Not too late

I am going to put a really good and educational speech here for anyone interested. Let me first say there is some unfortunate uses of language here and there, but overall it is very helpful. I would not usually endorse anything with material I consider immoral or wrong, but really feel this is a very good speech, overall, for the purpose of informing us and giving us the "straight scoop". It comes from Hillsdale College which is a very conservative (not Christian) college. If you want to get charged up about the times we are in and how we can overcome them, listen. It is a little long (40 min) with a long intoduction. Worth listening to in my opinion.
Here it is:
As I said, listen with the knowledge that there is some less than ideal language in a few places, but one can still learn a lot here!

I have been thinking a lot lately about out country and the fact that this "healthcare bill" has gone through.We are in some tremendously difficult times and I don't believe in sitting idly by and letting it run us over. I want to encourage us all to be informed and active. It is NOT too late as some would have us to believe. There is something for us all to do to make a difference! Whether it is praying (A very good idea/start!!) and getting out there and making a firm stand for truth. We all have a part. Please, young people, don't let anyone despise your youth, as the Bible says. You too can be useful to God's kingdom now! You were put here for such a time as this, don't waste it!
I can't say it enough, it is imperative that we, first and foremost, get on our knees and ask God's forgiveness for the sins of our land. The next thing is to ask God what he would have us to do in addition to prayer. Mother's and father's please be teaching your children, the next generation, the truth of God's word and the truth about the way our country was founded and all of our rich history. Please spend time daily in teaching, training and raising up Godly men and women, statesmen, leaders and those who will not walk in apathy and compromise. To love God with their whole heart, soul, mind and strength! To seek first His kingdom and righteousness; to do His holy will! Also, we must continue to pray for our leaders.
I am sorry. I will get off my soap box now.
We do have work to do. Pray for our America and for the lost. Keep His word always close to your heart and live in love with Him! Lets be those who are culture changers!

God Bless you.

"I want a principle within
Of watchful, Godly fear,
A sensibility of sin, A pain to feel it near.

Of pride or wrong desire,
To catch the wand'ring of my will
And quench the kindling fire."

Hello precious people of God!

I have been thinking about the push by our president to get this government controlled healthcare system through, despite the fact that 75% of the American people are against it. You know what I say? GOD IS ON THE THRONE!!!! I say we need to pray, and pray, and pray! He hears us and He cares about our condition! 2 Chronicles is applicable right now. We must, as a nation, turn from our wicked ways and seek Him, He will, and does, hear from heaven and I believe, He will heal our land. Sometimes He allows such things for the purpose of getting us on our knees. Either way, and no matter what happens, HE reigns on high! I just want to encourage you people of God to trust Him and pray, and then know He is in total control. Nothing takes Him by surprise! Isn't that the most comforting and secure thought? We need not worry.Praise Him!!!! Sing your songs of love to Him and rest in HIM!!!!
What an awesome privilege to know Him, serve Him, and commune with Him. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is THE FAITHFUL ONE! Stay close to our great and Mighty God!
Take heart and fear not. Put your whole trust and hope in HIM and pray fervently with everything in you!

God Bless you!
