I bet you have personal hopes and dreams
Unless you live under a tyrannical government, in slavery, you’re probably pursuing your hopes and dreams. And I hope yours are not totally self-centered. In other words, I hope you’re looking for a way to serve others. Because serving yourself is an exercise in futility. You’ll never satisfy your selfish desires. But you can serve others and achieve satisfaction only surpassed by eternal life in Heaven.
Why am I bringing up individual pursuits today?
Because America is in that awful “election season” cycle again. And I’m seeing rhetoric of all colors, shapes, and sizes bandied around the internet. Sometimes peacefully. Other times forcefully. But almost all times selfishly.
At least 90% (and that might be too conservative a number) of all political opinions are selfish. Probably a big part of that number falls under the heading of “good intentions.” But, as I recall, there’s a road, somewhere, paved with those. And by “selfish” opinions, I mean forgetting what God says on the subject of government. And focusing on R vs D.
I wish Democracy was a good solution. Because America, the land of my birth…and the land I love…identifies as one. But it’s a horrible solution. The right to vote is a HUGE reason for the exponential rise of crimes, hate, and sin. Selfishness influences voting. And that leads to voting for candidates who promise what they can only steal from taxpayers. Then, the downward spiral feeds on itself.
So, we’re doomed. And there’s no way out.
There IS a way. But so few choose it. So, the doomsday prophecy is most likely true. Thankfully not for me. And I pray you can say the same thing. But it’s crucial to know and understand where the key to the gate out of this place is. It’s not in the hands of anyone who’s running for president. Not in the hands of a democratic system. And certainly not in the hands of the masses who’d just as soon omit God from every section of life.
You can hold the key out of here in your heart. It’s in a word. THE word. But don’t wait too long to or you’ll give up your…
Hopes and dreams and honey sunbeams
And blue sky butterfly thoughts,
Musical notes shine in your heart like
Gossamer, gold polka dots.
I wish life was filled with those things,
And void of self-centered screams.
But since it’s not I’m thankful God
Still reigns in my hopes and dreams.
