truth has stumbled.

November 5, 2008 § 2 Comments

I really, really did not expect to feel this way.  I’ve felt almost removed from the whole election process, even though I’ve prayed a lot for it (just goes to show, praying knits your heart to something more than you might think).  But I’ve just thought, I belong to a different Kingdom.  God will use whoever sits in that oval office.

But today, I feel really concerned.  I feel mad at the American people and how loudly they have spoken in favor of the shedding of innocent blood.  That is scary.  Scary to me.

I know that in this hour, the Church is going to shine like never before, because the darkness is probably going to be gloomier than we’ve seen.  It’s our glory to display His shining, colorful holiness.

And in the midst, I keep plugging along, helping doctors get insurance, organizing meetings, chasing deadlines, and experimenting with tofu.  It’s days like this that make me long for Jesus’ return.

    Good stuff, Bekah. I share your sentiments and frustrations. Thought-provoking and feeling-provoking. It’s so easy for me to get sucked in to the world’s reality. Leaving (releasing) the big picture to God’s reality, though, frees me to focus on the day-to-day opportunities he provides, as you say, to keep plugging …, helping …, organizing …, etc., and in doing so to express his love, do his will, as best I can. But, …tofu? What about your trademark apple pie?
