After the loss

I was praying earlier today and asked God about tonight's election. He told me no, we would not win. I was hoping that was my negative mind and not Him. Now it doesn't really matter because we did lose.

I just now cried out to Him why!!! He said that He has better plans for us.

Do I know what they are? No. Is He talking about America or His followers or both? I don't know.

Tonight I am as depressed as one can be who believes that our country has turned a corner away from it's origins of liberty and freedom. I am depressed that my fellow Americans are so clueless or selfish or uncaring to have not done what needed to be done about the current white house resident.

Is it the end of the world? Well not literally. Figuratively, that depends.

I keep reminding myself of what I told myself during this election season ever since Cain dropped out. That if we don't win with a moderate, that perhaps after our second time down this road, folks will finally wake up and realize that Reagan was right about pastels not working.

Of course, that's probably a pipe dream too but hey, I'm reaching for straws here.

We are Americans. We may get beaten down but we never stay down. We may have lost a major battle and may be really far down the socialist rabbit hole but we just don't have it in us to give up.

We will come back from this and we will find someone to lead us out of this sinkhole. Perhaps we need to examine what it is that is really important and finally find the courage and strength within each of us to to what we really need to do.

Not that I know what that is nor am I in the mood to find it tonight but as Scarlet says, tomorrow is another day.

All I do know is that God still sits on the throne and He is still in charge. No matter what happens, He will not leave us nor forsake us even if we do deserve it.

UPDATE: There are now stirrings that OH was called too early. I'm doing my best not to get my hopes up. I'm not sleepy at all and just now discovered I accidentally turned on my coffee pot so I just had to have a cup. Will this nightmare night ever end?

Elusively yours,
ilja

Me neither, HHM. I was pretty positive Mitt was going to pull this out somewhat easily. http://i147.photobuc.../sadsadsigh.gif

One day we will know why.

I did not see this coming. I just don't see how any American can vote for him again. With his destruction of our foreign policy, distancing our allies, destroying our economy, and his COMPLETE disdain for the Constitution. I can understand him winning the first time. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me." This time, those that voted for them are not my brethren, they're not my countrymen!

Thank you, ilja, for saying what I'm thinking.
I'm sad, I have a headache, and I need to get some sleep.

Goodnight, all!

I hope that as I sleep, I won't have nightmares about what Obamacare might do to the career my 46 year-old husband will be starting in a year and a half. Laid off from his manufacturing management job in 2008 (he has an MBA), he went back to school to become a pharmacist (graduating in mid-2014). We all know about how smart it is to choose a healthcare profession, right? What about after Obamacare kicks in?
We've used our savings, our equity (had to sell, of course--in 2009--haha!), his 401K. We've sold our belongings. We live with family. Daughter going to college next year? We keep trying to do the right things, and we keep getting kicked in the teeth. Tonight was a blow.

There really are no excuses this time. They simply chose to believe a liar who tickled their ears.

I had one weak drink last night. Since I had to get up this morning which now that I think about it, is a good thing since I currently still have a job (so far), it's a good thing I did not go buy that bottle of Jack I was thinking about last night.

Edited to apologize for that sentence structure. Unfortunately, I'm too pooped and depressed to do more than add this disclaimer.

This is as much for me as anybody else. I just had to say what was on my mind and hopefully reach out for the help from above which is the only place where we do not stand on sifting sand but on a firm foundation. He is good and He will get us through this.

2 Chronicles 7:14
King James Version (KJV)

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I definitely understand what you mean about being in the wrong profession. http://i147.photobuc.../sadsadsigh.gif

As I went to bed last night I reminded myself that it's not my will but God's will that needs to be done. I had really hoped his plan for this world didn't include a second Obama term but evidently it did.

Thanks for the reminder. It's not about me but about Him. He knows what He's doing even when I don't understand.

No words can describe my abject and utter disappointment today. I truly believed this would work out much differently than it did. Another term, unfettered by re-election, unencumbered by any media holding him accountable, and arrogant enough to do whatever he please to usurp the Constitution, Obama is the most dangerous man in the world today, but not OUR enemies, just to his subjects.

Ilja,

I saw this coming too. In my heart I had dared to hope, but God was whispering something different in my soul. To be honest, can an immoral people elect anything other than an immoral government? We have become a nation of entertainment lifestyles, TV’s, movies, gaming and gossip; what else was there for us to reap? For decades we have dumbed down our schools (heck even way back when I was in school they taught to the lowest common denominator) and pursued relative truth and now it is simply following through with its conclusion.

God has always been in control and always will be, the future may be painful and we may not like it, but He has put it in front of us for a reason. As the wheat falls away from the chaff, so now will those whom He has called. Wipe your tears and take His hand, for the day before you is hard and you cannot walk it on your own. One day His glory will outshine all that has been and this will seem as if it was only a dream.

