CONSCIENCE

Conscience is defined by Webster as an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.  Martin Luther spoke of his conscience as being captive to the Word of God and that he could not go against conscience.  When we are told to “vote our conscience,” we are expected to vote for what we believe in, especially the tenets for which the candidate stands for.

I’ve already done my civic duty.  Since moving, it was necessary to register and to avoid the long lines on election day, we voted early.  It felt rather strange to do this.  We were the only ones at the election site.

Often we go in to vote with great confidence because of our commitment to what we believe is best for our nation. When it comes to a presidential election, we feel proud to voice ourselves through our votes.  It is, after all, one of the few rights we still hold as citizens.  We educate ourselves – we’re affected by things we hear and read – we look at political and experience records, how our candidate will carry out his/her duties – we listen to that little voice in the back of our head, our conscience.

By listening to that resonating tone, we are truly voting what we believe in – not what has been spewed at us from the world, but what we believe is in accordance with our moral values.  I would not assume to tell anyone how to vote. Most of you already know who I voted for.  I do ask that before you make your decision, you look at the facts – not the licentiousness coming from the media.  Look to your inner voice – the one that God has placed within you, to help you discern between right and wrong and then vote with confidence.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. a great reminder of the varying degrees between conscience and confidence—
    as in I confidently voted my conscience early for not the outright crook or lady who’s hands are covered in blood—a small fact the general public seems to ignore…
