Hip and squizz-
I must say I am a bit disappointed. With all that is going on and the obvious consequences of some recent governmental decisions, I'm now supposed to have faith in God that it will all work out.
Well, belief and faith are two different things. But I won't get deep into that.
I believe what I see coming is not going to be the company picnic.
I believe I have to take responsibility for myself and my own, because God does what He sees fit, and our ideas frequently don't match.
And I believe I am my brother's keeper, so I continue to speak up, if for no other reason, so MAYBE someone doesn't get blindsided by the economic disaster (and others) sure to come, if history is any teacher.
Stressed? Yes, a bit. Overanxious? I think not.
Sure, I can shut up and just wait for the storm on the horizon.
Or I can say what I mean and feel, and hope it keeps someone else from waking up hungry one day to find they can no longer afford what they had been able to, and looking at becoming another welfare recipient
Yeah, there's a great time of peace coming in my belief system, too.
On the other side of Hell.
I really had hoped there was something you could show me that I had missed- some reason to believe this will all be worked out, that our government knows what they are doing and soon the world would all be wonderful, or at least sane.
But there isn't, is there?
