We all witness the Presidential election from the gruesome eighteen months of campaigning to the final results last Tuesday. If we are not seeing the mighty hand of God in the results night (Wednesday morn), then I don't know what other signs are we looking for...I came home at about 9:30 Tuesday night not wanting to turn the TV on and hear media reports to avoid emotional stress. My heart was heavy and I decided to sit on the couch, pray silently and even began dozing. My son woke me up and asked whether I wanted to watch news on TV. Reluctantly, I said okay. It didn't take that long for me to realize that something miraculous was happening with the results. All week-long, all I heard was that Hillary Clinton was ahead in the polls (though I seriously doubted the polls due to media bias) but that was not a reality in the actual election results that night. Seeing/sensing the hand of God, I continued watching till I heard the official announcement that Trump was the next President of the United States. And I exclaimed, "Thank you Lord, Glory to Your Name."
Well, you may think I was a great supporter of Trump. Uh-oh, not at all! Senator Ted Cruz left his Republican primary election campaign and my heart sunk. I mourned---for I knew how difficult it would be to choose when there's really no choice between Clinton nor Trump. It was emotionally hard but I picked myself up and I asked for God's leading all the way to Election Day. I knew I could not give my vote to Clinton in support of her demonic worldview which directly contradicts the Biblical worldview I hold dear to my heart. Of all the satanic agenda she 's involved with, she sealed the deal when she declared that "an unborn child has no constitutional right at any time and that she supports Roe vs. Wade to its core and held its position for many years." Video HERE. Wow, anyone who advocates the murder of the most vulnerable members or our society and disguises the killings of these helpless babies for women's rights will in no way have any regard for mine and other lives. If we don't serve her purpose, we are disposable to her. God is the Life-Giver and He is the Only One who can take that away! There is no excuse for that barbaric practice in this country as there are many families that would want to care for that baby if the mother only give him/her a chance. But the Truth is, all their (pro-choice) arguments are just a facade to a demonic agenda of eliminating what they consider "undesirables." God commanded me to fight for the unborn and I will be a voice for them no matter what. On the other hand, my greatest issue with Trump is that I couldn't rely on his word. I am not sure what position he would take from day to day. But then, I had to look at their Vice Presidential candidates and I am in total support of Mike Pence who is true brother in Christ and a man of God. So, after much prayer and inquiring of the Lord, I cast my vote! I am grateful that God heard the prayer of His people not only from this nation but from all other countries that showed their concern for America. He showed His mercy and faithfulness to them that love Him in this country and fulfilled 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
From where we have fallen from God in this country to the miraculous salvation of the Lord from the horrors of what could have been a Clinton presidency, I have all the more reason to rejoice and to come before the Lord with thanksgiving, rejoicing and singing. He is indeed King over all kings and nobody can stop His reign. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I am destined to reign with Him. There are no words to express how I appreciate my God. To the Church, our battle is not over---it's just beginning! We have to come in full force with faith, prayer and action to fulfill the Great Commission, to pray for our leaders and be productive citizens of our country. It's not the time to relax but to engage ourselves as fruitful members of our society. We are to bring the Lord Jesus in all pillars of our society and saturate them with God's power and love. We can do this, in Jesus Name!
For this Card, I used an image from Mo Manning called "Mummu and Me" and colored it with my Prismacolor markers. The base is a pre-cut A7 Kraft card from Paper Studio. The DP's are from Paper Studio as well. The scallop oval was die cut using Nestabilities, the leaves were punched out using Fiskars, the layered flowers from Prisma, the bras from Recollections and the glitters are from Stickles (Crystal). Lastly, I stitched all over this card.
