  1. We are so grateful to Abba for ‘leaning’ on us until we committed to becoming debt-free. Living actually became much simpler and more focused for us, because for the first time we had funds available for HIS instructions as to their use. We would have missed many opportunities for obedience and service if we were still tied up in debt (and no doubt we DID miss many such opportunities when we WERE in debt!). We have asked His forgiveness, because we have come to understand that when we bring debt into our lives, we’re actually putting the creditor in the place of command – a place that actually belongs to Abba – so debt can easily become a form of idolatry. What a scary thought!!!!

    1. What a wonderful testimony! It’s great that once you’ve asked His forgiveness and turn away from it, how we can let it go and move forward to be a blessing by instructing to those who will listen and hopefully avoid the pitfalls (sins) we commit. Shalom, my friend!
