I haven't been interested at all in writing about politics. For one, we don't have any news channels, or TV channels period, so unless I seek it out online, I don't know a lot about what is going on. My mind is just too busy with other stuff to even think about.
I personally am very surprised that Obama won. I didn't think it was his time yet. I was pretty stunned frankly. People are so blinded to the truth.
I am not worried about myself, rather I am sad for the blind Americans that voted for him. If there was ever any doubt about the state of our values and morals as a country, it's very evident now what people care about. Themselves.
My husband is quite upset, and I told him, people who are God-less have no understanding of real value or truth. Moral relativism- you can have your truth and I can have mine; Hedonism-if it feels good do it; Humanism-man is god and that's it; Atheism- there is no God or higher authority, therefore no basis for truth.
Go back and read my posts about the History of Thanksgiving, and ultimately the history of the nation. They knew how much freedom cost; they completely understood what must happen in order for true liberty to be maintained. They fought for it, they had lived in religious persecution they fled and paid for our freedoms with their lives.
What about my grandfather, a pilot in WWII, who risked everything so that evil and tyranny could not win? Was it all for naught? Do people not see that freedom isn't free? We barely have freedom of speech anymore as it is, much less after the President brings about his 'changes'.
But you know what? We are not by ourselves. We have the Greater One living in us; God is in control, and we are living the most exciting time of all, the end times. It's so obvious now- we will get to see Revelation in action :)
No Christian should be worried- read and pray Psalms 91.
"A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the reward of the wicked." (somewhere in Psalm 91)
We can all pray that Obama's heart be changed- God made Nebuchadnezzar think he was a cow for seven years to get his attention, surely He can help Obama to make right choices for the country. All things are possible to them who believe.
