JP RACE: Woolbright will fight for what is right

Do you think God is watching our elected officials?

Our country seems to forget that our foundation is “In God We Trust” in our government. I am a man of faith and I am sharing a few thoughts on candidates that still trust in God. Supporting those candidates that keep God in our country dialogue is where our hearts should reside. One candidate I know, Phil Woolbright, justice of the peace candidate, is a conservative Republican, a great judge and a minister volunteer for his church. I have known candidates that run for office but most are not believers in God or don’t place God in the forefront of their campaign.

If I was in court, I would want Woolbright on the bench as a man trusting God, making sure I was treated fairly. Woolbright is so passionate about the judiciary. Coming from the perspective of a man of faith myself, it is refreshing to witness candidates that keep the same trust in God as our forefathers. It gives me encouragement when candidates display belief in God, that God is in control and that God gets the thanks and credit.

Woolbright is blessed with a humble spirit, and that is what we need in a judge. Woolbright also has a desire to fight for what is right, to fight for fairness and fights to make a difference. Woolbright is not afraid to stand alone for what is right. Woolbright holds God’s sword of justice. He has been tested by trials, and given Gods wisdom and it has made him stronger. I trust him and believe he is the one for us.

It seems at times our society has stepped away from our trust in God. We have forgotten, lost our faith and resentment starts to dwell in our fellow man. We find ourselves getting offended by the behavior of our neighbors. And we forget to pray for a better community. We lose touch with what really matters. Our sense of meditation and peace is lost. And that means we lower the quality of life.

One solution would be for us to vote into office those that believe in a higher power. That is the way it was long ago and the way it should be today. I pray for a community that has a Godly purpose.

I believe that we would have a better community if we trusted in a higher power. Woolbright is a man of prayer, faith and trust in God. I am also a man of faith and trust in God. Seek out your faith, your own trust in God and seek out the candidates keeping the faith of our forefathers. We may be better off.
