Why Should Jesus Love Me?

Here is a Prayer on Voting Day....

The election is tomorrow, Lord,
and I was wondering: if you were a candidate
- would you be elected?
I know if you were running for office, Lord,
you’d campaign with open and transparent honesty:
no need for fact-checking your statements and press releases!
Your campaign promises would be many:
life for those who respect and reverence it;
peace for those who work for it;
justice for the oppressed;
pardon for those who freely forgive;
opportunity and work for all who seek it;
casting the mighty from their thrones
and filling the hungry with good things…
Your platform would be flawless:
laws rooted in truth;
freedom bound by responsibility;
and justice tempered with mercy…
Your policies would be grounded
in an unapologetic preference and care
for the defenseless innocent:
for those waiting to be born and their mothers;
for the sick and the elderly;
for the poor, the marginalized, the refugee and the stranger;
and for victims of power, arrogance and greed…
But I know your name won’t be on the ballot, Lord,
so I ask you to be with me as I study the candidates
and their policies, platforms and promises
- and decide for whom I’ll cast my vote…

Open my mind to all sides of the issues
lest I vote uninformed on matters of poverty and prosperity,
peace and war, life and death, rights and responsibilities…
Help me see through the ads and the hype
lest I vote on the basis of looks and appearances,
polls and campaign promises…
Give me counsel to choose wisely
when the choices fail to offer what I seek and expect
of those who might govern your people…
Make me a discerning disciple, Lord:
empower me to cast my ballot
as my faith, intelligence, conscience
and the truth of your Word lead me to vote…
On the eve of the election I offer you my heart:
inscribe on it your word of truth
in letters gospel-wide and bold enough for me to clearly see…
I offer you my mind, Lord:
bathe my thoughts in wisdom ever ancient, ever new
and show me the path of your truth…
I offer you my will, Lord:
bend, shape, mold and nurture it
with the power of your grace and conform it
to your heart’s desire…
I offer you my vote, Lord:
may it be a good decision, may it speak a just word,
may it hasten your reign of peace
and bring life and liberty for all…
All this I pray, Lord,
and I ask in return the gift of your Spirit
to counsel, guide and enlighten me…
Amen.

James 5
7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
*********
"If one does not grow stronger with affliction, they will be like fruit which never ripens, nor is plucked from the tree, nor ever tasted... and therefore never becomes the reason it was even created fruit at all." IR
Blessings to you both my Friends, in His Love and Peace all ways!
[[[[[IRRIRA]]]]]

Good morning ( here ) and afternoon or evening to you my friend, well place scriptures that we preach about in the church very often but not only will that fruit not ripen but God has warned that that branch will be removed from him for not baring any fruit and will be gathered by men and burned, you can be in the physically among the saints and out of the church spiritually without even recognizing it.

Blessings sis.

<quoted text>You're just oversensitive. A lotta' people are. They're always on edge because their minds are programmed to think that others are always looking down on them.
While it is true that a lot of people can be oversensitive at times... especially if one intentionally pushes the wrong buttons... and sometimes they "drop-kick" the button instead of pushing it. So in this case, you were being insensitive. And we already know that you couldn't care less... but the "Lawd" does. We'll leave you in His hands.

I have skimmed just enough to have a general sense of some of what has been going on in here lately as far as the topic. Despite the differences between Thumper and I, a comment he made always stuck with me and that is that the Bible does not mention skin color. Surely if this mattered at all we would have seen something written about it. What we do see is love thy neighbor, do unto others, & judge in the manner you would have yourself judged. Annie posted about the parable of the Mustard Seed. Well there are things besides the Kingdom of God or faith that can start as a small seed and grow into something bigger and that is predjudice. I say that and not racism because it can also be gender, other faiths, social or economic status, etc,etc. Most do not start off hating, it is learned. So is love and so is fighting for what's right. Choose the right path and help others to do the same (they may have been misled by others) an find their voice cus there are no sidelines. unless our faith is lukewarm.(T) PEACE
You're right about love and everything... but Thumper was wrong about the skin color thing. The Bible does mention skin color or at the very least alludes to it... especially when referring to Ethiopians and I believe there is a place mentioned in song of Solomon about his lover.

Sorry, but the Washington Redskins lost yesterday so that means the incumbent will lose tomorrow.
I heard about that the other day and thought that was interesting. I'm not a fan of Obama's policies (abortion & gay marriage) or anything... so as a Christian, why would I vote for him? But I wouldn't rule him out either. He's slicker than Bill Clinton was.
