A great reminder that our trust needs to remain steadfast in the Lord and not the downward spiral of the economy. Thanks for sharing! God bless!
Your prayer was terrific, but to be honest - for the rest, for this challenge story, instead of just posting news headline facts and scripture, (most that your readers would already know) I would have preferred a story more in your own words, that showed an example of someone depending on God and not situation or circumstance. Something that would have given a visual of the facts you so liberally present. Just my humble opinion.

That aside, if I were reading this in a newspaper or a Christian news print, I would have thought it very well written. Blessings!
I would like to apologize if my putting facts as I did, inside quotation marks offended in that it seemed I was questioning your facts, I was certainly not doing that! Your facts seemed absolute and well researched! I shouldnt have used the marks. What I was merely trying to stress was I felt like I was being hit with facts (tell) and had wished for more vision (show) of your articles wonderful message.
This is well researched, and (for a Christian reader) very reassuring. However, I'm a little frustrated - that in all the upheavals and delays that you have pointed out so clearly; and in the detail of God's provision in spite of the gloom - that for Christian readers there are few tools for us to express his invitation to non-believers to shift from their crumbling power bases and embrace the same privilege of being part of his family.
This is a great devo. I often joke that the thing I do best is worry. Thank you for the reminder to give my worries to God.
Excellent devotional on relying solely on God through thick and thin. All your problems in USA are mirrored here in the UK. Thanks!
I particularly like your choice of Scripture verse for the beginning and your encouraging words in the second half. I think you might summarize some of the facts in the first three paragraphs or even leave out the second and third paragraphs, but to be perfectly honest, a well developed portrayal of the facts did not bother me as I read this devotional that has encouragement because God is in charge.
thank you this was interesting for me and i loved the top and tailing with scripture. The economic downturn is also a source of much anxiety in the UK so it is relevant to all. I rather liked the documentary/factual approach myself as a welcome change from the fictional ... not that i am criticizing those that have chosen to write the other.. maybe a more Headline grabbing title would have suited this .. your one word title is a little bland.
As usual, your message is spot on. Well done.
