Gosh, the last two years I have been calling Congress, Senators, going to Tea Parties, Went to DC many times, Town Halls, Blogs and web sites trying to defend and preserve our freedom and liberty. I have been feeling pretty good until the HCR bill. I remember driving back from DC feeling exhausted and actually named the photo folder "last day of freedom". However, then a few days later it passed I was a tad down then bounced back. Then it has been one bill after another and one setback after another. I seem to be running out of energy... praying, fasting, family, work and then helping to preserve freedom in my spare time. People, I need some positives right now and some encouragement as I am feeling very discouraged. We have been praying daily for this country, but it seems to get worse at breakneck speeds. Please, what do you do to keep focused and not discouraged. What positives do you all see?
I see NOVEMBER!
You can still buy guns and ammo, for now.
The positive is that the vast majority are as disillusioned as you. November is coming.
Stay focused on, at max, TWO issues. You can preserve your energy that way.
Stay strong and trust the Lord.
More people are waking up to the threat that is Islam.
Obama's approval is falling off the table.
The lights are still on and if we act we can keep it that way.
Amen. Don't forget to train with them.
I’m positive things are screwed up...
Texas and many other states are in revolt. The people are in revolt.
It is looking good for November.
In November, Obama’s agenda stops.
We gut the health care and financial reform. This will take time, but...it will happen.
Take a day and rest in the Lord. How long has it been since you have seriously taken a Sabbath? Keep it Holy by doing nothing. No work. No thoughts of work. No worries that you have to get things done. Just rest in the Lord. You will feel refreshed and can get on with what you need to do.
You are a believer. Just remind yourself of what happened in Matthew 28 when you start getting down.
Its the 5th of August, 2010 and you still have breath in your body.
First of all, if you are in it for the long haul, you will be able to handle setbacks more easily. If you are not, things can look very discouraging.
The ones I worry about on our side are the people who rush from a doomsday perspective to a “I have hope now because ____ is running for president” perspective.
America is great because we have a type of government with checks and balances.
Yes we need to be vigilant. But we also have to realize that the farther the pendulum is pushed to the left, the more momentum it has when it swings back our way.
And hopefully, we can time that swing for the first Tuesday in November!
Anyway, just my perspective.
Obama reaches 50% disapproval in Real Clear Politics polling average for first time.
Take some RR, soldier. Come back to the fight refreshed. This is a long war. Pace yourself.
FR is still alive and well. Sounds trivial but I have found reading posts and pings/mail from other like-minded individuals is somehow strengthening. Before FR, I thought I was one of only a few who thought the way I did. Maybe the saying, “There is strength in numbers” isn’t just a saying. Just a thought
There was a political earthquake on tuesday. In Mo it was a clear rejection of Obamacare, In Michigan it was a hard right turn in congressional politics.
Matthew 28:17 “When they saw him, they worshiped himbut some of them doubted!.......And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
