Joan Baez wrote " Action is the Antidote to Despair". I think this is a part of the antidote and a very valid one, another part is faith and hope. I believe the full mix is: Faith in God, Hope for a better tomorrow and then take Action in setting the stage for God to work in your life and therefore having a better tomorrow. I know too many people that just say the have faith that God can do something for them and Hope He will do something and then wonder why year after year nothing changes. I can believe a lot of things, but unless I ACT on that belief nothing changes. So I tip my hat To Joan Baez, raise my hands to God in Faith and then put my shoulder to the wheel and Watch what The Lord can do!
