Tonight was an important moment in History. The first African American was voted President Of The United States- Barack Obama. He is a good man and I feel that he will do a good job. But we live in a truly troubled time. As I was pondering this thought, this moment in time, I can't help but going back to the God of the Universe and finding peace in knowing that He is the one leading this country...this world. My life is really in HIS hands. It is by His hands that all things were created and by His hands that all things will come to an end unless we follow His son, Jesus Christ and the plan of salvation. I just read this quote and felt it was appropriate for a night like tonight. It is truly a charge for all of us to stand for something and to remember who we are.

“We live in a great and evil day. Never have the powers of darkness, evil and perversion covered the earth as they do in this generation. This is a season in the Lord’s affairs that the greatest generation of men and women in the history of the world is being called forth. Our work is at hand. It is not a time for cowardice or compromise nor is it a time to indulge or live an undisciplined life. It is a time to rally to the banner of our Master, to declare with unwavering allegiance our loyalty to His great cause. It is a time to be noble and pure, to live lives disciplined like no other generation. It is a season for a “Spartan” life, a “committed” life, a “conquering” life.

This generation of men and women are going to accomplish the seemingly impossible because you are on His errand. Your generation will fight the greatest army of satanic hosts ever assembled. You will be severely outnumbered. You will need a deep and abiding faith in Christ to survive—and you will survive. The Lord and His servants will triumph, we do know that.”
