Change your focus to living in the here and now. I tend to get caught up in worldly affairs because, eventually, they will affect my life. However, I have to keep reminding myself that it could take a while for those changes to get to me, except for the gas prices, which seem to happen immediately. Don’t allow governmental news to cause you unhappiness or have it overwhelm you and take away your peace. We must trust the LORD and know that he has our best interest in mind. He has a plan, and when that falls into place where we can see the results, we will be overjoyed. Take heart, don’t let your anxiety get the best of you, and know that Jesus overcame the world; therefore, we must enter into his peace until he comes again.
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
