Tired of election year rhetoric?

I'm sure the candidates must be too. Both the Bush/Cheney and Kerry/Edwards teams seem to be running out of rhetoric. If you haven't noticed, there are times when the recorded sound bytes are almost verbatim from the other side. Does the Bush team have a clear plan to put the economy back on track? No. Does Kerry? No, but if Bush comes up with something that sounds good you can be sure he will try it out on the campaign trail. Who knows what to do about Iraq? Don't get me started! As far as I'm concerned, George W. Bush got us into Irag and I would hate to see him get out of getting us out-- if we ever do, that is.

What does the Lord have to say about all this flap about who should be president? Well, I really wouldn't want to say anything about it but I certainly wouldn't take the Florida excursion as any kind of a "good" sign.

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Whole Chapter: Philippians 4 In context: Philippians 4:12-14)

Ever feel that there is something you should do that you just feel you can't do? If it were just something you wanted to do for yourself it probably wouldn't bother you much unless it was really important. But what if it is something God would want you to do? Philippians 4:13 assures us that we can do those things that the Lord would have us do that will strengthen or edify us. Of course, that is not an encouragement to do whatever comes to mind with the conviction that He will "have our back" so to speak. But if there is any good that can come of it then He will be faithful to enable us to fulfil the task set before us. If we fail it means one of two things; either we chose the wrong thing to do or we didn't place our faith in Him to enable us to do it.
