Twenty five years later, as we wrestle with the effects of the recent economic downturn, I've had to remind myself of a couple of things:
- Things aren't as bad as we may think, and
- we've been through economic downturns before and come out of them.
I've heard it said that it's only when we drain the swamp that we see the stumps. It's times like these that force us to refocus, to reset priorities, and to get creative. We look for ways to eliminate waste, become more efficient and reallocate our resources. We look for more creative ways to earn a living and we will be better for it. That's as it should be.
God is still in control and we need to act like we believe that.
