Now that I’ve moved back to North Carolina, I can finally relax and not be stressed about bills. I still want to earn a decent living, but I can be content in knowing that God is with me.
I want to increase my income and experience financial freedom as a full-time writer, but I don’t want my personal ambitions to get in the way of the peace of God over my life. I fell prey to the chase of money plenty of times. It took me hitting rock bottom last year to really get my focus back on Jesus.
“But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.”
– 1 Timothy 6:9-10 [NLT]
I may not be ballin’ (making a boatload of money) just yet, but I’m happy where I am and will continue to strive to go further.
