Three weeks ago, I received a call from my unsaved sister telling me how discouraged she was in hearing on the news about the corruption that is so prevalent in our nation and around the world.  I had felt the same way.  I reminded myself & encouraged my sister that God is in control.  He is not incognizant of what is going on in this country, let alone other countries.  I had the opportunity to share with my sister several Bible passages.  John 14:1-2 says: Let not your heart be troubled:  ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions … I go to prepare a place for you.  Rev. 21:1 tells us that God will make all things new where God will dwell with us.  He will wipe away every tear.  There will be no more death, no more sorrow, & there will be eternal life in the New Jerusalem.  This Good News is what our missionaries share daily in 13 different countries.  May you have opportunities to share this hope with those who are discouraged and have no hope.
