Space Station Reflection

Tonight the space station flew right over our home about 9 p.m.  It was headed north northeast and it was the brightest thing in the sky.  It was BIG!  My neighbors told me it was bigger than a football field.  It looked like we could almost reach out and touch it.  It was amazing to see it.  It was moving so fast that it was only visible for about 4 minutes.  It was a blast seeing it.

As I reflected on what I saw I thought about all of the things that motivated man to go into space. I started thinking about all of the good that has come out of it.  Lots of new products that have given many of us a better life, such as computers and the Internet.

I can remember back to J. F. Kennedy's speech when he thrust the USA into the space program in the early '60's.  I was just a youngster in grade school when Kennedy challenged us to be The world leader.  In part, he wanted us to catch the Russians but he had a far greater vision than playing catch up. President Kennedy challenged us to put a man on the moon.

At the time he set that goal NO ONE thought it was possible. That concept was unheard of back then, yet there it was.  He said we could do it and he challenged the country to make it happen.

Great Leaders cast great visions that many, if not most, don't believe can be done.  President Kennedy did challenged us and 50 years later we have been to the moon repeatedly, we have men circling the globe in a space station and has been for years.

Today, we need a Great Leader to cast a great vision to turn America around. We need a leader to call us to repentance and to cast a vision to restore our integrity and our place of world leadership.  America can be great again but only if we humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways.

It starts with me and you.
