A WHOLE NEW WORLD


I believe that today begins a changed life for many of us. Our Christian President left office today and a new presidency began.


I hope and pray that our new president will bring good things for our country. I hope that he will do all he can to restore morality, justice, and equality to all the people.


During the presidential election, I felt a "disquietude" (is that a word) in my spirit that has not gone away... but has only worsened over time.


I don't want to sound like some kind of "doom's day prophet"... but... I believe we all need to pray fervently for the new President to hear from God almighty. We need to ask God to lead and guide him in every step he takes and every decision he makes.


We need to draw closer to the Lord ourselves because this new season feels like a "time of change" for sure... and I'm not sure that change will come in the way that many are expecting.


It is time for God's people to look up.... to God ... for guidance..... and to look inward... to examine heart and mind.... to set priorities and get in tune with the Lord.


Lord, forgive us all where we fall short and help us meet the challenges that face us today.

Amen, Mary! Amen...that has been the urging in my Spirit...pray pray and pray some more

But if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways THEN would I hear from Heaven and heal their land... (that's from memory so correct me if I quoted it wrong)

thank you for the encouragement to PRAY!

thank you for sharing your heart about our new president. I, too, feel burdened to pray for him that he hears the words of God and follows them. We were blessed to have a man of honor and integrity the past 8 years. thank you, too, for visiting my blog. I love meeting new friends and always appreciate new comments.
