The Call

A fire was ignited on Saturday at The Call. It is the fire of God’s Spirit and the cry of Christians pleading for mercy for our nation and repentance from our evil ways. My heart broke as thousands of Christians gather to pray for the sanctity of marriage to be preserved, for lives of the unborn children to be saved, and for our nation to turn back to God! I was encouraged, humbled and challenged to go deeper with God. God had been challenging me these few months with my time and affections. Life can easily take over if you don’t stop and make a conscious effort to go to God. We can make all the excuses….busyness, tiredness, illness, tv, etc. At one point that day, there was a pastor who shared about addictions and addictions doesn’t necessarily have to be alcohol, pornography but it can be anything that can take your affections away from God. God wants all of our affections and the pastor had challenged us to look at our lives and to seek God on the areas that we have not given Him our affection. For me, it was tv. I know it may seem silly but it is true. When I come home from a long day of work, my escape was to turn on the tv. It started with a few shows and with DVR, the list of shows began to grow and grow to where I would find myself spending evening after evening in front of the tv filling my soul with junk and many times staying up late to watch a show. That day, I determined in my heart to not continue this and told God that once I got home that I would delete the shows that did not glorify Him, which was the majority of them. That night I did and I felt so liberated! I want to be filled with hope, joy, faith and love and that only comes from God and His word! I want to have my will be His will in my life. I want to DO as it says in Mark 12:30

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

As the election is tomorrow, I am praying for God’s hand of mercy to fall on our city, state and nation! My faith is in a HOLY and RIGHTEOUS GOD and I know that He will never leave nor forsake His children!! America will always be “ONE NATION UNDER GOD!”
