The recent tumultuous weeks have me concerned and I can say sometimes I am afraid. I find myself flowing in and out of confident hope, to feeling scared and defeated.
Maybe you don’t feel the same way. I just struggle with the fact we are VERY divided. I wrestle with and am stumped by many people who believe that this election was completely fair. No fraud anywhere. Just accept that and give in.
Where has true truth gone? How did we lose the ability to rightly divide truth from a lie? When did lying become the truth? How will we EVER be able to tell truth again? Why is truth being hidden? Lied about? And most importantly who is behind this all?
I am grateful to God for giving me a good sense. Meters and red flags that go off when I encounter things that “don’t seem right”. These things have saved me more often than I can count. They are warnings and I need to heed them.
I know God has this all in his control, perfectly being played out according to his plan. But I don’t like what is coming if socialism takes over this beautiful republic. Socialism is selfishness. An “I will control it all and have all that I want, but you will have only what I say you can have, do what I say you can do and be who I say you can be, live, or eat.” “I keep the best for myself because I have decided you have ruined life here on earth through your living, so I will do your thinking and you shouldn’t think for yourself.”
I am so glad that there is freedom in Christ. He lets me make my own choices, encourages me in goodness and the Godly, loves me in my weaknesses, and welcomes me to his table no matter my skin color or talents. God’s love is our equality and our giftings don’t make us more special or valued more over someone else.
I am praying. Praying hard day and night. If you are a solid, Patriotic, Constitutional loving American, you won’t see this as a race to win for one political party, you’ll see this as life or death of freedom for the human race.
-Praying hard against a big giant with you.
