The Government has shut down; mass killings are on the rise; and we have a truancy epidemic among elementary school students. None of these things make sense. If you put your trust in man you will become even more disillusioned.


Every valley shall be filled - God will refresh us;
and every mountain and hill shall be brought low - God will give us strength to overcome;
and the crooked shall be made straight - God will provide clarity,
and the rough ways shall be made smooth - God is constantly refining us;
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God - because of what He does in us, if we repent and confess. Luke 3:5-6

Praise God.

This is the fulfillment of scripture (Isa 40:3-5) in the ministry of John, speaking of one greater than himself. Once all of these obstacles were removed, Jesus would come.

So if this world has you feeling parched, weak, disoriented and harsh, remember what God has come to do for you. Repent, Confess, Believe. Jesus came to provide relief.

Has the government shut down got you feeling down?


  1. Such a wonderful post!

    It doesn't have me down. It just has me confused as to why grown adults can't sit down and compromise with one another. These are the people who make our laws but they couldn't do this. Mind boggling is what it is for me.

  2. I agree with Faith. I, too, am bewildered why mature adults seem unable to find compromise. Holding fast to a position -- no matter how right you believe you are -- while your friend across the aisle holds onto his, is no way to get anything done. What pains me most, however, is that there are many people who have been furloughed or who are not receiving their expected paychecks. I think it is all quite sad. I am not down; I am disappointed in our elected officials and surprised by their callousness.


I love reading your comments; but please be kind. Unkind comments will be removed.
