Beating My Drum

March 26, 2023

It seems like I’m beating the same drum lately, but I feel it is an important thought for us as Christians to remember, so I plan to keep on beating this drum for as long as it takes. We live in perilous times, and it seems that danger and uncertainty continue to accelerate as the days and weeks pass. Tensions all around the world are increasing while meanwhile back on the ranch, instead of trying to figure out ways to ease the tensions, the politicians and lawmakers in Washington would rather keep bickering among themselves while trying to have political opponents investigated and arrested so they can get re-elected so the cycle of stupidity can continue. I know I am about to show my age here, but the situation in our world reminds me of a song that was popular when I was growing up. Billy Joel released a song in 1973 titled “Piano Man” and that song contains a line that, to me, sums up the political climate in our country. “And the waitress is practicing politics as the businessmen slowly get stoned” pretty much tells us all we need to know. The politicians keep on politickin’, while the rest of the country sits back and watches it happen. Believe it or not, this little post isn’t about politics, but the table needed to be set so I could beat my drum. While all the hoopla is going on around the world, can I remind us that despite all the universal upheaval and uncertainty GOD IS STILL ON HIS THRONE? No matter what happens anywhere in the world, including right here in the good ole’ USA, God will STILL be on His throne! I must admit that while I am apprehensive about the uncertainty in our world as well as the volatile personalities of many world leaders in power at the moment, just knowing God is in control of everything eases my tension and helps remind me that there are more important items on my agenda than world politics. God is on His throne now and will be on His throne after the present world situation is settled one way or the other. You know what? This world and ALL THAT IS IN IT will one day be burned up. Period. End of story. My focus needs to be on the fact that one day, Jesus will return and brother, when that day happens, we aren’t going to care about who is in the oval office, what China is doing, or how much the price of gas is! I am a citizen of King Jesus’ kingdom, and He has plenty of work to keep me busy. If you are Christ follower, He will keep you busy too! Let’s keep our minds on the important things, the eternal things, and let’s be busy making much of Jesus, because we will take THAT with us into eternity!

Be blessed and be a blessing . . . Bro. Andy
