Spring Greetings

Hello again!

Well, it's not like I've completely forgotten about blogging... it's more like I've been uninspired to do it. I didn't really have anything to write. But today I thought I'd write a note of encouragement to whomever is reading this.

The Health Care Bill finally passed last week. It seems like our nation is on a downward spiral, doesn't it? What could possibly bring our nation back to repentance? Back to where God wants it to be?
I mean, even if the best president were elected today, here and now, would that really bring the right kind of change to America? Probably not. This isn't something that one person can do, or even a group of people.

But it's something that God can do. Only God can change the hearts of people. Only He can cause the greatest awakening that our country has ever seen. And only an awakening TO GOD will really save America.

What part do we play in this? God has not called us to sit back and blame everything on end times. We can still pray. And we can still earnestly seek God about what our part is in the awakening.

It starts with us. No one else will do our part for us - no one else CAN do our part for us. Spend extra time seeking God about this. You know those moments of spare time you have? Waiting in line at the store, driving here and there in the car. Waiting for a concert to start. Those are all times when we can pray. When we're running or bike riding or whatever form of exercise you do, you can pray then. What better way to spend your time? And you don't always have to pray out loud, unless God directs you to. Sometimes you're not in a position where it would be right to pray out loud. God still hears silent prayers.

James 5:16 says, "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."

Matthew 21:21-22 says, "Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. 22 You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”

Have a great week!
