I didn’t wear red today: and I didn’t wear blue either!

When I woke up this morning I, like probably most Americans, checked the election results.

I got dressed for work just like I did yesterday.

I didn’t put on a red shirt… I didn’t put on a blue shirt.

I put on the full armor of God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 says:

(Message translation)

“God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the devil and all his angels. Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on y9our own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.”

I’ve learned a few things recently:

  1. The peace, faith, salvation, and word of the Lord will be more useful to you than any elected official.
  2. A good retinol serum will seriously diminish deep forehead wrinkles.
  3. I am not red, nor am I blue. I am a child of the most high King and will only look to him for provision of me and my family.
  4. No government or political party died on the cross for me.
  5. Praising the Lord in the midst of mess confuses the enemy.
  6. Jo Jo Siwa’s music should be banned from the U.S. #overit
  7. A pandemic does not scare me, elections do not hold me captivated by fear, the future of America will not cause me to worry
  8. Stop waiting for Friday; Mondays are beautiful!
  9. In the end God wins it all!!!
  10. let your focus be on above and not on what is in front of you
