Freedom

We did it. We finally did it. I cannot simply believe it.

Last night I signed the very last check in terms of my family’s financial “debt” situation. We are now 100% completely free from all forms of debt.

We owe absolutely nothing to any institution or person.

The feeling is somewhat euphoric, but it’s tempered with a touch of subtle grace reminding me that it’s only through the Lord (and His messengers like Matt Carter and Andy Stanley) that has gotten us to this place.

It’s His Mercy in our lives… completely undeserved. And it feels great.

It couldn’t come at a better time. It couldn’t have come any sooner or later. This is the right time, as many things are. We aren’t a perfect family when it comes to our personal finances, but we’re taking small steps in the right direction, and we’re trusting God will do the rest.

Freedom. Galatians 5:1.
