Hillary will do the exact same to the USA ! Depend on it.
I have met so many weak, spineless people in my life who are so AFRAID of what other people may THINK of them ! I say: 'Who the heck even cares ?' If those people you are afraid of do not sign your paycheck, don't give them the time of day !! I keep repeating a fine scripture at Revelation 21: 8, about "Cowards" who are damned for eternity in the 'lake of fire.' While I realize that most of us have some hidden fears and anxiety.... the Holy Spirit gives us courage and strong convictions, so we should pray daily ! Where did Samson get all this strength --- from Vitamins or pumping iron at the local Gym ?? No, it was the Holy Spirit !
Even I have to constantly ask for "Balance" and not try to depend on my own resources, smarts, training, and Prepping ! The Lord will take care of me.... even if He allows me to die or get martyred ! Yes, even death 'is a way out -- and can be said to be merciful.' After all, do we Christians not believe that 'death is but a gateway to everlasting life... in one of two possible places ?? ???' And if we are truly Saved, we should have NO doubt as to where we are going after we die. I have had a long, active, good life, but also filled with sorrow and some regrets. So, while we try to live now and make every day count --- looking forward to life in heaven, with no more pain or suffering is a good thing.
When I was forced to go to a Rehab facility to heal, twice in the past 4 years U.P. here, I saw a very sad picture of old, crippled, lonely people, more or less "Ware Housed" and not treated very well in a town called Powers, MI. The food was nasty, and I didn't even eat much, and lost a few pounds [and that was good!]. But the super lonely mentality and hopelessness of the patients who were waiting to die... really got to my heart ! I was sad and pitied them. But I found out that most of them really 'knew the Lord' and viewed death as a great escape from their super structured, regimented life style !! They were really ready to die and go to heaven !!
