Feeling Anxious After The Chaos At The U.S. Capitol?

To use the words of a pastor that I trust, "Don't put your hope in the elephant or the donkey. They will let you down ALL THE TIME so put your hope in the Lamb. The elephant and donkey will come and go but the Lamb is forever."
We see what's going on in our country and think that it's over. Here's the thing, He was not surprised by what has been happening because He is never caught off-guard and He's got us.
God has changed the hearts of both kings and people like me and all we have to do is believe in Him. Max Lucado wrote something that helped me to feel less anxious during these troubling times. It has helped me to feel calm in the middle of this storm and I think it can help you too. I certainly don't think you'll feel worse...besides it's free to try.
