It’s Over, Sort Of

Here it is the day after one of the worst election campaigns that I have witnessed since I became old enough to actually pay attention to the television. Thankfully it is finally over and we have put our country in the hands of the President for a second term. There has been a lot of faith placed in him that he will continue to bring this country forward out of the quagmire we’ve been in for far to long.

He has a big job to do and I wouldn’t want to change places with him for anything in this world. It’s an extremely thankless position with nice perks and a place to live.  He is essentially the fall guy for both parties. As a Christian I have to place him and this country in the hands of God with prayer to back him up. That prayer is for him to do what needs to be done here at home and abroad.

I would encourage each Christian and other God-fearing faiths to pray. The biggest thing for me right now is Israel. I spent this past weekend at a conference that explained that Israel does not belong to the people but to God and he does not want his land divided.  Any country that goes against Israel and helps to divide the land will be judged by God. From my understanding both President Obama and Gov. Romney both want Israel divided in two for the cause of peace.

The other thing which was said about Israel is they will be in war with Iran in the first part of this next year. They were waiting to see the outcome of this election before deciding on a date. That’s another pressure put on the USA. The President said during the debates he had Israel’s back, which if this country wants to stay on the good side of God is a good thing. The problem is a lot of suffering is going to take place.

I know I don’t usually blog about politics or religion, but I felt I had to do this. Please pray for our country.

    Shirley – you’re right about President Obama and our country needing prayer but I also sense a lot of unrest, shifts and changes going on throughout the entire world. Pray for President Obama and Congress but also our country and fellow Americans and people around the world. We can do it together.

  • You are also correct about unrest in the world and I will continue to pray. I know if we can get enough praying we might be able to divert a catastrophe. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments. Blessings

    Well said, Shirley. And as I told many of my friends, God is not sitting in heaven, ringing his hands because of who sits in the presidential seat. As always, all things will come in His time. God knows the outcome. It’s just a matter of time for all things to come to fruition, and per His request, I will continue to pray for our leaders, whatever their party affiliation.

    • Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment. You are absolutely right. I for one tend to forget sometimes that God knows the outcome to all this. Thanks for the reminder. Blessings to you and yours.
