My 2 Cents

Seems like so many people (not that that is a lot) that I have been around the past few weeks are so worried and burdened by the outcome of the election--what is going to happen to our country.... I'll admit that who I voted for was not elected and I was sad, but the ultimate truth is we are not in control. God is. He knew Obama would be President before Obama was born. God has a plan, a perfect plan. Maybe Christians in America need to be sanctified. We need to remember who we are, what we believe, and what we are here for. It is obviously way to easy to be a "Christian" here. Maybe, through this, God is calling us to step up, walk our talk, be real. (that's just my 2 cents)

I encourage you to watch the following video from The Girl Talk Blog. In this video, John Piper gives us a Biblical Perspective of how we should be feeling. We (Believers) are not part of this world. As he says, this world will fade away. We have one foot in heaven and one foot on this earth. Our job, while we are here, is to spread the gospel for His glory. Take a minute and check this out:

Your right Danette. What makes me so sad about what's going on now is the direction our country has gone. I blogged about it yesterday, so I won't get on my soapbox here, but suffice it to say it is going to be harder to stand for what we believe.

Hope you're having a great day. How's Jed?

Hugs!
