             American Political Polarization                      A New Mental Illness   It is May and it it currently Mental Health Awareness Month. I decided to write a few blogs on the subject. Including that I think that America is dealing with a mental illness itself. That mental illness is called, Political Polarization or for short, Poli-polar       Poli-Polar is a devastating severe mental illness. Signs and Symptoms of Poli-Polar are the following Trouble Sleeping at night, nightmares Excessive focus on news and shows focused on political programming Hating people of the opposing Political team that you are on Engaging in Political discrimination and thinking all people of the opposite party are exactly the same and evil Most time is consumed on how to fight the other party and to expose them Hate is more in your heart then love Thinking only the good people are on your Political Party Deleting friends on Social Media because of their Political Party Not allowing others to ha

                   Do Everything In Love

                      Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14

    
     I think this a perfect verse to meditate on when things in the world seem to be falling apart. When there is protests and a political divide that promotes division and hate. I have strong political views but when I started consuming the news more then the word of God it made me into a bitter person and a
seed of resentment started growing in my heart.  We are supposed to guard our heart so letting that seed weed pop in my heart was making me sick. Once I started consuming less of Political intake I starting feeling so happy. I will still vote and I will not change my political views but I am not letting it consume me. 
       Now I am able to see people differently that comes from a political stance than me and to not see them as the enemy but to see them as a person and to love them. 

      Since I was little I loved watching Miss America. Usually, when then they win the title of Miss America, they have a platform to represent. Whether that be helping with disabled people, orphans, or helping people with cancer. We have a platform when we take the title and Crown of the Daughter Of The King.  The Platform is JESUS.  We will now be promoting his Kingdom. That is our priority. We will be a representative of him. He will be our priority. 

       What is Love? What is Hate? The world has defined what these words mean.  The definition of hate has been turned into a Political word meaning anything that does not line up with your political views. Christians can now be accused of hate speech by just reciting scriptures. Love has been completely distorted as well. Let us look at what Love really is.

1 Corinthians 13 1
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

     As Daughters of the King, we should stand out in the world proclaiming his name. Politics or other Issues are not our platform and not our message. When people think of us, they should not think of some angry political person but they should think of a person that is filled with LOVE. When the world is going crazy let us not go with the flow of the world. We should have love illuminating out of us wherever we go. Not the mushy worldly distorted love of this world but a Real Love, A Supernatural Love that can only come from the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us go against the flow and stand out holding a banner of Love
