The world as we know it

With the stock market volitility, banks failing seemingly daily, political campaign polls on a roller coaster ride, hurricanes and gold prices soaring, the world seems pretty crazy... right?

I remember hearing last year at this time, all of the sub-prime mortgage craziness while listening to the BBC, and at that time it seemed like the problem was "so far away."

As Christians, we need to use our common sense, whether that means removing our $$ from WaMu (as it might fail soon), or purchasing precious metal investments, or stocking up on food and non-perishables, et cetera.

But, at times like these, we especially need to remember the wonderful words from Psalms... "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea, though its waters roar and be troubled." Psalm 46:1-3

Let's remember Who's ultimately in control... of everything!
