There is a lot of celebration, discord, etc. that comes with the change of leadership in the United States. It’s a time of change, but also a time of hope. New leaders come forth with the support of a grateful nation that looks to them to protect our citizens, grow or economy, create jobs, and most of all…seek God in all they say and do!
It has been seen over time that nations that have lost their moral compass have been destined to fail. It is important that we all make a point of praying for our Leaders, despite who you may have supported in the past. Politics should never trump (pardon the pun) our faith or our country. These Leaders have sacrificed much to just consider getting involved, and once elected, set aside their lives to serve the public. We must also not forget the families of these Leaders, who did not ask to get in the middle of all of this, but have now been placed under a microscope for the whole world to see. We must seek to protect them and cover them all in Prayer.
Take a moment right now, right here, to just ask God to protect and guide them in all they seek to do on our behalf.
“Blessed Is The Nation Whose God Is The Lord”

It’s kind of scary to admit this, but I have seen my fair share of Presidential Elections. Some that were decided in favor or my preferred candidate, while others went the other way. What I am confident in stating is that we live in the greatest country in the world and regardless of our differences, this country is the symbol of freedom across the planet. I have traveled to some of the most difficult places around the world and I have seen bad, very bad, and terribly corrupt. Regardless of what happens in this election, we must never lose what makes this country great and seek to come together as Americans. Remember, always look to God to provide guidance in all that we say and do, even when the results are different than our preferences.
Leading in Non-profits and Ministries is very hard. There are those that feel that the leaders are perfect, should have no flaws, and never make a mistake. The truth is, Leaders are people too!
My heart weeps as we deal with a horrific attack on the Dallas, TX Police. Dallas is my hometown, not a perfect place, but a city full of amazing people with a heart for others. We continue to pray for the families of all who have been killed or injured. It’s time for all people of faith and compassion for their fellow man to wake up and realize what is happening around us.
