Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

How many true Christians does Houston, Texas have?

Texas residents of Houston voted in for an openly gay homosexual to be their mayor with only 16% of the voting population of 2.2 million exercising their right to vote.  Houston supposedly has 60,000 residents who considered themselves as homosexual. "I'm proud that the city of Houston has grown and matured" says the new mayor.

 

I just wondered in the huge city of Houston with 2.2 million residents--how many were true Christians?  Surely there were more than 152,000 (the 16%).  So the question comes to mind--where were the Christians?  Did they not care about the election?  Or do the thoughts of God ( something that is an abomination to God-- see Leviticus 18:22 ) have no importance to them because it is politically incorrect?  Who then is their new God?

Christians can make such a big difference in the culture but only if they want to.  It just seems so simple to understand that God wants us as citizens of this blessed land, who was formed with answered prayers by Him, that we would do our part as grateful citizens.  John Jay points out Providence has given us the right, but it is our duty to choose rulers according to His Word:

Exodus 18:21

Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

Ezra 7:25

And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not.

I think the Christians in Houston, Texas and all of us this nation have to look at ourselves in the mirror.  In these days, where people of this nation are hurting in so many ways--it is time to look at who is to blame.  I can't help but think of this scripture:

2 Chronicles 7:14

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.

I think for everyone who thinks they are a Christian but do not perceive their vote matters--I hope they will have a talk with God "on their knees" (something George Washington did not mind doing for his nation) because they have been given much and yes, much is expected of them.  We were placed  on this city on a hill and what a privilege that is--surely we want it to continue to shine?  Houston, Texas is an example and unfortunately not for good but our God is a forgiving God--hope many will see the need to humble themselves and speak to Him from whom all blessings flow.  Maybe this Christmas is a good time to look at the true meaning of the manger--God has given us his all--what can we give in return?
