Economy Of Grace

There is the feeling of uncertainty and a lack of security that might not have been there before.  I start to wonder about my mortgage - about whether or not I'll be able to continue to put food on the table for my family.  I know a lot of industry gets effected by recession but what about rock music?  Do people still go to concerts if the stock market crashes?  Sometimes I get the idea that insurance and savings plans will continue to supply me with stability and protection- safeguards and defense that will always be around.  But now we're all asking similar questions - what if the bottom drops out?

And then the bigger questions come for me - is this what I'm putting my hope in?  Is my sense of security contingent upon what happens with stocks and bonds on a street in New York City?  Or is there something else that I can depend on and put my confidence in?

For any disquieted souls like my own that are reading here - remember, we have a hope and a certainty.  There is an economy called grace that won't go into recession - grace won't let you down.  It's possible to depend entirely on the wealth and resources of a kingdom that will never experience economic decline.  Hope is with us in these hard times, in the rubble of our broken dreams and failed accomplishment - reminding us of sights yet unseen.
