- It doesn’t matter how much or how little money I have at any one time, there’s always an underlying fear of not having enough—either now, or in the future. That’s been a constant for about 40 years. I have two part-time jobs, one at a church and one as a musician. I had three, but quit my “day” job about 2 years ago to be able to focus more on the music, and it has worked out. I had the feeling that I’d be leaving about a year or two before I quit my job. Now there’s a possibility that the church may close next year, and I’ve been feeling that pretty strongly for the past year. A kind of trust fund has kicked in that will replace the income from the Church, but I still have that undercurrent of fear or lack. How can I, finally, work through this?
- For a while I have been struggling with the idea that having and saving food, water, and other supplies for emergency situations is not having faith that God will provide you with all that you will need in those times. Could You please inform me on the difference between hoarding food, saving food, and keeping it for emergency situations? Likewise, could you please explain the difference between hoarding money and saving money, either for saving to buy a house/car/clothes/etc., or emergency situations like hospital/dentist/repairs/unexpected bills/etc.
