Can we stop teasing President Trump’s wife?
Her husband has only been in office for 5 days and you would think that he had already been destroying America for years with the amount of hate the Internet has thrown at him. And while I am not a fan of President Trump, I am mature enough to see that this is the American leader for the next four years.
Time to start getting used to it, because he isn’t going anywhere.
But I say, pray for Trump’s wife, Melania Trump.
It is not easy to the First Lady. It is not easy to be the icon of American womanhood when everyone is attacking you. It isn’t easy to be married to one of the most powerful men in the world. It can’t be easy being married to someone, and watch them go through a giant life/career change. It can’t be easy suddenly have the next four years of your life mapped out in front of you, because of the job your husband has. It can’t be easy to suddenly be thrown into responsibilities that she may not have the heart for.
I can only image that being the First Lady Of The United States is a wonderful job, giving Mrs. Trump the opportunity to do all kinds of things but it’s got to be stressful too.
Suddenly she has to share her husband with the rest of America. When America needs their leader, she is the one that is alone. When America faces a crisis or challenge, she is the one that has to be left by herself until the President can come back to her.
And consider the stress that a job change like this would have on your marriage! Marriage is a difficult thing. It takes a lot of work, time, and energy. I couldn’t image how much harder it is going to be to keep that marriage intact.
Scripture calls us to pray for our leaders, not just the ones that we vote in, but all the leaders that are in charge over us.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior” – 1 Timothy 2:1-3
Pray for our leaders. Don’t belittle them. Don’t mock them with ‘clever’ memes. God says pray for them. That means we pray for Donald Trump, we pray for Melania Trump. Whether we like them or not, whether we voted for them or not.
