Obama – Helping me Share Jesus

This morning at work the crew was pretty pumped about the election results. Most of them supported Obama in the election. One of my co-workers was really excited about all the Democrats who won. She kept singing “Oh happy day, Oh happy day.”

She sang, “Oh happy Day” then someon else echoed “Oh happy day.”

At this point I chimed in with the next two lines, “When Jesus washed, my sins away.”

Another coworker said, “Break it down Church!” (They call me “Church.”)

I told the crew I’d bring my guitar in tomorrow.

Honestly I was pretty bummed when I woke up to today’s elections results. But when else do you get to sing about Jesus at work with your non-churchgoing coworkers? That’s a win in my book.

As for our political leaders I think I can deal. God is the one who sets up rulers and governors so I’ll trust Him on this one. Besides, my real citizenship is in the Kingdom of Heaven and Jesus Chris is my King.

    thanks so much for sharing your rational view on this
    I was terrified for a while
    that I was the only one who thought this way
    in fact I was even yelled at a few minutes ago
    for asking a fellow Christian to stop cussing out Obama supporters
    I guess I just wish I could share the way I felt
    when my devotions today told me

    “Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
    loving look at me, your High God,
    above politics, above everything.” [Psalm 46:10]

    I’m trying my best to be still and know He is God
    it’s just sometimes my hands shake without my permission

    “break it down, church” …. tomorrow, I’ll take my guitar …

    Bro, do you have ANY IDEA just how big of an opportunity God has for you? Wow, talk about making lemons out of lemonade. Win their hearts, as I know you are already … and we’ll see Jesus win their hearts, too!

    For the Kingdom,

    I love you brother. I know you know, but I’m writing it anyway. If God is for us who can be against us. Thanks for being so transparent. We need to come down and worship with you one Sunday.
