Heavenly Father, as I blog this day, I pray you will give my mind the thoughts and fingers the ability to type, the words You have to say.
This is a short prayer I utter to myself each time I sit down to type, write, or film a video for all of you Beauties and Cuties. My reason for this small yet heartfelt utterance is because I NEVER want to lead anyone astray due to "my" thoughts, words, or opinions. The Bible declares for us not to rely on our own understanding, this could be because God knew people would have opinions and thoughts that are not always correct concerning EVERYTHING around them.
This statement seems to be all the more true during this election time. I have listened, read and watched so many people expressing extremely strong opinions about the presidential candidates, belief systems, laws, government, foreign exchange, stock and trade, America, and the election as a whole. Through all these opinions and debates I have come to encourage all who wish to be encouraged.
Let us not allow this election to break up our communities, relationships, goals or even our self worth as a people or as individuals. Let us take this time to reflect on what is truly important. I beseech you, before you cast your vote, take time and deeply reflect on where you were and what you were doing and planning before this election. Allow your mind to go even as far back as before you knew who was running for Office. What goals had you set for your relationships, businesses, communities, families, spirituality? Focus in on where you wanted to be at the end of 2016 and see if all the anger, opinions, fighting, hatred, name calling, and all the other things going on around you or even within you, is really worth it. Go back and look over your 2016 goals that you swore you were going to meet and see if you have all of them checked off. If your list is incomplete then I strongly suggest, instead of allowing yourself to be brain washed with all the mess of the world, you get before the Lord, give everything into His hands, place a well thought out vote and get BUSY developing and pouring into you!!! You can have one million opinions about everything around you, but when the smoke clears where is everything you set out to accomplish? My prayer for us, this day, is when it is all said and done our families and this society has changed for the better because we were here and placed our hands to accomplish every work that God set out just for us. Even before He created the foundation of the world, He knew YOU and what He wanted YOU to spark, change, or finish. If you are unsure about your place in life, ask the Master to take over your heart, mind, body and soul, then sit back and allow His spirit to take over.
As always, I love you, God loves you, so love yourself.
