I hate budgets… church budgets, work budgets, personal budgets; take them and do what you will and I will be grateful. I’m generally a spender and glad to be one. God gave me a great wife who balances me… though perhaps to her quiet frustration.
I mostly like to speak about God and His word on this blog… I might post a music video now and again that I ‘ve enjoyed and been blessed by, and often enough I’ll repost someone else’s blog…
But lately… and tonight, I can’t ignore the reality of current events… the economy… what lies ahead. Understand, I am not fearful… but I am desiring to be prudent and wise. My God is sovereign over all.
My hope? Always and forever in Jesus Christ and in who He is and what He did for me. He saved me. He did it personally… and He did it for many more than me… publically, historically, bodily, and eternally. He took my place and gave Himself to pay the penalty I owed for my sin… My hope will ALWAYS be in the Cross and the Ressurection of Jesus Christ, God’s Son. My Savior is seated with God the Father and HE reigns as King of kings and Lord of lords. This reality is key and of first importance over and against anything else that appears on this blog.
Back to the economy. Truly, I know little in this area. I want to be prudent and wise. I want to provide for my family and I want to stand as their protector. But… what I am hearing doesn’t sound too good.
So, I’m taking a different tact here and simply expressing my thoughts and concerns in limited manner and hoping that you…and others who you might send to this blog would have some good sound counsel to offer.
