Grimm's Musings: PART I: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times'

MUCH of our USA culture seems to have turned into passivists much like pre-WWII Germany, in the Church & outside. Too many currently seem satisfied to merely watch TV as this Country goes down the toilet. The masses are lulled into passivity than rattled about the diminishing of our standard of living, destruction of innocent life, dismantling of The Constitution, desecration of the American Flag and many other of our grass-root held sacred values without the population rising up in mass screaming 'STOP IT!'
This God Blessed USA has been a Divine Experiment as a Republic. We've been a melting pot, not a smorgasbord. These United States are because we united for one main idea, one purposeful ideology that being here on this American Soil was better than being anywhere else on Earth. We swore allegiance to its principals and stood united against any faction that threatened or voiced separating any of it. We worked to make it great not tear it apart at the seams. I ache to see LEADERS who will, for the good of the people, lead us to back to greatness. I am American born with roots back into the Revolutionary War. My family members fought on both sides of the Civil War.
My Father served in WWII, I served during Viet Nam and went to Iraq. My son has served in Kosovo and Iraq. Maybe, it's just me but I see things that frighten me from our elected officials.
I hear so many saying they're 'praying' but where are those who will stand in the gap? Where are those willing to be armored up to be on the Front Lines? Someone, for the good of the people, step up as a Leader, who is bright enough, who can keep their voice strong & clear.
As you've read so many of my thoughts that ricochet inside my head & pour out my pen, it is apparent my ability to focus is damaged. Still, my spirit grieves as I know there must be LEADERS or the people perish. 'WE, The People...' must have God-Called LEADERS!! I am not a Passivist or a Rabble-Rouser. I am a Christ Follower and ache to see The Church BE who we claim we are as HIS Church. THE Church is a people of every skin color, ethnicity, social and economic background who have been Redeemed by the Blood of Christ, a Holy Army of Grace minded people unified for the glory of God, Holy Spirit filled, prayed up & armored up, ready to do battle against the forces that are hell-bent to destroy us all. We don't just spout scriptures but we know the Author personally. We want people to know Him and we are accountable to Him. We bow to Him not changing Him into what we want Him to be but us being changed. This is that which brings true revival to The Church, salvation to unchurched and impacts culture. This isn't Church as some comfortable social elitist country club or some funeral parlor for some fallen dead guy but a celebration to a Living, Conquering King. We go to Church to get refocused on His priorities and His eternal cause.
"LORD, save us from our 'Ease of Mount Zion', purge Your Church, make us fit to be Your Bride and LEAD US' to STAND in Holy Boldness, unwavering commitment. Save us from our passivity." hrg
