Kneeling bedside at 2 a.m. after election results were in, I tearfully thanked God and gave Him the glory for what just happened. The final text I received said it poignantly: "It feels like the thawing in Narnia when springtime returned."
Indulge me for a moment to describe it in dramatic yet honest terms. I, like multitudes, was euphoric and found sleep extremely challenging! May this unprecedented event remain aglow on the photographic plate of our minds to encourage us for years to come.
We literally witnessed a modern day political miracle. This was, without question, an astonishing once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. I still have to pinch myself that I'm not dreaming!
"Whoa, Larry! Aren't you getting a bit carried away?"

What if you felt called to do something that seemed like a completely impossible undertaking given the limited amount of time and resources you had?
Texas-based custom home builder, Dan Wallrath experienced this first hand in 2005 when asked to help a stranger who needed his home remodeled so he and his wife could take care of their son, a U.S. Marine Core Lance Cpl. who had sustained severe head injuries from an IED explosion while serving his first tour of duty in Iraq. Without the funds, and with no real plan, Dan said yes to this desperate father, completing the family’s home renovations a few months later.
Soon after, Operation FINALLY HOME was born as a 501C3 nonprofit organization with a mission to build homes for wounded, ill or injured veterans, surviving spouses and their families.
Building Hope: What Happens When God Changes Our Plans to Accomplish His is the story of Dan’s journey as he followed his call to serve America’s military heroes, starting with a team of one and growing to lead one of the nation’s most respected non-profit organizations serving U.S. veterans. This inspirational memoir reveals how stepping out in faith turned into a lifetime commitment to build homes for those who have sacrificed while wearing America’s uniform in defense of our freedoms and our way of life.

"And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain."
So sang Frank Sinatra in his classic song, "My Way." Closing arguments were submitted then came the verdict.
This is where America is at as the end is near for Election 2016.
CBS News said, "82% of Americans are disgusted with the presidential campaign." I opine the political situation is the result of the reckoning of eight years of incompetent, deceptive and uncooperative leadership that has brought us to a breaking point and this epochal moment.
I offer the following, fully aware that Trump's "Make America Great Again," pro-growth, reform agenda is laden with his glaring personal flaws. But as the Wall Street Journal stated in their editorial Saturday (11/5/16), "The case for Donald Trump is political disruption. A broken Washington needs to be shaken up and refocused on the public good, and who better to do it than an outsider beholden to neither political party?"
So where are we at this juncture in the road? No matter how distasteful the process has been, every Christian must help foster a turnaround before it's too late.
John believes that so many “Christians” are caught up in the election because they are living life with a 70-80 year perspective, instead living life with an eternal perspective. “When you live life with eternal goals, your whole focus changes…you start make decisions differently, pursue things differently, your interest become different,” says John. John believe that it’s all about getting your focus right…aligning with the King and His Kingdom who is eternal and never changes.
“Driven By Eternity” book excerpt:
To capture the best view of eternity, we must look at God Himself. He is not limited in power, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, or glory—just to name a few. He is self-existent; forever He was and forever He will be God. He is called the “Everlasting Father” (Isaiah 9:6).
He is called the “King of eternity” (1 Timothy 1:17 AMP). All that is eternal is found in Him; in fact, eternity itself is found in Him. All that is outside of Him is temporal and will change.
No matter how good, noble, powerful, or enduring it may seem…it will eventually cease. Even the earth and universe will change, but He will not:
“Lord, in the beginning you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Even they will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. You will roll them up like an old coat.” (Hebrews–12 NLT)
Not only will He never cease, but He remains eternally the same. Scripture declares:
“All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.” (1 Peter–25)
God is eternal; therefore, what He speaks is eternal. He cannot lie, nor can what He says be broken. If it weren’t so, then all would collapse into utter darkness, for He is light and upholds all things by His Word. There can never be a change to what He says, or else He would no longer be eternal. That is a sure foundation upon which we can build our lives.
There's a solid reason for "why" your child isn't liking school. The truth is, their brain and emotions could be having a physiological response to imposed behaviors that are counter intuitive to how their brain and human body likes to work and function best! Find out what these things are so that you can begin minimizing your child's stress....and become a stronger advocate for their well-being!
Recently USA TODAY did something they've never done in their 34 year history. Their Editorial Board never took sides in a presidential race till now. You'll never guess who they're supporting!
While they're not officially endorsing Hillary for the presidency, they list 10 reasons why Donald is "unfit for the presidency." Their editorial ends, "By all means vote, just not for Donald Trump."
While President Obama's hometown Chicago Tribune endorsed Gary Johnson for president, this "unbiased," free in the motels publication presents readers with detailed arguments why we shouldn't support the Republican candidate. Ten reasons were given to disqualify the Republican candidate for president selected by the largest number of Americans ever to vote in a Republican primary in history.
My wife believes this is another attempt to demoralize and discourage people from registering to vote since it's a"done deal" Hillary will win. Right?
Not so fast.
Proverbs 18:17 (Amp.) warns, "He who states his case first seems right, until his rival comes and cross-examines him." Examine their reasons to dump Trump. Some criticisms are valid. He has major flaws and truly is a work in progress! But should their same points apply to Clinton?

“Hell’s Hottest Place is Reserved for Whom?”
Without any Jeopardy music in the background, how would you answer the above question? Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave this thought-provoking response during his ministry.
“The hottest place in hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.”
Pastor Martin used the literary device, hyperbole, (from the Greek word meaning “over-casting”) to emphasize a point for a grander effect. In other words, he wanted to jolt people and awaken them to action.
The reason we initiated the 30 day Bullseye Challenge was to provide pastors, youth leaders, educators and parents with a resource to equip them and those they influence become informed influencers in today’s turbulent times. People who invest 15 minutes for 30 days viewing immediately accessible, free videos with an easy-to-read book will learn a scriptural worldview on the 30 hot button issues of today.
