Our Purpose

My last blog was July 7th. Since that time, I have prayed, discussed and pondered the current path our country is facing. Each day, I see more and more how my blog of the 7th is THE BEST I can do.

We as a country, in order to do our part to help save our freedoms as we watch them dwindle in front of our eyes (IF you are really paying attention) is to fall on our face before God, and pray for those who are leading our nation to it's demise, as well as those who are working hard to save us from an administration full of deceit and lies. The purpose of satan is to steal and destroy, divide and conquer, and turn us against one another.

I have taken the liberty to copy this, as I felt it was so appropriate to our concerns of today:

About this week's promise

Homespun wisdom says, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Although you won't find it put just that way in the Bible, you will find many stories of both effective and poor planning. The Bible teaches that God is a God of both purpose and planning. His purpose is to draw all humanity to himself in order to forgive and redeem. His plan—from Creation, to the Law, to the Prophets, to Jesus and the church—is what we are seeing when we read and study the Bible. Planning is part of all of our lives. The only question is if, in all our planning, we ever consult his perfect and eternal plan.

From the TouchPoint Bible
(Tyndale House) p 1243

Our purpose is to pray and follow God's guidance in our everyday living.
