A comparison to Barack Obama doesn’t sound like something a Republican presidential candidate would welcome, but that’s what former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani did when he compared presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to the “hope” of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke Sunday on New York AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable” on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“He’s a real hope for us that our politics can really change,” Giuliani told host John Catsimatidis about Trump. “He’s a deal maker. I know that somehow people think that means compromising your principles. I think that means accomplishing your principles.”
“I think all the skills that you learn in business can easily be applied to government.” Giuliani added. “I believe he’s the better hope for America.”
“We kind of got fooled last time. I think this time we have a man who’s going to be different, a different kind of president — not from the political background.”
Giuliani’s observation is something that likely drove many Republicans to the polls after so many disappointing losses to establishment Republicans. While Trump’s campaign demeanor is nothing like Obama’s was, his ability to capture the interest of an American public desperate for change is similar.
Give your marriage to God. The last word on the matter must be God’s Word! Seeking professional help is a good thing, but until you’ve transferred ownership of your marriage into God’s hands, you haven’t exercised your best option. You say, ‘What does handing my marriage over to God mean in practical terms?’ It means two things: 1) You stop calling the shots—that’s God’s job and you must get out of His way so that He can do His work unhindered. Your self-interest and need to control must bow to His will. As long as you insist on ‘being right’ and ‘straightening out’ your spouse, you will remain part of the problem. On the other hand, when you give the problem to God, He—not you—has a problem to work on! 2) You learn how to ‘walk by faith, not by sight’ (2 Corinthians 5:7).When things feel out of control, you will want to resume ownership of the problem. Don’t do it, or the result will be more of what doesn’t work. Renew your decision to allow God to have control and work in both of your hearts. ‘Walk by faith’, not by feelings. The Psalmist puts it this way: ‘Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders—He’ll carry your load, He’ll help you out…’When you trust God to handle it, three things happen: a) you experience peace; b) your spouse’s resistance is likely to diminish because you’re no longer stirring the pot; c) God goes to work: ‘…He who began a good work in you [both] will bring it to completion…’ (Philippians 1:6).
Prayer Heavenly Father,
My marriage, my relationships, I turn over to You.
Help me stay out of the way of what You are doing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
