A New Pledge

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the Divided States of America, and to the Republic for which it used to stand, one Nation that desperately needs to return to God, divisible, with Liberty and Justice for few.
It should surprise no one that I am completely and utterly dejected at the results of our election, and heartsick at the direction our country continues to head.  All I know is that God is in control, He helped us survive the past four years and I pray for His protection over all His people.  And I hold onto the truth of Galatians 6:7-8:

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

At least every day is now one day closer to the time when Obama will be out of office.  2016 can’t come soon enough.

    If I had a blog, I would have posted almost all the same words. I too, am heart broken. What does this election say about those who call themselves Christian? What has happened to Americans? God forgive us.

    It’s a sad day, for sure. I love your post and totally agree.

  3. Great post. I 100% agree. It is a sad day but you are right in pointing out that this is what our country has sown so it should not be a surprise that this is what we are reaping. Our fellow Americans may have made a mistake out of ignorance the first time they elected Obama, but they elected him this time with their eyes wide open. Hand outs and vague, touchy-feely emotionalism trumps honoring God and, in fact, trumps common logic or good sense. It’s not that Romney was so wonderful. He would not have been my first choice (or second), but he would have given us at least a CHANCE of cleaning up this mess. I have decided to be at peace about it and just give it over to God. When things get this bad, there is nothing else to do. God often drives us to Himself by giving us a situation in which we have no other choice but to “give up” and let Him wholly shoulder the burden. We aren’t supposed to feel comfortable or “at home” in this world anyway. This just clarifies things for us.
