10 Things I’ve learned in this Election Year!

1. People matter, friends matter and family matter MUCH more than being right or wrong.

2. Praying in the HOLY GHOST will produce more results for America, “the land that we love”, than sharing on social media just the perfect article/post to stick it to them.

3. We need to “agree to disagree”, walk in LOVE…the enemy divides but God unifies, reconciles and restores.

4. We can be SINCERE but still be sincerely wrong.

5. Conversation is the key to educating NOT throwing people away like they don’t matter just because they don’t have your belief system. Never ever throw people away, throw expired milk and rotten vegetables away but not people.

6. What you set your mind on…you become.  Some have joined a political cult by being consumed and your driving friends, family and yourself CRAZY! Go for a run or a walk. Find something to laugh at, eat some ice cream or watch a comedy. We get it you’re a passionate patriot but your starting to scare all of us, even your dog.

7. Let LIFE be your leading cause. ALL lives matter!  Every child deserves a birthday! Aren’t you glad someone chose life for you? Let LIFE always be your focus, your cause, what you’re most passionate about.

8. When we as Christians start using our voice, thus our lives, to talk about someone else’s past we are leaving “God’s Camp” and moving over to the “Enemy’s Camp.”  Remember he is the “accuser of the brethren.” They could have repented and your bringing up something God’s already forgiven and forgotten.

9. Love is a FACT when LOVE is an ACT.   PRAYER is the KEY but we also have to put boots “on the ground.”

10. IF you messed up, “Welcome to the club!”  Thank God we have an advocate with the Father and His name is JESUS.  We can repent and honestly, humbly, ask friends and family for forgiveness. Stay in LOVE the holiday’s are coming.

THIS ELECTION YEAR mirrors the spiritual war taking place in the heavenlies. Everything in the natural is the result of something in the supernatural.  Remember as JESUS followers we are citizens of Heaven seated with Christ first then we are American’s! Above Republicans and Democrats we are American’s!

No matter what happens going forward remember JESUS IS LORD!

Stay with God!

Take heart.

Don’t quit.

I’ll say it again: Stay with God.

Psalms 27 13-14

Our land is in need of healing. It’s time for us to get off our high horses and hit our knees in prayer. The truth is that our prayers, more than our politicians, will determine the course of our nation. ~ John Bevere

 

Are YOU as Ready as Andy Griffith Was?

A news source said it best this way, “The country fell in love with a country boy.”

Chris Rock called Andy Griffith “the original Cosby.”

Andy Griffith died this week. The world has lost a good man.  And I am left with this strange feeling…I feel as if I have lost a very close friend and yet I never met him.

Andy Griffith was a true American treasure. BUT if truth be told, Andy is more alive now than we are at this very moment in time. He was a strong believer in Jesus, and was never ashamed of his faith. I absolutely loved what his wife, Cindi, shared in the following statement, “Andy Griffith was a person of incredibly strong Christian faith and was prepared for the day he would be called home to his Lord.”

What a statement!

“HE WAS READY…”

There could be no better gift to give your family and friends: the ultimate “YES!”—that you will see them again.

Let’s be honest….have you ever known someone who suddenly died, and left you wondering and biting your nails because you just didn’t know for sure where he or she was headed?

“If only…” enters your mind. “If only we would have talked about it…”

It’s an easy way out to say to yourself, “Well, God knows…” and go on with the busyness of life. …Then something will remind you of your loss, and the question strikes again…leaving you with that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach, “What if I had only . . .”

This life is not at all like the fictional sleepy town of Mayberry, but YOU can be like the REAL Andy Griffith who knew his Lord personally and, like his wife, be ready to be called home.

It’s easy.

With all of your heart take a moment a pray this prayer. There is nothing magical about the words you use. It is the attitude of your heart that God cares about.

“Father, I know that I have sinned against You. Please forgive me. Wash me clean. I promise to trust in Jesus, Your  Only Son. I believe that He died for me. He took my sin upon Himself when He died on the cross. I believe that He was raised from the dead. I surrender my life to Jesus today. Thank You, Father, for Your gift of forgiveness and eternal life. Please help me to live for you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

The Bible promises that when you sincerely ask God for forgiveness, and trust in Jesus, you will experience a new life:

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”  ~Romans 10:9
