Day 1 of “Say Good Things February.”
You are a good money manager. You have an abundance of money. You use your money wisely. You are thankful for your money because it helps you get the things you need to survive. If you use credit cards, you pay them off in full each month. You save money for emergencies. With the money you have left over after you pay all your bills, you give money to help others.
Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.
I am a good money manager. I have an abundance of money. I use my money wisely. I am thankful for my money because it helps me get the things I need to survive. If I use credit cards, I pay them off in full each month. I save money for emergencies. With the money I have left over after I pay all my bills, I give money to help others.
I discovered after I kept saying these things over and over again for days, weeks, and months, they became true because of actions I took.
Your subsconscious mind will lead you to make it true. You have to believe it’s possible. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your finances.
There was a time in my life where my bills were more than the money supply coming in. This was a frustrating time for me. Credit cards were part of my problem. I charged more than I could pay off at the end of the month. Interest accumulated making my debt higher. It was not good. I didn’t know that a money supply would stop and make it where I couldn’t pay these bills at all. If you use credit cards, you pay them off in full each month.
Another problem I had was I got a second mortgage on our home. I thought the interest rate was going to be low like the first time. I didn’t know that interest rates could be as low as 3% and go higher than 15%. I signed the papers without asking or looking to see what the interest rate would be. Ouch! With a high interest rate and not able to make your payments, you could lose your house. Luckily, I didn’t. Read the fine lines. Ask what the interest rate will be and what your payments will be each month before you sign the papers.
I have several friends who got into financial trouble because they gave money to their children or friends which left them without enough money to pay their bills. They gave it without expecting any money in return. Which is kind, but they weren’t helping the others to grow stronger. Make those you lend money to accountable. Share with others from your abundance. Consider it a loan; but, be not spiteful if your friend or family member is human, and is unable to repay you. The church I attended gave me money to help pay my mortgage and second mortgage three times. Then they said that they were enabling me to stay as I was. They said I had to figure out a better way to manage my finances. I had to find a way to pay off these debts. Which was difficult, but I did it and I’m glad that I did.

The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
7 Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. 8 Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
