Post-Election Emotions

This election did not go as I had hoped… I had hoped for someone I could be more proud of… so I will pray that he becomes that man.  Don’t get me wrong, I woke up on November 9, thankful for an outsider heading to Washington. I am thankful for a president-elect who has promised […]

When I heard the news, I sat in sober silence for nearly a minute just pondering the repercussions. I wish down deep that they had ruled in favor of DOMA, yet when pondering the sovereignty of God and His glory that will come out of this (Romans 8:28), I’d have to say that I see at least two good things that should come of this…

(Think about it: Can I do any worse than what the government does managing my money?) Don’t buy into the rhetoric that we need another law or more funding. If you agree, just remember that less federal- and state-government will require more self-government of neighborhoods & communities.

How to Pray for America

Acts 24:16  Herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men. Proverbs 20:6-7  Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness, but a faithful man who can find? The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him. “Father, I pray in […]
