This winter season has only been going on for a month. It sure seems longer that that. We have had some record cold and quite a bit of snow. There are a lot of us that feel like this season has been going on much longer that a month and we are more than ready for spring.
But just because we feel a certain way is not enough to change the season. Winter will be over when it’s over.
That’s the way life is. Disliking a season in our lives is not enough to change it or stop it. Like it or not, some things just have to run there course. Some things will always get worse before they get better. Encouraging, isn’t it?
But don’t lose hope. Spring is only two months away. The birds will sing. The grass will grow and turn green. The sun will warm the earth. Why? Because God said that it would.

a quitter, but its worse to finish something you never should have started.” That’s a little
heavy for me on this second day of 2014.
I get the quitter thing. But it’s the second part of this quote that I find challenging. How
do we determine what is proper to start and see through? When you think about it the
possibilities are endless. But for me there is one simple guide. It is found in the Bible.
Proverbs tells us that if we trust God with our whole heart and not our own fickle
emotions, he will give us direction.
So there you go. Trust God. Seek God’s will for your life. He will give you direction.
Then you won’t end up trying to finish something you never should have begun in the

I know people are uncomfortable with all the talk about Christianity and war, but the battle is real. Even secular television host Bill O’Reilly has said that the Christmas season produces an increase of anti-Christian bias. So the church can ignore it and hope the battle goes away, or we can rise up and fight for the soul of our country. I say we fight. America is worth it and so is the future of our children. Multiculturalism is at the root of the battle for Christmas. Multiculturalism places all cultures on an even plane. Christmas is a Christian celebration and the multiculturalists don’t want a Christian holiday exalted. The multiculturalists do not want to see Christmas elevated, they instead want to lower Christmas to the level of other seasonal celebrations. Hence the watered down language such as: Happy Holidays, Holiday Trees, Holiday or seasonal celebrations, Winter Celebrations, Holiday sales etc. etc. etc. So what is the church to do? The church has to determine that our culture is worth fighting for. And the fight is a spiritual fight first and foremost. Therefore, we fight for the souls of the people in our culture. We pray for revival, witness, preach and love people. Then we fight in voting booths at election time and communicate with our elected leaders. Nothing gets their attention like an informed and involved voter. Enjoy Christmas. Christ is the answer for our world’s problems. America was founded on Christian principles and the multiculturalists can’t take that away.
