Welcome Friends

Welcome back. I confess I'm recovering from a case of the "blues".  I was pretty sure America would elect a new president but that did not happen. I have to keep reminding myself that although things in this world can be terrible that in the end God will make everything right. In fact, the Bible does say that things will get worse and worse before the end comes. It is just so frustrating to think that we re-elected a man who supports abortion any time for any reason, even partial birth abortion and even voted against a law that would require a "botched" abortion where the baby was born alive to go ahead and kill it because that was the intent of the abortion. And 'gay' marriage. Our economy is going off the cliff and now I don't have any hopes that it will turn around. There are just so many things I disagree with him on, but I'll get off my "soap box" now and get on with starting the linking.

Thank you to everyone who is so faithful to share with us. If you have not shared before and would like to, you will find instructions by clicking Linking Info under the header picture.

  1. I agree with you Charlotte. This is why I shared my post on Election Reflections. Thankfully, God's kingdom can NEVER be stopped and He is so much more powerful than the prince of the air. We can rejoice in that!

  2. Many are grieving, mourning, weeping for our country. My post is to encourage myself and others. We trust Him, and believe He in control.

    Love to you and yours,
    Gail

  4. Oh, I understand your feelings. I, too was disappointed. Yet, I know that God is at work. The books, Ezra and Nehemiah, have been so helpful-- such an inspiration to me. Both men continued to study and pray through a time of exile. I think our role is to continue in the Word and be salt and light. Go

  5. I so identify with your post - and then lately God has been reminding me by Scriptures that I still need to pray for and give respect to our leaders. I am guilty of not doing that enough...

  6. I agree, Charlotte. I have decided that I need to be praying for the current administration, but I am still trying to pull myself up by my bootstraps this week.

  7. Oh dear Charlotte, I feel for you. But yes, we do have to accept the fact that "in the last days, perilous times shall come"; and "evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." We are in the last days, but our hope, our joy, is the coming of our Lord. Our redemption draweth nigh!

  9. Many of us were disappointed, and the outcome was due to the many who want a free bowl of pottage and have sold their birthright. Already businesses are closing and laying off workers because they know they cannot survive the new laws and rules impossed upon them. We must pray that our leaders receive a NEW HEART and receive Jesus.

  10. I'm with Denise - more "birth pangs" before the return of Jesus Christ! I was just reading a kid's Bible book to my grandkids and in it, two Jews under the awful government at the time of Jesus' birth commented that they were so looking forward to the coming of the Messiah, along with the one who would "prepare His way" (John the Baptist). I commented to my grandchildren that just like then, we are now looking forward to the coming of our awesome Messiah - and that there were definitely a lot of signs that give US hope. And until then, I will seek to obey God and pray for our nation, indeed, our world - for His wisdom and salvation, with thanksgiving - KNOWING that He is now and always has been and ever will be in true control. Have a blessed day full of HIS sweet encouragement! :)

  12. Thank you once again, dear Charlotte. I am glad you are finding comfort with this blues. We will all just continue to pray for our country and our leaders.♥

  13. Praise God that He is still on the throne! The outcome of this election must have been His will for the U.S. or He would not have allowed it -- sadly, I fear it is for our judgment. Throughout the Old Testament, Israel got the rulers they deserved; not necessarily those who had the best interests of the nation at heart. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and for hosting, & God bless.

  14. Charlotte, your post is very transparent and reflects what so many are feeling. On Monday night, as I read through scripture, the Lord brought me to Job 42: 2

    "I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted."

    We take council from God's Word.

  15. Hello Charlotte, it's the first time that I have visit your site and after my first reading of your article "Welcome Friends" I must say that I thinking the same way as your about the new elected president. You see I'm also christian and all this stuff about abortion and gay marriage is not what need to change, so we can leave like it is and our economy must change so he can concentrate on that topic...!
    I will bookmark your site and come back soon. Thanks to share your thoughts...!

  16. Oh, Charlotte, we keep saying we should not be surprised as things continue to get worse, but we still are. Nuts. One step after another. It's enough. Thanks for providing a place for all of us to share and have our say.
