Dear Brother Jacob, I saw the message you posted that a $5 tithe was better than no tithe and it hit me right where I live. I have been living in such financial fear and even TERROR for some time now that it finally just moved into a dark depression. I just think of myself as poor and hopeless. But, I’ve been watching your 28 day series and getting my peace back again bit by bit.
Then I read your post and realized that it was time for me to start sowing some seeds of faith as I did many years ago when I was giving and of course doing much better. Somewhere along the way I got lost and dropped a lot of my spiritual practice which led to things just getting worse and worse.
So, I found your mailing address on your website and almost shamefully sent you those 3 single dollar bills. But, once I did that, I actually felt, well, better, more able. And I felt good because I know that you deserve to be paid for what you are giving us all so freely and I didn’t like feeling like a beggar just taking and never giving anymore - THAT really made me feel poor!
As I’m sure I don’t even need to tell you, I am in a completely different space now mentally and spiritually. I got out my Catherine Ponder books again and am cleaning out my closets and saying my affirmations out loud, as you remind us. Sure enough, probably before you even received the money in the mail, I received a card in the mail myself, with $300 from a relative as a late Christmas gift - someone who knew I had been struggling and wanted to send some help! So yes, this shit does indeed work IF I actually do it and live with faith instead of fear.
Thank you so much for the incredible work you are doing and for feeding us spiritual food so generously. You can expect more tithes from me now as I am back on my highlighted route and intend to tithe my way out of debt and depression! I’m a fan for life! Now, I am not just tithing to get, but in thanks to God for you and for this ministry.
In love and light and gratitude,
