I always ready my daily news on msn.com and came across this article from newsweek. http://www.newsweek.com/id/192583 I'm very disturbed and confused by this story.
It personally left me with a lot of questions. Is this the reason our nation is in such decline? Are we as christians putting to much stock in our president instead of relying on God to direct our future? Like it or not, Obama is our president, and God is sovereign, so why can we not trust his will (and I do believe it is his will, otherwise it would not be). It may be his will that our selfish, conceited nation fall, I don't know, but I trust that God will will be done. Why is one party considered more moral than the other? My views on politics, lawmaking, and world view in general have changed so dramatically in the past year. I once considered myself a liberal leaning moderate (not Republican, not Democrat). Now, I think I am more of a moderate conservative. I now use the bible as my strict reference instead of what's mainstream or based on MY feelings. It took much soul searching and bible reading and praying to get to this point. I ask you to join me, whatever your political stance is, to pray for our nation, our world, it's leaders, and our lawmakers.
Lord, God, you know the hearts and minds of every single person on this earth. Please guide us all in making decisions, both big and small. Help us Lord, to reach out to our neighbors, our community to give them your word. Lord, use us, your children, to be a beacon of light to those in the dark. We love you, God, we trust you God, with our lives, with our childrens lives, with all of our futures here on this earth and beyond. Help us carry out your will even if we do not understand it. Thank you Lord for the many blessings you give us. Please continue to bless our families, put your hands on our national and world leaders, help them see that your word IS the truth, the light, and the only way to make it through these tough times. We ask all these things in your precious name. Amen.
Love & Blessings to All!
