Have a Little Faith


Rhoda Blecker shares a time in her life when her fear about money was greater than her faith in God's provision.

“And now, when shall I also provide for my own house?” —Genesis 30:30 (nkjv)

I saved for retirement from the time I was in my twenties, and as my husband, Keith, neared the end of his career, I felt confident that we had a good nest egg. Then the economy crashed, our savings dropped more than 60 percent, a consulting gig fell away, and the publisher of my new book declared bankruptcy.

Because I’ve always had fears of penury, I started counting every cent, which drove Keith crazy. “We’re not starving,” he said. “Relax. Things will turn around.”

“I don’t see how,” I replied. “Have a little faith,” he told me. We would find a way. Somehow, we did—and continue to.

Help me learn to be like my husband, Lord. He understands Your ways so much more completely than I do. —Rhoda Blecker
