Is our world going to hell in a handbasket? Many think so. Maybe they’re right. We do know that a future tribulation will come upon the earth (see the book of Revelation), but the Lord never tells us when the Tribulation will occur. Some things in our society are actually going well. Take, for example, the potential for the Supreme Court overturning Roe.
This news came as a shocker for me. Many pro-life advocates have been working towards this day since Roe was decided in 1973. I never thought I would see Roe overturned, but it seems (keyword) that this will happen. Christians have prayed thousands (millions?) of prayers for the last fifty years that God would overturn Roe. God answers prayer. The anti-abortion fight is not over, but overturning Roe is a great step in the right direction.
In other words, it’s not all bad. Yes, we live in confusing times, but yes also, to God’s goodness in our lives. This means that we need to be thankful and not cynical, hopeful and not sullen. Don’t allow the news cycle to make you grumpy. If it does, turn it off! The Lord is still working. As that good song states, “Even when I don’t see it, You’re working. Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working. You never stop, You never stop working.” The end of the story is this: God always wins.
