America, this election is too important to sit this one out.

Right now, two candidates are running for the top job of this country—two men who want to be president of America.
They are running two entirely different platforms.
One wants to protect America, Her citizens, their American dreams, and their jobs. This man believes in American freedoms and strongly supports our troops who fight to keep all our freedoms in place.
This same man is running on the platform of protecting life. To him, life, too, is precious. He is pro-life. Perhaps the strongest pro-life candidate to run for the Office of the President. This man supports the oil and fracking industry that has allowed America to become non-dependent on foreign oil. In the past, America was susceptible to foreign countries supply of oil. Dependency on foreign oil has, in the past, lead to excessively high gas prices and shortages. America, we don’t want to be under the thumb of any foreign power for any reason.
This man also believes in small government interference in the lives of everyday American lives. He also believes and protects the religious freedoms of American citizens.
The other man will more than likely ship our jobs overseas as he has done in the past. This man does not believe in the American dream. He proposes a massive hike in taxes for the American middle class.
This man will sit back and allow those in his party and his administration to change America vastly. That change will turn us from a democracy into a socialist county.
Those in his party has promised free vacations, free college, free healthcare for all, Medicare for all, free daycare, etc.
Well, here is something you should know. NOTHING is free. Someone has to pay for it, and I believe that will be the middle class.
This man has also previously threatened to go against our rights as Americans and confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.
His administration is also a threat to our freedom of speech.
This same man is under suspicion of corruption for past business deals with foreign countries. His son is under FBI investigation for money laundering, which would also somehow touch this man’s past business dealings.
This second man has also said that he would move America from oil and fracking.
That will lead to millions of good-paying jobs being taken from American families in several states.
This second candidate runs as a Democrat, but he has given access to his administration and will choose individuals with radical beliefs access to both himself and his administration.
His Vice President choice has been touted as the most liberal person in our Senate. That is some title to hold!
As I mentioned, these are vast differences between the two choices, but the one that troubles me as a Christian is the choice in life or death of an innocent baby.
As a Christian, this is a game-changer against candidate number two. Our God’s word tells us that to Him, every life is precious. He also tells us that every single one of us is planned for by Him.
How can we, as humans, destroy an innocent life that was planned for by Almighty God Himself?
How can we override God’s decision for a baby to live when He Himself has deemed that life necessary and planned for?
In doing so, aren’t we trying to “play God” by ending this particular life?
And we cannot forget about the price for our sins. Please make no mistake about it. There is always a price for the sins we commit as a person, as a family, community, and nation.
America, I believe we are praying a price that we cannot afford for all the innocent lives that have been murdered via abortions in America.
We must repent! We have sinned against God! Our sins have a price that is too much for us to repay.
This is where our Savior’s blood comes in, for Holy is the Lamb of God who was slain for each one of us.
Thank you, God, for Your mercy and grace.
America, we must repent, ask for God’s forgiveness for our sins as a nation, and ask Him to heal our land.
We are at a critical point in America. Prayer, seeking God, asking for His forgiveness is something that needs to be done now.
Pray about who you should vote for in the next coming days. This presidential election is a choice for the soul of America.

Samson is going to vote.

We are all responsible for getting America back on track.

