By Carol Cauble: Where Is Our Faith? or Fooled Again?
By Carol Cauble, Special to the Post
We seem to be placing ourselves at risk once again — with our presidential election voting. Using our God’s free will and choices in 2012, only God had the answer then — and now for our voting — we will realize that each time we feel we do not need God in our lives, we suffer. This time almost eight years later we have placed our democracy and freedom in danger of being changed. Remember the 9/11 disaster? During that time we began to see our need to have God in our lives again. We gradually slipped back to having our own way — replacing God with extreme choices of not only breaking all Constitutional laws but God’s laws for human rights. Even our government leaders are still breaking our laws awithout justice — Godly leadership has given way to abuse of all that was previously given us — strong democracy with respect for God’s laws and freedoms.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 tells us that: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.’ You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Without God and our country’s citizens, our presidential candidates will not be able to keep promises. Actions are always louder than words when you have the Holy Spirit as your support. God will always be greater, more powerful, in control, creator of this world, the only one who can answer our problems. Even beyond Donald Trump — and others.
The Sunday, Feb. 28 article by Dr. Betty Middleton was very informative concerning some of the information on Donald Trump, with books written by Clinton and Ted Cruz.
The part of Donald Trump’s story — he did not write “Never Enough” and “Pursuit of Success” by Michael D’Antonio — where the interesting part of these books stated that Donald Trump is a man whose appetite for wealth, attention, power and conquest is practically insatiable. Also stated by D”Antonio is that Trump was a product of the “ME” generation, and has developed a larger than life persona.
These statements reminded me of John Edward’s personality. Praying for all who will be voting, that you will consider God’s will for your choice — our younger generation needs our wisdom and understanding, and our love and support during these critical times of choice. We must ask ourselves do we trust in a new president that focuses on making business deals — and is accepting of many liberal issues that are hurting us now, and the many liberal people he agrees with?
As a Golden Age citizen, I have learned that the scriptures have all the answers for our serious decisions that affect us throughout our country and the world.
The presidential candidates work hard talking and making the promises they know we want to hear. It is felt that the American people are more than ready to see all these promise in action and with progress accomplished. Good actions are received with hope versus loud repetitive voices — we can be grateful that this campaign has acknowledged God “praising him” many times — along with the evangelical population taking a more serious part in their election — Praise God!
