A re-cap of wishes for 2010

January 7, 2011 - Cheryl Clarke
Let's see, after reading my blog from last January, let's take a look at what I wished for in 2010 and if any of it came about. 1. "That Osama bin Laden would be captured": nope, didn't happen, in fact, jihadist terrorism continues to dominate the minds of Americans and indeed, the world as our ever courageous troops continue to battle it in Afghanistan and Iraq. God bless them in their fight to keep us safe. 2. "I would love to see this country start turning itself around so we are moving in a more positive direction, away from more government control over our lives and toward more local involvement in government": Again, this doesn't seem on the surface to be happening, but the turn-around in Congress during the last election gives hope that it may happen yet. We will have to wait and see, and pray that the 112th Congress has more backbone than its predecessor. 3. "I also would like to see the economy turn around" :Well, unfortunately, the unemployment rate remained at over 9 percent through the year, and doesn't show signs of changing rapidly enough. Once again, I will add that to my wish list for 2011. 4. "I can only hope and pray that divine intervention, because of praying believers, makes the difference in this world" :That again makes my wish list for 2011. I know from experience the tremendous power of prayer, and because of the presence of believers in this world, we still enjoy the blessings of our Creator, despite the never ceasing efforts of the Enemy. 5. I add to my wish list for 2011 one more thing, that people continue to realize that abortion in any circumstance is against the will of God and that all life is precious. The abortion rate continues to drop steadily and is at its lowest rate (19 percent) since reaching a high of over 40 percent in the 1990s. May we all have a revelation about how precious life is to God and take on that same attitude ourselves. May God bless us in the new year.
