#Make #America #Great #Again! The Prodigal Country



I think we are … I think that what scares a lot of people is that President Trump may appear to have little experience being a president.  Oh, the irony, no president ever did have experience going into that gig.  Political experience, maybe, but that is vastly different than actually getting to the point where you know you will get something accomplished when you are on the other side of the campaigning, when you are on the other side of the election in general and sitting in The Oval Office.

Most if not all politicians have made promises, broken promises.  They did not know what it would take to actually steer this ship.  Their intentions were good but they lacked the experience that now President Donald J. Trump has exhibited in so many other areas that it surprises me that anyone would doubt that those proven strategies he used in business and his life wouldn’t transition to running our country.

The result of a practice proves its validity, not how loudly it is promoted.

I can’t wait to see where we are 4, no 8 years from now.  I feel positive that his words about him being re-elected will come to pass.  Because the people that are now against him will indeed have a self realization that they are indeed better off.  With that said it’s not a 4 year job, it’s an 8 year career that will define President Trump and our country for eternity.

It is so strange how the sentiment going into this presidency is so contrary to where our feelings were in 2008, then 2012.  Personally I saw the change that former President Barack Obama promised.  One man should not be expected to change all that is not right in the world, unity is where that change takes place.  We are far from united. Can we get to that place?  Yes, we can.

It won’t be easy but let me tell you what separates President Trump from most any former president.  His recognition and boldness in proclaiming that with the strength of God, Christ will guide and direct him and his administration in the proper way.  It’s not that Obama didn’t feel the same but he sure wasn’t very public about it.  He was not wanting to offend anyone and that just won’t work anymore.  If we think we can do it on our own then God will let us do it on our own.  But when we ask Him to guide us, to hold our hand, He will do everything He can to allow us to realize His will for our lives.  It works on an individual basis just as it will work when it comes to lining the United States of America up with God’s will.  We just have to always remember that God was never lost in this deal. We were.  Maybe we are The Prodigal Country. Let us find our way back. We can do it together, we are The United States of America.

May God bless you. – J. E.

  1. Hello All! I have submitted on the WhiteHouse.Gov website a reflection for Mr. President. I wanted to repost the message here as I have asked that he or his staff comment on my post when and if they stop by.

    Here is the original message:

    On the day of your inauguration I put a post on my blog. I would like to have you read it and please always remember where your strength comes from.

    Here is the link:

    I have followed you for many years Mr. President. I know you have what it takes. I believe in you.

    I am going to post this very message to my blog in the comments section of my post.

    1. Great question. I am scattered with my thoughts on that to be honest. I would like to say though that I know that the signers of our constitution had the best of intentions. I wonder if the constitution was being written for the first time [today] if that would be something that wouldn’t be argued out of existence due to the web and social media and everybody having their say. We live in a passive, I am going to do my own thing society and I’m gonna check you if you offend me is the norm. Which seems like an oxymoron if you ask me. Passivity and checking.

      One more thought: It can’t be a total separation, because In God We Trust was also what we were founded on.

      1. I would also guess that if the constitution was made today it probably wouldn’t be there. And In God We Trust was actually added in much later (1956), and replaced the previous motto E pluribus unum (Out of many, one). This change was a Cold War strategy actually!

  2. You are on point! Ok so listen, I wasn’t actually referring to that as being part of the constitution, reading it back it may have seemed so though. I was trying to convey that God has always been a part of America, the further separated we are in that regard the more divided we become as a nation. Can we agree on that?
