I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Rev 3:15-16

Today was an historic day for our country. We now have an African-American president. And I am actually happy about that. I truly am. We, as a country have come so far and to think, that "we" have elected a man who would have been only property in the past, truly an historic day.

But, blah. I only wish that we also had elected a true Christian president. By the way, I, personally, did not vote for our newest president, and I can't see anything changing so that I would vote for him ever.
I just feel like as a nation, we have moved further away from where God would like us to be. I feel that it won't be long and His hand of protection will be lifted from our country and we will become a land of evil.
I cannot be happy about the prospect of the next four years politically. The fact that our new president has been very vocal about the fact that he would love to sign the Freedom of Choice Act into law makes me feel ill. Even if that were the only thing about his political agenda I am upset about, it would be enough. It's not, it's just the one that I feel very close to.

And, well, I'm tired. I want to live in a world where people think it's wrong to kill babies; where people actually believe in what the Bible says and live by it, not just say they believe for the sake of saying it.

And, that's all I've got right now. I wanted to says so much more, but I'm just tired.

And I am praying for President Obama, by the way. I do want him to do well, to lead our country with dignity and grace. I really pray that he will be touched by God, to really see Him, to want to draw closer to Jesus and lead the way He would so desire.
My prayer is also with our people. I truly wish for every person in the United States to see their need for Jesus, to know that He is the only truth, to be saved and not end up in hell. I haven't always cared about everyone, but I do now. My heart breaks to know that many of my family and friends will not be in heaven with me someday. And I want everyone there, including our president. I only hope it's not too late.
