Ive been praying about how to vote…. I really REALLY wish Ron Paul would’ve made it into the finals. I’ve been praying about where my vote will slap Obama in the face… and I truly feel it is not to vote for Paul… Part of me is really bummed. I want to make a difference. But I hate to write him in knowing that it’s very very unlikely that he will win this election anyway! I pray he tries again in 4 years! so today this came to my inbox…. from a friend of a friend… so I don’t want McCain to be one vote short… and me vote for Paul… ykwim?! what if he’s ONE VOTE SHORT? sigh… that’s what I keep thinking…… I’m still praying and I’m sure He will lead me!

Last night I was driving home from the store and sighed with heartache
over the many signs promoting Obama for President. Seems like those
signs just keep getting bigger and more flamboyant every day. A little
part of me inside resigned… resigned to the “fact” that Obama is
going
to win this election and the world as we know it going to change(Oh
yes,
we’ll get our “change.”) and millions of little babies are going to
pay
the price.

As I read through blogs this morning I got the impression there are
more
people than me trembling at the thought that Obama has a huge
advantage
and is going to win the election with flying colors. He’s so popular,
and his support base is so big… And those signs, those signs are
just
SO BIG!

Well, what do you know, God encouraged me through a talking,
battery-operated doll that Glory pulled out of the toybox this
morning.
It was a David Doll that tells his own story and then quotes a couple
verses. The verse came out first, and then the story as I listened on
from the next room:

“David said to the Philistine: You come against me with sword, and
spear, and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord
Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” 1
Samuel 17:45

I am David. I was chosen by God to become a great king…I didn’t wear
a crown, but I was filled with the Spirit of God and knew that the
Spirit would be with me always. Like that time I discovered I was a
great warrior. There was a war and my brothers were fighting for our
people. I was taking food to them when I saw a giant named Goliath
teasing and threatening my brothers and their army. He was HUGE; he
was
taller than any man I’d ever seen, and his arms and legs were solid
muscle. He was yelling for someone, anyone, to step forward to fight
him, and then he would leave the army alone. I took out my sling. I
knew God would protect me. I put a stone in my sling and threw it
right
toward Goliath. The stone hit that big giant right between the eyes
and
he fell to the ground… I trusted in God and tried to serve Him
faithfully.”

That doll spoke volumes to me.

First, we may not wear the crowns of men, but we are still filled with
the Spirit of God.

Second, maybe we need to rediscover that we are great warriors in the
Kingdom of God.

Third, we can still join with our brothers and fight for our people-
in
prayer, fasting, and by voting.

Fourth, Obama is just a man. Could he be used by the Enemy? Possible.
So don’t forget, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but
against
________. Now you finish the verse from memory. You know it. Say it
out loud. Let the Word encourage you!

Fifth, teasing and threatening? Baaaah!

Sixth, it only took David, with God’s help, ONE stone to take down
Goliath. So don’t fall for the lie that your ONE vote isn’t going to
make a difference. Indeed, it will.

Seventh, trust in God and try to serve Him faithfully.

Feel free to pass this email along.

  1. oooh thanks for posting this! this is also heavy on my heart this morning!!

  2. *sigh* Phil and I just had this discussion yesterday. As much as we(or maybe just I, idk) we keep going back and forth on who to vote for, McCain or Paul….I’m leaning more for McCain today…it’s constantly changing. I guess I’ll know for sure when I vote. Thankfully I’m on God’s team and not man’s, so this craziness will some day pass.
