Ever get convicted by God to do something?
What do you do when that conviction happens?
Do you act on it? Do you just leave it sit?
So Yesterday on my way home not once but twice I see a sign that says:
2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV) 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
It places a check in my brain when I see it the second time.
I think to myself, Shelle, you had best pay attention to that because the Lord will
ask you to use it if he has shown it to you twice. If he shows it to you a 3rd time you better share.
About, a month ago Sandra Crosnoe posted this information about the upcoming election on Tuesday, June 11th:
Thank you Sandra for being obedient to the Lord in researching this matter, to help us all be better stewards!!!! Forgive me, for being slow to recognize the importance of this matter and/or the time you have invested in the research.
What does this 1/2 cent sales tax do? Why would I ask you to humbly pray?
Well, the key word in here is humble, it means I need to remove my
pride and think about the things I need and not the things I want.
Are you aware of the spending that is being planned on and around this
1/2 cent sales tax?
Seek you Lord for an answer!!!
If you don’t believe me, go reason with the Lord.When the Lord asks us to Humble ourselves and pray, it is almost always to bring us to awareness.
The consequences of not making ourselves aware, almost always leaves the generations that follow us, bearing the burden of our mistakes.
The Lord is leading me to vote, NO. How is he leading you?
In his love

The Lord said in 2 Timothy 3
New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without
love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not
lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying
its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
see 1st Samuel 8
PS. Did we really need some of the things this last half cent paid for?
Do you know what it paid for?
In these hard times a half cent means more than one would think. Tax
revenues increase as costs increase as well. How much more are you
paying in sales tax today due to inflation? How much more can you
afford that half cent then the next guy? Are you willing to decide for
him because you can afford it?
Set yourselves free. Debt is bondage!!!
