Roadmap

One of the first things that I appreciate about what I am getting into is the coaching that is becoming available.

Yes, I am paying $8.88 a month, however, this does come back in time.
There is also a push to start to invest on a monthly basis, something I want to do anyway.

I’ve wanted to learn for some time how to grow wealth. There is no end of programs and seminars on YouTube, or in person, that you can pay thousands for and maybe learn something useful.

Rather than having books on a shelf I may never read again, I have access to a coach, as part of subscribing to CPPC.

They are simple questions.

Make it grow

I don’t want to just talk about money here, but the purposes I want to put it towards.

This is making money work for us, rather than work on us. Working with money, rather than working for money. Of course, you have to make some money before you have any to put to work.

We all know how 1 Timothy 6:10 has been poorly used to demonize money when money itself is not evil, but only that the love of it leads to all sorts of evil, (not evil itself).

Money is a tool, and what do I want to use this tool for?

Too good to be true.

I had an Aunt that tried to get me into Amway back in the ’80s. I was on my way to YWAM in the Philippines at that time, so dodged that bullet.

Now a new friend, who is also an old friend is introducing me to some Finance Coaching. Is it a Ponzi Scheme, is it Multi-Level Marketing? We shall see.

I am going to share my experiences here, and at first blush, it sounds good enough to get our toes wet.

I hear you, “How much does ‘getting your toes wet’ cost?”

Where it begins

We have constantly been looking for better ways to do things, and whenever difficulty strikes, to look at it as an opportunity.

This is not about inviting success, or speaking attraction, or the power of positive thinking, but if you put your shoulders back and look at life in the eye, you can gain a sense of command, rather than waiting for the next thing out of left field to hit you.

COVID was an example in this, 2020 has been one of our most prosperous years, not because of stimulus cheques, but because we were able to engage a reset and look at life differently. It was about educating ourselves, and even using our entertainment time to not merely watch YouTube or NetFlix, but to watch things that taught us about investing.

Nothing quite equips you to learn than when your money is where you are learning. So I got the Robin Hood app, I brought a couple of shares in AMD, (I’m a geek, so I invested in something I already knew). It went up and it went down, I bought and sold a little so I could learn. Over a month and a few hours of research I made $5.00. Who can say I took a class that did not cost me, but actually paid them. Maybe 0.50c an hour, hey it’s a start.

Always using the principle that you only ever invest or play with money you CAN afford to lose, I then purchased a few Tesla shares when they were at about $800.00 each. This was before the split so think, $160.00 each, and these are now worth $600.00 each. So that was a lucky buy, but not totally luck, I had done a fair bit of research, that was why I did not sell them when they got to $900.00 either. This is a long-term investment, I don’t follow the market swings, that is not the point, I want to hold these for ten years. That is what my education has taught me.

  • My takeaway is never to stop Learning.
  • To only use the money you can afford to lose.
  • Take small risks to learn what they feel like, especially if they fail.
  • I have learnt so much from my failures I am planning some more.
  • And don’t let the euphoria of success make you think you know what you are doing!

Our God is too small.

I see many people “losing their faith” because the god of their childhood is eclipsed but their growing knowledge and understanding and their faith crumbles like a sandcastle before the incoming tide.

There is of course a big problem if your god is merely a sandcastle of experiences from your childhood, when in reality He is the creator of the tide.

At whatever time in your life, when you first profess a faith in God, why would you ever consideration that that declaration would be static?

I think we give god a name, we give him a compartment in our lives, and we tick that box off our list. God does not want a name, a cubbyhole or our autograph. It is simplistic to say he wants us, yet he does, as a disciple, as a follower, in an ever-expanding relationship of information, knowledge, understanding and wisdom.

Look at it this way.
We may have a lot of information entering our lives. Not all of it true real or useful. So rather than being a sandcastle against a tide, be the tide, be the beach, be the ocean.

