This. Please read this especially for those who get tax returns. This may be your last year getting it for a while. Make a plan that is not contingent on what the government will do.
Please. Self proclaimed patriots dealing with things minorities have dealt with for my whole life are willing to destroy everything via threats, violence, and subterfuge because they didn't get their way. Imagine if every athlete that felt like he got fouled assaulted the red and charged the AD's office. Or every Marine/soldier destroyed the barracks and/or refused to follow orders because he/she felt like they received unfair treatment. Do we really believe EVERY court official in different states woke up and held a meeting saying, "How can I pervert justice? How can I intentionally risk my whole career and go against the principles that have governed my personal and professional, public and private life?" Including the ones appointed by the person crying foul?
I implore everyone to take 3 days and not react, not act out, not demonize people who may not share your viewpoint...but instead breathe, breathe deeply. And look at WHO God has blessed you with: The son who has his first crush, the daughter who wants to spend time with you, the spouse who enjoys just being in your presence, the grandchild who still laughs at peek-a-boo, -ALL of these things are accompanied by peace and love. Not rage, not anger, not destruction, not unforgiveness. Peace, and LOVE.
If you want to see change, BE change. Run for office. Learn the rules of political engagement.
You can be in office by 2022 affecting change directly.
Because I understand being dismissed, lied on, being overlooked, and treated as a second class citizen, I will not tell anyone:
She should of just complied
If you do not like it leave
There is a time and a place to protest
You are a degenerate, deplorable, etc.
Pull yourself up by your bootstrap
Get over it, that election was in the past
Run them over
Shoot them all
You are a waste of air
They drank the Look Aid
If they voted for Biden/Trump, you have set yourself against the Lord and His Anointed
Or any of the biting and devouring words Americans have increasing uttered over the past 12 years. Words have created reality and contempt undermines even the most passionate of prayers. We are sitting and living in what our collective words have created.
The good book says, pray for peace in the land you live in (Jer. 29) and if My people who are called by MY Name, will humble themselves, pray, seek MY face, turn from their wicked ways, then I will HEAR, FORGIVE and HEAL. That 2ND Chronicles is a four-parter. It requires all four components to activate that promise. Or as the video gamers would say, to unlock that move.
Lastly, for those who are laughing at Trump, Patriots, Republicans, protestors, or any who may appear to be on the losing side of this election: You are mirroring the very poor and counterproductive behavior that was appalling and 'poor form' fours years ago when Trump was declared the winner. Two wrongs do not make a right and fighting fire with fire only leaves a pile of ashes.
May this post help you prepare for and create your 2021.
This post (above) was written in response to a repost by David Noble on Facebook: His repost was: You graduate college with 100k in debt, people clap and cheer for you.
You get married and spend between 5-50k for one day, people will clap and cheer for you.
You take a 200k loan from the bank to buy your first house, people will clap and cheer for you.
You take a loan for 40k for a car (a depreciating asset) with an interest rate, people will clap and cheer for you.
Thats 500,000 in total debt that MOST people are living in, and somehow they are feeling good about it because people are congratulating them for it.
Now, go and tell those same people you spent a few hundred dollars to start your own business......
“Are you sure?”
“What if it doesn’t work?”
“Can you get your money back?”
“What if people laugh at you?”
Picture a bucket full of crabs with no lids. The moment a crab tries to get out, the other crabs will literally rip its legs off.
This year, pay attention to who you’re surrounding yourself with and who’s speaking into your life.
