Today there’s so much going on in the political world that well, lets face it, does not give me the most confidence in our government leadership. Now I’m not just talking about the so called leadership that we are supposed to have in Washington, D.C. either. I’m talking about all levels from homeowners associations, city, county, state, USA, with all other countries included and all levels that may be in between.
There seems to be no leadership as unemployment is going up, markets are going down, retirement plans are dropping, taxes are going up, it’s harder to make ends meet, crime rates are going up, and it seems like everyday there’s a new murder with many multiple killings and suicides increasing.
All that along with the things that I didn’t mention like the talks of (dependent upon who you listen to) global warming, global heating, earthquakes, volcanoes, swine flu, cancer, HIV, AIDS, along with a host of other stuff that could happen to you makes for a rather very scary world we live in doesn’t it? With the horror movies touch of today’s media it makes the world feel even more scary too!
Of all listed above, what are you afraid of? Or do you fear something which is not on that list?
Some people are afraid to die. Some people “say” that they do not fear death. Some people live their life as if to “say” that they do not fear death. These people all fear death. Do you?
You and I do not have to fear anything. We need to be afraid of nothing as long as we have placed our faith in God’s gift to us. Accepting God’s gift to you costs you nothing and is very freeing because you no longer need to be afraid.

God wants you and me to live our life here on earth knowing that He is in control of everything.
