Despite all of the gloom and doom of a failing economy, high unemployment and lack of affordable housing, there are some rays of hope that are encouraging.
I know you must think that I am crazy to be positive in this fallen world we live in. But did you notice that the bus monitor back East who was bullied by the children on the bus was gifted with donations of $500,000 after the viewing of the incident?
This outpouring of compassion makes me believe that all is not lost in the world, and people still do care about one another.
One other event caught my eye last week. Nik Wallenda, the great-grandson of the great circus performer Karl Wallenda, went across Niagara Falls on a tightrope in about 30 minutes. Mr. Wallenda is the only person in history to ever do that.
So, where’s the encouragement? Mr. Wallenda, throughout his crossing, praised the Lord on worldwide television. I was thrilled to hear such a wonderful testimony. There is one lesson to be learned from all of this: Trust in the Lord for everything, because He will never fail you.
