Obama and The Cross

Obama and The Cross has been on my mind all day. Based on my interactions with some other Christians in conversation and posts on facebook; I get the impression President Obama's faith and religion is constantly questioned, scrutinized, and judged. At times I may have joined in on the debate and judgment.

If Obama is a Christian how painful will it have been to be him. Persecuted by his own people who were also adopted as one of God's children. How painful will it be for me to explain my self righteous judgment on him to Our Father.

If I lived one day in the public eye I am most certain that my Christianity would be under fire. My imperfect, sinful nature for all the world to see would certainly cause my faith to be that of a quiet reflection and relationship between myself and my Lord.

I realized yesterday that not getting what I want is a good thing. I have been so blessed with so many of the desires of my heart that I have come to expect getting all that I want. Then when I don't, oh geez the revelation is a dark and ungrateful heart. Not getting what I want is an opportunity to for me to reveal some of the fruit of the spirit.
