Nothing to see here folks, just America being America

The election has come and gone. Whether we got who we wanted or not we have a new President of the United States.

There will always be second guessing and people saying and acting out of character what we have to remember is that the President is NOT; GOD. He is a very flawed man of the world trying to manage a country of flawed people. We as Christians have to place our faith in the correct place if it wasn’t there already. This election is probably no different that when Ronald Reagan was elected. Remember he was an entertainer too. There was lot of fallout after his presidency as well and we all survived that.     2 Corinthians 4: 17-18For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long.  Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever.  So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen.  For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.” (NLT) – New Living Translation.

This piece of Bible has been used and translated down it a smaller version of itself which simply states “This too shall pass”. Everyone may be caught off guard by the results of last night GOD wasn’t though. He knew exactly what was going to happen and what will happen in your life now as well as in the future. Put your trust in him and all things will become possible.

Women I thought the world was ready for a woman to run the country, other countries have done this and succeeded with a very balanced outlook for their countries going forward. In our country our male ego’s will not allow the possibility that a woman could possibly do a better job. Was this woman flawed of course she comes from flawed humanity as the others have. She did however have the experience needed to be able to handle some of the higher level conversations that Mr. Trump will now be thrust into. She had the polish we needed to maintain the status quo. I think that is what a lot of us were thinking would help.

Maybe this change will be an eye opener. I really don’t think so because as I stated in my opener we have been here before and we didn’t learn from that experience either. So what will make this entertainer different? Nothing at all. He as Ronald Reagan was is a figure head that is fed his lines by the financial institutions and big businesses to keep them in power. The presidency is a job that is held by a person that should have everyone’s best interest at their heart. That has proven to be wrong time and time again. When we allow the wealthy to place a person in front of them for their interests alone we get what we received last night. How much is enough, the insurance companies, finance institutions, medical companies, pharmaceutical companies all of these establishments are for themselves not us.

We have to wait another 4 years before we can hope to put someone different in that office if we will be allowed to. So go to work earn your money, pay your bills, and respect your fellow man. Above all else put your faith where it should be in GOD not man.

The Movies

Movies, like most; I love watching them I really do. Something I have noticed over the years of watching movies is that; the writer creates this story where a single person can be super human and save humanity all by himself. There is just him/her and the regular people left, any that don’t stand for what the hero does has a real problem because no one can match him/her. Fiction that is what movies are made of.

There are actual people that reach a few of their goals and even amass large amounts of wealth. There are however no superhumans among us. The only perfect person that I have ever heard of is Christ. Yet in his story he took beating after beating for us. He saved the day by dying. Fiction is feel good to our our mortal minds and bodies. Fiction allows us to dream of and imagine. Some who believe the movies may have thoughts of if only I can inject myself with something that can give me superhuman strength(drugs), if only I could fly from the top of this building(suicide), if I can beat anyone at anything in competition(pride). We can’t be the same type of hero we see in the movies. That is fiction, we can be a strong light to other men that may have doubts. To give an uplifting word to a father that may be struggling or down at the moment or even reach back and help if we can.

My thoughts haven’t ever been on anything mind altering; I did have a lot of pride in sport or in developing in the computer world though, in conquering anyone who challenged me on the court or marveling at the creations I am able to make. I thought it was me that had this special ability to play at a higher level than most. Make these grand sites and networks and databases. It wasn’t it is God inside me that allowed me those abilities. I have started my walk with Christ and even though it is not ever easy it is worth it to me. I can’t believe in those movies anymore as I did when I was kid. I am now a man that has his own children and family to guide and protect. I have to believe in the one I know can help me. A super hero can’t save me but God can.

We don’t have anything to lose when we turn ourselves over to Christ and everything to gain. You can still be the same person, a better person because instead of tearing down your wife you now build her up. You help her instead of allowing her to do everything for you and your children. Instead of screaming at your son you speak to him. Instead of drinking a fifth of alcohol or an entire six-pack of beer you maybe have a drink or two a week. It can all happen for you, it really can. I don’t have the answers you need I only started to walk with him myself. Together though we can get the answers we all are seeking and help as many people as we can before its our time.

Thanks for reading, till next post this has been
