…hearts full of evil

November 8, 2008

I’ve been  thinking about the ugliness that I have seen this week since the historic event that took place November 4  here in  the United States of America.  These thoughts have sometimes kept me up at night.  Barack Obama has been elected as our new president.  I have heard terrible things being said about a man who has not yet taken office.  It has caused my heart to ache to see the bigotry that had been hidden and cloaked in garments of niceness and tolerance. Now the big event has uncovered the true nature of some.  Hate speak abounds.  Nothing is held back.  The  feelings of the heart are being exposed.  It has made me sick.   I searched for answers in the Holy scriptures.  King Solomon offered an explanation in the 9th book of Ecclesiastes verse 3.  This explanation has calmed my spirit and brought understanding.

“This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all:  yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.”

Hearts full of evil and madness. The only explanation that has brought definition to what I have seen and heard. I want to be a child of God.  I want my heart to be filled with love and understanding.  Creator God please help me.

Just thinking……….

Thinking about the next president.

October 17, 2008

Who will be the next president here in the USA?  Everyone is talking and talking and making more than enough noise.  I am just listening and praying that whoever becomes president will respect the Creator of the Universe, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.  The God who created this earth and parted the Red Sea and makes blind eyes to see, that God.  The respect of God is the beginning of wisdom.  I hope the new president chooses to be wise.
