Votes are in

Well, all the votes have been cast, and America has made her choice. I will admit that I had a sinking feeling in my stomach for most of the night. I was mostly just sad. I feel like there is so much that we don’t know about him. I will admit that it’s pretty cool that we have a Black man as president. That in itself is a huge step for America, and I think we have just watched the history books being written. I just wish he could have been a black man who who wasn’t for abortion, who didn’t want to play the role of Robin Hood, and who didn’t want to make us a socialist nation.

OK, OK!!! I’ve said my peace, and I’m going to shut up about it now! Ultimately, God is sovereign, and I trust that He knows what He is doing. Unfortunately, sometimes He gives people what they ask for, and we have asked for this. The fact of the matter is that Barack is our president, and he needs our prayers. So here is what I’m asking: If you are a praying person, join with me to lift up our country and our president.

I know that you’ve heard me talk a lot lately about what’s going on in my heart. I’m sure many of you are sick of it, but too bad! I can’t help but talk about it!! Do you know the sceen in Jurassic Park when the boy is in the Jeep, and the glass of water has a ripple in it, and he knows something enormous is on its way? I think that we are on the verge of something big happening. I think that God is in the process of opening peoples eyes to His truth. I will admit that I’ve been asleep for the past 5 years. It’s like I’ve been living in a fog, and didn’t even know it. I’ve been like a robot who punches a time clock at the door of my church. By His grace, He chose to open my eyes to my disobedient heart, and draw me back to Himself. All that to say, I don’t think I’m the only one. Here is the deal…..I realize that by saying this, people are going to think I’m a radical, backwoods, hick who clings to my religion. I guess I don’t care anymore I cared about a year ago, but I don’t care anymore. I think this week God is showing me not to put my hope in what is seen, but what is unseen. That is so stinkin’ hard to do, b/c I really love life. I love my house, and my clothes, my car and my big fat diamond ring. I want to hold loosely to all these things though. I don’t want to love them, and If I need to give them all away, I want to be totally willing to do that……
