Money Stress During the Pandemic
Today’s Coronavirus spread has created unprecedented stress and anxiety about money to so many people all over the world.
“No work, no money, almost no food to eat,” texted a father of five.
That was how he described his present state after he “lost” his job at the start of the government-enforced nationwide mandatory lockdown and home quarantine.
If this pandemic is further left unchecked or uncontrolled, the world economy is bound to get crushed.
It hurts to realize that that can leave millions hungry, unemployed, and in danger of mental breakdowns.
Indeed, this special financial emergency demands resourcefulness. A problem-solving attitude and determination.
It’s also a time of creatively risking in faith, because if you don’t, you will never gain anything.
The blocked individual is going to be psychologically handicapped by low self esteem and confidence when the heart of Depression comes.
A man can stab himself to death out of frustration because he couldn’t support his family - that’s how bad it can get when the level of faith and self trust is too low.
So the first step to overcome the worsening money stress during the pandemic is to stop feeling sorry for your self, and use your brain.
It has nothing to do with your circumstances, such as lack of work or dwindling savings.
It has to do with YOU ... what you are.
And that’s about all there is to it where you need to begin - your stable personal faith that you can solve the looming pandemic-caused financial crisis when it hits you.
“But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 4:19
