Dispelling the fear of money

The sense of swimming in God’s goodness opened the floodgates of supply for me.

On a recent Sentinel Watch podcast, London-based finance and business journalist Jasmine Birtles shared how she discovered the spiritual truths underpinning what money represents, and how this understanding helped her get out of debt, pay her bills, and establish her career as a freelancer. The following is an excerpt adapted from the recording featured on JSH-Online.com.

How do you pray in a practical way when you’re in debt and there seems to be no possibility of money coming in from anywhere? As a longtime freelancer, I’ve faced that situation a few times.

Prayer in Christian Science isn’t asking for money or for material things. It’s praying for a wider, deeper, more consistent understanding of the spiritual reality of God’s goodness—goodness that is not just big but infinite, a constant fountain of good. And when we gain even a little sense of that, it has to have expression in our lives.
