Friday 4.1.11

There seems to be alot of anxiety and fear floating around these days.  You turn on the news and hear there may be some radiation found in milk.  Along with a string of more bad news all crammed in before your local weather in nine minutes.  Why does America feed off bad news?  The only way to overcome this negative mind set is to focus on the Good News found in the Bible.  It is alot more comforting and you can leave your house with encouragement rather than discouragement.  

  Surely he has done great things! 
  Do not be afraid, land of Judah;
   be glad and rejoice.
Surely the LORD has done great things! 
  Do not be afraid, you wild animals,
   for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green.
The trees are bearing their fruit;
   the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. 
Be glad, people of Zion,
   rejoice in the LORD your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
   because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
   both autumn and spring rains, as before. 
The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
   the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
   the great locust and the young locust
   the other locusts and the locust swarm
my great army that I sent among you. 
 Joel 2:21-25