Where did America skew off the tracks of morality, civility, and tolerance? When did we allow money to be the end-all and say all? Many say that money is the root of all evil. Therefore they attest money as the blame on what has happened to America. But the truth is that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil, not money itself!
We have looked the other way as some who are super-wealthy have bulldozed the little guy. While this was taking place, we have managed to soothe ourselves with prescription drugs and illicit drugs. We have eased our tiresome burdens of providing for ourselves and our families by numbing ourselves with too much alcohol, drugs, prescriptions, or other addictions.
The little guy, the average American citizen, has been bulldozed as our factories closed, and our jobs were shipped overseas so that men, women, and children in a foreign nation could earn very little money doing these same jobs.
So you see, it is not only the American citizens that have been bulldozed. Citizens in many nations have become the pawns of greedy business people and their corporate boards.
The American citizen has been played by slick politicians who lie, deceive, and rob us.
While many Americans have become less prosperous, these deceivers in our government get more abundantly wealthy and more prosperous. They dare to enrich their family members, too, with their schemes and tricks.
They bask in their riches while we are forced to work 2, 3, or 4 jobs to survive.
This survival does not include healthcare, dental care, or family vacations. It only includes working ourselves almost to death to have a decent place to live, reliable transportation, food on our tables, and clothes on our backs.
Why did we stop caring? Why did we become so gullible to their deception and tricks? Why did we look the other way as they pushed our abundant nation into ruins?
We listened to the media who tell us what to think and what to do. We became like robots doing the very thing that they wanted us to do.
We became so wrapped up in trying to survive that we told ourselves it wasn’t necessary to vote. We said to ourselves that it was okay to let someone else step in and decide for us with their votes
Now I am no way mocking anyone or blaming anyone. I, too, became too wrapped up in making a living that I didn’t pay attention to what was happening. We trusted those who took advantage of us.
But I have decided that I can no longer sit by and watch as people squander God’s gift of America.
The policies of the politically correct have utterly destroyed the once beautiful state of California.
I am tired of being told that our rights don’t matter and that the Constitution is no longer valid because it is too old, outdated, and needs to be rewritten, revamped, or done away with.
Our rights do matter! We elect the individuals in our government. The only reason they are in a position of power is that we put them there. As we placed them there, we can remove them.
I am very tired of political promises from candidates that never fulfill their campaign promises. Even now, for example, some candidates have packaged insurance for all into a slick marketing package.
What is a government-run medical system where all insurance companies are eliminated? That means no more private insurance. It also means more taxes for the middle class and those at or below the poverty line. How else will this massage undertaking get paid for? These false advertising campaigns are misleading the American people. It is time to discover the real truth underneath their promises instead of just listening to their “promises.”
We need to decide to get involved. American’s future is at stake. Our futures are too crucial to continue to do the same, which has been very little.
I am not telling you who to vote for. That is between God and you, but you cannot vote on feelings. Ask your self what is right and wrong. Seek God in prayer to ask for direction, wisdom, and discernment.
We all have to remember that God gave us a voice with our vote, and we must use it. We all will be held responsible by God Himself for our actions, and that includes our voting.
We cannot sit on the sidelines and complain and do nothing with our vote.
Now, you must ask yourself which candidate believes and upholds life. Who of all the candidates believes that life begins at conception? We are all children of God. There are no grey areas in God’s word, and one of His commandments instructs us not to kill.
Each life is precious, planned for, and anticipated. Abortion is the murder of innocent life. This issue may make you uncomfortable to hear or perhaps even angry, but it is the truth. God sees abortion as murder. Now there are a lot of opposing messages out there, but remember, I am the only a messenger. I can only end this paragraph by saying, “thank God” for His never-ending forgiveness!
God’s word is God’s word. It is so powerful that not even He can change or alter it. Both of these items are, of course, two whole separate blogs by themselves. Once you are face to face with God, you will have the ability to verify if this is true or not, but for now, we must stay focused on the current issue.
Ask yourself which candidate has created jobs, made it possible for more businesses to add more jobs, and brought jobs back to America from other countries, etc.
Ask yourself which candidate wants all citizens of America to prosper, to achieve the American dream.
Ask yourself which candidate plans to uphold ALL our Constitutional rights.
Ask yourself which candidate wants a smaller government so that we are not trampled on by a significant and overbearing government.
Ask yourself which candidate wants the very best for America and all Her citizens.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to protect America and Her citizens at all costs.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to make sure America has top-notch airports, schools, roads, and bridges.
Ask yourself which candidate wants America to stay on Her successful road of capitalism.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to decrease homelessness by encouraging drug treatment, by not allowing it to become so easy to become homeless in the first place.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to end the corruption in our government by exposing and rooting it out.
I could go on and on, but these are just a few of the most critical issues America is facing.
Let your decision be based on facts and do not let your feelings or emotions lead you.
Ask yourself which candidate will point America in the right direction and keep our foundation of God in place.
We are a great country because of our tolerance, our acceptance, our love, our generosity, our graciousness, and mostly because we love God.
America was founded on God, and therefore, we must stay founded on Him. He will guide us through these difficult times. He is the light of our righteousness.
Seek Him before election day so that He can guild you.
Please remember, if you pick a candidate that does not win, do not become bitter, hateful, and spiteful about it. See it as God’s will and move on. Do not let your heart grow infested with hate and anger. Seek God in this, too, to ask Him to help you to move on and not become bitter and angry.
We must not diminish who and what God is. He is there for every situation we face in life.

We can no longer be silent as our magnificent nation is run into ruin!

