THANKFUL THURSDAY...the REAL issue

Many of you probably sat down and watched the Presidential debate tonight. I asked my husband who he thought won, he didn't really have an answer to that question. I don't know if there are really any winners of debates, after all election time only means that candidates try their best to identify what our problems are and then they try to convince us that they hold the key to the solution.

Debates can't really identify how good candidates can solve problems, debates only determine who can talk the smoothest. Truth be told, most candidates don't really know what the real issues are or even how to resolve them.

Only One Person can do that. God has already identified what the real issue is. And He has also given us the solution.

The issue? Mankind is lost. The solution? Accepting God's love and forgiveness

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so WHOSOEVER believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." -John 3:16

There's no debate about it...God desires for ALL to come to know Him and that my friend is the REAL issue at hand. Let's pray for our politicians. For our country. And for the lost.

May God surely BLESS the good ole USA!

Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY and I am glad that you joined us. I will be hosting TT this month and I am looking forward to hearing what is on your grateful heart! Join us by linking up below.

That's gotta be one of the toughest things for me to WANT to remember ~ praying for my country's leaders. It's so much easier to complain about them, criticize them, and just vote for someone else next time 'round. Thanks for this reminder.

thank you for posting this this morning......the Lord has spoken to me about the state of this country and how we must pray and pray and not fall for the lies of the enemy. We must stay the course and keep focused on Jesus and in Him alone. He who began a good work in us will carry it to completion! (Phil 1:6)
God bless you and God bless the good ole USA!

Preach it girl! That is so true and I so agree. I watched the debates and got a headache. It was in my opinion ridiculous. The moderator had NO control, the candidates always went past their times and interrupted each other. It was awful and we need to pray and put Jesus on the throne where He belongs in our lives.

AMEN!!! I'm so glad my faith does not depend on the political climate. God is in control, even of the elections.
