    Sheila, I love this post. What spoke to me is when you said, “I came in to this world penniless and it’is only God who makes me rich.” That is so true and a comfort in the unsettling times.

      Hi, Cindy!
      Thank You for your encouragement! I know in a world full of trouble that as a child of the King, we can rest assured no matter how hard times are eternal riches will last forever. My prayer is that the inheritance I leave behind would be that people would remember my heart for Jesus for generations to come.

    Kiss that man of yours! He’s such a great supporter of what God has called you to do! Yay Dave! Yay God!
    Keep writing my sister! Love you!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Toni!
      I did kiss him 🙂 He truly is a wonderful supporter and I am blessed beyond what I deserve. I will keep on writing and thank you for your encouragement as always! Love you too!

  3. It sounds to me like you understand what it means to have an abundant life. Inspiring read! Thanks!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Alice! You are right! I am living the abundant life! I am very thankful for my God who reminds me every day the blessing of His grace, mercy, forgiveness, but most of all His love.

    I’ve been trying to remind myself of this lately. The only riches that really matter are the ones that are being stored up in heaven for me. It’s hard when finances are tight, and not having to think about watching every penny would be wonderful — but God knows that and provides for all our needs!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Rebekah!
      I had a friend explain to me that we are sharing our an inheritance with the world and leaving a powerful legacy. I’m with you and would rather store up my riches in heaven. I’m reminded of Solomon’s words, Do the lilies toil about what they are going to wear or do the birds worry about what they will eat? Our God is big and does provide all we will ever need.

    It is such an important distinction to make that it is not money that is the problem but when we start idolizing, focusing, and worshiping it we lose sight of our Heavenly Father and what He is calling us to do! Thank you for the post! God bless!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Melissa! Thank You for sharing and your encouragement. God’s word never says money is evil. but the LOVE of money. When we love money more than God we lose sight of who we are and our vision. Blessings to you too!

    Yes! Indeed everything fades away but being in the center of His will counts and adds value to out lives for eternity. We are rich when we stay tuned to His purposes for us, daily.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Ann!It is so true! Everything will fade away, but what we have done for God. The gift of eternal life is so precious and you can’t put a price tag on God’s love because it is priceless!

  8. Peggy Underwood says:

    Love this! Thanks for the encouragement. Rejoicing in what God has called you to do! You go girl! Love you.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Peggy!Thank You for your constant encouragement! I am rejoicing in what God has called me to do as well! I love you and will continue to listen to God’s voice!

  9. Julie says:

    God makes me rich! What a great thought! I wished I lived every day based on that fact!
    I love your inspiration!

  10. Jess says:

    SO much truth! I’m often tempted to put a price on things or to seek a job outside of the home, but I find working for God so much more peaceful and joyful and rewarding. It’s amazing how little money matters to me these days as compared to a few years ago!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Jess! I am with you! The things which used to matter to me no longer matter. I am so thankful the Lord has changed my heart towards material things. Sure, they are nice, but I would rather own them than have them own me. No one wants to be a slave to the debtor!

  11. Sheila, I love reading your posts. So often the things you share are some of the very things I am struggling with. I quit my part time retail job, last May, but now here I am back at work. I keep wondering, why did I come back? Because my boss begged me? Because I wanted to contribute? Or maybe it was because I didn’t like being home all day, knowing all the things that needed to be done. Ha, ha. But you are so right. Our value has nothing to do with the money we make, what outfit I am wearing or how many followers we have on our blogs. Our value is in Him alone. I’m glad you decided to stay home. Thanks for sharing your journey. – Amy

      Hi, Amy! Thank You for reading my posts! It is such a tough decision, but I want to be God-honoring in all my ways. I don’t always get it right and then I’m miserable and wonder why. I miss the social aspect of working, but I don’t miss all the drama either. 🙂 It has also taught me valuable lessons along the way about how rich I truly am despite what the world would tell me. Blessings to you!!

    Amen! Yes, true riches come when we let God sit on throne of our hearts!
