E2: I am able to get God’s perspective on life, politics, and the future. [Isaiah 46:10, Ephesians1:10]

A Story

Recently, in a small group, people expressed their fears about the new president and the liberal leadership that is going on. They were troubled by local government decisions. They found themselves turning to fear. The world situation and the threats to Israel made them feel like everything was falling apart. They wanted to get back to the old days.

Considering recent political situations some people have had a roller coaster ride of emotions. Some have had delight. Some have had fear. Some decided to hunker down and protect their family.  What should we do?
