Return to God - Post-Election Musings

(Cross-posted already on Facebook)'s been almost a week since the sad report of our president receiving a 2nd term and given the opportunity to continue his downward spiral plan for America. As I've said before, I wasn't happy about either candidate, but at least Romney had the experience and the passion to start the process of setting American right financially and desired to pass laws that would help us on a moral level.

I can't count the people with whom I've spoken who said they voted for Obama solely because they couldn't bring themselves to vote for a non-Christian. What?!? So, instead, they voted for a man who "claims" Christianity, yet who is proud to say the Muslim prayers touch his soul and are the most beautiful thing on earth? Nevermind the reports that he's actually a foreign national and not an American citizen. But that's a whole other issue.

It saddened me last week when a man with morals, principles, and character lost to a man who supports gay marriage, abortion (even up to the point of birth), and a welfare mentality. But it saddens me more when people (and even bonafide Christians!) voted for Obama because is "said" he's a Christian, yet there isn't a single shred of evidence in his life that shows this.

Call me crazy, but I've always believed the proof is in the pudding, or the fruit will showcase the type of tree. Sorry, but Obama is NOT a Christian. I'll even go so far as to say he's a Muslim in secret with the desire to eliminate the one true God from America. He has an agenda to discredit America while doing everything he can to bring as many American citizens under government control/dependency as he can, thereby shifting us into a socialist instead of a capitalist country.

Our freedoms are being stripped away one by one, and far too many are sitting back, letting it happen.

Now, more than ever, those of us who truly ARE Christians (in our lives, our faith, and our beliefs, not just our words) need to bathe our country in prayer. We can't simply sit idly by and allow evil to take control. We've sat back long enough and allowed immoral behavior to become commonplace in our families, our children, and our neighbors. Families are falling apart, marriage is being redefined, babies are being murdered, the sacred sexual relationship--designed for husbands and wives--is being celebrated as a "try-it-before-you-buy-it" buffet smorgasbord, and immorality is favored over taking a moral stance.

It's OUR turn to take a stand for what's right and not let the "politically correct" sway us or cause us to sacrifice our values simply because our culture has decided to embrace the "well it's ok for them even if it's not ok for me" mentality. Right and wrong has been pushed aside for fifty shades of gray when it comes to morality. If we truly love our country and the one true God who blessed it from the start, we need to stop being doormats and start pushing back. If we don't stand up for something, we'll fall for anything, and that's sadly where this once-blessed nation has gone.

2 Chronicles 7:14 should be our daily guide. "...and if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land..."

We sure could use some divine healing!

The only way I have been able to reconcile what happened in my mind is to remember the message we learn in Daniel that God is in control of the nations, they are subject to His will, not the will of man. There is a divine plan. We may not see it. We may not understand it. But I must put my faith in God's plan, despite how my human mind fears the impact these results will have on our family and the world.

Well, here I go...crying again! Reading what you wrote, and what Cheryl wrote, and what Kathy Herman wrote on Facebook has given me the strength and courage to face another day with evil at its head. I truly believe that God is in control of my destiny, but I am still afraid, and I pray for myself daily in this area. I am trying to bring up a 9-year-old in the nurture of the Lord, but it is becoming more difficult every day. So I pray, and pray and pray. I pray for the church, and other Christians as well, because the salt is really missing in this nation, when we need it the most.

President Obama IS a muslim as he has said so on video more than once. Also, God is in control even as we see our once blessed country sliding to ruin. The bible says in Romans 13 that every one in authority has been placed there by God Himself and that includes our present leadership. Belief, trust in God, prayer and obedience are now more than ever necessary for every one calling him or herself a Christian.
