How to Stay Sane in a World Gone Mad November 16, 2020

For those of us who support the notion of maintaining the integrity of the great American experiment in personal liberty and economic freedom within the framework of a representative republic operating on democratic principles the events unfolding before us are the stuff of Orwellian nightmares.  Like watching a slow-motion train wreck, we have tuned in day after day to the spectacle of the once celebrated fairness of the American election system descending to a level that would make third-world banana republics, the old Soviet satellites, and Mideast pretend democracies blush.   

Election laws ignored, truckloads of ballots brought in under the cover of darkness and voting machines with pre-programmed winners and losers all covered over and excused by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.  And if you think the self-anointing establishment has convinced everyone that their straw man candidate and his Vice Power-behind-the-throne running mate have won anything ask the people who still have plywood up over their windows in the blue state people’s republics. 

Many on the Left have likened their battle to a Revolution, and one I think might resemble more what occurred in Russia in November 1917 than anything that has ever happened in our own History.  Many on the Right call this the preliminary battles of a new Civil War based not on sectional differences but on what Pat Buchanan warned us about more than thirty years ago; a cultural war for the soul of America.  This bewildering landscape with votes both legal and illegal scattered all over the place is a great battlefield and those who seek fairness must stand with Lincoln who hoped after the bloodbath of Gettysburg, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” 

And we can echo the sentiments of Reagan who during his magnificent fight to restore America said, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” 

This thing is still very much up in the air.  And if we don’t want the Prince of the Power of the Air to win on all fronts it is absolutely critical that those who believe in the power of prayer in Jesus’ name do not lose heart.  We can spend our days glued to the TV or searching the Internet for news or we can instead recall that God is in control.  It was a miracle that gave us President Trump in the first place, and we can still believe for a miracle today.  Don’t give up.  Don’t despair.  Remember, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”  And, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”  We can trust Him.  So why worry when we can pray. 

Ultimately the path I am advocating can be summed up in the chorus to an old song, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.” 

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

Amen! I only keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. I believe in miracles and I know that God is in control.
