Help For Uncertain Times
I rarely ever post about my dad on this blog. He has his own voice, and I have mine. While our respective voices are equally grounded in a commitment to the message of God's word, they often convey that message differently. We are comfortable with that, and it often leads us into some spirited but loving debates.
Today, however, I wanted to post a word from Dad that I think everyone in America needs to hear. It is entitled "Help for Uncertainty" and was released by our media ministry, Touching Lives. In this message, Dad calls us to rally behind, support and pray for President-elect Obama no matter how we voted in November. We are facing tough times, not as Democrats and Republicans, but as Americans and, for some, as Christians. As Dad says, when times are tough God is asking us, "Do you trust me or not?" This is a wake-up call. Do we really trust Him? If we do, we need to decrease our fear by increasing our faith in God. That is truly a message of hope for these uncertain times.
What do you think our message should be in the midst of this crisis?
