I ran into this post as I was clicking links on blogs I am reading these days. I wanted to share it because I could have (should have) wrote this very blog post! - Keith
My trust is in the Lord. As much as I am presently able to trust in Him, it is.
My trust is not in…
1.The Congress or the President.
2.Legislation, good or bad.
3.The barrel of a gun.
4.Any flag or any nation.
I will not look at these things and allow them to control my emotions, my hope or my ability to function as a son of God, a citizen of His Kingdom.
Too much – too much weight is put on these things in this day and time, and in this place. The expansion of God’s Kingdom into this realm of reality does not depend on some bill passing or not passing. It simply doesn’t.
And, for the record, I don’t say these things because I’m disheartened by the vote passed in the House of Representatives last night (Health Care Reform) . I actually think that’s mostly a good thing. Many who know me, know my anabaptist leanings in the area of politics, so I usually don’t say much about it. It was on my mind, though, so there you have it.
