Swiped

There’s a lot of swiping going on these days.

Swipe right. Swipe up. Swipe your card here. Swipe at (someone). Swipe out the two. Swiped it from ____. One last swipe of the mop. The cat took a swipe at me. Gently swiped the brush. Etc.

I am so stirred up about us being ripped off! We have been stolen from. So much has been swiped from us.

Yes, it involves the constant swiping of our phones, thumbs and fingers. In those actions, our time and focuses have been and are being robbed at alarming rates and frequency. But there’s so much more than that.

I made a list today of ways in which our lives have been robbed this year. Things that have been swiped from us. See what you can add to this list…

  • open (unmasked) faces
  • smiles
  • free speech
  • social gatherings
  • human interaction
  • business
  • employment
  • education
  • shopping
  • entertainment venues
  • constitutional freedoms
  • personal choice
  • outdoor gatherings
  • religious gatherings
  • celebrations
  • dreams
  • hopes
  • visions
  • health needs
  • family gatherings
  • safe society
  • law enforcement
  • happiness
  • enjoyment
  • growing economy
  • political unity
  • societal harmony
  • patriotism
  • respect
  • honor
  • peace
  • free movement
  • trust
  • American values
  • American freedoms

Geesh! Please add yours. Go ahead, say them out loud.

We have been robbed! We have been ripped off. All these things have been swiped from us!

I am spitting mad! This is enough! No more!

Call me a simple person, but this kind of list does not come from the One who created us, has our best interest at heart, and has plans to prosper us and give us peace. The things on this list are 180 degrees opposite to the loving, caring, satisfying, good, kind, gentle, hopeful, fulfilling, satisfying and rewarding One who is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent.

We have got to wake up America! We are under attact! We are in a spiritual warfare! I can no longer sit silent and not address the elephant in the room.

If you have never before engaged in “spiritual warfare”, now is the time! That simply means, we do not address the issues we see with our natural understanding or in our natural ways. WE PRAY! We seek God’s way of dealing with the issue. We commit it to Him, ask for His insight, strength and strategy. Then, we follow his direction.

The things we see happening in our nation, left unaddressed spiritually, will not end well for us or the nation that we love.

Yet, through a nation in prayer, the tide can change, and miracles will happen.

Our Great God, Creator of the Universe WOULD NEVER rip you off, steal from you, rob you or swipe one thing from you, or your future generations. That is NOT who HE is, how He loves, or what His plan is for you.

Please realize that. You are loved. By Him.

I’m so tired of being swiped from! Aren’t you?

Cheers to you.
