Terror, Scary News Stories, and the Like... 

Have you noticed the increase in terror, violence, scary news stories and like lately? Often, sitting to watch the evening news, and sometimes listening to the news on the radio, can be a scary experience.

First, it's the news story, then it's an analysis, then it's an analysis of the analysis, then it a behind the scenes, then it's a "what we didn't know and are just finding out," then it's an analysis of that, and many more variations of the same kind of who didn't do what and why it wasn't done with who all else should have. All the while adding a bit more stress than the story before or leaving you wondering if it could happen again and where you are living.

And, it can place quite a bit of stress on a person if they aren't careful. To me, it wouldn't be so bad if the news story weren't repeated many times over creating more stress or worry or concerns on a person.

A few years ago, I put a limit on how much news I watch or listen to on the radio.  I was tired of hearing about all the horrible things happening in the world. While I need to know what's going on, I don't need to know it every minute I turn on the news.

However, one thing I noticed was the calm presence I always have in my heart as I would go about life after hearing these news stories. Amidst all the craziness of the news, I would have a reassurance of God's Love and comfort for me in my heart.

With God, there isn't anything in the world to worry about.   While being a Christian isn't a guarantee of a perfect, smooth, sweet life with no problems, no headaches, no heartaches, it is a guarantee of God's Comfort and Love for you, in your heart-

God's Plan of Salvation is best life for you- if you'd like to learn more, please visit, Peace With God.
