    I don't know about you folks but sometimes I look at what's going on around me and in the world and it seems as if there's no way it can ever be set right again. The fairly new soft on criminals mentality that has put horrible people right back on the street. Outright crooked people in leadership positions. The list goes on and on. I used to firmly believe that good always comes out ahead in the long run but just like Santa Claus I've come to realize it's not true. I've been struggling with this for a while now and finally realized this stuff has to happen. The Bible said it would happen before the second coming of Christ. My wife and I talk about this often and pray about it often. Life may get difficult down the road but the end result will be Glorious. I hope you have found a way of coping with these frustrating times and are preparing for salvation too.

    70skylark350 Jesus loves you unconditionally

    I agree buddy. This world is totally out of control. It makes me sick but as you said, this is all foretold in the Bible. We are living in the end times. That in itself is my source of peace. I can’t imagine living in these times without Jesus in my life, in must be very scary for non believers. I actually look forward to the end as I know what awaits me and my family. The Bible says there will be a generation that does not die, in other words they will be taken from this world straight up with the father. I am no theologian but many biblical scholars believe that we are that generation.
    God Loves us all unconditionally. We are all his children. All we have to do is believe and ask him into our lives. That’s it, all sins are forgiven and have already been paid for by Jesus.
    There is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun. Tomorrow is not promised so be ready today!

    It is an incredibly exciting time! Watching the prophecies being fulfilled is some thing that people have waited for! We must put ourselves to work sharing the gospel so that the kingdom will be added to. I like this passage of scripture, it reminds me daily of the promise that we have in Christ Jesus!

    Keep one eye on the outside world, but your focus on what your doing. Change what you can, Accomplish what you must. Take advantage of each day.

    Works for me...

    People are waking up, the corruption will be exposed. Each day is a day closer to turning this world around and accountability for the evil ones. Message me if you are interested in more info.

    I think this is probably the key to not letting the insanity create unhealthy stress and through the roof blood pressure.

    My best advice is Psalm 46:10 KJV Bible. “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

    Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee

    I was thinking along these same lines. And, I was thinking about how to put it into words.
    But, then I read Jim's post.
    Jim said it best.

    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
    A boy was reading a murder mystery one day, and he became anxious about whether the heroine was going to live. To alleviate his anxiety, he read the last chapter and discovered that she survived!
    Afterwards, when he read that the villain was planning a dastardly deed, he chuckled to himself and thought, “If you knew what I know, you wouldn’t be so haughty.”
    Christians know the last chapter, and that helps us cope with the present. Indeed, the glories of the future can help dilute the sorrows of the present. The devil’s doom is pronounced in Genesis—and it’s executed in Revelation.

    Psalm 94:16,17
    16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? 17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. (KJV)

    Psalms 61:2
    When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

    Most of us know what it is to be overwhelmed in heart; emptied as when a man wipeth a dish and turneth it upside down; submerged and thrown on our beam ends like a vessel mastered by the storm.

    Discoveries of inward corruption will do this, if the Lord permits the great deep of our depravity to become troubled and cast up mire and dirt. Disappointments and heart-breaks will do this when billow after billow rolls over us, and we are like a broken shell hurled to and fro by the surf.

    Blessed be God, at such seasons we are not without an all-sufficient solace, our God is the harbour of weather-beaten sails, the hospice of forlorn pilgrims. Higher than we are is He, His mercy higher than our sins, His love higher than our thoughts. It is pitiful to see men putting their trust in something lower than themselves; but our confidence is fixed upon an exceeding high and glorious Lord. A Rock He is since He changes not, and a high Rock, because the tempests which overwhelm us roll far beneath at His feet; He is not disturbed by them, but rules them at His will. If we get under the shelter of this lofty Rock we may defy the hurricane; all is calm under the lee of that towering cliff.

    Alas! such is the confusion in which the troubled mind is often cast, that we need piloting to this divine shelter. Hence the prayer of the text. O Lord, our God, by Thy Holy Spirit, teach us the way of faith, lead us into Thy rest. The wind blows us out to sea, the helm answers not to our puny hand; Thou, Thou alone canst steer us over the bar between yon sunken rocks, safe into the fair haven. How dependent we are upon Thee - we need Thee to bring us to Thee. To be wisely directed and steered into safety and peace is Thy gift, and Thine alone. This night be pleased to deal well with Thy servants.
