My Suggestion

Pointy headed academics, business fat cats, and elected celebrities offer solutions to these turbulent economic times. Well, so do I. We need a saviour all right, but we are looking in the wrong place.

I suggest we stay away from innovative solutions and products of our own cleverness, and return to proven principles. I suggest that we remember Who is in charge, what Truth really is, and our place in the universe. I suggest we bow the knee, get to work, and put our confidence in Someone with real power.

This song by Natalie Grant is the idea. Here’s the video. Lyrics below for those who want to follow along.

__________________________________
I have been a wayward child,
I have acted out,
I have questioned sovereignty,
and had my share of doubts,

And though sometimes,
my prayers feel like their bouncing off the sky,
the hand that holds won’t let me go,
and is the reason why

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

Bitterness has plagued my heart,
many times before,
My life has been a broken glass,
and I have kept the score,
of all my shattered dreams,
and though it seemed,
that I was far too gone,
my brokenness helped me to see,
it’s grace I’m standing on.

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

And chaos in my life,
has been a badge I’ve worn,
and though I have been torn,
I will not be moved

I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But i will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

  1. Absolutely. There is only One True Hope. All else is a feable futile attempt to get ourselves out of the troubles we’ve created. You speak the truth.

  2. Not matter what faith one is, the basic truths are there: greed=bad, treat one another as you would want to be treated. Personally, I think ridding our government of both the republican and democratic parties and the control they have would be one huge step in the right direction. The change we need cannot happen with either of these parties. That’s my opinion.
