Do not fear

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.

I am so glad you commented on the election. So many bloggers are sadly silent on it and seemingly oblivious. We need to be informed and PRAYING for our new president. I was stunned too and deeply saddened by the state of this union.... Anyway, thanks for not being silent on it and for putting your voice out there. I read your blog regularly. I enjoy your being so candid and honest and transparent and real. God bless you!

Jessica-
I think our Country has absolutely lost it's morals. I do not fear because I know that all things must come to pass before my Lord will come. I say Obama is an Obamanation... LOL. I don't care about his skin color, I care about what he stands for. I think it wouldn't have mattered to the people who he was as long as he was a Demacrat. The people wanted change, and CHANGE they will get! We all just need to know, that we are safe in the arms and covering of the Lord. Keep our eyes foreward and our goals on the narrow path that leads us to the stairway to Heaven to live forever with our God.
Furthermore, my thoughts on your move decision... Just make sure you move for the right reasons. My husband and I were in the same position as you are about a year and a half ago. We had no friends, our Church was dead, our kids did not come to visit, everything around us was counting against us. We realized that we were only going because we were chickening out on what God wanted us to do here. We realized this and we stayed. Our lives are now simple and fulfilled. We didn't change everyone. They are all still the same. We changed ourselves and the way we look at things. Make sure you are walking to do God's will, and not running from! Know what I mean?
By the way... Your hair is adorable!
Big Hugs and Blessings!
