Oh yes, I voted alrighty.
Texas was going to to with McCain anyway, so did I just waste my time?
It was just ONE vote after all. Does one vote really change anything?
I guess it really didn't take that much time to vote. I didn't even stand in line.
And I got a nice little sticker.
I'm going to tell you two things that I have had thoughts on................
1. We ought to send missionaries to the swing states.........Iowa? Pennsylvania?
Good Independent Baptist Missionaries to these places, so they can straighten things out.
See people led to the Lord so they will know how to vote. Then those states will go conservative.
Romans 3:15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:
17 And the way of peace have they not known:
2. When I get political phone calls asking for money, I tell them that we are doing all we can to make conservatives out of the people we meet. For the most part, if somebody is a Christian, they don't tend to vote for abortions and stem cell research. I tell them, we don't have $150 to send you, but we do what we can here at home.
Well, am I really doing all that I can do?
Would I be willing to help support those good Independent Baptist Missionaries that went to the swing states?
Am I really spending time telling others the 'Good News'?
Or do I spend my time complaining about big government, ding-bat democrats and taxes?
What have I personally done the past 4 years that has helped this downward spiral go upward?
Psalms 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
Just think, if I had the zeal that the campaigning candidates have had.........the difference it COULD make.
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
We vote. It is ONE vote.
We tell others about Christ. They get saved. It multiplies. Everybody knows it multiplies.
You see a husband and wife get saved, then they tell their parents, they get saved, then the people down the street, then a few families at some apartment complexes come to know the Lord.......
It's easier to vote, isn't it?
Yes, I voted for McCain. It was a vote against Obama.
It didn't work.
It wasn't enough.
The 15 minutes I spent voting, was not enough.
I MUST spend my time in better places and better things.
Don't stop voting.
Just stop expecting it to change the world.
We as Christians know what really changes the world.
Acts 17:6 These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
But it is harder than voting.
I don't feel very excited about our newly elected president.
I'm not one bit happy about it.
Of course we would all like to see a conservative win the Office.......but one did not.
So what are we going to do since we don't have a president that will take care of all the clean-up?
Vote no when he should vote no.........and vote yes when he should vote yes?
I've been taught better, but somehow I have this little part of me that wants to trust in our government, to know that the people on Capitol Hill will watch out for our interests.
Psalms 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
We really don't ever need to trust in government.
It will do me good to remember it also.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
