The Dow took a dive again today.
So are we headed for another great depression? Can America live without credit? Are we going to be forced to live within our means?
This guy said there would never be a depession and has now changed his tune.
This guy says their god has died.
I think this is all a good thing. Hard maybe but good. I just happen to be writing a book on Faith Lessons Learned on the Farm, here is an excerpt about what I have learned while gardening. I relate the garden to being us and well you know, Jesus is the gardener. He likes gardens.
The hardest lesson I have learned about gardening is that we like our gardens need some fertilizer. Manure is messy and smelly and no one likes it. But manure makes the best fertilizer. And when the ground is fertilized things grow. The fertilizer lesson is the hardest of all. Fertilizer represents hard times, and trials. We have to have it in order to grow good things, but it is messy , and it stinks. But if we allow the Lord to throw some manure into our gardens, and till us up, a Holy Harvest will come. A harvest of goodness, and abundance and love. His love is worth enduring any trial. His love is worth any lesson no matter how difficult. When our son died as a baby I had so much grace, and had never felt so much love. It is hard to explain how you can feel so much pain and so much love at the same time, but it is true. And I was changed forevermore. When trials come we have to let the Lord have His way, He will always produce something good in us. That is if we let Him.
Time to pray.
