THIS AMAZING EMAIL IS FROM A FRIEND…I THINK YOU’LL BENEFIT FROM READING IT:
Hey there, Z!
What crazy (criminally insane is the better term) times we’re living in.
I’m sure, like me and tens of millions of others, it’s a challenge to get your spirits up every day, because we know the leftists are going to roar like hungry zombies across our beautiful republic and not only erase the gains of the last four years, but do some serious damage to America’s future.
But I keep reminding myself of a few things…
1)Prayer is powerful. And we must pray. God’s people have had it very easy in America for a long time, and we are not the praying people we were. So if this moves us to get on our knees more purposefully and more often, good.
2) I weep for America, but preserving the republic is not our mission. Reaching souls for Jesus is our mission. So I’m trying to keep that in front of me, and be more intentional about it.
3) America is an anomaly in all of history, throughout the world. It was a convergence of many things and born of blood and pain. But it was always a fragile construct, as people’s hearts are full of all kinds of bad stuff. That we survived this long is kind of miraculous. I don’t know that Earth will ever see a nation like America, at its best, again, before Christ sets up His kingdom.
4) Maybe it’s our turn to suffer – and scripture says this is an honor, a privilege, to suffer for His sake. So sure, we’ll do what we can to try to preserve the nation, but these days are so fleeting, so if Satan unleashes his hordes of slavering agents through whatever willing people are out there, then we will stand, and speak courageously in Jesus name, love them in spite of their spite, and love one another. And in between, we will try to squeeze joy out of the small moments and any victories, cultivate ready hearts of gratitude and worship our King in all things.
Love you and miss you. Hope you are holding up okay. I am weeping for our nation with you, but rejoicing in what seems a current of revival among a remnant. For other believers – I fear they’re falling into delusion, and quickly. But even this, scripture said would happen. Maybe we ARE in the last days. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
Z: I am adding this: “”Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:26