god-bless-americaWP6.1.19

If you care about our nation, it is time to get involved in how this nation is being run.
If you are an American citizen, you are blessed! This nation is the best in the world. I am not bragging or being overly cocky as I am only stating the truth.
If you are blessed enough to travel around the world, you know this to be true. So many nations live in poverty with corrupt governments or leaders that do not care about its citizens.
America is a great nation! I am thankful that God bestowed me the gift of being an American citizen. I thank Him often for this gift.
This land was founded on God, blessed by God, and continues to be a beacon of God’s love and hope to all other nations.
We are blessed to live in a nation where we can elect the officials who run it.
Lately, we all have done a poor job of keeping tabs on these individuals.
I get it. I know you are super busy. You have a job or jobs, a family, and a ton of other responsibilities to tend to.
I am not criticizing any of you. I know how overwhelming life can become at times with all of our responsibilities.
I work two jobs, have a family, etc., but I made a decision that I had to get more involved in the way this nation was headed.
It appears that elected officials who have been in office for long periods have placed their pocketbooks, families, hunger for power, and their agenda in front of the good of America and Her citizens.
For many years now, they have gone unchecked and allegedly managed to become corrupt.
It seems that their main concern is not for the citizens for this mighty nation but for allowing, promoting, and protecting people who gain access to this nation through illegal methods.
Now, the people running to replace our current President have also shown loyalty to those who come here illegally. They have stated that they will take the hard-earned money of American taxpayers to foot the bill for social services to assist those who gained access to our country by breaking our laws.
They have also stated that they will raise the taxes of American citizens to take care of all these illegals immigrants.
One of these individuals stated that he would raise the taxes of people who make a mere $29,000 a year to help pay for all the social services that these illegal individuals will need.
What about our citizens? Who is taking care and looking out for our American citizens who are elderly, sick, have mental issues, disabled, a veteran, or those who are living in extreme poverty?
There is no option but to get involved. We can’t sit around anymore and complain and yet do nothing to help.
You may not have the time to take on every issue, but there are a few that are too important to be ignored anymore.
Pick 2 or 3 issues that are important to you, your family, and your community.
If I had to pick only 3, I would say that my top 3 are abortion, the budget deficit, and the revitalization of America, which includes, American jobs, American wages, etc.)
Apologies, but I would have to add one more to my plate. That being the reinstating of God back into our nation, our schools, our lives, and our families.
I truly believe God will ask each one of us on the day of judgment what we did to change things for the better.
We have a responsibility to each other to hold our leaders accountable for any corruption and lies that they have committed. If they have broken the law, they too must be held accountable.
If they refuse to do what is best for America, then it is time to vote them out of office.
We can no longer allow them to stay in office with the agenda of themselves first and foremost, illegals immigrants second, and American citizens in last place.
When they entered their position in government, they took an oath to uphold our Constitution and to protect the citizens of this nation above everything else.
They placed their hand on the bible and swore to uphold the Constitution and to protect us. I guess they think that this small action of their hand on the bible isn’t very significant.
Well, I hate to be the one to burst their bubble, but when they placed their hand on God’s word and swore with their very own words, they swore and promised to complete the responsibilities placed on them. They openly and willingly made a promise to us, but most of all, to God Himself.
Now, God honors His word and His promises, and He expects the same from us. If we placed our hand on His word and swore or affirmed that our actions and our words will conform to what is expected of us, we are entering into a covenant/contract/promise with God.
Affirming that we will speak the truth or that we promise to uphold certain things or people above all other things is a serious business.
Those who placed their hand on the bible and swore, to tell the truth, or to uphold certain things will have to answer to God Himself when they fall off that path.
Next time you have to place your hand on the bible and swore or affirmed, to tell the truth, please pick your words very carefully. Lying or purposely misleading people after you place your hand on the bible and affirm to be truthful is something not be messed with.
I, for one, do not want to know what the consequences are for misleading or lying after affirming I would be truthful and not misleading.
Each one of us will answer to God for every word we spoke, for actions that we purposely used or sought to bring hurt, despair, or agony to others.
Again, this also reflects how powerful our words are.
Again, this nation was a gift to us from God. We are responsible for how it is run. We must speak up when we see abuse. It is time to get America back on the right track.
Regardless of how much we have to go on in our lives, we have to get involved. When you are asked by God why you did nothing to change how specific individuals where corrupting His gift, what will you tell Him?
What excuse will you give God? There is no excuse good enough. And to stand in front of God and give excuses, which are mere lies we tell ourselves to ease our guilt, shame, or to make us feel better, will in no way suffice for our inaction.

Seek God’s direction and then go out and vote.

God, I thank You that I am free to vote in the upcoming election. I am grateful that my voice is being heard with my vote.
I have the choice of voting in the direction that You counts towards the decisions on how this country is run.
God, I am so thankful that I have a chance to let my voice be heard via my vote in the upcoming election.
I am thankful that I live in a country where I have the blessing of placing a vote.
I am so grateful for those who so bravely marched & protested in peace to give women the ability to vote.
When we choose to sit at home and not vote, we tarnish their legacy.
Too many essential things hang in the balance with this vote. Voting will give you a voice to address changes. Changes that God wants.
Regardless of what your thoughts are about America, this is nation destined to be blessed.
Founded on the principals of God, this nation is a bright beacon of hope that offers people the chance for a better life.

If it isn’t a beacon of hope, why do so many people fight so hard to get here? They break the law, and they risk their lives and the lives of their family, they go into debt to pay another person to get them here.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this vote is unimportant. This vote is life altering!
This vote holds the direction of this wonderful nation.
Our vote will decide if this nation continues to move towards God or moves towards the things NOT of God.
If you don’t like the direction this nation is moving in, then pray about it. God’s word tells us to pray for our country and our leaders.
But remember God’s will always prevails.
This nation, it’s people of faith, our president, his cabinet, our courts, and our laws are all under spiritual attack.
But do not fear because God is in full control. Our job is to pray for His will to be fulfilled.
As with all things, pray for divine direction about your vote.
God, I thank You for YR divine direction in the choices I made with my vote.
Father, make way for all to seek Your direction and then get out and vote.pray-floral-collage-9.17.17WP
