Does your blood pressure rise at the news of major falls in the stock market? If I were honest with you, I’d have to say, yes. It hurts to see that 1200+ points from the stock market could evaporate in a mere week or so.

Yet, I have to re-focus and ask myself: do I trust God for all things? Does He not give and take, and blessed be His name?

When I see thousands of dollars go down the drains, it’s heartbreaking, but I also know that God’s got it all under control. The stock market is merely an instrument, not salvation. Remembering that God is the one who provides for our needs, not the stock markets, is food for thought. I pray that I would trust God more each day, and rely not on my own ways.
