INTEGRITY: the quality or state of being of sound moral principle; uprightness, honesty, and sincerity.
As a female, Republican, conservative, Christian voter, I want to see our leadership in Washington have decency, honesty and INTEGRITY! It begins with IN and ends with GRIT. People with integrity are strong and courageous enough to stand against what is morally wrong. Did you ever see the movie TRUE GRIT with John Wayne? That kind of attitude without the whisky – sort of. Wow… let’s get some backbone in there mixed in with morals and values – wouldn’t that be fantastic? I miss Ronald Reagan. There, I got that out of my system.
SOUND MORAL PRINCIPLE. Are we quite certain that this is what our Republican candidate has? I don’t know, but I’m not sold on it. Is he the lesser of two evils? I don’t know that either. I know for sure and for certain I will not vote for the Democratic candidate. Will I vote at all? I just don’t know.
Take a look at this link from Max Lucado:
It has occurred to me that if I don’t vote at all, I’m opening the door to the possibility that the Democrats will win. I know our country can NOT continue its downward spiral under their agenda of redistribution of wealth and throwing other people’s money at every problem that comes down the pike. And letting in thousands of refugees when we have homeless veterans on our streets makes me sick – literally sick. Our vets deserve the best America has… ugh. Respect the veterans still living!
So today we will pray a prayer asking God for clear thinking and wisdom. I really need it, don’t you?
Dear Heavenly Father, We have read Your Holy Bible and we know right from wrong as we live our own lives; however, as we quickly approach November, we really need to think clearly with wisdom straight from You. We don’t pretend to know these candidate’s hearts, values or motives. All we can do is look at their past record of behavior. We hunger and thirst for decency, morals, backbone, and sincere integrity. Anyone can stand before a group of Christians and read a prepared speech filled with ear-tickling phrases that are specially written to persuade them to vote in their favor. Lord, only You know who needs to be our next President. We ask that You would please guide us as we decide who to vote for, or whether to vote at all. Wisdom from You is the greatest tool in a Christian’s toolbox. We need fresh wisdom, clear thinking, discernment, and conviction that we’re doing the right thing on election day. We ask all of this in the precious and matchless Name of Jesus, Amen.
At this point I do want to remind you (and me too) that no matter who the President is, Jesus Christ is the KING! As Lucinda and I chat, we are encouraged by those words, we hope you are too! The Lord wants us to put HOLES in the Darkness! We’re in the last days, I believe. We know things will get more challenging, but we also know that God will protect us!
