Finding Financial Peace for 2009

Year 2008 is about to come to an end and another year will begin. A serious matter that needs to be done is an end-of-the-year evaluation of everything in our lives. From matters like mental and personal development and growth, physical and health issues, spiritual, relational and financial concerns. For some, an area that is least given attention is the spiritual aspect, giving priority to their personal finances especially when they need to find debt help.

This is something that is natural but I encourage everyone to also focus on the spiritual. Not to say that finances and spiritual matters need to be separated because, in fact, the Bible, more specifically the New Testament, talks a lot about finances and giving more than the topics of love and prayer. I guess because God understands how important money is to us.

So if you are in need of credit help, be sure to not forget to call on God because it is He who can give you what other financial companies can't – that's a peace that passes all understanding. As Suze Orman, one of the most influential people of 2008 according to Time Magazine, quotes, “A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.” God alone can give that.
