Archives For president

The announcement of election happened and our kids were worried about our result. They had many questions and we talked through politics on different levels for our 4 kids different ages, but We had only one thing that we needed to say that they all needed to get.
“God is not surprised, God is not worried, We should not be either and we should pray and love and walk out our faith.”

Then Trump’s day 1 happened and bigotry on so many fronts publicly reared it’s ugly head across the US in a way that is heart-wrenching and breaks God’s heart. So I sat with my kids this morning before I dropped them off at school and told them:

“People can’t blame trump for their choices. Their wrongful actions are THEIR actions. At the same time you guys need to know that no action is an action. Today when you go to school if you see anybody speaking or bullying people because they aren’t like them, are from another country, have a different religion, or a different color remember that they were made in the image of God and you need to stand up for those who are being told they are anything less than beautiful and God’s creation.. say something, step in the middle, and make sure your teachers know. As people who love Jesus we NEED to be different, speak differently, and ACT differently.”

What an awesome prayer yesterday.

We need to as the church follow Rick Warrens example and pray for our country and leaders even if we disagree.

Christ is still on the throne.

Last night america decided on a new guy for the job as President. He isn’t exactly who I was hoping for, but even with that said I pray that he does a great job.

While I am stoked we Finally have a black president, I am not too keen on his stand on marraige and abortion. I pray For God’s hand on him and that the church doesn’t sit on it’s hands if laws and such don’t match with what God wants.

I have heard many say he is the antichrist and he is going to usher in the end times. Well I have heard that before of others. I don’t have a clue what the future holds, but I won’t hang that sign around his neck.

I have seen a ton of division in the church from this election. Pray the church learns the power of unity because our country needs God.

Read what some of my friends have to say about this historic day.
