I know Veteran’s Day is over,
but I published Friday’s post without mentioning the fact that
I appreciate all that our service men and women do for our freedoms.
If you are a veteran or a veteran’s spouse, parent, or child,
you have seen the sacrifice they make (or made) first-hand.
And, you sacrifice(d)as well. So, thank you!
I hope you’ll forgive me for thanking you late.
You know the old saying about ignoring the elephant in the room. Of course you do. Well, who CAN ignore something so big and powerful?
As a nation, we’ve never been so divisive. In my opinion, it centers around the fact that many people try to exclude God from involvement or acknowledgement in their lives.
God IS the elephant in the room.
Imagine a real elephant standing in your living room. Everyone ignoring its presence wouldn’t change the fact that it’s there. And in the way!
God fills a room, except He’s not in the way. He’s never obtrusive or pushy, either.
No matter how much people ignore Him, it doesn’t change the fact that He’s there. Right there. In their midst. In our midst.
He wants to fill us (and our rooms) with His love and His peace – and joy in Him.
Imagine how He fills our rooms with such hope! God’s children, who are those that believe in Him and obey His word, are filled with His Holy Spirit. So, the rooms of our hearts are full of His goodness.
No matter how hard people try, our nation will never remove the Lord from our hearts, our rooms, and our land.
Let’s sing His songs today! 🙂
