And now...

"Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better." Mark 13:23 (The Message)

And now we will continue praying, we will continue petitioning, and we will continue pleading for God's mercy on our nation. We will keep fighting for Truth, and will continue speaking it in love to all who will listen. We will pray for our president, that he will seek God's heart as he leads us, that he will position his steps according to the truth of God's word.

"They're going to drag you into court. And then it will go from bad to worse, dog-eat-dog, everyone at your throat because you carry My name. You're placed there as sentinels to truth. The Message has to be preached all across the world... the Holy Spirit will make his witness in and through you... There's no telling who will hate you because of Me. Stay with it - that's what is required. Stay with it to the end. You won't be sorry; you'll be saved." Mark 13:9-13

Monday night, "Mom, what's a sentinel?"

"It's a guard. It's someone who guards something."

"So, we're supposed to guard the truth?"

"Yes, that's right. We are."

You know I realize everything happens for a reason, Allyson and I are pretty depressed by last nights results. The stupid human selfish part of me wants an easier life for my children and is angry that it may not come now. The Christian part of me realizes that all things are in God's hands and faith in that fact will get us through whatever tough times may be coming. Let's hope and pray things turn out better than I fear they may.
