This is a question I have been asking God for quite some time…
“What in the world am I here for?”
And although I haven’t received the completed and final answer to this yet (I’m still breathing), I have learned some things. One such piece of knowledge is this… If I start with “What” and end with “for”, I have a complete sentence.
Now I can ask, “What (am I) for?”
Personally speaking, this is an easy answer for me. I am completely bought by and sold out– for Jesus Christ, the Lord my God. I can prove the purchase and I so pray that you can see what’s been done with the receipt.
Now for the hard part…
Addressing the “what” and “for” of the day.
Politically speaking, that is!
(I’m sure you saw this coming.)
I use to say “I am woman hear me roar.” (Although those days have been long gone. And not because some man whooped me into shape, either. God has! ♥ He’s the only one who really ‘showed up’.) But I’m not the lion, nor do I come to kill, rob, and destroy. There is, however, at least one who is and does.
Looking at our “choices” for presidential candidates this “fall”, I can barely talk because of the competing nausea rising up in my throat. If you are looking for Jesus you won’t find Him at either party. So- I can’t stand “for” either, which leads me back to the “what”.
“What” I will never be able to wrap my head around, is how anyone with a functioning brain (and conscience) can support late stage abortion. To me, this is any time after the first trimester. And yes, I remember well the days of “pro-choice”. I was one of them. I still can remember the days, decades ago, where I proclaimed that abortion was an option if I ever had to make that birth control choice. 😦 (Sadly, the enemy likes to haunt me with this, even today.)
I still find no issue with choice. The good Lord gave us, and still does… free will to choose. He did not create us to be robots to serve Him without question(s). He gave us a choice to love Him and freely do “for” Him as we “please”.
Back to the “human” race-
I personally see no good in either of the presidential candidates… no not one! But right now, there is a candidate vying for presidency who chooses to stand “for murder”. There is absolutely no way anyone can justify this as anything else. This goes way beyond the boundaries and heart-wrenching decisions of choice… to pro-murder.
I thank the Lord that I never had to make such a choice. I have however, had three miscarriages. I can tell you that they are heart-breaking and in my case, three experiences that I will never forget. Sometimes death feels like it lasts a lifetime. I can’t imagine what those who had to endure the ramifications and consequences of such a decision (electing for an abortion, also referred to as “a termination”) would be. My heart goes out to them. (And some days, I think I can feel your pain.)
You are welcome to take any or all of what I have said to heart, as you venture to the polls this Fall to make yet another choice. As “we the people” at the moment… have the right, a voice, and a choice to do so. “Thank God!!!”
“Lord, I need You!!!” America needs You!!! The World needs You!!! We all need You… NOW!!!

And if you are wondering what I received from Him in response to my “What in the world am I here for?” (Even Christians call me a “Jesus Freak”.) As clear as I’ve ever heard Him… “What if I made YOU exactly who you are – for such a time as this?!” “What if” and–
