Month End: August Snapshot

Thank God I’m not where I used to be.  It’s a phrase that I can take lightly at times, but looking back on it now, I really am thankful that I’m making progress toward a debt free me. Below is a progress report of where I am now:

8/31/2015
Current Balance Amount Paid Remaining Balance
Capital One $6,290.00 $990.00 $5,300.00
Barclay’s $2,490.00 $110.00 $2,380.00
TD Ameritrade $2,196.00 $231.00 $1,965.00
$10,976.00 $1,331.00 $9,645.00
Wells Fargo $8,997.00 $297.00 $8,700.00
Prosper $8,890.00 $283.55 $8,606.45
Wells Fargo Line of Credit $4,550.00 $160.00 $4,390.00
Upstart $5,200.00 $192.55 $5,007.45
$27,637.00 $933.10 $26,703.90
Total $38,613.00 $2,264.10 $36,348.90

Over the past few days, I’ve considered re-targeting my focus on my credit card balances. I’m going to pray on it and talk it over with my fiance. Just doing this action, shows me I’m not the same person I used to be. Before I would simply do the action, and then adjust to what happens. If you’re on this journey to a debt free me, I suggest that you do not do it alone. You’re going to face a lot of challenging choices, and it’s best to have someone that you can share openly your ideas and frustrations. Even if you have no one to talk to, I encourage you to talk to God. Where you are isn’t where you’re meant to stay. If you’re just starting this journey, and you’re overwhelmed by the steps ahead, and you feel uncomfortable about speaking to God or your family about what’s next, then feel free to contact me.

““Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?”
