National Security, Financial Security, Personal Security, Spiritual Security. For me the last shall be first. If God is for me who can be against me....if He spared not His only son, will He not freely give us all things, nothing shall seperate us from the love of God in Christ. I rest securely on these and many other facets of the good news for all men.
I live in a gated community...not a persoanl goal but it has saved me from the fearful stream of salesmen, magazine subscriptions and home invasion cruisers.
I still remember the year we had enough money in savings not to go under if we got fired. I wish I could say it was my savvy saving but it was Laura's mothers estate. And it made a great deal of difference, and we have saved monthly and diligently over the years and I am very concerned about the economy and about poor decisions and greed destroying our efforts to retire with dignity. This is a huge issue, but I realize how many around the world have never had the blessings and opportunities we have enjoy.
I was chilled listening to Iran's Leader predict our "empires" downfall. God in whom I put my trust, you can slay me and I will serve you, you can allow us to taste the bitterness of our foolish ways, but please preserve this nation. Please hear our prayers, please give us wisdom and courage for the facing of these days. Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy on us.
