The roles we fill

I don’t think it is worth it to fear the results we may see tomorrow.  I would honestly be surprised to see Obama again take office and I would be doubly surprised to see the marriage amendment pass.

I am not worried.  I do feel SO strongly that the tides are on the verge of turning.  We are SO undeniably entering the end of this earthly age.  The reality of this is that our friends and family will have persuasions different from our own.  The reality of this is an escalation of persecution.  (I’m too tired to dig into the foundations of these trains of thought, tonight.)

The truth is that we are in great need of decision.  Deciding exactly where we stand and what we believe.  Deciding precisely what our lives mean and how we are to live them because this time is short.  Short.  Short.  It’s alright.  Let’s not flip.  Let’s not forget to live our days, our years.  Let us not lose focus on the coming dawn.  It sure is coming, babe.

I think what I am reminded of most greatly today is that we all fill a role.  To some extent or other, we say the things and do the things that affect eternity.  Good or bad.  Right or wrong.  We can point our fingers at those who vote this way or that.  Trust me…I would love to join the fight.  But for this day and the next, I find that it is even more important to be grateful for these ones who are actively changing the tide of our nation’s heritage and honor.  Even through them will we see history connect with our future.  Even through them will we see the links connecting us to the coming day of glory.  Won’t this make our King’s win SO much more delectable.  He knows the hearts of men.  He sees our secret society hearts.  He redeems.  He alone receives vindication.  Only he can make things right.

Bless those who curse you.  Romans 12:14

We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  Romans 5:3-5
