It is my intention to spend time with you;
Would you make it your direction to spend time with me?
As Obvious as the Sun rises in the sky;Today make yourself known to me.
Reveal to me the glory of the day that you have said;
"This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
DAY 17 of 40
Let us not look to ourselves for our solutions
Let us not Turn to Man for his good intentions
We Turn to You
We cannot Fix what we have done
There is no solution
O MOST HIGH GOD
WE TURN TO YOU
WHEN I WAS A CHILD I THOUGHT AS A CHILD WOULD.
Growing up I watched John Wayne, Errol Flyinn, Classic movies of Good conquering Evil and even greater stories of Dying for your Country.
When I was a child I thought dying for your country was good thing.
Getting older I used to watch Battle Cry, King Arthur, Exodus and many movies that all wanted to tell me to die for and Idea. To give my life fo
r a higher calling, be devoted to the IDEAL even if it meant my death.
When I was a child I thought ideas were a good thing to believe in.
Later in life people told me I needed to solve social issues. I watched SCI FI and fantasy movies telling me I could make a difference, I could change the world, I could save the planet, the hungry, the poor and the unborn.
When I was a young man I thought solving issues were a good thing.
I got Old.
I have seen in retro movies and the same stories being told again to die for your country. And I have seen a generation of people actually think bombing each other and fighting wars for peace actually work....
I am too old for that. Been there, done that.
I have seen the ideal societies again playing push me pull you with everyone saying I have to make a change because it really is up to me stop Abortion, Fix the Debt, Create Jobs, Do healthcare, renew the world....
Sorry, I am too old for that.
Been there, done that.
You know even Christians now are telling me I have to vote Mormon and put away being a Christian because if I don't vote I am not saved or somehow I am not "with them"
So sorry, I have decided to Follow Jesus.
I don't follow men, I don't follow creeds. I don't follow you when you have high idea's or moral dilemmas. I don't worry or fret or act like I can save the World. I can't
I follow Jesus.
OTHERS MAY DIE FOR ALOT OF REASON:
I HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE WITH JESUS.
The Religion of Politics
People don't want to admit how Religious they are by practicing politics. And yert they do the same things in politics they do in religion.
People will put Faith in a candidate. Organizers want you to Believe in a party. Dogmas are campaign promises, made by men but now power in them to be true. Doctrines are party platforms people want everyone to agree on but seldon do. I really don't see any difference between a religious fanatic and poltical junkie. They both go to and use extremes to accomplish one purpose.
As good as religion can be at times and abused at others, I see the same truth in politics. Truth, Honesty, Integrity, Social Justice, Moral righteousness, just like religion I see politics wanting those to be done while in fact doing the opposite, much like religion. Wars, Debates, Agreements, Money, Economics, Health, Commerce, Trade. I do find the RELIGION OF POLITICS often more active in America than relgions of man.
Sadly I see On the Altar of Politcs America crucified of her Soul for the sake of Elections and little Grace or God involved at all
Religion and Politics cannot solve personal relationships, only people can.
Jesud wanted nothing do with Politics or Religion
If it meant giving up God in the Process
