When life throws you a curve ball

So much has occurred in the last month. My husband Robert was forced into taking an early retirement from work due to his serious and life-threatening health issues.  The quote, “Pride goeth before the fall,”  resonates it’s lone warnings.  But, I have hope that everything will be alright- that GOD is on our side, and he is faithful.

It’s a thought process. We were making a lot of money then, now we are not making any. What do we do?

1. Tell your story

Host a go-fund-me page or plea to the neighborhood

2. Determine the essentials of survival

We don’t need the TV but we do need electricity- evaluate the basics survival requirements, then add on the luxuries if any money is left over.

3. Ask for assistance and accept it graciously

Community charities are a place to start as a one-time safety net.

4. Thank those who have a generous heart

If they are making time to give to you, then make time to sincerely thank them from your heart.

5. Make a plan of action

To eliminate debt to cash ratio variances

Cash in 401K, closeout savings account, get rid of an automobile with the higher payment,  host yard sales (sell extra stuff laying around the house not needed),

6. Trust in GOD!

He has given you the presence of wisdom from others in your life. Belief is one of the hardest things we make ourselves do- yet it is the simplest feat to just let go and have faith that God is in control.
