Election Day November 2nd 2010

Here in America we are voting for a new Senate and Congress today. The way of this country has been going in a very wrong direction especially in the past two years. It seems futile perhaps to think that 1 vote could make a difference, but what if that 1 vote weren’t cast and did make all the difference in the world? What if it were your vote?
First of all, I am not that much into politics but in the last 2 years it has perked my interest as I am now seeing our constitutional rights being taken away as if the constitution had no bearing on this country at all! Can we forget that blood was shed to give this country certain inalienable rights? Can we forget that all people were created equal in the eyes of God? But I’m afraid those rights are being taken away and given to those who are wealthy, since there is no longer a middle class to support the upper class. Does this concern me? Yes, I can’t compete with the elite and super wealthy and therefore I am expendable in their eyes. The backbone of America is crumbling due to job losses and that is still rising! Insurance and health care will be forced on everyone to pay for Obamacare beginning next year and then if you can’t afford it, you will be fined! When in the history of America were we ever forced to buy insurance we couldn’t afford? I’m sorry but this doesn’t make much sense to me at all.
Is voting a right or a privilege? As a Christian, it is still a privilege because not many countries have this right. I choose to vote to keep this a privilege because I don’t want to lose that all because I thought that voting wasn’t important.
Voting for the Christian is also a duty of stewardship. We must uphold the godly morals and fight to keep them. We may not have the most perfect politicians to vote for, but instead of getting caught up in all these rabbit trails that they lead us down, we have to see what it is these people believe in, where do they stand on moral issues such as abortion, stem cell research, same sex marriages? These are real issues and I know what God thinks about them and unless we start paying attention to these issues, we will continue to see this country slip into socialism by telling Christians they have no right to serve God in schools, courtrooms, and eventually in their own homes!
All I know is, I understand what God loves and what He hates and therefore that is good enough for me and these are the basics that I am looking at when I cast my vote. I can’t sit back and watch a politician who remains strattling both sides of the fence all for the name of power and fame at the cost of selling this country down stream. I am proud to still have this privilege to have a say in the future of this country. We owe it to our children and their children to take a stand and do what God has entrusted us to do.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    I agree, we always vote in elections here in the UK, and watch with interest and concern what is happening in your part of the world, an in our own too, in these specially uncertain times, which remind me of this song by Ruth Caye Jones

    In times like these you need a Saviour;
    In times like these you need an anchor;
    Be very sure, be very sure
    Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
    This Rock is Jesus, yes, He’s the One;
    This Rock is Jesus, the only One;
    Be very sure, be very sure
    Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

    In times like these you need the Bible;
    In times like these O be not idle;
    Be very sure, be very sure
    Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
    This Rock is Jesus, yes, He’s the One;
    This Rock is Jesus, the only One;
    Be very sure, be very sure
    Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

    In times like these I have a Saviour;
    In times like these I have an anchor;
    I’m very sure, I’m very sure
    My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
    This Rock is Jesus, yes, He’s the One;
    This Rock is Jesus, the only One;
    I’m very sure, I’m very sure
    My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

  • Thank you so very much my dear friend, it’s responses liek this that helps me know that I am not alone in all this! That’s a great song!!! So very true. I hang onto my anchor all the time! God bless you!
