This year has been an exceptionally difficult year for many people in various ways. Our family, like others, has not escaped being touched by the wicked one (which I may share in detail at a later date). I have found that those of us who have maintained our faith in God, our relationship with God, and our gratitude for God are coming out of this year shining. There are many things that could discourage us but we have chosen joy instead. We know that God is not only able, He is willing. He will have His way. And the best is yet to come.
It is on that note that I wish to share something deeply personal with you. I have loved Jesus since I was a child — at least to the extent I could love and understand. I have loved my nation as well and have interceded for her since I was a teenager. Maybe 10 years ago, I asked the LORD for a story concerning my country and He gave it to me. I knocked on different doors and sought out various platforms but there never seemed to be the right time or place. Now is the time, here is the place. Some will be offended by the message but I have decided to take no care for that. The Truth sets people free and I unashamedly present it. This is The Time in Between. God is sorting the wheat and the tares. He sees who has clung to righteousness and those who have not. This is a time of repentance for those who have chosen to side with anything outside of His Word. He gives us this time, this opportunity, because God is love and does not desire that we suffer needlessly. But lest we forget, He is also just, and sometimes our choices bring our own consequential demise.
I add that this is a time of shaking for all of us. Those of us whose foundation is the LORD will indeed have a remaining foundation upon which He will build. And He will build with such speed and in such a fashion that we will be amazed.
Some may weep when you view what I present today and my hope is that all are moved to prayer and action for the United States of America. I encourage those of you outside of our borders that God is not exclusive but available to “whosoever will”. 2 Chronicles 7:14 includes you and your nation as well as me and mine.
A special shout out to my friend, Nicole, who has an incalculable amount of talent and boundless inspiration for what comes next. You can find more of her work on YouTube at The Memory Maker Nicole. Thank you, Nicole.
Thank You, God, Master Creator. You are amazing!
