How To Make A Financial Comeback

Trish Crossley

Financial failures aren’t fatal. You can come back from wherever you’re coming from.

The reason for your financial setback may trigger powerful feelings of frustration, fear, anger, resentment, remorse and even shame. These emotions mixed with difficult money situations can make you feel overwhelmed like there’s no end.

There is hope even when it seems hopeless. You’ve got everything you need for a comeback. You can ACT now!

What It Means To ACT:

1. Advance

You have to choose to move forward in a purposeful way. In the words of Winston Churchill, “If you're going through hell, keep going.”

You know you don’t want to be in debt or struggling with your finances forever. So if your finances are not where you want them to be, then today’s the day you can take a step toward making them better.

Jesus spoke these words to His closest friends, His disciples, moments before the betrayal, which led to His murder, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).Are you paralyzed by the fear of never recovering or failing? Don’t stop trying to advance!

2. Commit

Turn your intentions into your reality. Not by daydreaming about what could be but by advancing toward what will be.

When Jesus, after being unjustly accused and sentenced to death by crucifixion, took his final breath on the cross, He said, “It is finished.” Jesus then bowed his head and gave up his spirit (John 19:30).

Jesus remained committed. He didn’t quit until He had paid the ultimate sacrifice, His own life, for all of our sins.

Defining your next steps to a better financial future then committing to advance daily is how you will reach your financial goals.

3. Transform

Transformation is way more than simply changing your mind.

You’re committing to advance toward a radical change that will affect everything about you and what your life touches. This transforms your present circumstances, your future choices, your family’s future opportunities and generations of your family’s legacy. 

If you won’t do it for yourself, would you do it for them?

That is exactly what Jesus did when He died for you. You were spiritually bankrupt. He paid the debt for your sins and made a way to change your destiny.

Then, after three days in the grave, Jesus transformed by coming back to life.

In John 11:25, Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die. He rose from the grave and promised us a life of abundance in Him.

Jesus loves you. He never meant for you to carry the burdens of this world alone.

Yes, bringing your finances from death to life is possible. You just need to ACT.
