Happy Thursday friends,

I've been struggling a little bit lately, so I thought I'd write it out.  :)

I've gone from election night blues to a righteous anger to a dull ache.  I'm trying to stay in focus and in touch with the Lord, and He has been good - dropping some really incredible resources in front of me.

...and I've been learning so much.

...but still.  Sigh.

Anyone else feeling it too?

I'm feeling like a drug addict not knowing where to get the next hit.  I loved my Fox News "bookends" for years now.

Fox & Friends in the morning while I got ready and then, Tucker and Sean before bed.  It was the perfect good morning and end cap to my days.

(I've never cared much for the news folks in the middle.  My apologies if you do, I just never did...)

So now that Fox News has gone all CNN and MSDNC on us (the Christian, Conservative Right), I'm off in a new realm...

...and it's left me feeling empty in my morning routine - as I said above - like a drug addict with no stash and not sure where to find one.

Fast forward to this morning and my no-news, no-Fox & Friends blues.

I decided it was time to fill in the void with Jesus.  I could watch some YouTube videos people have been sending me of Rabbis and Preachers or I could watch Unashamed by the Robinson family.  Instead, I decided I just needed to PRAISE.

So that's what I did.

"Alexa, play PRAISE and WORSHIP."  My Pastor, Louie Giglio, always says, "When you are down and out, just turn on Praise and Worship music; it's amazing what it can do for your soul and your Spirit."

Listening to that music this morning was great, and it helped lift my spirits just as it was intended to do.

As I drove to work, I asked God to provide guidance today - whether from a friend at work or a reading He would lay in my path.

(I so love when God shows up specifically.)

Below is what he gave me, from my daily Levi Lusko reading.  I love it because (for me anyway) it specifically addresses how I feel about the current election process going on in our Country.

So many people praying and asking for God's direction, protection, and healing - and yet, we all know there is so much more to the story than we can actually, physically see.

God is the BIGGEST, the most POWERFUL, and the most MIGHTY.  He can see things we cannot see, and in times of desperation, like now, we must remember that and lean into the shelter He gives.

Hidden In Plain Sight

The human eye sees more than you realize—much more than you can actually process. For instance, when you look up at the stars, you are technically looking at all of them; you just can’t perceive all you are seeing. I can prove it to you. A telescope or other lens just magnifies and brings into focus what you are already looking at, what is there all along. Even in the daytime, the stars are right in front of you, hidden in plain sight. The reason you can’t make out what you are seeing is because of distance and interference. So it is spiritually.

You must not rely on the naked eye. What you think you see is not all that is there. There are unseen things. Spiritual things. Eternal things. You must learn to see life through the eyes of a Lion. Doing so is to utilize the telescope of faith, which will not only allow you to perceive the invisible—it will give you the strength to do the impossible.

Proverbs 28:1 says, "The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion."

2 Cor 5:7 says, "For we live by faith, not sight."

Great verses to remember during a time in our Country's battle for righteousness, protection, and healing.

Remember friends, our battle is not over.  We still have a lot of fight left to save and protect our Country.  Keep praying, keep studying, and stay on guard.

The enemy roams back and forth ready to devour.  We must be ready to defend.

Stand strong Patriots, and don't let the funks overtake you, as I learned this morning.  Together, we have the Lord in this fight with us!
