Walls of Jericho

Good morning!

There’s a lot of noise going on around our house. We’re under construction. There’s even things collapsing, tumbling down, figuratively speaking. The walls between the kitchen and dining room in particular.

Somehow it reminded me of the old familiar song of Vacation Bible School days, Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho.

God’s power is mighty. If he is for us, then who can be against us?

It’s too bad they’ve taken God out of the classrooms and separated church from state.

We’ve had a whole lot of teachers marching and shouting around our state capitol, and a few school marching bands with horns have joined them. And a whole lot of them are Christians.

I’d certainly have enjoyed being part of round two of the Battle of Jericho.

The difference in that battle and ours is we as teachers were not at battle against our legislators. We are actually for them. We voted them into the positions they all occupy today. It’s too bad that they weren’t for us, their fellow citizens, their children, their future.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time for a little revival in our state. A little good over evil to prevail. I’d love to see some of our churches come alongside their people, their teachers and students and pray for change. For public education to rise in our state. For corruption to fall. For God’s hand in this to prevail. For us all to see his plan come to fruition.

As everyone goes back to doing their job the way they see fit, I don’t want these past two weeks to be forgotten.

We, as teachers, were powerless against our legislators, those we voted into power. Even in numbers and with support. We could not change them. They can only change themselves. Or God can.

My prayer today is for revival in our state. That we all will go home and pray. Pray for change. That our state will rise in statistics in something other than incarceration. That the land we belong to would once again be grand! And we can once again shout, you’re doing fine Oklahoma, Oklahoma, OK!

When the people heard the sound of the Rams’ horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the town and captured it. Joshua 6:20

Love and laughter,

Sandy
