It Was Inevitable.

As we face an uncertain future in politics - our current President has come out in favor of gay marriages. A whole host of people have risen to the occasion, with sadness, in opposition to him.  But let's be honest, you had to see this one coming.  And, I do believe that gay marriages can become a reality in this country unless there is a sovereign move of God in this land. Some may scoff at this, but it isn't impossible.  I believe that it is time for the church to begin to seek the impossible, improbably and the unbelievable from God.  Desperate people do desperate things.  Desperate Christians, first of all and foremost, pray - desperately!
