There is the feeling of uncertainty and a lack of security that might not have been there before. I start to wonder about my mortgage – about whether or not I’ll be able to continue to put food on the table for my family. I know a lot of industry gets effected by recession but what about rock music? Do people still go to concerts if the stock market crashes? Sometimes I get the idea that insurance and savings plans will continue to supply me with stability and protection- safeguards and defense that will always be around. But now we’re all asking similar questions – what if the bottom drops out?
And then the bigger questions come for me – is this what I’m putting my hope in? Is my sense of security contingent upon what happens with stocks and bonds on a street in New York City? Or is there something else that I can depend on and put my confidence in?
For any disquieted souls like my own that are reading here – remember, we have a hope and a certainty. There is an economy called grace that won’t go into recession – grace won’t let you down. It’s possible to depend entirely on the wealth and resources of a kingdom that will never experience economic decline. Hope is with us in these hard times, in the rubble of our broken dreams and failed accomplishment – reminding us of sights yet unseen.
