  • Lisa's Jars of Joy


Now that the election is over, it’s important that We the People remember how the

United States of America was founded. Brave and courageous folks traveled a great

distance to find a place where they could freely worship. A place where they could live

the life they chose. A place where they were responsible for their own future.

Our beautiful country’s safety and prosperity has been bought by the blood of many

men and women who laid down their lives to ensure a better future for their current and future families. Our freedom comes at great cost. It’s vital we don’t forget where we

come from and who we are.

But, there’s a much bigger and eternal picture here as well. Those who are disciples of

Jesus must remember Whose we are. Our mission statement is to love God with all our

hearts, souls and minds and to love others as we love ourselves. Our job is not to try to

control and manipulate God and others. If we are hateful and bitter towards others that

are different than us, we are no better than those who don’t understand Jesus’ Love yet.

Father God, we humans have a tendency to get so caught up in wanting what we want

and forgetting this world will not last. Whoever does what God wants is set for

eternity. (1 John 2:17) No matter who is elected this season, You already know and

You have a plan. Help me to let You be You and I’ll be me. I’m only one person, but I

can love my neighbor and keep moving forward, doing the work You prepared long

before I was born. Amen.

Now God has us where He wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to

shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all His idea, all His

work. All we do is trust Him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to

finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging

that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God

does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join

Him in the work He does, the good work He has gotten ready for us to do, work

we had better be doing. Ephesians 2:7-10 MSG
