The days may be dark, but there is a Light

I love my country. That’s why, once upon a time, I swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all threats, foreign and domestic. Seems like there are as many domestic as foreign threats now. One is the current President, and the current leading candidates for both parties are just as dangerous. It’s a dark time in the USA.

But the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ has always shined brightest in dark times. That’s obvious. As much as I love the USA, I love my Lord more, and I’m more thankful for the freedom I have through His gospel than the freedom I enjoy thanks to the Constitution. While I have strong political opinions, I’m not pessimistic about the future, because the Lord God is both transcendent and immanent. He is both high and lifted up and in our midst accomplishing His will.

My desire is to be joyfully faithful to that task right where and when He has set me down, all the way to the end. God is good all the time. All the time God is good.
