I Am Hurt, but I am not slain

Common Sense Commentary:  "But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry." 2 Tim.4:5.

 The plight of Andrew Barton:
I am hurt, but I am not slain; I will lay me down and bleed a while, And then I will rise and fight again.

Our present crisis:
The problem most people have, with decisions and investing, is that they forget what they know to be true, and begin to listen to "experts" with an agenda. We know that the printing of fiat money (baseless paper) has exploded exponentially, and will continue to accelerate, with Europe now joining the race. So where does that always lead? Inflation!  Right now, inflation and deflation are hand in hand swinging down the lane.  Having brought us to this crisis, World Governments have NO OTHER SOLUTION to their massive debt, which they created, except inflating our currency or default.  The spark became a flame, the flame a conflagration.  At this irreversible juncture with calamity, all paper promises are highly combustible. Gold and silver are the most "convenient" way to store wealth that cannot be printed at will. A better way is "Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven..." Matt.6:20. If you have the "Joseph in Egypt" calling, you can do both.  Financially and physically speaking, the only thing worse than preparing for a crisis that does not happen, is not preparing for a crisis that does happen. Joseph prepared and saved his entire family. I believe all paper wealth has seen it's best days and won't be worth the paper it is printed on. Illustration... Weimar, Germany

Dont You Quit by Ralph Acosta

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It' when things seem worst that you must not quit.

I am hurt, but I am not slain; I will lay me down and bleed a while, And then I will rise and fight again.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (trials) ;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect (mature)and
entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4
