I mean...look around! It's crazy if you sit back and observe the landscape of our nation.
The market has cut itself in half. Unemployment is over 8% and rising. Our president is making it rain money from the sky on irresponsible businesses. OUR taxes are paying for it, and WE will pay for it double-time when we have to face the inflation it causes. We are now ruled by an extremist, pro-death, anti-life ruler. While I don't want to get too inflammatory, I think it shall suffice to say that he is less-than-zealous about bringing justice to those who are (right now!) planning the obliteration of our nation. Let's close the detainment camps and stop interrogations. Perfect.
These times can be great for us, though. How? Well, it's certainly easy to err toward lukewarm when everything is going as planned. And when we're prospering. And when our fear-and-anxiety level is low. Well, take a good look around. Breathe it all in. Draw a picture. The way things are right now, well...they haven't been this way in a long while. And after this is over, we may just snap back to some sort of sanity. Or maybe not. Either way, what a perfect time to look around and think...every day...every hour..."OH, HOW BLESSED WE ARE TO HAVE THE ROCK, THE ONE, THE SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, AS OUR OWN!".
Nothing can shake that. Ever. The Dow can go to ZERO. Obama could set up concentration camps for 2-year olds, if he decides that they are not humans, either. The evil Islamic militants could nuke wall street. That won't change the fact that we're saved by grace through faith in CHRIST. So, what have we got to fear? Look around, and muster a good chuckle. All of this doom and gloom around us...It's all less relevant than it seems, in the big picture.
