"Debt Free"

So, Samantha and I started 2 years ago
the process of Financial Peace University.
We didn't do this the traditional way...
meaning, taking the 13 week course
offered at many differing places.
We simply bought the book, and
trudged along... working through the
steps outlined within.

Now, I'm certain the benefits of taking
the class and working the process
has many benefits to which we may
have missed out on; however, we have
successfully eliminated our debt.

The process has allowed us to take
back control of our finances. And as
we gear up to move into the next
phase of the FPU process, we can look
back over the last two years and say
with certainty that any sacrifice we
had to make to remove all of our
debt (mortgage not included) was well
worth it. And we would recommend
to all who can't seem to overcome the
"debt monkey" to take a serious look
at the process.

Debt Free.

Financial Freedom.

It's definitely a weight that we will not miss.

Much the same way, I am spiritually debt free.
Except, there was no FPU course to work
through to help me work out my debt.
No debt snow balls.
No gazelles running my debt away.
No sacrifices.

Quite simply, I can, can't, couldn't do anything about.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— Colossians 1:21-22 NIV

free from accusation"

Freedom from the debt I owe for the sin that is in my life.

Freedom from that debt...
well, that's not just weight missing...

That's weight forever eliminated.

And I for one am so thankful for the spiritual debt of mine
that has been paid in full.
