A watched pot never boils
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 (NASB)

Before you finish reading this, I want you to understand that I as a God fearing person do get angry and I do know how to turn over tables when things are not right. Now you may read on.
By the time you read this, the Florida primaries and others will have been over, and you will know where the front runners stand as their Parties nominating convention approaches to the upcoming presidential elections.
I pray that the hostilities that have been enflamed in the political hell’s kitchen of the masterful chef in the form of Donald ‘Devil Duck’ Trump (DDDT) is trumped by the consciousness of America the Beautiful in all her diversity; and may the return of America to “greatness again” be gone like tobaca-spit in the wind while leaving its residue on the white hooded sheets worn by the perpetrators on freedom.
Those of you who are Hillary’s friends, those of you who are DDDT fans and those of you who love Bernie Sanders and all the rest of us voters candidates, we are all caught in the whirlwinds of questionable outcomes as our country sits atop of a powder keg and wonder who will strike the match.
After the smoke clears will the real remnants remain and prayerfully we shall be like the Phoenix and rise from the ashes, however scorched the earth may be.
There has been a lot of attention given to DDDT and his comments about “making America great again” and all of the other negative things associated with DDDT; his racism and hatred of anything contrary to what he wants.
We need to be mindful that no matter how the election process turns out there is a greater One who’s in control.
We should pray that the minds of those elected be turned to the greater perspective for the good of all.
We need to pay close attention to the entire election story, carefully line by line; scene by scene and role by role. Who is the director, producer and all of the supporting cast seen and unseen.
Yes, for those who believe as Malcolm X stated many years ago and I quote; “the chickens have come home to roost” and maybe so, but an infected chicken can ruin the entire hen house.
Elections are supposed to be a time of change and we according to scripture know that there is nothing new under the sun to include politricks and those who participate in such.
Throughout history we have had examples of those who refused to take part in anything that was not of God but of man, from Daniel in the lion’s den to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego- I like to think that it was ‘a bad negro’- and all those who refused to worship man.
This may be the time that our wrongs begin to be corrected so let’s truly pay close attention and move forward spiritually; that is something that we all have in common.
“If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another comforter, to be with you forever, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; but you know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:15-18
“A watched pot never boils” means: Time feels longer when you’re waiting for something to happen. The starting point of homily is recognized to Poor Richard, which was the alias that Benjamin Franklin used when he published his annual almanac.
