Issa Shutdown

“Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering as though something strange were happening to you.” 1 Peter 4:12

As we enter into this 4th week of a government shutdown over 800,000 federal workers and contractors are starting to feel the consequences of the lapse in government funding. The feelings of anxiety about how to pay bills, disappointment in elected officials and depression over the entire situation are starting to become overwhelming. If you are a federal worker being furloughed knowing you will get paid on the back end is a small gleam of light; however for federal contractors the fact that you won’t receive any wages lost is daunting.

This blog post isn’t about providing any distasteful rhetoric towards the sitting Commander-In-Chief; who just so happens to be placing financial burdens on thousands of families and spiraling this country further in debt (Nope its not about that person). Rather, this post is about “(He) who is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Col 1:17). This post is about recognizing that some setbacks are setups for greater. It’s about understanding that sometimes the worst thing that happened to you, is the best thing that could have happened to you. This post is a reminder that one day you will look back and say I Survived and be glad!

Isaiah 9:6 says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”  I love this verse because it is a simple reminder that the weight of the world is on His shoulders. This is a profound truth for those who feel all of the side effects of this shutdown and feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Don’t be discouraged or dismayed; yet, restore your faith and trust in God knowing He has it all under control.

If you aren’t directly affected by the shutdown, check on your friends and loved ones who are, they are mentally, emotionally and financially juggling a whole lot.

Stay Encouraged!
