fix it. He said it was just labor intensive, which was the biggest cost. The parts were just oil and a gasket. So, now that I know this, I can sound like I am learned about the process, and price this out at a smaller place that doesn’t charge as much for labor.
I can also do this after the hit of this larger amount of money is due. These are all wise decisions that Spirit gives us the brains to make. We don’t have to be encumbered by what the world tells we HAVE to do. We can look at the problem and make strong choices with all the knowledge we have and with the resources God gives us.
Be wise and make strong choices with all the knowledge your given. And know that Spirit is unlimited in resource. You will be provided for. I am absolutely certain of this!
