First, let us pray for our country. We can love our president or hate him, but it is clear to me that republican and democrats alike are lacking in sound judgment and have lost their way. As a result, we find ourselves all in the same situation that was present in ancient Israel. They had no king. No true godly leader who was willing to take and move the nation into the right direction. Judges 21: 25 says, "In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes."

Right now, we have so many issues, gay marriage, gun control, border control, bombings, sexual immorality, drug problems, pedophiles, No jobs, No equal protection, and freedom of speech only if you say the right things, Christian's being treated as terrorists, and Terrorists treated as good Americans seeking tolerance.

Our nation is facing God's Judgment, and it is not going to be pretty. Droughts, tornadoes, hurricanes, massive snowfalls that cripple and kill, and heat that does the same. Our freedoms are lost, our values compromised. Each side is name-calling and no one is looking to God for the answerers.

I know I am preaching a bit, but I worry for the future of our children, and the golden years of our seniors. I am heartbroken at all of the stupid corruption I am seeing every day. Just yesterday, a school told a 3-year-old, deaf boy’s parents, that they were going to have to change the boy’s legal name because the approved, legal sign for his name looks too much like a gun.

My own family has had the last three of my grandchildren taken by CPS. Now, if CPS had a proven case it would be one thing, but they are making stuff up and no one can tell them they are wrong. Yet children are being slaughtered by the millions, in the name of women’s health, and everyone says it’s great. But don't step on that beetle, because it is endangered and we might upset the balance of nature, not to mention you will have to pay a hefty fine and spend the rest of your life in jail, meanwhile non Americans are allowed to receive the benefits of homes , food, and money, while those of us who live here legally are told we don't qualify for because we make too much money.

I am sad. Nevertheless, I know that my God is great, and that he has a plan. I thank God that our instructor and family rode out the storm safely. I am glad that I am still married to my wife of 26 years, and that I have 6 children and 5 healthy grandchildren even if I may never see some of them again the rest of their lives. I thank God that there are places I can still stand in line waiting for a box of food that I can at least feed my family for a day on. I thank God that for the moment, I can still go to church and worship my savior without being shot for doing so.

Now, please pray for max, and his mommy Amy. He was taken from her at birth because someone claimed she was on drugs, even though she is and has been clean.

Please pray for Zoe, whose mommy attacked her daddy and myself, putting holes in our walls and destroying the family structure all because she wanted to get high and try and kidnap her child, and who still does drugs.

Please pray for Spencer and Chynna. another child whose mother was taken from him because someone claimed she was on Meth at his birth, when she was not, and who at her age, fearing the system that failed her did not jump high enough through all of their hoops, and now Spencer lives thousands of miles away in Alaska. While his mother, my youngest daughter cries, yearning to hold her son in her arms once again.

Pray for my wife who has suffered from mental health problems for 13 years now. And who cries herself to sleep at night because of a world that labeled her a bad grandmother because a CPS worker broke into our home and falsely accused us of cruelties that never existed all because I told her to leave my home or deal with the sheriff’s office for breaking and entering.

And finally pray for me as I try to hold this family together in such a mixed up world where wrong is right, and doing the right thing can get you killed. I stood in line the other day for 30 minutes just to get a grocery bag of food to feed six people. By the time I got home, I could not even hold myself in an upright position from the pain running through my spine. 13 years I have lived without being able to work, 13 years without the benefit of government assistance even though I worked all my adult life and paid into their pockets. 13 years without being able to go for a walk without falling to the ground unable to take another step. 13 years without being able to hold my children in my arms unless someone else picked them up and placed them there while I was sitting down, and even then only for a short time.

I am not bitter or even angry. I am sad, and yet God promises in his word that if I do one thing, he will work all things for good. James chapter 1 verses 2-4 says "Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

So today, I am joyful, I praise the name of God, and His son Jesus. I praise the Holy Spirit who gives us comfort in times of need, and I thank all of you who read to this last word.
