Honey, where are my dress socks?

The last three days have been an amazing gift from Heaven. I can't go into a lot of details from now to the election though. I've recently discovered that the pro-choice opposition is watching my personal blog, and we don't want to release any key strategic information leading up to November 7th. Suffice it to say that I believe God has reserved secret strategy for the last minute of this season. My team and I here in South Dakota are calling an Esther fast beginning at midnight tonight. We believe this is what God has called us to do to pave the way for the hidden strategy in the last leg of the campaign. All I can say is that I believe I was in the middle of three things on Wednesday, Thursday and today that will be critical for the future of America. Now doesn't that sound all dramatic and whatnot?

I will say though that yesterday was absolutely incredible. Senator Sam Brownback from Kansas was in state, and Focus on the Family asked me to serve as his personal escort around the city of Sioux Falls and Pierre. What an honor to spend the day with him making appearances at various rallies and ceremonies. I was struck by the thought that I was driving the future president of the United States around in my Ford Expedition. Then, I got to join him on his private plane to fly to the capitol city for a Focus on the Family rally. What an unbelievable opportunity. We sat face to face on the plane for about an hour and twenty minutes and discussed all that was on his heart and mine. I am so humbled by God's goodness.

Here's a funny anecdote. Kim woke up Wednesday morning from a weird dream. In her dream, my friend from Focus on the Family called me. He said he needed me to get on the plane with Sam Brownback. We laughed about it and then went about our day. I think God was laughing at me at 2 PM when I was scrambling to get my suit together and couldn't find my dress socks to pack for the trip. The dream had literally come to pass mere hours later when my friend called to say he couldn't make it back to Sioux Falls to advance the Senator. God must have been thinking, "Dude, I gave you like seven hours to find those socks!"

Job 33:14-16 (NKJV)
For God may speak in one way, or in another,
Yet man does not perceive it.

In a dream, in a vision of the night,
When deep sleep falls upon men,
While slumbering on their beds,

Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction.
