Jade Helm forces are consuming America. The economy is verge of collapse with our 18+ trillion dollar deficit, our 240 trillion dollar unfunded and mandated liabilities (e.g. social security) and we have had the bankers debt passed on to us and it totals a whopping $1.5 quadrillion dollar debt. America is sinking into the extreme depths of moral depravity. Government corruption is the norm, instead of the exception.

For a couple of days following spreading of the mulch, it really stinks up the backyard and it is hard to walk out back without experiencing an almost nauseating feeling. Yet, in a couple of weeks, we see plant growth that is a beautiful sight to behold and the smell has subsided. The moral of the story is that many times in life we have to go through the stinky poop in order to come out the other side tougher, more skillful, wiser, full of hope and much more resilient.
Resilience is one of the keys to living an abundant life. I have found that God uses the mulch in our lives to help us grow and to prepare for what he has in store for you.

Psalm 23:4 captures much of what it means to develop a sense of resilience as the Bible proclaims, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”…
