This just dropped in my spirit…for somebody. I pray it is received. You have a checking account balance of $19.26.
(I chose $19.26 because that was my account balance when I moved to Memphis. I didn’t know how in the world I was going to make it, but GOD!!!!! I did. I have, and I haven’t missed a meal or bill. Stop doubting Him! He will do it!)
Anyway, back to what I was saying. You have a checking account balance of $19.26. You go to the ATM, enter your PIN, and withdraw $20.00. Most banks will let you withdraw it and add that $30 or $35 fee to your account which puts you deeper in the negative. If you’re with Guaranty Bank, they will even let you withdraw until you reach a LIMIT and just keep adding the fee for each transaction. Basically, they’re gaining while you’re putting yourself in debt. So in the end, you have to pay what you withdrew plus some. Then if you fail to pay, your account is closed, it is reported to the Credit Bureau, and you can’t open an account at any other bank until it is paid. (Please catch that.)
That’s what it looks like when you constantly give and give and give and give. Others are benefitting, but you take that losing end of the stick in the long run. You do not have to accept being used. Please know that you are worthy of everything you give. You deserve the same love you show and give others. You deserve the same effort you put forth. The same level of loyalty and consistency you give should also be reciprocated.
A person who truly loves and cares about you will not only withdraw but deposit as well. Stop driving across the world for people who aren’t even willing to reverse their cars out their driveways for you.
Know your worth!
Food for Thought: What you allow, continues and what you put up with, you end up with.
And if you are a person who is constantly making withdrawals from a person but you are not depositing, stop. If the tables were turned, how would you feel????
