Election

This election has touched many a nerve…including some of mine :).

At the end of the day, we have to get down  to the basics…

  1. We have to pray.  If we pray earnestly, God will lead us in our voting.
  2. We have to remember that He is in charge, no matter who is elected.
  3. We  have to remember:
  • There is not a perfect candidate…there’s just not.
  • There is not one perfect human being…and one human being will lead our country…it’s just so
  • There is one candidate who has more of what you value than the rest…there just is.

For me, I have 3 big reasons in wanting the world to change…and they ride in my car with me everyday.  I want the world better for them, starting with this country.

For me, I also have 3 important values that I display on my car that ride “with me” everyday.  Pro-God, Pro-Gun, Pro-Life.  There is only one candidate that meets all of those criteria.  Not a perfect candidate by any means…but one who wants things to change.

You may have different criteria.  That doesn’t bother me as much as it might bother others.  But I will plead with you, as I have on here before.  Please pray before you vote!  And listen to what God tells you…even if it goes against what you “think”…do what He knows.

Special News Report

I had about 15 minutes to sit down during the day today.  I sat down with my 2 hour late lunch, put on the tv to not think for a couple minutes, and…there is a Special News Report.  And it was not one that made me enjoy sitting down.  I took it as a sign that I was not yet supposed to have a break in the day.

A leader of a nation should not directly separate the country.  Of course we all have different views.  He may be the leader, but his opinion does not reflect the entire country.  I give credit to the Republican leaders who are standing up for those they represent.  The plan on the table is certainly not one in which the whole country agrees.  It is not a plan that is healthy for the country as a whole and for a leader to point fingers at one side because they do not agree with him is appalling.  Leaders are supposed to bring their people together, not tear them apart.  A confident leader would be able to lead by example, be okay with people disagreeing with him and make a plan to join forces instead of putting the blame on everyone but himself.  It is interesting, the book I just finished reading spoke of how leaders can rule with words.  They can make people afraid of things they should not fear, make them bold when they should be cautious, and make them feel guilty for not following their lead.  Words are powerful things…they can build up…they can destroy.

We all have the capability to discern these words  I pray they are pondered before they are followed blindly.
