Someone sent me the following in an e-mail message. It had no title so I entitled it, “If.”
If the economy collapses, He is still my Provider!

He is my God. He is Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life!
Prayer: I am so glad that You are my God and You are the same yesterday, today and forever. The world I live in is so “iffy” it makes it hard to plan anything. You never change. You can handle any “if” that comes along. Amen!
