Let's face the facts; our country is screwed. Our country is so far in dept that it is not only going to effect the people alive now, but generations to come. It's pretty messed up when the country is borrowing money to pay off debts and "bail out" big businesses who use the money to give out bonuses. Our President is NOT Jesus the Christ, therefore, no matter how many stimulus packages and 'financial aid plans' he creates, he will not "save" us. No where in the Bible does it say that "Barack Obama will become the President of the United States in 2009 and save the entire world without even breaking a sweat."
In times of turmoil, people generally begin to lament their problems and ask themselves why bad things are happening to them. Some people ask "where God is" and "why he isn't helping them." People's faith and belief begins to diminish. Because we're human, I'm sure all these thoughts have been through our minds at least once in our lifetime. It's only natural to wonder why bad things happen to people. I know I have.
During times of distress, do NOT turn away from God. God is the perfect remedy for trials and tribulation. He does not give you more then you can handle--after all, you ARE his child. Would your parents want you to be swimming in pains that you cannot bear? In D&C 58:4, is says "For after much tribulation come the blessings." When life knocks you down on your knees, just remember you're in the perfect position to pray to our Father in Heaven!
In time of recession, don't let your faith in God receed. Just remember that he is our Father and that He is always, always, always there for us.
