The other night I had a horrible but powerful dream. Two people I love dearly were divorcing that very day. One was against it and the other was moving ahead in full force. I tried reason, then begging and nothing changed the persons heart. I said they would be doomed in court and fell to the floor in such sorrow, then I woke up. I knew in my head and heart that this was just a dream, but the sadness would not lift. Then Election Day came and the sorrow increased.
Trying to sort through my feelings led me to this conclusion. My heart is broken for the state of our nation. It appears that we are making every effort to divorce ourselves from “One nation under God”. Truth is ridiculed, life is dismembered, marriage is mocked and gender is to be determined. This is what happens when we forget that God created, we did not. This will not stand up on judgement day. We will be found guilty of sin and sentenced to hell. The price has been paid and our eternity is secure, but we refuse to accept Jesus. He died for the whole world, but we turn our eyes from the cross, harden our hearts and write our own agenda. Such foolishness.
Our nation is loud right now, demands are being made and truth will come to light. My fear is we will remain in such a divided state until we lay aside our pride, selfishness, greed and immortality and accept our place under God. He is King, ruler over all and His victory stands. I do not care how unpopular following Him, His word and Reign is and I will not sit on the sidelines. I will speak the truth in love because withholding the truth is the most unloving thing we can ever do. So, hear the truth today. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17). The choice is ours to make.
