ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

IN GOD WE TRUST
 

It’s a time of decision!
A time to reflect!
A time to mark ballots!
A time to elect!
 
Whom shall we vote for?
Who is the best man?
If we do vote the Bible
We must take a stand
 
Against legal abortion…
It isn’t legal with God!
Against same sex marriage…
This is such a façade!
 
We must view the whole picture.
What is God’s future role?
Will we sell out our nation
To socialism control?
 
While choice is important
I can’t tell you which way…
But I do have to tell you
What the Lord has to say.
 
No one will be able
To view how you vote…
But God will be watching!
Will you ignore what He wrote?
 
His Word should be voted!
His commandments observed!
Because it matters to Him
 How this nation is served!
 
Was it built on His precepts?
Gained strength in His power?
Endured by His principles
To even this very hour?
 
One thing is for certain…
 That is each vote is a must!
So let’s be Americans…
For it’s In God We Trust.
 
Whomever the winner…
You and I must decide
To pray for that person…
Ask that God be his guide.
 
Maybe nothing will change…
Maybe everything will…
But whatever the outcome…
We must be Christians still.

1 Timothy 2:1-2
I urge … that requests, prayers, intercession,
 and thanksgiving be made for
everyone —
for kings and all those in authority.
 
Romans 13:1: “Let every soul be subject unto
 the higher powers. For there is no power
 but of God: the powers that be are ordained
 of God.”
 
1 Peter 2:13
  “Submit yourselves to every ordinance
 of man for the Lord’s sake.”
 
~~Author’s Note~~
Someone may ask why submit …Look at Christ’s example.
 He put Himself totally in His Father’s hands, knowing
 God was in control of everything. When He came
 before Pilate, He didn’t revile—He submitted Himself
 to that authority. He knew that Pilate had no power
 but what God gave him, and that everything occurs
 in accordance with God’s ultimate purpose
 
If we can learn this lesson of submitting to whomever
 God puts over us in this world, it will tremendously
 help us in our relationship with our heavenly Father.
It will, in fact, prepare us for the Kingdom of God.
 
Go out and vote for whatever you deem right…. Whomever
is elected will be fulfilling God’s purpose…whether this is good
or bad for this country.
