Political Science 101 and What's Happening In Our Yard Today



Iam not an expert in politics--in fact, very far from it.  However, I don't think it takes an elite intellectual to know that our country is veering further and further from what we were founded on--namely the principles of God.

God has blessed us so tremendously and now we are leaving Him out--


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




This verse seems to tell us that the state of our land depends upon the condition of the heart of the people of God.

What we need to do

humble oursleves
pray
seek His face
turn from our wicked ways


What God says He will do

hear from heaven
forgive our sin
and heal our land


This has to begin at the grass roots level--right in our own backyard, or front yard, our very own turf wherever that may be.

We must earnestly pray.

We must seek His face.  What do you think it means to seek God's face.

Deut. 4:29

Psalm 14:2

Psalm 63:1

and my favorite

Jeremiah 29:13

We, the people of God, must ask God to show us what our wicked ways are--

Then we must be willing to turn from them

And then to actually turn from them--

Collectively if we all did this, can you even begin to imagine what an incredible revival we would experience.

In fact, it would be more than a revival, it would be another great awakening I think.

I have a lot on my heart concerning all of this so I'm thinking this will be all for today and we will take this subject up again next week.  I am still not through being "too preachy!"

My husband and his friend since childhood, David, are building a decorative fence outside our office window.  I am on the inside taking this picture and had a pretty good photo going until my husband raised the hammer.






Aw, this is better!


The first tinges of fall on our Pixie ____________.  My mind just went blank--can't remember the name of these.  I remind myself of Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail when she is sitting in front of the computer typing to her NY152 friend--she explains that every time she needs a good retort her mind just goes _____________.     B     L     A     N     K

and the beautiful little button mums--

In the flag picture, you can see some of my hand-lettering on this address sign--
It's amazing how acrylic paints hold up to the weather--this has been up there
about 8 years I think--

Hope your weekend is blessed!

I totally agree that our country is definitely headed in the wrong direction but it's going to take a miracle for people to turn ad pray...God is still in the miracle business but I am wondering if he is setting things up for the end....

Those shots of Larry and his friend are so cute...It looks like Larry is hitting him in the head with the hammer. I bet they had lots of fun with that project....

Beautiful flower shots....
They do have lots of fun together--Thank God for good friends!

Yes, Nancy, I understand what you are saying about "the end times." The Russia/Iran thing sure seems to be getting lined up with the prophecies in the Bible.
