Times around us may not be what we are accustomed to and things may very well get worse as far as the world ways are concerned. However, as Christians we have hope. We can trust God to turn this world crisis around to glorify His name.
Like many, I find myself asking questions. I'd like to share some of them with you in hope they will spark answers to encourage you today and in what times may lay ahead of us.
What if God will use the world crisis to bring even more people to Him? What if God will strengthen those that follow him and let them develop a more meaningful relationship with Him?
For America, what if this is what we have been praying for? A way to turn America back towards God? We already see unity like we haven't in years. God is good and he can bring good from any situation good or bad.
As long as we have Christ in our hearts and our lives, joy and peace is with us always. I'm finding it better to choose concentrating on the love and goodness of Christ instead of the doom and gloom of the world.
My most favorite 'what if' is, what if Christ returns before things get as bad as we can imagine? This is what I think and dwell on the most. I pray for His return and I'm remembering how God did pull His children out of dire situations according to the Bible. I'm finding myself at peace and excited over the possibility I may very well live to see Christ return. What an awesome sight and experience that will be!
