presidential debate

While I’m a very patriotic person & I love our country, in all honesty, I’m not very political, even when the presidential debate is in my city.  While President Obama & Mr Romney were talking about healthcare, taxes, jobs and more, I was speaking in our church about Jesus’ words related to the world hating His followers – maybe some personal irony.

With that being said, here are some of thoughts about last night’s debate:

  • I’m extremely happy that both candidates are very intelligent, passionate & articulate – being led by indifference & stupidity isn’t good for anyone 🙂
  • In Proverbs it says that God has the heart of the king in His hand and He turns it in whatever way that He desires – translation:  God is sovereign
  • I have the firm conviction that prayer always trumps politics – asking the all-powerful and all-wise God to help our leaders, no matter who they are, can accomplish far more than the best human efforts and wisdom
  • vote – the end 🙂

faith doesn’t always require sight

 For whatever reason, I woke up feeling very perky at 4am today.  Obviously it was still dark when I came downstairs to get the morning coffee brewing.  And as I sat on the couch with the lights off, I looked up at the window & noticed the bright & beautiful half moon. I started thinking about the moon & how I could only see half, but knowing that  the moon merely reflects different amounts of the sun – a sliver, quarter, half, 3/4, whole.  Nevertheless, no matter how much of the moon we see, we absolutely know that it’s a whole object & not only the part that we see.  Furthermore, the longer I sat & observed, the moon was soon blocked by our house as the earth rotates toward the sunrise.

So from my early morning observations of the moon, here are a few take-aways:

  • just because we only see parts & slivers of God’s work doesn’t mean that God isn’t wholly working & doing things throughout our lives – even in the seasons when we can’t see any direct evidence
  • sometimes situations “block” our ability to see God & in these instances, we can trust that God loves us & is continuing to shine & work in our lives 🙂
