On today's show, Glenn Beck talked about the enemy within. This sums up my frustration over the past few years. Our country is being ripped apart by the citizens and leaders who have been elected to protect our freedom.
I've talked several times here about how frustrating it is that so many people just make no sense anymore. I know that it is just another Bible Scripture coming true, but it is frustrating none the less.
Isaiah 5:20 says, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."
Almost every day this Scripture is glaringly proven to be the days we are in. Unfortunately, woe to these people!
Tonight as I was watching Greta Van Sustern, she interviewed one of the Wisconsin Democrat Senators who have tucked tail and run from their duty to serve the citizens of Wisconsin. She talked about being a woman of faith, yet every word that came from her mouth spoke the opposite of what it means to be a believer.
There are many times in life where we must make tough choices. As a believer, sometimes we struggle immensely with doing what is right. But to blatantly go against what is right, and call it right, is a completely different story altogether!
Our leaders are elected to do a job. They are elected to vote as their constituents want them to vote, not what they personally feel in a situation, nor for a small group of people. Yes, the unions have a voice and should be heard. However, it should ONLY be the voice of the people of WISCONSIN! There are people being bussed in from other states to protest. This is ridiculous! They have no say in Wisconsin's business!
Then you have the Senators, who are elected to do a job, running away from their duty rather than standing up and making the tough decisions. They are wasting taxpayers money! They are running away from a job they are being paid to do!
Lord God, I pray for this country. I pray for our leaders. We are at a point in our history were a lot of tough choices are going to have to be made. It's never easy to make these tough choices, but that's what is necessary when you are a rational, mature adult. I pray that these people will wake up! I honestly do not believe it is going to happen, but I pray that it does.
I pray for Governor Walker. Please keep him safe, as well as all of our leaders. The atmosphere in our country is very volatile right now. Please protect us from violence from those who do not agree with us. This includes ALL PEOPLE- leaders and constituents, left and right! We have to make tough choices, but violence is not going to solve things, it will only intensify things.
Lord God, I pray for Congresswoman Giffords. I continue to pray for her complete recovery. Please be with her husband, Mark Kelly, and he makes preparations for his final space flight. Keep them both safe in Your arms of love.
I pray all of these things in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ- Amen.
