  2. Emily, I relate to your financial struggles. I too have all my bills overdue and my bank account is overdrawn. I am, however, at peace and my heart is filled with joy. I am not happy with my financial situation, just joyful that I am not at the same place I was a year ago. I (like I am sure you have)am doing everything in my power to get fiscally fit. People see me talking on an I-phone and scoff. What they don't understand is that to be in the business world, you must have a phone, and I am under contract so I can't ditch it. I have cut everything possible and I am still sinking. I too have a job, but will not get my first paycheck until August. People that talk about having personal responsibility about your finances sometimes do not understand the entire picture. Some things are beyond our control and all we can do is have faith that God is going to handle it. I have had to turn over EVERYTHING to God and trust. Like you, it always seems to work out. This weekend I saw my ex husband drinking vodka straight from the bottle behind his truck at a kids sporting event when he thought nobody was looking. I was saddened for him, but also stopped and said a thankful prayer that I am no longer in that relationship or that place where it is necessary to drink. I am sure in my conviction and God's promise that this valley will pass!
    Have a great week!
