I asked myself this a lot of times, "Why do I need to earn something?". Is it not that God can supply my simple daily needs? I am eating well even without working because I am fed at home. My family is taking care of me the best they possibly could even if they, too, are in want. Yet, why?
Just this morning, I had the answer. In fact, I had many answers! I want to earn to be able to share my finances with God through the church and its ministries. Then, I also want to help my fiancee with finances later because we are planning to do full ministry after our marriage soon. Besides, I have medicine maintenance and other personal needs that would be additional financial burden to my married brothers and sister, if I would rely on then solely. Furthermore, I was used to earning better compensation as a college instructor before the stroke and was helping some of my family members, too. Unfortunately, there was no pension because I was only 8 years in teaching service. I still want to help my family when they need financial help. I had seen my brothers and their families in need. My heart ached for them. I want to do something...
I am paralyzed halfway now, but I can still use the computer and its internet services. I may not be an expert, but I can learn more than the basics. I had been asking trustworthy friends to provide me information about legitimate online jobs, but I got no answer from them. You see, I have a slight slur that hinders me from giving tutorial lessons in Mathematics locally or online. This should have been earning opportunities.
Later this week, I saw how people earned much through blogs. They are the "unknowing" people who encourage me to create my own blog with earning possibilities. I am not asking for tremendous earnings. I only want to be able to do this, earn and love what I am doing plus more extra time to do what I want to do best - God's ministry now and in the near future.
Honestly, I don't know how to earn through blogging. I even had difficulty with AdSense ones for reasons I did not understand. I am really new to earning while blogging! But, I pray that some very friendly and honest people online could help me start this new endeavor to the right direction soon. I know God will repay them for helping me. As for some who would be please to do the opposite, may the good Lord do to them what they would deserve.
