Imperfect Elections to Perfect Results?

I read an interesting article in the Huffington Post the other day.  It stated that Representative Glen Thompson (R. Pa.) was going to vote for Trump, despite the recent conversations and allegations of sexual misconduct against him.  Representative Thompson said his wife pointed out a fact to him.

“Her explanation to me was that God takes the imperfect and makes perfect for His purpose.”

And that is so true.  Look at Moses who was a murderer, and David who was adulterous and then a murderer to get the wife of a friend. And those are just two very flawed humans from the bible, who God molds into His purpose. But don’t be led to believe God overlooks those imperfections either. Usually in order for them to worthy, God has to raise them from the ashes in the bottom of the barrel of life.

Now, I would like to throw a monkey wrench into Representative Thompson’s wife statement.

The same words and theory can be applied to Hillary too.  God could take her greed and self-interest serving self,  throw her to the bottom of the barrel and roll her around and grind her into ashes.  And then raise Hillary up to fulfill His purpose.

Maybe that is where our statement, “What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander,” developed.  And certainly God does not discriminate on who is ash worthy.

So, now we have two disgustingly imperfect human beings running for President.  Both stinking with bad decisions and flawed lives. Which one is ash worthy and which one is just slime lining the barrel?

I don’t know, do  you?

And I am about as sick of politicians as I am of this election process.  It has been filled with bribes, lies, lewd swipes, and probably a few butt wipes.  Sorry for the last comment, but I have come to view all of this as I would dog poo on the bottom of my shoe.

There is an answer though.  And it came from Jesus.

Jesus’ answer for the politicians in his day is just as good of an answer for today’s politics.  When the Sadducees tried to ensnare Jesus in a trap by asking if it was right to pay taxes to Caesar; Jesus had the perfect answer.

“Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”

Basically Jesus meant that if your faith is in God, then you owe everything to God. And if your faith is in Caesar (government), then you owe everything to Caesar.  It all depends on where your faith lies.

And I know exactly where my faith lies; God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!

So as long as I believe God’s promises for my life and the lives of my children and grandchildren; everything is going to be fine.  For God has brought me through the fires of poverty, refinement, persecution, and my own bad decisions.  Each time raising me up to what He wants me to be and do.

Whether we have a good leader or a bad leader, God is always in control!  My faith is in God for our country to have a miraculous turnaround. Not in man.

Where does your faith lie?

Once again, my answer is prayer. May I suggest that as you pray, believe in God and His will for your life and the lives of all the people of the world. For this is but a brief moment in time here on earth, because our eternity is with Him.

God Bless You!

God Bless America!
