Time Flies

As I sit here watching my two kids play together, I am reminded of a short time ago when I really thought this day would NEVER come! I can not believe that for the first time in 3 years I do not have a baby on a bottle, or the fact that I can actually sit here and write while the both of them are off playing in the yard. Time truly flies when you are having fun. My cup truly runs over. I am filled with so much joy in knowing that my savior is so real and so present in my life.

I have also been doing a lot of thinking and praying about our newest president. I have been so overwhelmed with people telling me that I just need to pray for him and honor him...I am getting so tired of hearing it. I know that God is in complete control and I know that He can and has many times in the past worked amazing things through rulers that are not actively pursuing Him. However, I feel that as a christian, my role is to not just simply sit back and pray for his well-being. Yes, he is my president, but He is not pursuing Christ and therefore, my prayers are a bit more specific. I am praying that God would reveal Himself to him and that he would repent! That he would be surrounded by Christians who are seeking after God's face. That he would see that ultimately, God is in control and that he is merely carrying out His plan. That he would fall down on his face when he thinks that he is playing a huge part in the deaths of thousands of innocent babies! I can not put my full trust in a president who is not moved to action at the thought of allowing all of these babies disappear. I wonder if he would feel any different if they had names and wore clothes? Somewhere in our country we have come to a point where abortion is just "something that happens" and it is not an abomination!!! There are two people in my world that have just gone through with abortions and I just want to vomit it makes me so sick! I could just scream and throw a temper-tantrum!

In all honesty, I am scared! If we do not have someone who can stand up in the face of opposition to God's word and do what is right. Then we are going to find ourselves in a very bad place. A place where God is going to give us over to our evil desires, and that scares me! My prayer for our president is that He would tremble at the thought of God's judgment and run towards the cross! Praise God that He can work through anyone and any situation, but also praise God for discernment. Now more than ever do we need to be clinging to God's word and His truth!
