There are some early mornings where I sit quietly in my office and just just stare at the wall or my bookshelf and reflect on how blessed that I am, my family is and our country is. Well this morning was one of those mornings where I just simply stared at my bookshelf and every once and awhile I will just look at all the books on my shelf for some inspiration which to write about. As I was glancing down the many titles and genres of books… my eyes became fixated on this book entitled “A Man of Faith.”
I took this particular book off the shelf and began to read through the pages of a book about a young Texas Governor whose gubernatorial leadership was based on his strong faith. I began to read through the pages about his relationships, friendships and counsel he sought from all types of Godly spiritual leaders. I reflected on his claim to fame as the Texas Governor being his faith-based initiatives and how he obtained the title of being a compassionate conservative.
As I sit here right now there is a much different scenario, situations have happened and this man sits in the white-house with an abismal approval rating and many people whom downright despise him… how times have changed. By no means is this a “political post;” however God did speak to my heart to share that our President is A Man of Faith, has a family, has challenges, has feelings, seeks God, falls short… and inspite of all that, he is the leader of our country. The same thing will be true for the new leaders that we elect in 34 days and let us always be mindful of this verse in Romans:
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1
Through all of the political rhetoric and nonsense; let’s seriously pray for our leaders on both sides of the isle!
