America Has Spoken

Well folks, American has spoken. The racial barrier has been broken! The "we can't possibly" to "all things are very possible." Yes we did! Yes we have! Yes we will! We are the world, we are the children, we are the ones to make a brighter day so let's start to live, dream and hope again!

Thank God for the victory because the world will be forever changed! Not because of an African-American elect President but because of a fair, just and loving human being who took a chance at hope and said yes WE can. Yes America did! With God's help we all did it-- be it African-American, Anglo, Hispanic, Asian, Native-America or just plain old American!!!

Yes, Americans elected (not selected) the best candidate to lead the USA and the world into a new day of promise, hope, prosperity and most of all -- love for our neighbors. Not that I'm being political or anything like that but, I'm able to recognize the obvious reality and truth. It was time for a change but all in God's timing and not that of our own. That change has come for all of God's people therefore we should all celebrate the victory in Jesus!

The road has been tough. The journey has been an up-hill battle! We've climbed the rough side of the mountain and if the mountain wasn't rough, we wouldn't have been able to climb it but slide right back down to bottom. God made a way out of what most people thought "no way" - not in "my life time" but God.....He is still in control of our world and our nation, our lives and our destinies. God will only allow His people (Believers) to suffer for so long. Look at how God stopped the Enemy from torturing Job.

No more self-inflicted suffering due to ignorance and hate. No more bias and practiced exclusivity. No more lies that have been passed down from generation to generation. The status quo has now become passe. No, I'm not suggesting that life will be a bed of roses but exclusivity and unnecessary suffering will soon dissipate as life unfolds. We can begin to embrace souls and not the color of ones skin.

Congratulations President Elect Barak Obama! May God bless you and your family. May God cover you with the blood of Jesus and send forth His angels to protect you where ever your feet may tread. May God bless our world and heal our land!!!

"Without change there is no growth and without growth there is no life" dgd

VOTE: Exercise your right! Be a part of the solution and not the problem. Don't complain if you don't vote. No regrets because you didn't vote. Take your citizenship serious because not all of us are free. Some of our brothers and sisters are incarcerated, unable to exercise their right but YOU who are free must do YOUR part and truly embrace your American status along with your civic duty and VOTE.

VOTE: Not because you are Democratic or Republican but because you embrace real change.... embrace truth...embrace the idea that all humankind, created by God, are equal and treated with fairness, dignity and respect. Embrace the idea that every person should be able to feed themselves and their families. Not one person should be impoverished! There is plenty of resources to feed the world because God made sure of it! Let's stop the attitude of greed. Let's discontinue the attitude of selfishness and share the wealth! What good will it be for a person to gain the whole world yet forfeits their soul? Or, what can one of us give in exchange for our souls? When Christ comes back in his Father's glory and with His angels, He will reward each person according to what they have done. (Mat. 16:26-27 )

VOTE: Let's toss aside our bias opinions and look closely at reality; not just ersatz facts but take a closer look at the "real world." The economy is every person's responsibility (young, old, rich, poor). What we sow into the economy, we have a right to reap from the economy; and what we take out, we must replenish or else there will be sparse selections. Don't bite off more than we can chew and don't attempt to hold that which our hands cannot carry. Let's stop buying into greed, gluttony and bling. The only Super Star is Christ!

VOTE: Let us all be a part of American history by making a positive change in the lives of our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, in the workplace and God knows we need to make a positive change in our churches (small, medium and mega). Let's stop hurting our neighbors and start helping each other achieve our highest potential. Change is inevitable but how many of us are willing to embrace change? Stop bickering over "whom" and start asking "how". What can "I" do to help instead of what can "YOU" do to help "ME"???

VOTE: Sure, change can be uncomfortable and even scary but God is still in control of this universe. In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to Him.
Heb 2:8 (b)

VOTE: As long as God is your Leader, do not fret when humankind does evil because eventually God will stop the evildoers in their tracks and they will be cut down like the grass....(Ps. 37:1)

VOTE: Be strong and of good courage because God's hands are directing the traffic of this universe. Ride with ease but plan carefully and strategically for YOUR future. Go ahead and make the necessary adjustments so that YOU are able to withstand in the evil days.

With God, ALL (which leaves out nothing) things are possible... (Mat. 19:26 (b)
