2 Chronicles 7:14 says, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." We are at a pivotal time in our nations history. The decisions that will be made in the next few days will forever change our lives. The United States of America is in a spiritual state of emergency and it is imperative that we as Christians prepare for battle. If God is for us who can stand against us? First of all though, we must have our hearts right before him. We must not shirk our duty to pray and seek his help. We must always remember God does not play favorites...we must be on our knees humble asking him to help us. I want to encourage each of you to not be overcome by evil, but rather overcome evil with good. The days ahead look dark and it doesn't seem like there is much hope, but God brings hope to the hopeless. Pray for our country, pray for our leaders, pray for the people of the united states of America, that God would open our eyes to our wickedness. We can not survive without his hand of grace. We must pray, we must repent, we must seek his face, and we must do all we can to reach a lost, dying country and world for HIM.

I write to you tonight by candlelight and with the aroma of Cinnamon and spice wafting in the air I am reminded that fall is on its way, with it bringing change. It is ushered in by the crisp cool breeze of autumn days. Gone are the bright and happy hues of spring, in their place we see beautiful browns, regal reds, youthful yellows, and opulent oranges. Everything around us changes, out with the t-shirts, shorts, and sandals in comes hats, coats, gloves, and scarves. Amid this season of change, however, I am reminded of God's unchangingness and his steadfast love and faithfulness to me. (Psalm 103:1-5)
