Notice how our President is true to his word? How he reaches out to those of the other side of the table (i.e., Republicans and our Muslim bothers and sisters) in hopes of a peaceful truce? What a good example for our children to emulate. You see, in politics, there are no permanent enemies and no permanent friends – just permanent interests.
Our President can see the bigger picture: In order to move along the proposed stimulus package to help the United States citizens, and our country’s economic stagnation, we must come together for the common good. In Hebrews 10:25, we are encouraged to assemble ourselves together to solve common problems:
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Thank God that we have President who understands and values biblical principles as he works to solve problems and make decisions. Way to go Mr. President!
What a weekend in Washington, DC, celebrating with my fellow Americans, the inauguration of our 44th President of the United States. A born leader and experienced to usher in much needed change, my family and I had a GREAT time walking the national mall, viewing the U.S. Capitol, watching several anchors and reporters conduct interviews on live TV on the mall, participating in community service projects on Dr. King’s Day, visiting the official Obama stores that sell merchandise, and walking down Pennsylvania Avenue along the blue line (parade route). That was during the day. In the evening, we attended one of three scheduled fabulous inaugural balls. We did this TOGETHER.
What have have witnessed over the past year is exactly what God intends – for His people to come TOGETHER and celebrate one another. To experience UNITY vice division as the 43rd President, and his followers, actively promoted for eight years. We were not created to oppose one another, start wars, constantly fight, and underestimate and devalue other’s potential.
This weekend, God lifted up a man who has been chosed to lead America, and the world: To love one another (1 John 4:7-8) as God loves us – His creation. OUr 44th President gets it and always has. Preparation met opportunity and he will walk in it for the next four years. Will you join us to make this WORLD a better place?
God bless you and God bless America! Give God the Glory!
As we come to a close on another year, I want to take the time to wish you a very, very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year in 2009. As we reflect on the old, and look forward to the new, allow God to quiet your spirit and mind for the coming days. Remember, Jesus is the reason for this season….so rest and be still as you make necessary adjustments in your life for 2009.
For example, 2008 was the year of simplicity for the Johnson family. We simplified our lives by getting organized, planned better and took our time to make informative decisions.
In 2009, my prayer for my family will center on financial management due to our dismal economy. Not only will we cut back on unnecessary and worthless expenses, we will better manage what we have. God’s blessings extend into our finances and they must be managed according to His Word. This is my prayer. Please do the same within your family.
God bless you and enjoy God’s blessings in 2009.
