There are times that the Lord will allow things to happen to get our attention. Sometimes we take our focus off of our heavenly Father and put it on other things. Distractions! Distractions!
The Lord sometimes want us to spend quiet times with Him. Just He and us. Alone. Communicating with Him and no one else. Give up taking all the attention onto oneself, and politics and put more of it on God. Just me and you Lord! Praising Him!
