Eight Years of Learning – Faith and Finance

King and I celebrate our 8th anniversary today! It’s been eight years of highs and lows, successes and failures, joys and sorrows, breakthroughs and struggles. Eight years of LEARNING. We have been to 2 marriage retreats in the past month. We learned a great deal from listening to our leaders’ stories and testimonies.

Bishop Jurray Mora and his wife Dea shared about faith and finances during one of the sessions in our marriage retreat in Bellevue. I love how they each had a side in every story they shared. It showed just how different a husband and a wife deals with certain issues. Their testimony was just so real and so encouraging.

In our marriage, King is the one with more faith in terms of finances while I am the more practical one. There are times when fear hits me, but I was reminded during the session that when faith is replaced by fear, I am not able to see that I am God’s child. I need to remind myself that I am more than a steward, because I am an heir, a son, and I have access to all of God’s riches. Thank God His provision is not dependent on my performance, but on His goodness. And I have tasted and seen that the Lord IS good!

Thank you, Babe, for always being in faith! I am always proven wrong when I doubt. We have made mistakes, but God is always faithful. Thank you for your example of humility, patience and faith. I want to be like you when I grow up hehehe. Happy 8th anniversary! I love you! 🙂

The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:15-17
