People are on the edge like never before about the United States Presidential Elections.
The Media is playing both sides like a puppeteer, manipulating every scene with it’s own agenda. Every story is exaggerated and colorful to fit their goal.
The people are forced to watch the defamation of a man and woman. We watch as the media chews them up and spits them out with every news release.
Reflecting on all of this, I can’t even imagine what our Nominees’ families must be going through as they endure the harsh exposure of their lives. It’s heart-breaking and shameful to our country.
Many people of this country and the world who is watching, are being fooled and manipulated and don’t know it. The media has become a god to our nation, a sort of fantasy matrix. It often is believed above credible sources, as actual reality. We see how people believe someone is a wolf because they saw it on TV.
People fail to remember that real evil wolves come in sheep’s clothing.
The problem is that we have gotten used to the Sheep’s clothing, the Cloak of Political Correctness.
We are so blinded by it that when someone comes at us in their authenticity, being who they really are and withholding nothing about how they really see and feel about our government, we call them evil, wrong, and incorrect in their speech. We forget that we have different perspectives and experiences that validate our opinion or feelings.
The same people who argue for “freedom of speech” want to silence those who are authentic and unveiled.
Those who scream for tolerance suddenly can’t tolerate those of us who were silent and now are rising up with something to say.
The very people (the media) who call for unity are causing division. They themselves are being manipulated and deceived as the media gods accomplish their agenda.
I have heard the arguments that a man who lacks good character and personality should not be president. A woman who lies and cheats should not be president. At the same time, we hear people say that the church needs to keep their nose out of the political scene, yet the same people insist on using Godly principles to judge our candidates. Do I hear a double standard?
If I am really going to separate my faith from this whole situation, then I can’t judge our candidates on their past moral behavior. I must treat them like I would treat any other civil servant and ask the question, “Can you do the JOB and bring real, much-needed change?”
But if I am going to judge according to my faith then I must understand and accept that God works in mysterious ways, and that the people’s choice is not always the best choice. That God really has the last word and I am a humble servant who has a responsibility to respond to my civil duty and just VOTE. I must then, according to my faith, pray for the Lord’s will to be made manifest. I must remember that if I vote for a person who will up hold laws that go against what I know is right before God I will be held accountable for my choice.
My Heart is broken over this more than anything. The people have put themselves on the judgement seat and are blinded by the most important aspect which is “who can do the job of the president?”
They can’t see the Forest for the Trees!
meaning that if you look at things one at a time, you might not realize that a branch of separate "trees" go together to make a "forest". We have focused on the many details thrown at us by the media that we have failed to see the big picture and missed the point.
Everyone has been begging for a real change in America, those who don’t think anything is wrong, are in their own little world living a fantasy. But for those of us who are in the trenches, we see much room for change and for the better. Could it be possible that what we have been praying for is right under our noses but we don’t like the smell?
Beloved, changes don’t always feel good or look good. But when we yield to the process, step back, forget the smell, look up and change our perspective, we will then see the forest that is in front of us.
I would like to present a series of questions to help you and I decide who to vote for this Election Season. I am in no way a Politician nor do I aspire to be. I am only acting in obedience to the urgency that is in my heart to help some people sort their thoughts and fall out of the grip of the real wolf in this story, THE MEDIA.
My desire is that anyone reading this simple blog will reflect on your own heart. Take some time to seek out the Truth, look up and around you, see the bigger picture and I promise it will set you free.
1. When it comes to elections how do you feel? Are you afraid to vote or are you indifferent (unconcerned)?
2. Do you love our Nation, your home?
3. How do you think our Nation is doing?
4. Would you say that we are headed in the right direction or wrong direction?
5. Do you believe that you can make a difference, and do you even want to?
6. Do you stand up for your values and want them protected?
7. Which nominee values the same things you do?
8. If you believe we need change, Which nominee do you believe can really make things interesting and promote the most change in the coming year?
Doing my Part,
Don't allow yourself to be manipulated by the details, the apparent sheep. Passivity never did anything great.
Be the Light, it's your duty and your Right.
