We are we are broken people (we are some broken people)
just trying to make it on our own (yet we try to make it)
we are we are broken people (we are some broken people)
and yet we are not alone (only cause of you we’re not alone)
Now this aint how it’s supposed to be
cause mom and dad really wasn’t supposed to leave
but now divorce what they chose to seek
and now they see the kids every other week
and this aint how it supposed to end
cause when they started out they was best friends
but how it begins aint how it ends
sometimes that’s how the story spins
what do you do now what do you say
when people drift apart and they walk away
starting over make us all afraid
dealing w/ remorse plus a ton of shame
but there’s a cure for ya ton of pain
there’s hope and healing now in his grace
and there’s a place where you see his face
where he makes beauty out our mistakes
This aint the way the way she went and planned it
but little by little she they took it all for granted
just another story on our little planet
a little compromise break a few commandments
so the baby’s coming she starts to panic
contemplates all her choices and then examines
all the voices trying to tell her just to take advantage
of the fact she could abort it like it never mattered
but she struggles just to understand it
feeling lost confused and a little damaged
she knew his life was the thing that matters
so he grows kind of like a seed that’s planted
it was hard but she always managed
even when the problems never seem to vanish
she looks at his fingers and the little hand prints
she might be broken but shes gonna manage
We are broken cause we are sinful
we are a messed up type of people
just living in a world that’s quite deceitful
but there’s a way out if you let Him lead you
you see he promises to never leave you
everything you’re facing he would be through
its blatant that we really need you
even in our storms we can see you

I’m talking about the President of the United States, “President Trump”!
What is it about this man so many people don’t like? Why are they so angry?
Yes, he is arrogant.
Yes, he calls people names.
Yes, he’s abrupt.
Yes, he’s done things in his past, “before” he was president, that maybe he’s not so proud of.
Yes, he’s not a politician, he’s a businessman.
YES, HE IS FLAWED, HE IS A REFLECTION OF SOCIETY, in today’s world. And YES, this is why people are angry, because he is showing the parts of themselves that are not so nice, the uncouth side of society.
What are you judging him for? You who are without sin, cast the first stone. “When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7 How many of you haven’t said an unkind word toward someone else, called them a name, were abrupt and arrogant, or even done something you wouldn’t want others to know about. EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US!
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Matthew 7:1-2
Take the plank out of your own eye first. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:3-5
God makes presidents and kings. “And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding”. Daniel 2:21
During Daniel’s time leaders were mostly called kings, but in today’s society we have presidents and prime ministers. Perhaps we need to recognize God’s movements – HE IS IN CONTROL.
My Grandma used to have a Scottish saying, which was probably used when I was acting up and being unreasonable, “O wad some Power the giftie gie us, to see oursels as ithers see us!” Which in English says, “Oh would some Power the gift give us, to see ourselves as others see us.” Think about this, maybe President Trump is God’s gift to us to let us see ourselves as we are and how others see us. To let us see how ridiculous we really look and sound, perhaps it’s a second chance to redeem ourselves to being the people He really wants.
It’s not too late, God allows U-Turns. Maybe we can try and see God’s movements in the President and celebrate the good he is trying to bring to the American people. Reject the bad. But realize that God is trying to give America a second chance. A country that was once blessed by God, can be again. Many can try and push their own agenda and ideas out there, but just remember
GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL.
“God is still on the throne, and He will remember His own.”
Are you one of theirs or are you one of God’s?
