With increasing taxes; rising gas prices; lay-offs; pay-cuts; demotions, fewer jobs and inadequate assistance from the government: what would you do this very second, if you knew you were going to lose everything you own and have worked hard for? How confident are you that the people in your life would help you, if you were to face genuine hardship tomorrow? How sure are you of their support, understanding and compassion in your time of need? Would you be willing to trust God with it all?

Absolutely, hope/ pray for the best, prepare and have Faith when the worst comes. I agree, the unwillingness to let go of greed and selfishness can and will destroy us as a whole-especially without God's top place in our lives.
Thanks for your insight and for sharing your experience . I know you have gained much wisdom through it all. My hope is that this will only help encourage others who find themselves in this place. (As I have been there too.)

Again, what would you do if you found yourself faced with hardship today, what would your reaction be? Let's keep it about you, not insult other people's outlook on life. Thanks!
Sadly, @nightwork4, thinks God's purpose is something to suit his own needs. He doesn't realize that God created us in His image and likeness, and that God is not Homo sapiens. The Flood was sent to save His children, not the temporary human vessels.
i'm not insulting anyone, i'm be a realist. i've faced hardship many times and i know plenty about it. because this hope god will save me sounds absurd, i'm going to voice it. have you ever lived on the streets? i have and god wasn't even a thought.
@nightwork4, thanks for keeping it, "I & me" statements.in this comment. Yes, I have & have been homeless many times since age 4 My own experience is, God was faithful to provide when I believed in Him, despite MY bad choices.
