Now that we are all experiencing many problems especially in terms of economy and financial stability, do you think a goof future still awaits us all? Do you stay positive all this time amidst the crisis that the world is experiencing. Well, if you ask me, I am still hoping. We have no other way but to still hope that tomorrow will be brighter for us.

I'm not entirely sure what the future may bring, but I'm one of those who are optimistic. I much prefer to stay positive about the future and what it may bring. I really don't like to see things negatively. Yes, there may be some dark clouds in the future, but there will be some problems and we just have to work through them. However, life isn't just about some form of problem or complication.

I think we are all screwed. I hate to say it but I hope the economy slumps even more. I would like to buy a home, but I want the prices to drop a little more before I even think about getting one. People are loosing their jobs left and right, which is causing them to loose their homes as well and it sucks. Know one is buying homes because the job market is scrarce. I've heard of people lowering the purchase price of the home they are trying to sell because know one will buy it. who do you know in this present day do you know is going to put a down payment on a home that's selling for $4-500,000. It sucks to say it, but I wish there was a way the economy could slump without people loosing their jobs. I put the blame on some of the advanced technology that we use today. Everything is designed for us to spend money. take a look at the flat screen tv's. I think they say that pretty soon everyone will have to have them. Now they have the Blue ray dvd's. I want to know how longit's going to be before they say the only way to watch dvd's is to have a bluy ray dvd player. Now you have to get rid of all the stuff you had and get everything on blue ray. Look at the Ipods. It's a great invention, but now what do you do with all the cd's you have. Throw them away? I work for the post office. People pay there bills online, which cuts back the volume of mail. It sucks for me. I have a guy that lost his second job when I 1st started the postal service becsuse of the use of computers. He was replaced by some sort of computerized robot. technology is good and bad at the same time. Think of how many people lost their jobs when the use of computers really started taking over the world years ago. it affects everyone and it's sad.

Hi Neng! One of my favorite Hymns is "God Holds the Future in His Hand." It goes like this: Dread not the things that are ahead, The burdens great, the sinking sands, The thorns that o’er the path are spread, God holds the future in His hands. God holds the future in His hands And every heart He understands. On Him depend, He is your Friend, He holds the future in His hands. We know not what tomorrow hides, Of sun or storm or good or ill; We only know His dear hand guides, And He will be our Father still. His hand created earth and sky, The zephyrs and the storms that rage, And years to come and years gone by To Him are but an open page. Live close to Him and trust His love, Assured that while on earth we roam, Whate’er may come, He bends above To guide His children safely home. I have entrusted my future to God so there is no reason for me to worry about it anymore. I am therefore very positive that what whatever happens in the future God is in control. God holds the future and despite the economic crisis we are having I know that my God is bigger that all the crisis in the world. Indeed life may not always be smooth-sailing. Trials will come our way and indeed inevitable but one thing is certain though...we have a God and He holds our future in his Hand. What could be more powerful than the hands of God? Certainly none, so I have all the reasons to be calm and composed in the midst of all the crisis around. God bless!
