Coping With Tough Times

This are no easy time for Nigerians. The global economic crises is taking its toil on the citizens. Saying that the masses are getting impoverished may be an understatement as the Nigerian Naira value continues to fall against major foreign currency. That is bad news to the population of Nigeria that mostly rely on foreign goods.

Unfortunately, the various tiers of Governments are not helping matters with their various new economic and social policies. Instead of making adequate research to understand the plight of the citizens, government officials are attempting to implement laudable policies by the book.
This has added to the hardship being suffered by the average Nigerian. All around, I see people groaning under the heavy economic burden.

It seems nobody really know what to do. It reminds me of the situation that King David must have faced when he wrote that eternal piece in Psalm 121. It is time to look-up unto God for help and succor.