I was a chicken...did not watch TV or the returns last night. I live in New Mexico and am surrounded by the 51% who pick my pocket every day. I work 9-10 hours a day & pay my bills promptly. My property taxes are raised $150-200 every year, but I'm not seeing any benefits from those increases. :hairpull:

It's time to move out of New Mexico to where my husband & I can live amongst other hard workers rather than the leaches.

My heart is bruised but not broken. Once my hurt is over, the anger will start smoldering and I will take action to protect me-n-mine. I am a native born Texan and I think it is past time to move back to my home state.

Thanks, ilja. When trials come I need to remember that God still loves me. And more importantly, that I still love Him.

I am looking for a quote for you, ilja. If I find it--I'll be back.

Thanks to the rest of you who posted. Your words were quite encouraging. I'm sorry not to respond to each of you but after not getting much sleep last night, this ole' body is ready to call it a night. :)

Ilja, I don't generally post about things like this, but since others I respect have done so, at least I'm in excellent company, and always so responding to you. :)

There are four sentences in The Bible that have helped me make sense of this election.

1. "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and unto God that which is God's".

The message is clearly that while we are busy with, and often consumed by, the Earthly affairs of our existence here, we of the Judeo-Christian beliefs submit our will and our souls to a higher power.

We have trials and tribulations here, and believe there is a plan that directs the affairs of His creations. So, we do the best we can, but always remember we are His, and our souls look to Heaven for enternal understanding.

2. "In all things give thanks".

This is a tough one, especially under the circumstances. In fact, I have a difficult time with this - especially when disaster strikes in the form of an election or a hurricane or the death of a family. I'm learning, but it's a more difficult set of lessons. I just know that it's true, and the right thing to do.

3. "The Lord's Prayer", where it says, "Thy Kingdom come, They will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven."

For quite some time, I prayed that Mitt Romney would win, and for all the right reasons. (I believe Barack Obama is evil - to say the least.)

But, the morning of Election Day, I gave my best case to God about why Mitt Romney should win, but asked that God's will be done....(and I just really hoped it would allow Romney to enjoy victory).

So, if it's God's will that we endure Obama for a time longer, I'm not going to second-guess Him....although I haven't a clue how that works for good. And, that's the last verse:

4. "All things work together for good...to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose".

I just don't see it yet, but I have faith that it's true, and I'll see it at some point. :)

ilja's Corny Corner

A Doctor, A Lawyer, A Little Boy And A Priest
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and then he bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

John Mauldin relates the details of a conversation he had with John Boehner, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

At the :50 Maudlin describes Boehner telling him that Obama has,

If that is true, why do we see Boehner continually backing down and rolling over while Obama stands firm and never compromises?

NEVER FORGET!

Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin’s long road home ended Saturday in a blaze of yellow ribbons, the silent tribute of people who lined the roads, and the respect of thousands more who filed past his coffin at a public visitation . . . “If four people showed up, that’s OK with me,” said Keith Maupin, the soldier’s father, as he took a mid-afternoon break outside the Civic Center, where many came up to him to shake his hand or give him a hug . . . Matt Maupin became the face of the war in Iraq for thousands here and across the country in April 2004, when an Arab TV station aired a tape showing the Union Township soldier kneeling and surrounded by masked men carrying automatic rifles . . .Four years and millions of prayers later, a tip from an Iraqi citizen led U.S. soldiers to the farm area northwest of Baghdad where Matt Maupin’s remains were found on March 20 . . .Scoutmaster David Bacon said the boys of Troop 511 had been well aware of the story of Matt Maupin and wanted to pay their own tribute.“I’ve talked to them many times about Matt,” said Bacon, whose cousin, Lance Cpl. David Kreuter, was killed in Iraq in 2005. “They understand it was the sacrifice of young men like Matt that gives us the freedom to meet every Monday night. There are places in the world where Boy Scouting is not allowed.” http://i147.photobuc.../3yqo3h0.gifPFC Keith Matthew MaupinCaptured in IraqApril 9, 2004

We Owe Them So Much

There's a young woman far from home, Serving U.S.A. with pride. Her every step is strong and sure, Courage in every stride. Courage in every stride. We pray You keep her safe, We pray You keep her strong, We pray You send her safely home ... For she's been away too long. For she's been away too long. Bless those who wait their safe return. Bless those who mourn the lost. Bless those who serve this country well, Never mind the cost. Never mind the cost. God, Bless America!

An Email From God?

I got this in an email today and though it doesn't say who wrote it, I don't doubt these things could have happened.'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL' You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I. I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK..I am ready to go.' I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night. I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said. 'Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.' I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered. I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them. I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan ... I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor. Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there. I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are 'ready to go.' I will be in the stairwell of your final moments. God http://i147.photobuc...3/knowjesus.gif
