As I sit in my office this morning listening to the TV in the waiting room, I can honestly say that I am happy and I am at peace. I am happy because my voice was heard along with many others and we are about to see Mr. Donald Trump take the oath of office and become President Donald John Trump.
For those of you who didn’t vote for Donald Trump, I get it. You are not happy. As a matter of fact, I’m willing to bet that the majority of you are pissed off! I really do get it because I, along with the many others who voted for Donald Trump, felt the same way four years ago and eight years ago when President Obama was voted into office. But I ask you to do me this one favor and take a step back from those emotions and look at some of the issues that came out of the Obama administration listed below.
Eight years ago, the images above were not of issue. They had not come into play in our country or at least, not to the extreme that they have in the past eight years. These are just a few of the issues that came to light during the Obama administration. As a Christian, these are some of the issues that I feel have harmed, not helped our country and they are not small things, they are issues that have caused an abundance of pain, grief, fear and hopelessness in our country.
There were some things that President Obama did do that helped our country and I am grateful for those things but we can’t ignore the issues mentioned above and act as if they didn’t happen. Quite a few people who voted for Donald Trump did not want to vote for him, however, they too were tired of what has happened to this once great nation of ours and decided the time for typical politics was over and they were willing to vote in a man with no prior political experience, a man who didn’t serve in the military and a man who was a brand name and an established and experienced business man instead of voting in another typical politician. If that doesn’t speak volumes, I don’t know what does. Donald Trump ran his campaign on wanting to do what was right for every American regardless of whether they liked him or not. He wanted and wants to Make America Great Again. Now I’m not saying that President Trump will not make mistakes. It’s not a matter of if he will or not, it’s a matter of when and how bad the mistakes will be. Every President has made mistakes. They are human, and as we know, we can’t place our trust in humans for our salvation. Salvation comes from Our Lord and Savior.
So, whether you like President Trump or not, it is time for us to come together as a nation under God and to place God at the center of our nation. We must come together and unite under the Cross of Christ and set our differences aside if we are going to improve the problems that we have in our country. If we are true Christians, we must forgive and love our neighbor. John 13:35 – By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Today is the beginning of a new day in America. A day where President Donald Trump has vowed to start Making America Great Again! Will he be able to do it? Doubtful but, through God, all things are possible. May he look to Our Lord and ask Him for the guidance, courage and wisdom to run our country and may God bless he and his administration. Welcome Mr. President.
