Amen and amen, Mr. Piper. I wanted to cry as I watched this video. And I wanted to cry when I watched it the second time. But I was with the Hubs and my mom… and it’s not that I’m afraid to cry in front of them but the kind of cry that this video makes me want to cry is the ugly, sad kind of cry that you only want to do in private. The kind of cry that you cry when you are so sorrowful over something and you are pleading with God to change it. Oh, God will you change it? Change the heart of our nation, for Your glory.
I wanted to tell you about a sweet give-a-way that The Preachers Wife is having over at her place. She is giving away 5 copies of John Piper’s book, Spectacular Sins : And Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ. So hop on over to this post and enter yourself to win a copy. I’m a huge fan of Piper and would love to have this book. I’m sure it will enter our library one day even if I don’t win it though! You’ve got until November 7th to enter!
And if you do enter tell her I sent you! 🙂
Now, I’ve got some fantastic links for you!
Since election day is drawing near (thank goodness!), I’m sure we’re all wondering who the next President of the US will be. Well, John Piper writes a fantastic article on Christians and voting. I’ll let you go read it for yourself (if you do let me know what you thought). I’ve heard many people talk about being worried about this or that. But as Christians, let’s all remember Who holds everything in place. Psalm 20:7- “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”
Next… I’ve spoken many times about my passion for all things pro-life. I came across this blog post by Randy Alcorn a few days ago when reading Kelly’s (Love Well) blog (she had it listed in her sidebar). I’m a huge fan of Randy Alcorn and his position on prolife and abortion issues. It’s a great article on prolife issues and the election. He answers this question: As a Christian, should we vote for who we think should lead our country solely based on their stance on abortion? And again, if you check it out.. let me know what you think!
Have a blessed and safe day!
I was just shocked when I clicked on this website! And then to read that they raised $75,000 at last years event, with a goal of $100,000 this year (and this is just ONE state)! Please pray with me that Planned Parenthood is stopped!!!
Go here to help stop Planned Parenthood tax funding!
13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
