I look over my husband’s shoulder as he scrolls through blogs on his Droid –three steps to take to survive another great depression. Great stuff to look at just before I go to bed.
As I climb the stairs I think, Really, I just want to be happy. That’s all. I don’t want a great depression.
Crawling into bed I grab my Bible and open it to the Proverb of the day.
“He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.” (Proverbs 11:27 NIV)
Goodwill is defined as “pleasure, delight acceptance”. Yes, those are all the things I want. Those are the things I want for my kids.
So there is the answer to strap on my back as I bend into a bad economy. Seek good. It’s not building a bunker or an acre garden in the backyard. It’s not stuffing money under the mattress or hoarding stuff. What I need to weather a bad economy is to look for good today.
Hoard thankfulness. Tuck Bible truths away in my mind for that rainy day. Construct a bunker of obedience to God’s good ways. Hunker down and find ways to love as if my future depended on it.
