If you are one of the unemployed who have been cut loose by the government, don’t despair. Do not fear. Do not fret. Just relax because if you are a child of God, there is hope. Now is a time to do something creative and let the God on the inside of you help you come up with incredible solutions to your problems. God has not forgotten you and I know that you will survive and that God will make a way just for you.
Just think if you are a US Citizen you live better than 40% of the world. Many countries in the world have no government assistance at all. No welfare, no unemployment insurance, no workman’s comp, no social security, no Medicaid or Medicare basically you are on your own to survive the best you can. Also, the average person in many countries only has about 10 hours of electricity. Can you imagine? Only 10 hours where the lights work and only 10 hours to surf the internet or read my blog!!!
Once an American unemployed person looks at their situation with a global perspective, they can be very thankful and bless their God that they are born in the USA. The United States is the first country to make a holiday of giving thanks to God for his blessings. Let’s continue in the tradition of the pilgrims and thank God even when we should be anxious. The bible says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Phillippians 4:6 (NIV)
