I think that you are so very correct we live in very troubled times but we must remain steadfast and vigilant! We can not waver from our beliefs and the promises of God. In a way we need to constantly reminded that our path should always have God in it. Many times people feel disconnected and it takes a sermon at church or synagogue to get us to be the leaders we all have the capacity to be. We all want to be in the land of milk and honey and that is why this work is so important for the Kingdom of God.
