You’ll live your life moving from one excuse to the next unless you choose to stop it!
Stop blaming your family or other people for your troubles ... start accepting responsibility for mistakes you’ve made and change your circumstances.
1 John 2:28 in the Message Bible says:
“And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we’ll be ready for him when he appears, ready to receive him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guilt or lame excuses when he arrives.”
If you’re good at making excuses ... you’ll never change your life, get out of debt, or walk in His abundant provision.
Don’t make excuses ... financial or otherwise. Instead, make a difference ... by asking God to reveal opportunities to you beyond your natural eye or normal thought process.
