When the News is overwhelming how do you cope?

Each day comes with news of imminent collapse of the financial world, the economy is on the brink. The nations have all started the unthinkable and gearing up with more nukes and more military. There is no unity among our people in this nation or the world nations. Poverty rages, terrorist rule over peace now. In the midst of booming technology we are hearing of less jobs, and the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
Would God want us to be overwhelmed, fearful and anxious? What does He say to us to help us in these days where so much is happening that we are getting depressed and feeling like we are carrying a huge burden weakening our resolve?
Note:As I was coming out of the swimming pool building this morning at 5:45 am it was still totally dark. A mist of rain coming down. Yet I heard a bird singing in the dark.

That bird is singing because it knows the light of day is coming soon. He can not fly about yet, or eat to his hearts desire yet. But he sings. Day is coming and so is it for us. This may shock you but God is clearly Rejoicing!
Why? Because we are entering the most awesome time in His Holy Plan!!! The time God the Father and Christ the Son has worked so long for is about to happen! Christ is coming back! This is great news. Not sad, not what the world wants you to think. The world will be saved, the people will be redeemed and a new world order and peace will come soon! We have HOPE. We have GOD who is going to step in to save us all!
But not yet. As the bird sings it was not yet the light but dark. Not yet! But soon light would come. There are still things that must take place before Christ returns. By the way many "christians" talk you would think they do not want Christ to return. They say. "What can we do to stop this or that" ??
We cannot stop the tide. It is this tide of world chaos and sin that is leading to Christ's return just as HE SAID it would. Life is not as it was so lets gear up. It is war! War against the three S's. Satan, Society, and Self.
