A Word on Wednesday:

 
The liberal world is shocked by the results of the 2016 Presidential election.  While I couldn’t comprehend why anyone would vote for Hillary Clinton, I do understand the disappointment.   I felt it for the previous two elections, neither of which I prayed nearly as diligently as I did for this one, and I feel certain that many others walked that same prayerful path.

This election wasn’t about the man, it was/is about our future.  Not everyone understands that…yet.  But it is not the time to pridefully gloat, nor should we be resting on our laurels.  Now, more than ever, we need to pray.  We are still battling for our country, and the battle is fierce.  Do not think that the enemy of our souls just threw up his dirty hands up and walked away because of the results of this election!  Today, with Donald Trump as our President Elect (NOT our savior), tolerance is still a lie, lies are still called truth, Truth is still called hate, and hate is still prevalent.  There is a lot of work to be done to heal the great divide…a seemingly impossible task to the human mind, but with God, all things are possible…Godpossible! 

The way to begin to heal America’s division is with prayer.   We keep the wounds gaping when we argue.  We will not change a person’s mind about abortion, our words won’t persuade them that God’s way is best (God proves Himself just everyday), and they will not believe a victory was scored with this election, so don’t be a thorn in their sides trying to convince them.   

The Bible tells us, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”  Do we want our nation to belong to the Lord? We have to start with ourselves, each one of us individually!  Get in the position God set aside for you.  The body of Christ must come together as one body.  That means that the Pentecostals and the Churches of Christ, the Baptists and the Presbyterians, the Catholics and the Charismatics, all of us…ALL of us…must come together and be one family.  For Heaven’s sake, we must never judge or argue with another brother or sister in Christ because they don’t have the same traditions as our own!
 

 
Focus on sowing seeds:  Be nice.  Be helpful.  Be complimentary and less judgmental.  Be giving.  Be a light.  Be prayerful.  Don’t get caught up in a war of words (or a battle of Facebook comments).  I promise, you will only make each other mad.  Scatter your seeds and pray over the harvest.   
We cannot talk the talk if we don’t walk the walk. 
Sow a seed of kindness in someone you don’t like.
Start planting today!    

My Friends, my brother and sisters in Christ…time is short!  The world is dark, and we must be the light…the salt of the earth.   Please keep praying.

  3. What a beautiful, wise and needed post. I agree with every single word. Especially about not trying to argue anyone into agreement, but being a light and praying.
