In our culture, debt—and its hardships—have become a part of life for most adults. School loans, credit card debt, outrageous mortgages, outstanding healthcare bills – these are all things that can prevent us from the joy and peace God has for us.
In Proverbs 22:7, Solomon wrote that “the borrower is servant to the lender.” Have you ever felt that your work and even your life revolved around paying off your debts? Or that you could just be free if you had more money?
Being in debt can be overwhelming, but none of our debts are bigger than our God. And He gives us everything we need to make Him the Lord of our lives, not debt:
“Seek the kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33
If you’re ready to seek His help in getting out debt, I want you to know that Alive Church has resources for you.

Classes are from 6:30 to 8:30 pm every Saturday, with childcare and kid and teen classes available as well. Visit www.alivechurch.com/FPUto learn more and to sign up.
You can also download my book, Lord of the Fries, for free on Amazon Kindle now through October 4 or come to Alive Church for a free paper copy anytime.
Additionally, you can check out my last talk at Alive Church, where I provide some practical, biblical tips on how you can, as Dave Ramsey puts it “Live like no one else so later you can live like no one else.”
Know that I’m praying for you as you seek His guidance in getting out of debt.
