or something that holds you back?
My “friend” is financial worry.
We didn’t have much growing up.
We didn’t starve but there wasn’t a lot of extra.
As adults, my husband and I have never lacked for the important things:
food, home, transportation, clothes.
There just isn’t a lot of extra.
We have sacrificed (by the world’s standards) for me to stay home with the kids.
We have accrued debt which didn’t come from frivolous desires
but from providing the basics.
I know God is in control.
But fear and worry overwhelm at times.
College is approaching. A future wedding.
I hate this about myself.
At least I’m honest.
This “friend” and I will probably do battle for a lifetime.
Who is your “friend?”
