I am sure the majority of people on this forum felt the way I did yesterday.
Yesterday I felt as if I was in the middle of a spiritual war and all hell was breaking loose. I spent a large part of the day trying to figure out how to respond to the election. I read, watched youtube videos and talked to some friends. Last night while sitting on the couch and channel surfing we ended up on AHC, American History Channel and they had a special about the American Revolution and the people who sacrificed so much for the founding of our freedoms and Liberty. This just made me more upset. At one point I turned to my wife and said "realistically what have any of us sacrificed for our freedoms?" I served in the military leaving on the day I turned 18 for Fort Knox Ky. I spent several tours overseas but I came home and eventually went on with my life.
Over the next hour an idea formed in my head. Ill start a caravan to go to Washington D.C. and make a stand for our freedoms. I figured I could get a semi and paint a great log on the side N.A.R. (Next American Revolution) P.F.A. (Patriots for America) V.F.L. (Vets for Liberty) something like that. A great eagle and the American flag on the side. I also follow a large number of channels on youtube and figure I could contact all of them and ask them to spread the word. Maybe we could get a million people to go. This idea was to go peacefully and make a stand but be prepared to surround the White House and capital facing outward to protect our freedoms and liberty. Watching the stories of those men and woman who sacrificed all for my freedom I felt ashamed. I said nothing to my wife but thought I will sleep and pray on it and take another look at it in the morning.
We went to bed early considering that the previous night I got about 3 hours of sleep I felt exhausted. As I lay in bed I had a long conversation with God.
I thought of Paul, Moses, David and all the prophets and stories in the Bible. I ended with a simple but direct question "God what should I do, I prayed for direction and understanding" I quickly fell asleep.
At around 3 the dogs started barking and it woke me up. I got up to check out the homestead but found nothing. (We have 2 Anatolians, Shrek and Fiona and well Shrek is a giant he is 185lbs but he is the sweetest dog and Fiona is smarter then most people) Coming back inside I got a drink of water and went to the bathroom. As I climbed into bed I thought well? And suddenly thoughts filled my mind "what are you going to fight for". I realized I felt calm and relaxed in my soul and as a flood of thoughts filled my mind I knew I had my answer.
What are you going to fight for? What is worth dyeing for?
I know, there is nothing in Washington D.C. worth fighting for. What would we be fighting to save. I dare you to answer the question what part of our government is still God fearing? What in our government is based on the freedoms and principles that the founding fathers established. They took prayer out of school, our schools teach the values of socialism and Marxism. They have murdered 30 million babies. They vilify all that I hold dear. Me the guy that volunteered for the Army at 18, for over 150 years every male in my family history has fought for this country. I felt proud upholding the tradition, My grandfather fought in the pacific on Guadalcanal, my father served in Vietnam and died of cancer when he was 32 (agent orange) when he died the doctor said his body was riddled with cancer.
Please anyone tell me what are we trying to save.
John McConnel lol I guarantee you witin a year at most some shooting will happen and this dirt bag politician will agree to an assault gun ban. These people have traded the soul of this country one step at a time for the past 50 years. We have been slowly walked into the abyss. Babylon hell we are Babylon, can someone tell me why we have soldiers in 87 countries, just one Mali, and anyone plz tell me why are Americans in Mali, Syria, Iraq and a thousand other hellholes. Why are we worried about the safety of people that are slaughtering Christians all over the world.
GOD ANSWERED MY QUESTION! He asked me the a question, What is worth fighting for?
I have found my peace, I now know that there will come a time to make a stand but that stand is not to keep this abomination we call a government in power. Everything we are seeing is evil it is nothing but a power play on both sides. Choose the lessor of two evils, NO for me and my own we follow the Lord, he will direct us when the time comes.
When one of these politicians stands up for God then I can stand with them but until then I will wait. God will send us a leader He always does! I will wait for the call when its right we will all know it.
The peace that surpasses all understanding came to my last night, my turmoil was of my own creation. Pick a side! no because none of them are on God side.
My apologies for the long winded nature of this post. I pray all of you find that peace that came to me last night. For now I lol will stack food to the rafters and make our farm better and our relationship with God stronger.
PS: Our stomp bag arrived this week!!! one more peace of the plan is in place.
