Screaming ‘campaign’ trucks with sing-song kindergarten teasing tactics driving through the neighborhood while I was having a smoothie on a beautiful sunny day. It made me so sad. I used to enjoy learning about candidates from both parties to decide who should get my vote. The behavior displayed in leadership and in our nation is so gross right now- it can make you depressed if you let it.
What weapon showed up first?
I had to remember that God is sovereign:
(Proverbs 16:9) The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes it.
What can I do right now?
Pray- 1 Timothy 2:1-4 says First of all then I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful life, godly and dignified in every way...
I prayed that the President and everyone promoting hateful and greedy agendas would be used mightily by God and that God would be glorified through these people. I praised God for the friend that stopped by. She is a unicorn in a field of horses and she needed to exhale and have a few laughs.
How can I stem the tide?
Don’t engage in divisive conversations. His sheep hear His voice.
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
