Help! I Can’t Pay My Bills. Part 4

This is a series written for those who are struggling mightily with their finances and tough decisions are being made about who will be paid and who will not be paid.  It is my hope that this series will provide practical steps that can be taken to walk out of this situation and into financial freedom.

Part 4  Take Action!

I have found that whenever I am overwhelmed, I move toward doing nothing.  I just want to shut down and ignore everything.  Running away feels like the right thing to do.

Yet, the FACT is that running away will just make the situation worse.  Will it be extremely difficult to work through this situation?  AB-SO-LUTE-LY!  But the cost of NOT doing something is even more difficult!  You CAN do this.

Below are some practical tips that have worked for me when I have wrestled with overwhelming situations. 

  • Action List  I prepare a list of items and prioritize them
  • Establish accountability  Someone who I trust who will hold me accountable to my actions
  • Seek Help  Here at NewSpring Church, we provide FREE one-on-one financial counseling for over 500 people each year.  We provide this service on-site at all of our campuses.  You can request this free counseling HERE.  We will not try to sell you anything.  Our counselors are winning with their money and are passionate about helping folks do the same!

    I have lost my job and upside down in my house which I built only 4 years ago. I can’t sell it in this market to pay off the debt.
    How can I save my situation? I am a family man and dependents.
