A Shutdown to Show Out

Right now, our country is bleeding from the inside out. We are in the midst of the longest governmental shutdown in history. That means over 800 thousand families have not been paid what they are owed. Their first pay day of the year was non-existent. And this is all over an idea from a man who doesn’t give a damn about anybody else but himself. I am just flabbergasted at the lack of respect for human decency this president continues to exhibit.

He has put so many lives at stake over a wall that he knows will not give the American what he promises. A wall will not stop drugs from coming in people. You know why, because it is big business here even though most of it is illegal. A wall will not stop refugees from trying to cross over to find solace in a land that offers hope. You know why, because the audacity to hope is more powerful than fear. I could go on and on but bottom line there ain’t gon be no damn wall. (Got me cussing)

What do you think will happen to those families who are going hungry right now? Eventually somebody somewhere is going to panic and there will be crimes committed just to feed their hungry children. But you know what, there is still hope. Yes, there is. Now is the opportune time for the people of God, true believers to step out of the shadows, come out of the closet, and get to work. We need to make sure not a day goes by that our neighbors and friends are not lacking. The Bible says that If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14. That puts us, Christians, on notice.

We have the power of the tongue to bring down the stronghold that this president’s menacing ways have been killing the soul of our country. I’m not going to argue with anyone about this. We have a monster at the helm and his antics are a disgrace to our nation. But we who are believers and understand that we must got to God in prayer over this situation and state of the union have the power to change the atmosphere and allow God to show up and show out. I am just that confident that when we pick up the slack for our brothers and sisters, the nature of the beast will be defeated and God will be glorified.
