Encouragement


In light of today's Supreme Court ruling, I wanted to tell you something that I thought of when I awoke this morning. I think it is important to remember that even though things seem to be getting worse day by day and hour by hour in our society, both here and abroad, we have to remember that God has a plan.

Frequently, when God has a plan things get worse for a long time before things are made better. It seems like human beings don't really "get it" until something becomes truly horrible - when a true impression is made. Roman society slipped downhill for hundreds of years and it took hundreds more to rebuild from the decadence and hedonism and evil that went on then. That is happening now. And we have to trust God and his plan. With so many fronts being made - refusing conscience clauses, pushing gay marriage, millions of babies dying in abortions, etc. we have to trust God and His plan, and stand firm.

We have to pray and try to see how we as individuals, and as communities and societies, fit into that plan. When even Oreo cookies are against us - and Target, Starbucks, JCPenney, etc. have sided against traditional values, we have to remember that God is in our corner and we have to trust him to lead the fight. So don't be discouraged, because God is much bigger then the Puppet-with-a-Hidden-Master-Obama, Pelosi, and the like. God is in control.
