The World wants us to have it all, to have it now and to be be like everyone else. We all strive to dress the part, live the part and have the toys. So much that I spent an entire years salary ($66,000) gambling - trying to WIN more and more each time. Every time I left the casino - it was utter disappointment, anger at myself and a feeling of shame. What had I done, where was the money going to come from to pay my bills, take care of my children and make it to next payday. My solution - payday loans. That got me further and further behind. I was in a losing situation trying the 'Worlds' way. It was not until I turned back to God, accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior that my thinking changed. I instantly lost the desire to gamble and began so aware of the Lord's blessings that I wanted to do manage my resources to the best of my ability. If you are in any situation that you feel you can't get ahead or are ashamed of the activity - turn to Jesus to and ask him to take control of your life. Jesus will come into your life and forgive, remembering no more your past and welcome you back into relationship with Him. You don't have to live the World's way - there is a better way.
