The First Blogger and Almighty God

[This post was written earlier this week; however, it really has been the pool of my reflection throughout this week. I hope it resonates with you as well.]

I've been wrapped up in Election matters this week. I even volunteered to assist a local Republican Headquarters. For me, this race was totally about resumé and the experience needed to lead a country in tumultuous times. I sincerely don't believe that we can afford on-the-job training right now. And, I am concerned that there will be a price to pay.

However, I thank my dear friend Beverly of Teatime and Roses. We had a deep heart to heart via telephone. We have both agreed to pray for God's wisdom over this historical election and our new President-Elect Obama. The significance of seeing an African-American take a leading role in our country is not lost on me. I celebrate a country that has made equality possible through the blood and sacrifices of multitudes of men and women.

God is still on the throne and whether we see it or not, He is in control and working things together for good. He is bigger than the kings of this world and he is larger than our fears. We are vowing to pray during these next 4 years like we have never prayed before.

This is a wake up call for conservatives and those to whom we have entrusted with power. The Republican Party needs to clean house and get back to the core values that drive our platform. And, the Body of Christ must resolve to be a brighter beacon in an ever darkening world.

Your Spare Moments

"Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life."
