I have had at least three friends tell me thus far, "I can't believe I helped vote him into office!" And all I can do is smile! I don't go off. I don't defend my FAR RIGHT CONSERVATIVE opinions and beliefs! No point. Everyone thought that this Administration would be the saving grace our country needed. Well I have news... only God can fix these problems we are facing!! Not Obama and his administration. It's all in God's hands. Nothing Obama can do will fix our country's problems. Well there is one thing... he could get on his face and pray to God!!
My friend Sassy Engineer says it best!! I agree 100%! But I too know that God is in complete control. I really have peace with everything going on in our country right now. But only because God tells me not to worry! Therefore, I am not worried. Really, I am not.
Philippians 4:6, we are commanded, " Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
1 Peter 5:7, we are instructed to "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
Eph. 4:22-24 tells us, sinful habits of worry must be replaced with godly habits of faith and trust along with obedience.
Edited to add: I am not criticizing Obama. I am simply stating my faith in God to fix the problems our country is facing, if it is His will! I don't think I said anything BAD about Obama, did I? I realize this post might make a few angry. That is not my intention at all. I am just sharing my FAITH!
