The amount of Christians who are looking at bankruptcy or foreclosure is at an all time high.  We could site several reasons for this but the number one reason is uncontrolled spending.  We know there are also situations we have no control over such as an unforeseen illness or a death in the family or a job layoff.  This is when it is a good idea to look into Christian debt counseling.    

These are counselors who are caring advisors willing to help without expecting anything in return. They will give you assistance in reducing your debt, paying off all your credit cards in a short period of time and give you the tools to control your financial situation and to help you get back on track.

Christian debt counseling services can help you set up a budget plan.  This is a chart that tracks your flow of money.  With this you can see areas of overspending and helps you make adjustments. This helps you to save more and be able to pay your bills off quickly.   

Most of us have been living in the “buy now, pay later” mode.  We see offers everyday from credit card companies and retailers tempting us with 0% financing and no payments for 5 years!  This is how we become overburdened with debt.  A budget will help you to watch spending, control those bad habits and plan ahead for a better financial future.

Christian debt management services will look over your finances to give us a better awareness of your current financial situation. In the years before credit cards were the main payment source, we could easily see how much money you had.  Credit cards give us a false sense of our financial status.  The first bit of counsel you will get will more than likely be to cut up all those cards.

Christian counselors will encourage you to seek God’s strength to control your emotions and impulses to spend money needlessly.  Ask Him to help you keep a close eye on what you are spending everyday.  Have Him show you areas where you could easily cut back.  Before you buy, pray and ask yourself if you really need it.  Take your lunch to work and resist the urge to pick up that latte for the early commute.  Carefully look over your monthly expenses, are there areas where they can be cut?  

The bottom line is to be satisfied with what you have. We do not have to have the latest model car, that new Jacuzzi tub, or a high tech kitchen.  In Paul’s letter to Timothy he says; “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”  ….  “And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.”

I Timothy 6: 8-9
