NM Votes For Governor: Will it Be Lujan Grisham or Pearce?



Will Pearce win? Will Lujan Grisham win? This race for Governor in New Mexico has seen millions of dollars spent. How much money will be spent trying to win this office? It is shame that all this money has to be spent on those tv and radio ads! But I guess this is what American politics has come down to, who can spend the most??!!??

God is the only one who can change things. Money rules politics. God rules everything. The Republicans have held the office of Governor in New Mexico with Susana Martinez and before that the Democrats had the office with Bill Richardson, both failed in helping New Mexico solve its awful problems from murder to child welfare. Children being murdered!!! We are losing our children!!! Poverty, people are hungry, homelessness, drugs, alcohol, and on and on……

The Democrats and Republicans always say they have the answer, but it turns out to be more of the same.  Look what they have done to our Country! We are so very divided. So much hate.

It is time for me to listen to Johnny Cash sing, “The Ragged Old Flag” We are a hurting nation, we are in the critical care unit. We have allowed politics to rule our Country and not God.

Politics is never the answer, JESUS is always the answer! America is going through times that are tougher than Watergate, the Vietnam War……a divided nation will not stand. We are closer to the edge.


I am so very thankful to the Lord that I have gotten to know Lynn Stoneking of Windom, Minnesota. I got to know her through her Dad, Gene Duerksen who with his wife Margaret have evangelized for years! Lynn and her hubby Thomas have picked up the baton now from Gene and Margaret and are running the race in such a dynamic way for our Lord. By the way, I have heard Lynn sing and she sings like no other! WOW!
This family minsters to me and Sharon is such a loving way!


I’m not sure – to be honest.

Some of us don’t allow the recent Supreme Court nomination drama to affect us. Others of us are glued to every news outlet and radio program and newspaper/website article – to see varying reports…but no one is sure of anything.

Ford vs. Kavanaugh.
Republicans vs. Democrats
MeToo vs HimToo
I Believe Her vs I Believe Him
I Believe them Both.

So – who will win?

I believe the answer will be: NO ONE.

No one is going to win from the happenings these past 10+ days.
Everyone is ‘mad as hell!’ for their side – or just in general.
Tears are flowing from Hurt and Anger and lack of Understanding one another.
Respect has been gained – Respect has been lost.
Trust has been gained – Trust has been lost.
Emotions are high – Common sense is Low.

Lives will Never be the same again.
Hurts will linger for a long time.
Reputations have been damaged or destroyed.
Relationships will hopefully be restored among disagreeing friends…but how long will we hold on to anger?

It is in moments like these that I consciously have to remind myself that this World holds Nothing for me – Eternally.
And it’s not because of whom I put my Trust in on this Earth.
It is because of WHOM I put my Trust in OUTSIDE of this Earth.

GOD – the Almighty, the Father, Alpha & Omega – is the only one who knows the Full Truth.
Am I able to Rest in that Fact?

Sometimes – I fall into the thinking that Change in this world is all on my shoulders, on Our shoulders. But it’s in those moments that I unconsciously place myself AS GOD. ‘If I don’t do it, it won’t get done!’

And it is in those moments – that I am Wrong.

And so I Pray.

I pray – for all involved in our Gov’t decisions; for all men and women hurting from abuse and violence; for children who don’t understand the circumstances surrounding their parents, or lack of parents.

I pray – for Counselors and Therapists left to help ‘work through’ the carnage left behind from hurtful words and actions and selfish moments.

I pray that God will direct Me in Wisdom, to make Good choices For the Benefit of All Those Around Me.
I pray – that Each person on this Earth will one day experience the Freedom that I have experienced in having Jesus Christ as my Best Friend, my Lord and Savior.

I say this because He reminds me in His Word that the things that happen here on Earth are only but a breath – compared to the Majesty and Glory and Praises that all Believers have awaiting for us in Beautiful Heaven, someday.

Friends – Let us pray for Wisdom – to make Helpful Decisions;
Let us use our Common Sense.
Let us Stand Up for the Oppressed;
Let us Not Convict until Proven Guilty.
Let us Give Grace to Everyone.
Let us Recognize that many of us are Hurting – in one way or another.

There’s only One Way to Win.
Have you Won, yet?

FGGAM just received this from the National Day of Prayer:


Where is the truthfulness in America today? The version of the truth you are presented with depends on the website you read or television network you watch. This same reality is observed on almost every political issue.For those of us who are Christ followers, we must be very careful not to get pulled in by any of these forces. I am one hundred percent for being aware of what is happening in our world, but we need to be careful and discerning.


1. Truthfulness is not in the eyes of the spectator.

2. Truthfulness is not determined by your preferred news media.

3. Truthfulness is not discovered through the rumor mill.

4. Truthfulness is not defined or re-defined by any politician or political party.

5. Truthfulness is not one thing to one person and another thing to another person.

6. Truthfulness is not fluid.

7. Truthfulness is not human-centered.


1. Truthfulness is found only in the Bible and what it says.

2. Truthfulness is in Jesus Christ and Him alone.


We do not determine what truth is through the lens of a political party, a news outlet, or any segment of the culture.

We do determine what is happening in the culture through the lens of the Bible and what it says.

We should always be Bible-based, Jesus-centered, and Holy Spirit-empowered people.

Anything less than this will blur our eyes to seeing the real truth about anything and it will skew our perspective.

Any time we diminish the Bible and what it says, we sit down on the slippery slide that will take us to where America is living today.

God has a better way.
