A Place Where Danyelle shares her heart and mind.
You know, I am really one who rarely dibs in politics because I just believe that the church and state are separate, but I also believe that although separate- the church has played a lucrative role in getting politics to understand that we have a voice, freedom, and distinctive measures that we operate in, as the fore-runner for the people. Had it not been for the educated preacher with enough God in Him and the will to lose his own life that he might gain life more rewardingly, Pastor Martin Luther King, I wonder who would have been the fore-runner. John the Baptist, the fore-runner for Jesus announced the way of the coming Messiah to a land that was filled with political woes and politicians who felt they knew it all.
Nevertheless, I am so put off by the struggle that my President is faced with and his desire to fight for a people who are so unstable. One day they are with him, and the next day, they are joining in with criticism. “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” This is what comes to my mind when I think of Americans who voted for him and Democrats who stand by him, but have lost their zeal because of those who oppress him. Then my mind go to the crooks that we keep putting in Congress who get richer every day off our dimes, but would suffer even more of us being homeless and out on the streets, so that they won’t have to come out of their fat pockets for nothing! You know, the anger that I felt for them even debating on extending unemployment made me want to tell every homeless person in America to find out where their congressmen live and sleep on their lawns! But if they did not care about you being homeless, they surely would not care about you being thrown in jail because to them, at least you will have some place to lay your heads.
What is our country coming to when, your state congressman can employ a man and give him insurance for his family with a $6000.00 deductible. Then have the nerve to give him $72.00 a month, and say this is to help them with their doctor expenses. And this is exactly what your President is trying to prevent. I understand we all have the power to get wealth and whether some tap into it or not, it does not give those who have the right to treat those who labor for you as hired slaves. We have to stop looking at people as rich or poor, or black or white, and start looking at people as brother or sister. I hear God saying, “I gave to them a President from both sides, and still they did not see that they were one.”
Instead of the oneness, I just believe that they see our President just like the Philistine Goliath saw David, “as a little boy”, but what they did not recognize was that David came in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom they have defiled…..because when you do God’s people any kind of way whether just or unjust, saved or unsaved, poor or rich…you do it unto HIM. But I also hear God saying, “It is written that if My people who are called by My name, would humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked way, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Our land is in need of a healing and God is waiting on His true believers to allow the Holy Spirit to usher us into prayer. Not for money and jobs, but that His face be seen in dark places, that His glory would fill the temples, and that His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven!
Just as God appoints Kings, he appoints Presidents,! We must remember that we belong to God....good, bad, indifferent, talkative, shy, clean, dirty, sinful, grateful, or unthankful...He is God and He knows.
