RESISTANCE?

The definition of RESISTANCE – an underground organization of a conquered or nearly conquered country engaging in sabotage and secret operations against occupation forces and collaborators.

There has been a lot of talk about a forming resistance movement in the United States.  This sounds like an archaic expression to be used in modern times.  It usually had to do with foreign oppression, wars, enemies.  Are we at war with ourselves in this country?

I wonder where this is leading us. Resistance is usually represented as one force pulling against another. Since the last election there has been a growing division within.  The most vocal and stubborn are those who can’t seem to let it go and relish in any piece of news that will suit their purpose.  We could easily become a house divided.

Please read the following quotes and decide for yourself.

“For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.”     Ralph Waldo Emerson

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”  Abraham Lincoln

“Terrorism is a psychological warfare. Terrorists try to manipulate us and change our behavior by creating fear, uncertainty, and division in society.” Patrick J. Kennedy

“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”  John F. Kennedy
 
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”   Ronald Reagan

“I’m back to now being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,” Hillary Clinton’

“I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.” 
Revelation 3:11

Trust always in the ways of the Lord.  He alone can heal our land.

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.

    Consider atimetoshare.me’s post. Then consider these questions.

    Are you part of the ant-Trump Resistance? That is, you are against President Donald Trump? Or are you doggedly pro-Trump? Are you bitterly on one side or the other side of the issues that divide America? Well, there is no law that says you cannot be against or for someone, but what is your cause? What do you stand for? What is it — who is it — you love?

    Soldiers win wars when they keep their mind on the objective, when they understand the mission statement. Instead of standing against even a devil like Satan and those he has made his minions, to win soldiers must stand for something. Christians stand for Jesus. We concentrate on spreading His Gospel, living as He taught, and we go to war making use of the weapons He has provided us. Hence when Christians started a new nation, the United States, those Christians created a government designed to protect the rights of the People. Instead of subjugating each other, Americans created a government that protected the rights of the People to be uniquely free.

    So what would divide us now? Have some of us become more interested in making our neighbors do something or give us something? Have we become more interested in getting something than we are in protecting each others rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Have we thoughtfully considered what we have to lose?
