Not Me but Thee

Lord, as I begin this day,
Have it Your way.
I seek not me, but Thee.

When bitter valley threaten,
And I count the cost,
I choose not me, but Thee.

In the dark night.
Trace Your path upon my heart,
That demons, seeking to terrorize and tempt,
Meet not me, but Thee.

When gift and labor
Bring merit and reward,
All glory to, not me, but Thee.

O Lord,
May those I meet upon Your Way,
See, not me, but Thee.

Cheap Talk

For all his inaugural eloquence, President Obama can’t walk the talk. His lips say, “For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies …” Rightly, he adds, that it is, “a parent’s willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.” Yet, Barak Hussein Obama is the pre-eminent obstacle to such nurture. He refuses to nurture the unborn child within the American womb. He, in fact, supports abortion on the world stage as well. In the coming days, American dollars will once again fund the death of innocents around the world. Barak Hussein Obama, who in his inaugural decried, “those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents,”  lifted the ban that Bush reinstated in 2001 known as the Mexico City Policy. Reagan instituted this policy in 1984 to stop U.S. funds from paying for counseling, promoting abortion and providing abortions internationally. The revocation engenders “slaughtering innocents” on a grand worldwide scale. However, Obama will be even handed. He plans to empty wombs at home as well as abroad. So much for eloquence. Actions still speak louder than words.
