Be careful what you wish for.

Be careful what you wish for... you just may get it !
As I was driving my Dodge Ram truck back from Antioch, IL, to buy some healing herbs [I consider myself an herbalist], right across the border of Southern WI., I was listening to 107.7 FM- WVCY- Christian radio from Milwaukee, and the man was talking about people now days and the election and voting for the 'Far Left Dem.....Bozo' and what if they did elect him... who some think would help to make things so extreme liberal and Left, including promoting abortion, the powerful Gay agenda, weakening of our States Rights and Military, etc, more so that people are wondering if the name "Jesus" will actually be illegal to say in public ... LOL ! And cross-dressing people of the opposite gender will be able to go into the ladies rest rooms and molest, etc. You know-- people just may get their wish and I wonder just how long/ far God will let things go before He steps in. I always loved to read and study History, Geography, Sociology and the Bible, and if you read your History and Bible --everything just keeps repeating itself from back in the days of 1st Samuel [OT] on ward, how God's chosen people had so many chances to live right and correct themselves after God's many warnings but instead consistently chose to go their own selfish, rotten way and worship false pagan gods -- and then reap whirlwinds of punishment and all kinds of damage from the God of Israel.
But we can't look back and judge the Israelite s 4000 years ago without also looking and comparing America and the rest of the world now days.
Go Figure-- do we really want a Socialist country like much of Europe ?? The Gov't gives YOU what they THINK is best for the country and YOU have to live with it! If the Gov't takes control of the banks and parts of Wall Street-- just how far will Gov't ownership and take overs go?? How about Eminent domain abuse? Our founding fathers knew that it was not good to give the Federal Gov't TOO MUCH CONTROL, [thus the 2nd Amendment for States and people to PROTECT their RIGHTS and bear Arms!] and that's just about the time we lose all of our hard won FREEDOMS listed and "guarenteed" in our U.S. Constitution, including the 1st and 2nd Amendments, etc. ~!
Most of the "PROTECTED" people in the U.S. have not been over seas to visit Socialist countries who don't have freedoms like us --as most combat Veterans have. First of all, there would not be any homosexuals around if we were an Islamic Republic... LOL.. hello! And the liberal-Lefty Democatic women in the U.S.A. like Nancy Polosi , Barbara Boxer, and Sen. Hillary Clinton would just love it when their hubbies beat them with a stout stick or club when they burned the dinner or didn't show proper respect...etc, LOL! Woo Woo! Back to the 15th Century... yes! But ususally, women faired much better in Free, Christian nations...
Most biblical Christians know that many times God DOESN'T give us what we ask or pray for-- and for good reason, HE LOVES US ! Hey! I was stubborn, selfish, ignorant and wild in my youth because I was not raised with or taught the Bible... before I saw the light of the bible, changed my evil ways, repented and accepted Jesus Christ as my PERSONAL SAVIOUR, and finally matured. But you know what-- some people will NEVER grow up, find Christian maturity, and will end up in hell forever, for their indifference, prideful, stupid, selfish, greedy attitudes. It's NOT about being "good or bad" --- it's about accepting Jesus as Saviour-- or NOT! They will get their wish alright and it will be too late to change their minds or repent. Heaven and hell are forever-- and ne'er the 'twain shall meet.
The more I study my bible [most any version-- but I prefer the KJV or the NASB] and attend a bible teaching church on a regular basis with my wife -- the more I realize what God wants for me, as the 'model prayer' in Matt. 6:9 says, "...let YOUR Kingdom come and YOUR Will be done on earth as it is in heaven." He does not want me to get into more debt $$$ or spend more than I earn. Yes, it's God's Kingdom and God's game plan, so who are we small, puny humans to tell/ demand or wish for anything opposite of God's intentions and Will ?? It's not just the IGNORANCE of PEOPLE-- BUT THE ARROGANCE OF THEM, that make me shudder and quake. They have no fear or shame.
If you all feel the need to pray for something that is not material, pray for the Fruits of the [Holy] Spirit, in Galatians 5:22, 'love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, self-control, etc.... I often pray for humility... and the Lord has chastised me many times for the lack there of... Ouch!
And as for wisdom to make the right choice in voting for some one [although many times is boils down to the 'lesser of two evils'] -- the Bible is the best place to look for WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
And be careful what you wish for --- you just may get 'what you want.'

good post Tom; I have a verse I'll try to remember to send later that I read today; you know we keep saying for God to bless America, but I don't know why he should; we dishonor him all the time; events unfolding could be the beginning of America not being the great country we once were when our founding fathers had a bigger faith than nowadays

Kudos Soldier! I loved this one. I have to always remember that God loves me the way I love my children, and I very rarely if EVER give my children everything they ask for. Our forefathers were men of great faith and knew what would be important for our country. A faith unseen, unproven but stronger than any man, and the ability to use "tough love" when necessary. Thanks for your comment on my journal. Check out Mark's for pictures and videos of our goings on here in little Ohio! Sue
