God spark


It looks a little dark out there huh? 

It’s just been one thing after another. Human trafficking is running rampant, thousands of innocent children are parent-less at our border, drugs are pouring into our country -the drug cartels are giddy. Executive orders that infringe on our second Amendment, the blatant & open conspiring to stack our Supreme Court, abortion being celebrated, indoctrination in our schools, an attack on biological women, what is evil is being called good and what is good is being called evil …………. you know and I know, I could keep going…..

I am going to be real, the last two months I have been asking God, “what is going on?” 

The conversation for the most part, had been one sided, I wasn’t getting anything back. 

It was just quiet. 

It felt like I had been handed the screen play to a horror movie. And I have read the whole thing. It’s a really really bad bad movie. A terrifying movie actually. This movie has the villains winning. This movie has freedom ending and Communism overtaking. 

It’s a really HORRIBLE movie. 

It was back before the election, God spoke to my heart. He brought me back to the Passover with Moses. Those who had put the blood of an innocent lamb or goat over their doorpost were safe from the death of their first born. 

“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” Exodus 12:13

God was reminding me in that moment of His blood covenant. This blood covenant was then solidified forever through His son Jesus. This covenant IS protection. I saw my family safe under the shadow of His protective wings. At the time, I was confident Trump would be staying in the White House. So this was a comforting moment, but I was not in a state of concern. Since that moment, I have leaned back on this word and picture multiple times because, well uhhh now, NOW there’s been some concern!

It would be an understatement to say “so much” has transpired since that moment of assurance from God before the election. 

It has also been QUIET.

This quietness since the election has left me with a zillion questions, with very few answers. Yesterday, was a bit of a breakthrough. I was on the phone with my Dad talking about the state of our country and he said something that caused my spirit to leap. It wasn’t anything big, but it was something that grabbed me. It stirred me and ignited a little tiny spark. It has been so quiet but it was in a simple statement from my dad, that God spoke to me. 

I felt a tiny, tiny bit of hope ignite. My dad didn’t say anything ground breaking, but something in that moment hit me. It caused a peace, while simultaneously a hope. 

This hope was a God spark. 

Fires start with a spark. Often a fire is a smolder that grows into a flicker, that grows into a flame and then the fire ignites a blaze that can not be stopped. 

What God starts HE will finish and He is not done with America.

I want to tell you, God is on the move. 

I get it, it looks a little dark, okay a lot dark but God is moving. 

This scripture popped out to me at a prayer meeting this morning. 

“darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Genesis 1:2 

Darkness. It was TOTAL darkness. There was nothing other than darkness. But in the darkness God was hovering. 

To hover: To remain floating, suspended, or fluttering in the air.

God was in motion even in the darkness, and then He spoke. 

“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” Genesis 1:3 

God is in motion right now. You might not see it, because of the darkness, but He IS moving. Nothing that is happening right now surprises God. Let me repeat that, nothing that is happening right now surprises God. 

He is hovering. He is in motion and He is on the move. 

Your prayers have not failed. Your crying out to God for this nation has not been in vain. His ways are higher than our ways. 

I will tell you -there is a flicker. I can see it. It’s faint and kinda far off, but I see it. It’s going to grow. It’s going to grow into a flame and that flame is going to ignite a fire and no enemy from hell will be able to stop it. 

“For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29

We are on the winning team. We have God. We have the one who conquered it all. 

“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out,

TILL he has brought JUSTICE through to victory.”

Matthew 12:20 

Hold on. Keep running this race. 

The fire is coming. The smolder has begun!

I have hope

Last Tuesday evening I attended my GOP Organizational meeting……I was kinda skeptical….because I had talked to two other family members who didn’t enjoy there’s so much. My younger sister said she literally walked into a nursing home at hers (no offense to those in nursing homes) but my sister said she was the youngest one there by about 30 years! My dad’s county is having a helluva hard time being open to change, hearing new ideas, welcoming new people, embracing all walks of life….they are perfectly fine with average….they have no desire to be exceptional or welcome those who are exceptional.

So hey…..I’ll admit, I was like a little bit of a cynic at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting.

What happened though at my organizational meeting gave me hope. We elected a chairman that had not been part of the poltical hoopla! Now he has done some things to promote the Conservative cause-but he’s not part of that insider click….which is so refreshing! I’ll admit, I was scared as hell, when he spoke at a meeting I was at a month ago, and a women in the audience yelled out “I don’t know you, I have never seen you, how do I know what you stand for!?” Ughhhhh when I heard that I wanted to run over to that woman and say: “YOU are part of the problem! You don’t want anything new and that’s why we keep losing elections!” But…..I held my tongue 😉 So…..I didn’t think this guy stood a chance….and I was totally wrong!!! We got a new guy at the helm and I am excited. We also elected a young millenial as our county treasurer, a grass roots Conservative as our Secretary and an ex-Californian mother of two as our Vice chair!

I was given a sense of change is coming….a good change…..a change for the better….a change and call for returning to our roots and electing the best person for the job!

Ya see…..I have watched candidates in other counties in other elections….lose because they were new or different. They had not put in enough volunteer hours at the phone banks, they hadn’t walked enough precincts, they hadn’t mailed out enough envelopes, they hadn’t served on enough campaigns…..they hadn’t “earned” their spot.

I think this whole idea of “earning” a spot has created this career politician mentality. These people that earn their spots have been part of the political class for years! They become so immersed that they lose touch with the small businessman, the single mom working two jobs, the young millenials….these people form their groups, and if you aren’t part of the group-then you don’t stand a chance at getting elected into anything……ya it’s a flash back to high school!

I didn’t see this from my county though. I was so proud and excited when I left my meeting on Tuesday, because the right people were elected….not those that expected to be elected because they had “earned” it.

I grew up with a father that worked harder than anyone I had every known. He raised seven children with my mother, he has put all his children through college, he has started businesses, he has taken risks, he has always been there when I needed a shoulder to cry on, he’s coached little leagues, he’s cheered me on in every thing I have set out to accomplish, he is the definition of the capitalism dream, he has honored God in every area of his life and never held a political office, not because he’s never ran for office but because …..in his county….you have to “earn” it.

I am just glad I live in a county that is waking up. My hope and prayer is that other counties in the country begin to wake up! That the permanent political class is ousted and that we begin electing citizens of the people and for the people. That we return to our roots of true conservatism and the BEST man or woman is elected to serve-this is what our forefathers intended.

Tuesday, gave me that hope.
