We are here for such a time as this!



I’ve never delved into politics, unlike others. The last four years I have become more interested in what’s going on in the world around us. It’s a scary time, some might say…And I agree. But “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim. 1:7)

How did the President get reelected? We as a Christian nation have turned our backs on God.

Some say America is doomed now that we have to endure four more years with President Obama leading our country. I say we are blessed. God has placed us here at this very time. We have been given the opportunity to witness firsthand the staging of events that precede the coming of our living Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

But what will you do? Will you sit back and let fear overcome you about what’s going to happen to our nation, or will you pray for our President and the leaders surrounding him, that their hearts will be changed? God can do this if we earnestly pray and seek him. Will you expect everyone around you to do all the work, or will you be a witness to all nations and your neighbors and friends. The time is drawing near?

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Col 3:2

Posting my writing on this blog has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But God has called me to write, even if no one reads what I’ve written. If you’ve stopped by please let me know. And thank you for taking two minutes out of your day, to read what God placed on my heart.

Thanksgiving is drawing near, and I want to thank Jesus that he placed me in a home where I learned about the one and only God of the universe, instead of a home where I’d be forced to worship other god’s.

Take advantage of your heritage. Praise God for his blessings on us, and share Him with others who so desperately need Him. This is what we were called to do as heirs of God.

I heard an amazing speaker, Christine Caine, at the Women of Faith conference last month. From her very words I hope to do exactly this!

I want to make Satan sorry he ever messed with Cindy Patterson.
