The Biggest Benefit of Writing It Down

Ever since I started a Budget I've seen the benefits of writing our expenses and spending down.

Even if you go through your month paying your bills, buying your groceries, you make sure you don't spend more than you make but you don't write it are still missing out.

If you write it down, don't change how you spend (as long as you live within your means), you WILL still see the benefits.

When I think back on all the months we were writing it down, the BIGGEST Benefit was being able to look back over the month and see how God worked. How He provided. How when it didn't seem the numbers would add up, they did!

When there were weeks we didn't get a paycheck, we could see how God made it work.

When there were months that we had extra bills, people who were in need, we had it right there in writing and we praised Him. The One who provided.

Are you struggling each month? Getting frustrated that there just never seems to be enough? Write it down and see how God has provided for your needs and so much more!

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.     I Chronicles 29:11-12

As our national economy continues to struggle, and families are negatively impacted, we are going to need a lot more advice like this. Good post.
