Ted 3 (The Bear Comes Out)

The stuffed bear of erstwhile movie fame has two credits to his resume.  If bad humor could get votes, I think people would vote for the stuffed zoo escapee for President.  Instead they put their hope on the king of media, Donald Trump.    He is the 2016 version of hope and change.  No depth, no values, no commitment to anything other than winning.  We already elected that guy, BARACK OBAMA.

With Ted Cruz, if you look at his record, you have to conclude he has a moral foundation and is a phenomenal supporter of the constitution.  If you support life, believe in the second amendment and small government, then he is the Ted for you.  This is TED 3.

Unless, Cruz learns to speak plainly and bluntly he won’t succeed.  His message needs to be raw, not erudite.  Unless he masters that he won’t pull the blind mice from following Trump the New York piper.

What is Success?

If you can look back on each day and honestly say:  (Casting Crown Lyrics)

Lord,

I want to sign Your name
To the end of this day
Knowing that my heart was true.

Or as Martin Luther King Jr. said in 1967:

“Be a bush is you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be the trail, If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.”

Can you look in the mirror and say that you gave all within your ability? Will God sign off on your day? Would you sign off on your own day?  What does that voice inside you say?

Be encouraged that no matter the circumstance each day is new.  Ask God for guidance and follow his lead.  It’s not always going to me financially rewarding or filled with physical blessings, but it will enliven the heart in all circumstances.  Joy in the Lord by far overwhelms joy in riches and gold.  I pray for you that you will find your best each day.
