I’m no good with money and I never will be, I’m such a failure. Money makes me panic. I do dumb things with money which causes me to worry and stress about money all the time.
Philippians 4:5-7 says, “The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.“
I’ll share the best way I’ve found to ditch all the fear and anxiety about money, which made me both confident with money and gave me peace that passes all understanding.
I also want to give you a simple worksheet that will help you have more peace about money as well.
I had so much anxiety about money for so many years
I was at the grocery store, next to the chocolate chips, and felt my chest squeeze tight as tears blurred my vision.
I’d just counted up my groceries and was going to overspend again.
I always overspend, why can’t I get this right? Where can I transfer money to pay for this? How am I going to cover that doctor’s bill due on Friday? I’m such a failure. Money is so stressful.
I had so much anxiety about money for so many years, have you ever felt this kind of anxiety about money? Tell me in the chat so I know I’m not alone.
We’re not even talking about how I felt as I sat down to try and figure out where my money had gone when I attempted to budget after 3 months of piling up receipts.
Having my own business and having to come up with enough money to support my family only made my anxiety that much worse.
Even talking about it right now, I can remember the physical feelings very vividly.

Something had to change because I couldn’t keep living under so much financial stress
I read lots of books. Went to workshops and events. Tried what felt like a million ways to manage my money.
Whenever I worked on my finances, I made the environment nicer with hot tea and soft relaxing music Gratitude lists every day.
While some helped for a short time, nothing I tried gave me confidence and peace. I’d find myself still struggling with anxiety about money later.
It wasn’t until I devoted myself to studying everything the Bible said about money, that something began to change

As I continued to learn and understand God’s heart for money, I experienced peace about money like I never had before.
Many Bible passages that mention money also address business and your beliefs about money.
