Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

1 Kings 18:21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing.

Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the Lord.

            This double dose of scripture is brought to you out of a growing sense of weariness and fatigue from trying to make sense of the coming American elections. The news media are entirely useless and without substance, and the politicians themselves are utterly vacuous and without apparent substance. Of course, the scriptures as always are helpful in this regard. What else could you expect of this gaggle of grasping dissembling liars. Do we deserve what we’re getting from these clowns? If we regard the true nature of the human creature, we are all born in sin and deserve nothing less than death. For some of us, however we are citizens of another realm. We have accepted the gift of God’s love in Jesus Messiah’s life, death, and resurrection to life again. He suffered and died to pay for my sins. I choose to follow him and walk as he walked in this world regarding the noise, the  buzz of the world simply as the invitation to tell other people of a true and faithful God and friend.
