Freedom is going to require change.

Stephen and I have been discussing what our life post honeymoon will look like. We both know that we’ll be buckling down when it comes to our budget to get out of debt as soon as possible.

I was listening to a recorded sermon by one of my favorite Pastors Steven Furtick. He was teaching about the Israelites crossing the red sea but made a statement that has really stuck with me.

” Freedom isn’t going to come with a good feeling. Freedom is going to come by force, focus and frequency.”

What a simple but incredibly profound statement. I heard it and immediately applied it to our future budget. Budgeting doesn’t come with a good feeling. In fact, it’s going to require a lot of change on both of our parts so that we’re able to one day have the life that we have been dreaming of, but it is absolutely going to take effort and be a challenge.
