The Solutions to the Problems We Face Today… Start With an Individual Choice…

It is crazy out there, right now!!

We are facing problems from every angle…

We have civil unrest flaring up all over the world.

We have the US government printing money like it is going out of style, which will probably end up in major inflation at some point down the road.

We have people who are looking for answers and not getting them from who they think they should be getting them from, ie. the government, their employers.

We have a debate in the US, right now over what should be said and what should not be said on our air waves, ie. political correctness.

The problem with all the solutions that everyone is talking about with these scenarios is that they want OTHERS to change in order for them to be happy with the outcome.

This has always been the problem and always will be the problem. When you are relying on others to change in order for YOU to be happy, there are major consequences that come with that. For example:

1. Slavery – When you look outside of yourself for your happiness or your well being you open yourself up to becoming a slave to that group that you rely on for your happiness. When you give others the power to make you happy, you also give them the power to make you unhappy. You can not have one without the other.

2. Never being happy – When you sell yourself out to others for your happiness, you will never truly be happy in the long run. You may experience temporary happiness but this will come to an end when you have to start paying the price for your happiness. We always have to pay the price. There is never “something for nothing”. This is a false premise that we have been fed for a long time, but there is always a price to pay.

So what is the answer to the problems that we face today…

There is only ONE answer and there has always been ONE answer and that answer is to turn to God.

Period… end of story.

And beyond that, is to accept His Son Jesus Christ as our Savior and start to emulate the perfect example He set while He lived on this earth.

When we start to live our lives by loving one another as ourselves.

When we start to fill the needs of those around us, as Jesus did.

When we start to love others unconditionally as God loves us, our lives start to take on a different meaning.

When we start to submit to the fact that we are NOT in control and that God is, our lives will change in ways we can’t even imagine.

When we open our hearts and start to let Jesus work on and change our hearts, our life becomes a life of service and with that service comes great rewards. Rewards that we can not even imagine.

But this choice is the choice of the individual. It was God’s plan to give us free will to chose this life.

He presented a Gift to us, a Gift that all we have to do is accept by faith.

We have to admit that we do not have all the answers and we need His help. And then we need to open up our hearts to accept His help and to be changed. And with this change comes the answers, we ALL are looking for.

The choice is yours, are you going to be part of the solution or continue to be part of the problem.

I hope that you start to become part of the solution… Today!!!

As Always, Here’s to Your LifetoSuccess,

God Bless You,

John Clark
