Last night history was made in our country. I was very sad and disappointed about the results of the 2008 Presidential election because the team I supported and voted for did not win. On the other hand I can praise God that our country has elected an African American to be our President. I call that victory! I am filled with an inner contentment knowing how far we have come in the right direction in the area of racial equality as a country. There should be a sense of real pride in this amazing feat for all Americans. It is time to put our personal feelings aside and go forth with prayer and support for the man that has been chosen to be our leader. We may not agree with his politics and there are certain issues that I am very concerned about, but it is just another reminder of how important prayer is on behalf of our leaders. Romans 13 speaks to our responsibilities with regard to those in authority. As we begin this new chapter in American history and in our individual lives, I commit to praying more diligently and in a more concerted manner for our country. Will you join me?
Learning to Trust God . . . For Our Country . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
