While driving to work this morning, I was listening to Congressman Souder on the radio talking about President Obama's economic plans. Souder believes that Obama's policies will eventually lead us into a genuine depression.
Up until now, the credit crunch could have been fixed--albeit painfully so--but yes, fixed. But Obama is taking a fixable problem and making it worse.
For all his complaints about the deficit President Bush handed off to him, so far President Obama's deficit in the first 2 months of his administration is equal to the one Bush accumulated in his first 5 years.
Great to hear! (I do tend to put a lot of stock in Congressman Souder's opinions.)
But then I reviewed some memory verses today, and they were soothing medicine to an anxious soul:
12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Phil. 4:12 (NIV)
7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Pet. 5:7 (NIV)
25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Matt. 6:25-27 (NIV)
5Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
"Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."
6So we say with confidence,
"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?" Heb. 13:5-6 (NIV)
