On Our Hearts

If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

We have been watching the poles. We have been listening to the speeches and debates. We are continuing to investigate the issues.
We are praying that the citizens of our great Nation take this Election Year very seriously. We pray that they remain focused on the "real" issues and not on the biased voices of the media.
It is clear to us that "truth" is not prevailing just now (in the media). People are desperate for change ... but not all "change" is good. There are no easy answers for the troubles our nation is facing; there are no quick fixes or pat answers. We collectively need to turn our eyes and hearts to God, as our founding fathers did ... it is only with His guidance and His wisdom that we can prosper and succeed.
All of the elections matter ... from the smallest town police departments and mayors, to the state governors and state congressional members, to the halls of Congress, and all the way to the White House.

Every single voice matters ... every single vote counts.

It is a wonderful blessing that our family can discuss daily all of the "happenings" ... that in their young years, our children can recognize that they have a voice, and we can inspire in them the sincere desire to use their voice.

"One nation, under God ..."
