My Thoughts

With the elections coming up my mind has been racing!! So many ads, signs and low-blow ad campaigns have been flooding my eyesight. I fear for this country and where it could be headed in the next 4 years. So many people have been fooled or are blinded by money. When it all comes down to it its all revolving about money. My husband and I were running errands yesterday and our chatter led to a deep discussion of America. We are spoiled bratty little children. How far we have come from those early colonials who risked their lives and everything they had to freely worship the Lord. Now in this day and age we are willing to risk everything we have to push God out. We are willing to sell our souls for a few extra dollars in our pockets. But lets be honest... do you think we will get those dollars? Can our class president from High School REALLY get us Filet Mignon for lunch every day? He promised to during election time. He stroked us with fancy words and bleached smiles but in the end their really is only so much He could do. The bible says in Matthew 6:19-21 not to store up treasures on earth where moth and rust destroy but store up treasures in heaven no one can take it away. For where your treasure is... there your heart will be also...
Timothy 6:9-10 also says "People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge man into ruin and destruction.For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, some people eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many grief..."
 What does this have to do with elections??? EVERYTHING!! Don't vote your pocketbook, vote your morals. If people respect the sanctity of marriage, respect the life of others, respect the Lord as ruler of all and base their decisions on THAT, we will turn this country around therefore pleasing the Lord and receive His blessings which will pour out of heaven. His blessings are above and beyond ANYTHING a human could promise us.
2 Chronicles 7:14 CLEARLY  states..." If my people, who are called by my name, will seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land."
 WOW what a profound statement. There has never been greater a time than now for a healing in this country... from the economy,environment and morally.
Lets think of our children, our grandchildren... what kind of world do you want for them? What kind of moral choices do you want them to see? What is right and wrong will no longer be black and white if we continue to chip away. There will be no more peace and contentment if we live in a world where everything goes. When will this end? Where do we draw the line?
 My hearts prayer is that people don't look to humans to be their "savior" from financial ruin or for a better economy. When has man ever done things great? We still have wars...fighting killing. In fact its only gotten worse. We need to look up towards heaven and start healing this land. We need to vote what is right and we will see CHANGE!! True change, change only God can give. He is known  as the prince of PEACE... and boy do we need that!
 One day everyone will stand before the Lord. Whether you believe in him now or not. Everyone dies, everyone goes before Him. I never want to stand in His presence and have to give an account for my wrong decisions. When asked where my heart lies... I want Him to see that it stays with the "good."
 So before you go to the poles really think about your decision. Your vote does not simply count for 4 years, it counts for eternity (whether you want to acknowledge that or not) It counts for your children, born, unborn or half born. It counts towards the wishes and prayers of our forefathers, and the true desires of our hearts.
 We are SOO blessed to live in a country so rich even though we seem to struggle. We have food, freedom and life. Lets keep it that way and continue getting the blessings we deserve before its too late.
