Are you pessimistic or optimistic about the future? There is a lot happening in the world today that is cause for gloom and pessimism. Analyse things and you will realise godlessness, increase in immoral conduct, over throw of Godly-principles, obsession, lawlessness and selfishness are foundational flaws in our corrupt society, which is sick and failing.
On the other hand, the true children of God have optimism because of an endless future in Paradise, where there will be no sin, no sorrow, no suffering, no stigma.
Our trust through learning and adapting the principles of recovery as a way of living assures us ‘God is on the throne’. He is in command of everything and because of that we have a future certainty of our destination for eternity. The final solution is in His hands.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?