If we do not bring new information into our lives, good or bad, useful or useless, obvious or vague, then our faith will become stagnant, this can lead to one’s faith atrophying.
As we acquire information, we will order it, knowingly or unknowingly, the information will become knowledge, and from that knowledge, we will continue to build our lives, build our faith. We are meant to examine this information and this knowledge, to refine it, test it, see if it holds up to the light of day, can stand the test of time, for it to become understanding. We will discard some information and reinforce other areas of information. As we practice our understanding of our knowledge from the information we have, so we build wisdom into our lives. Wisdom is the ability to tackle the contradicting buckets of information we receive, the differing understandings we glean from these processes and create a cohesive faith from realising we can hold two competing views simultaneously. Uniformity is not the goal of faith. God is so much bigger than this.

We do not need to be afraid of the information surrounding us. We do not need to stand in front of this wave of information as if we need to protect our sandcastle of God. That He is fragile and information and rationality might make Him go, poof. Rather stand next to the Creator of the Universe and let the two of you process information so that you gain knowledge, and from this knowledge understanding, so wisdom can flourish, and you can thrive.

How big is your God?


Is God Sovereign?

Is God Sovereign?
Is God in Control?
Does God know?

If you think these things are true, it does not remove the possibility that you will die a violent death.
Be it a car accident, a fall, a mugging, or a murder.

A quote I saw recently: I would rather take a very small risk of dying while FULL living my life, than risk nothing and live like I am already dead.

Our western society is obsessed with safety, of staying alive. Go to a hardware store and you will see the most ridiculous safety stickers on the most benign of things. Yet we are more obese than ever, intake insane abouts of sugar daily, super size everything and beginning to have a lower expected life span than the previous generation. It would seem as we live, we are no longer alive.

  • However, life is dangerous.
  • And our lives need to be lived.
  • And to avoid all dangers is to never live.
  • Try to mitigate dangers too much and you begin to mitigate living.
  • To be foolish is more dangerous than many dangers.
  • Today, if a young person dies, we now hold someone alive to blame. Now someone may be to blame, yet a young person, a young adult is responsible for their own lives.

Older adults think with the prefrontal cortex, the brain’s rational part. This is the part of the brain that responds to situations with good judgment and an awareness of long-term consequences. However, it often takes living experiences, from our amygdala, the emotional part of the brain, before we learn the values of the prefrontal cortex, and start living from that.
It is a sad truth that many learn to live from their prefrontal cortex as a result of watching others live from their amygdala, as they held their friend’s beer.

So even if the decision making part of their brain is not fully developed, we can not hold others responsible for our poor decision making, and object lessons of peers dying are far more powerful than any safety video.

Young people die from foolishness and folly and faithfulness. Older people do too.

This has been true for ever.
It is amazing that I am alive, since my grandfather, at the age of 20 was left for dead twice. He was in Gallipoli (WWI) and the first part of what happened was foolishness on his part. Putting his head above the parapet and saying, “Where are the Turks?” He got shot in the head. Being examined, and considered too critical he was put on the dead pile. His friend, last name of Wagg, saw that he was still alive, took them off the pile and back into the field hospital.
This I believe, happened twice.
Ernie was stabilized, transferred to the hospital ship, did a full recovery. He returned to New Zealand, married, ran a sheep farm for some 40 years, and had five children. Having retired, he lived to about 85. All that time carrying a bullet in his head.

A young person may seem to die from foolishness from our perspective, but from Gods it was faithfulness. Or we may see faithfulness in a person’s death, while God sees folly.

Who wants to have a conversation around God’s sovereignty, control and foreknowledge?

Did God know Judas was going to betray Jesus as an act of sovereign will or foreknowledge?

Monsters

Becoming the monster that the monster is afraid of.

We all have snakes in our lives.
Snakes in our garden.
The snake is not the problem.
The snake is a lie and a falsehood, no matter how physical it also is.
The problem is the power it has stolen from us and the power we have given it. The lies it has spread and the lies we accept a true.

The snake is a monster under the bed, hiding in the wardrobe. You don’t win over the snake by hiding from it, ignoring it, trying to appease it.

You win over the snake by making it afraid of you.
How ever much of a monster the snake is, you, with Father God behind you, makes you a far greater monster. Not a monster of darkness or lies, but a monster of unbearable light, of unbearable truth. If power is the hallmark of a monster, then God is the greatest monster of all. A monster of love, kindness, tenderness. A gentleness so powerful that nothing can stand before it, and you are way up on His shoulders.

From this position you swing a mightly sword to cut off the snake head.

And now you can help other to also become this monster to their snake.
