A godly economy?

An oxymoron? I don’t really think so! It’s hard to believe – right now – that God is in any part of this economy. For so many folks losing their jobs, their homes, and their self-esteem, it just doesn’t look like it could be in God’s will.

Nevertheless, God made all humankind to make creative choices. Sometimes we listen to Him and make good choices, other times, like the children we are, we make poor choices which affect everyone around us.

Consider the lilies of the field … and the birds of the air.” God has continually cared for them and provided for them just what they needed! Not necessarily what they desired, but what He knew they really needed.

When we seek His will, He doesn’t always say “yes.” He’s God. He’s free to say “no,”  or even to say “this isn’t the right time.” But we want what we ask for when we want it. and we don’t ask for it until we want it now!

Our economies stretch beyond what we have – or don’t have – in our wallets at any one time. Our economies are all the choices we make and how they affect us and others. God wants us to utilize that freewill and, hopefully, make good choices. This doesn’t always happy.

Due to a series of events of a number of years, our son took his own life on June 22 this past year. It was a bad choice. We ask how God He could let this happen But, God allowed our Charlie to commit suicide in order to get rid of a lot of physical, emotional, and spiritual pain.

We are all grieving in our own ways. Probably his mother the most. I had a vision, early on, of him in Jesus’ presence, patting himself down, and saying, “It doesn’t hurt here any more, it doesn’t here anymore. Even my brain doesn’t hurt.” This knowledge that he is in God’s presence has/ is helping me through this time of grief.

Blessings and Peace to you all.
