This is a letter to our friends –


Going into the mid-term elections, I was sure the righteous winning streak would continue and most candidates with an “R” by their name would win election. I was wrong.

I would rather be optimistic and disappointed,
than pessimistic and correct!

Being pessimistic may be “facing reality”, but it sure doesn’t make you feel better! Pessimism is sure defeat on the battle field! Your enemy has already won the conflict if he can make you look where he wants you to look.

The Bible has some practical advice, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” [Philippians 4:8]

I am certain (not just optimistic) that – after the last battle – Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus the Christ is Lord.
