While passing a church the other day I saw a sign that said “Worry Ends Where Faith Begins.” It suddenly struck me that this is true in so many situations. There are a number of things that worry us. Depending on nature of the worry, once we take them to people in whom we have faith, our worries often end.
If you have worries about your health, such as an unexplained pain or other ailment, you begin to worry. You take your worry to your doctor. Perhaps the doctor tells you that it’s just a muscle strain, or he prescribes medicine to fix what’s wrong. Your medical worry ends when your doctor fixes what’s wrong.
Maybe you are reminded that you have not updated your estate plan for years even though your family situation has changed a lot. You begin to realize that your estate will not go to the people who mean the most to you. Your worry ends when you have a proper will drawn up by an estate planning attorney.
Perhaps you share a worry common to many others, that you may some day run out of money. According to recent research, even people with very substantial wealth worry about it. Taking your worries to a financial planner may be the answer.
