Pick Your Poison

My most recent blog post at my blog (Brooklyn Born Believer) which can be accessed from this site, quotes from a recent New York Times article titled, “End of the World Is A Bit Closer-Scientists Fear” by Sewell Chan. I wrote the blog entry last night which was a bad idea, because the thoughts expressed by the atomic scientists who keep track of “The Doomsday Clock,” irritate me, which is enough to keep me awake at night, combined with other unproductive thoughts. But anyhow with all my faith in God, I still get anxious about things and I shouldn’t because ultimately God is in control. I know that but still I worry about living in a fallen world and the great sin of pride which is everywhere.  But anyhow, if you read the blog or the article I quote from,  you will see that humankind has lots to be concerned about in the modern world. But Christians must live in hope. It is part of being a Christian. Trusting in God and having a positive attitude is essential for a peaceful life. And I do try……..most of the time.  NJA

Have no anxiety at all but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
