With the economy crashing as fast as I can make a pot of coffee, I can’t help but wondering what steps I should be taking to prepare myself. I mean, how well can you prepare for a great depression? And is there more to it than a depression on the way?
I can only speak for myself as a Christian when I say, I believe there is a LOT more to it than the fall of our financial status as a country. I believe it means we are actually living in the end days and we’ll see Christ’s return sooner than later. With that being said, the thought of the depression simply depresses me. Our days are numbered (in a stronger sense than living to die)
I found this article this morning. http://www.worldnetdaily.com Take a look at it if you have a minute. So much of it rings true and it doesn’t look good. I asked my husband to read it. His comment, “interesting”. For me, it’s frightening.
It’s odd. As a Christian, I should not fear Jesus’ return. It should be something I long for. Something I’m ready for. Truth is, it scares me. I know what’s coming. I know I’m ready in the sense that I’ve completely given my heart to Christ and am ready to meet Him. But I have a fear (as irrational as it may seem) that I will get there and not be able to locate my kids. We joke about my daughter hanging out at the feast, my youngest son hanging from a tree, and my oldest stalking DC talk to a live concert. Either way, what if I get there and I can’t find them. As odd as they may sound, I’m just not ready for the rapture for that reason.
As far as the depression. As a family, we are attempting to live on as little as possible. Looking into staying in a small house as apposed to buying a larger one with a larger payment. We’re storing food up and spending a lot of time in prayer.
What about you? What is your view on this? How are you preparing for the depression this country/world is headed for? Does the thought of the rapture bring you comfort or fear? Am I alone in my worries? Your comments and thoughts are no only welcomed but greatly needed today.
