Months after Europe anointed candidate Obama the next leader of the free world, he faces a potential 'public relations disaster' there at next week's G20 summit.
Obama faces his first major international test next week when the world's largest economies meet at the G20 summit in London.
"I think as the president heads to Europe, he faces a huge public relations disaster,..."
"...Europe is increasingly turning against his massive spending plans, which most European leaders see as a destructive way to move forward for the global economy and will only add to a massive American debt burden," Gardiner told FOXNews.com.
A top European Union politician on Wednesday slammed Obama's plans for the U.S. to spend its way out of recession as "a way to hell."
Ouch! What a statement from the European Union! Obviously, we are not alone in the economic stew of bad judgements and dangerous spending sprees called "bail-outs"! The world banks are suffering as a result of Obama's economic (or lack of) policies. I use the plural (policies) because there is a new policy everyday.
There is a solution. There is a way . There is help and there is hope! The help and hope is through our Savior, Jesus Christ. WAIT! Before you go turn on OPRAH, listen a minute.
There was a small discussion two posts ago about the power of words and how Faith and words are connected. We talked about how God created the world and He framed it by Faith. As you know, God simply spoke the world into existence! Since we are made in His image, and we have been given the same powers (howbeit much weaker) as He, we can evidently create with words also!
Johns Hopkins Hospital has just come out with the revelation of a cancer study that says prayer and a positive frame of mind is as much a cure for cancer and other illnesses, as chemo! There have been studies of the brain that have shown that the part of the brain used in earnest prayer is used for NO OTHER PURPOSE! There is a special part of the brain that is activated by prayer that is not activated by any other means and that part of the brain releases endorphins!
I can think of no way to be full of Faith without being in a "pretty much" constant state of Prayer...can you? Saying "Now I lay me down to sleep..." over and over all day long or chanting some goofy monologue is not the answer. But thinking constantly with the thoughts of God. THOUGHTS THAT ARE UPLIFTING AND NOT THOUGHTS OF DESPAIR! Prayer is communion with God. Talk to Him. He knows every word you think...(did you know that Satan cannot read your mind?...just thought I'd mention that).
The same is true of your words. When you go home at night, tell you family what a great day you had! Praise the fact that you are all together! And, to your family, around the dinner table, or in general conversation with friends, speak your blessings! Talk to your family with hope and how the Lord is taking care of you.
Happiness and peace can prevail in the midst of all the horror of this world...yes! That is what is called "the peace that passeth understanding". Start using your Faith with words to make your family and yourself feel good! Change your attitude and create happiness and also create your future! Paint your future with the Faith God gave us. Faith is a substance! Remember? It is an unseen, invisible substance God used in creation and He says we are to have it too!!! Grab it! Take it! Use it! HAVE FAITH AND TALK TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT AND TELL IT IT INCREASE!
Silly? Well, lots of things of God sound silly to us, but are not. Tell your house that it is YOURS! Or, if it is up for sale, just because the times are rough, they do not have to be for you! God is your LORD...not the economy! Have Faith and use your thoughts... your words! Say what you want! Yell it! When you are alone, yell to God and to Jesus the things you want and ask your Angels to help also! God says the angels are standing around waiting for your commands! Use your Faith to create your future!
Before He left us to return again, Jesus said in John 14:14 (New Century Version)
14 "If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it."
Ask! Use your Faith. See if it is not the miracle you have needed. In these last days, God has promised to pour out His blessings on the Believers. These are not the TIMES OF YOUR TROUBLES! No! Do not accept sadness and fright. Fear is a sin and not of God! He will take care of you. Just ask Him and SAY what you want and need.
Yell it to the house top! In your car, in the shower, in your house!
"MY FUTURE IS PROSPEROUS AND GOD IS MY FATHER! I NEED A CAR FOR MY FAMILY! I NEED A CAR, LORD! I DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU WILL DO IT, BUT YOU PROMISED! JOHN 14:14!"
"MY FUTURE IS HAPPY! I AM BLESSED! I HAVE A JOB FOR MY FAMILY! I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU WILL DO IT GOD, BUT THAT COMPANY NEEDS ME! THEY DON'T KNOW IT YET, BUT THEY NEED ME! GIVE ME THE RIGHT WORDS! GIVE ME THE COURAGE TO TELL THEM HOW MUCH THEY NEED ME! YOU PROMISED! JOHN 14:14 ...AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS!"
Say what you want! Use your Faith and your words! DO IT NOW!!!
Whew!!! (I'm out of breath!)
