Getting ready to blog and some fighter jets just flew over our house. Few things excite me like seeing powerful jets race through the sky, especially on the 4th of July. Maybe that’s why I can watch Top Gun 72 times and still find it interesting.
Yesterday’s post might not make it too clear, but I do believe (according to 1 Timothy 2) that we are to pray for the leadership that God has placed over us. For some reason, whenever I see our leaders make decisions I do not agree with (abortion, gay marriages, some war situations, etc.), I fail to realize that the God that I say I worship is the same God that says He will never leave me or forsake me and also works everything together for the good of those that love Him. (Hebrews 13:5 and Romans 8:28). That doesn’t mean He will change every leader’s heart to align with the beat of mine, or that He’ll make my life as easy to live as possible. Things will happen that I don’t agree with, but the first thing I must do is pray for those that have the power to make even those decisions.
Thanks God, for guiding our nation to freedom and the opportunity to praise you no matter where we are. You are much bigger than I have made you out to be, and I can live free knowing that you are in control. That gives me reason to celebrate today.
