When did you cry?

I cried the next morning on my way to work as the air seemed different, the people kinder, and the world even with its many problems seem lighter. God Please bless this man Barack Obama. He is our Joshua, You remember the story of Joshua? When it was time for the children of Abraham who had been wandering in the wilderness as punishment for their disobedience and unbelief, there was needed a leader to lead them the way to the promised land. Moses would not be allowed to go to the promised land. There was a need for a new leader. Young Joshua fit the bill. He was brave, level headed and was called to encourage the people and battle their enemies until they arrived in the promised land.

Barack Obama is America's Joshua, brave, level headed, and strong of character. Like the Israelites we have to follow him to lead us out of the mess we are in now. He is not Jesus, he is not infallible. He is though like Joshua with heart and vision. My prayer is that he stays safe, maintains clear vision and stay courageous. We need him. The world needs him.
