My heart has compelled me to write down my feelings on the negative response we are hearing from the media and the political arena every day, every minute of the day. Why does news have to be bad all the time? It is so easy today to be negative and speak doom and gloom to everyone all of the time. Now it is being said that we live in an area that has the second highest rate of unemployment in the country. Businesses are closing their doors, schools are closing, the state is bankrupt. What about the good news? There are things happening everyday that deserve to be praised and honored. You never hear any of it, at least not on the news.

Having a Christian background, I have refused to be pulled in to all the negative garbage and choose to focus on all the positive things in my life. I choose to build up my faith in God and let His will be done in my life, not my will or mans will to take hold of my thoughts or feelings. Yes, I am being affected by what is going on in the world and yes my heart breaks for so many that have lost their jobs, homes, future and hope. I too have lost a job, income, medical benefits, retirement, etc. I choose to look at it as, a job is what I do and not who I am. I am so much more than any job I could have. God's word tells me, "My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." He didn't say some of my needs, He said all of my needs. What a gift! That includes paying my mortgage payments, food, gas, bills, clothes, etc. Luke 12:22-23, says: He said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothing."

This is the time to believe and build on your faith in the One who created you. I look at our daughter Faith and remember from where she came and where she received her name: Hebrews 11:1 "Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." You see, we were unable to have children and Faith is a gift from God to us. Yes, I am still concerned about her future and the impact that everything that is affecting her and her future, but I trust God and believe in Him to take care of her and my family.

Matthew 6:25-34 is a great scripture for Anxiety. I just want to quote Matthew 6:33-34 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

I could give you so much more, like Death and Life is in the power of the tongue. You get what you speak.

If you have finished reading this article I want you to know that there is hope and we need to count our blessings of all the good in our lives and focus on these things. I feel so much better that I have put my feelings in print and have opened up my heart to you. It may seem like preaching, well what can I say, "I AM ONE."

God loves you and He will never leave you or forsake you! Just believe and keep your faith strong, pray and believe you receive when you pray.
