Can I share something personal?
I have been a little emotional lately. It seems I have gotten this way this time of year for the last few years. About 4 years ago my sweet hubby and I were Christmas shopping, using credit cards to buy the few gifts we wanted to buy, praying that he would get a few extra power hook ups and things so that we could pay them off before the interest kicked in. We didn't have the money to pay bills AND buy gifts. You see, not long before then, we had stepped out in faith and I had left my successful career as a counseling psychotherapist to become a stay home mama. We felt God had called us to make that decision but it was so very hard. My poor hubby was working 120+ hours a week - yes a week - to make ends meet. He was exhausted and stressed - but we trusted God to provide. It was, however, getting very difficult, and, at that point, I was beginning to look at returning to work. I really didn't want to - the thought made me literally sick to my stomach - but we weren't staying afloat.
That is when God brought a small business opportunity into my life. I didn't know what I was doing. I thought network marketing was a scam. But I was watching my friends have success in both their health and their finances and I again surrendered and trusted God.
This Christmas, my Plexus paycheck has paid all of our bills and then some. This means we have not had to use credit cards at all for gifts and we've been able to buy very nice ones as well as give back to the community. I don't say this to brag on me or really even brag on Plexus. I say this to brag on Jesus! Jeremy and I trusted Him - we surrendered it all to Him - and He provided abundantly more than what we could have imagined while I continue to be a stay home mom. It is mind-blowing and I'm so thankful and humbled by His love for us!
