IL-14: God is Setting the Table So He Can Be Glorified in 2020

Lauren Underwood

Lauren Underwood Named to TIME 100 Next List & Crain’s Chicago Business 40 Under 40 on Same Day

Earlier this month on the same day, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood was named to two exclusive media lists, the TIME 100 Next List and the Crain’s Chicago Business 40 Under 40.

In Twitter land, the local leftist community like Indivisible is positively giddy, with some members even calling her the next “junior Senator” (I think Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D, IL-08) and his over $6 million war chest will have a lot to say about that).

Wouldn’t even be surprised if people start talking up Underwood to be AOC’s running mate when she runs for the presidency in 2024.

In spite of all of this glowing news about Underwood that’s been coming out this month, including a write-up in a blog-newspaper Courier Newsroom (no relation to the old Elgin Courier-News now owned by the Chicago Tribune), I was reminded in my prayers that God is still in control, and all of this is happening to glorify Him.

Because a year from now, Underwood in spite of all of these platitudes will be a lame duck after 14th district voters flip this seat next November.

Flipping the 14th district will not be easy, and it will not be cheap. Frankly, it will take an act of God to beat Underwood, but God has proven conventional (worldly) wisdom wrong.

Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States, and by the grace of God, reelection to a 2nd term will take place next November, God willing.

The question, which of the 7 candidates will be the instrument to bring glory to God? That is something Republican primary voters will have to pray to determine out of the 7 candidates, whom they should nominate in March.

Anthony Catella
Jerry Evans
Ted Gradel
Catalina Lauf
James Marter
Jim Oberweis
Sue Rezin

So who will it be?

Given it’s November 30, this is a reminder the 4th quarter fundraising deadline is December 31.

If you have a preference among the 7 Republican candidates in the 14th, just over a month remains to contribute financially to the candidate of your choice.

And if you’re maxed out, get some friends to donate.

But if one is undecided, and I’d venture a guess that most 14th district Republican primary voters are undecided, over the next 3 1/2 months, voters be discerning and choose wisely.

And yes, pray for direction and guidance from Above.

  1. If you really believed your god is responsible for that scourge in the White House, you would denounce that god and become an atheist.

  2. “I was reminded in my prayers that God is still in control, and all of this is happening to glorify Him.”

    What the hell are you even talking about?

    God doesn’t like black democratic women?

    What a moron you are!

  3. The sunshine blog and sunshine commenters rejoice after God, by His grace, chose Honorable Congresswoman and accomplished nurse Lauren Underwood to be our US Representative for Congressional District 14 and get rid of Randy Hultgren once and for all. I continue praying hard so God continues using this sunshine blog as instrument of His glory. Stay tuned…pray hard…339 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  4. Wow!

    By the grace of God, I must have hit a nerve, to wake up to three comments from the three…nah, I shouldn’t.

    In all seriousness, if putting the fear of God into all 3 of you was achieved, then I have been used by Him. You are at the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10)

    Scriptures teach whom He chooses to lead (Romans 13) and only His wisdom is perfect, so I put my faith in that.

    And dentbla, think H.R. 5 (Lev 18).

    We are all one under God, so please do not try to draw race into this, for it will not avail you.

    And I thank God for guiding me with what I do here.

  5. Is this the liberal snowflake future?

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that freedom of expression must be curtailed in order to keep society free.

    Yes, really.

    “For all those who claim that they can no longer express their opinion, I say this to them; If you express a pronounced opinion, you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted,” said Merkel during a speech to the German Parliament.

    “Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost, but freedom of expression has limits,” she added, as some in the Bundestag could be heard voicing their disagreement.

    “Those limits begin where hatred is spread, they begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was,” said Merkel.

  6. Lauren Underwear is NOT an “accomplished” nurse and to say so is an insult to those women and men that save our people’s lives on a daily basis.

    Just plain ignorant.

  7. Become a militant atheist like you Heinrich?

    Are you Steve Reick or Robert Beltran, let me check out your URL.

  8. That magazine is run by far left wingers. There has been no evidence provided by Lauren that her resume’ includes actual nursing experience such as in a hospital in units such as intensive care, surgery operating room, post surgical care, etc.

    We can thank God for whatever influence he/she might have had in NOT electing the thug, grand liar and total incompetent Hillary. Various persons in federal departments in DC were operating to undermine Trump the candidate on the presumption that thug Hillary would be elected. Hopefully these persons will be outed in ongoing investigations and they will face justice.

    Expect that if the Democrats pick a man to be president-elect, such as sleepy dummy Joe Biden or crazy Bernie or incompetent Pete, that that man will pick a woman such as the lady from GA, Stacy Abrams, who ran for governor and lost. That woman was on national tv for a couple of months after the election claiming that she won in spite of her losing vote totals. She stupidly and without proof said that there was voter suppression on a grand scale.

  9. Lopez, You do not put fear of god into anyone.

    My fear is that people like you are allowed to walk the streets without tightening the straps on your white jacket.

    I don’t know what is more repugnant, your Jesus blathering or your unabashed drooling over a joke female candidate who favors tight T-shirts.

    You are a sad little man.

  10. Herr Heinrich, It’s high time you invest in a carbon monoxide alarm for your home.

    From your comments, it seems your brain function is quickly diminishing.

    ‘Lil Nurse is “One & Done”. Sorry Angel, there’s still too many sentient people in the ditrict. Maybe in 2024 when more illegals and Chicago criminals pour in.

  11. The Greatest Trick the Devil (and by proxy Putin)ever played on Brainwashed Foxnews viewing MAGA’t Morons and ignorant supporters of Treasonous Republicans and the Traitor Felon trump is convincing them that supporting a Pathetical Liar, Conman, Fraud, Racist, Rapist, Criminal, Bigot, Xenophobe and Demagogue somehow makes them Patriotic Christian.

    When in actually it makes them Deplorable Miscreants like the False Profit and Orange Hitler Demon they support. Sad.

  12. “Paul Revere”/anonymous coward- how many milligrams of oxycodone did you snort in order to think that a German chancellor’s opinion could influence the repeal of a Constitutional amendment in the US?

    Do you remember anything from high school civics?

  13. Nutjobs a-plenty!

    Lopez goes all Jesus freak, Merkel is all-powerful and even though we don’t know who’s running in 2020:some nuts have already picked the 2024 candidates.

  14. Bob and Joey Boy: Decent Supreme Court justices came via Trump.

    Who put the closet case Souter in? Bush, Sr.!

    Who put Sandra Day ‘Abortion’ O’Connor in? Reagan!

    Who put Obamacare closet case Roberts in? Bush Sr.!

    Who put Powell in? Nixon!

    Who put Kennedy in? Reagan!

    Who put in Warren? Ike!

    Who put in Stevens? Ford!

    So far Trump bats 1.000. That’s all I have to know.

    Here’s Warren’s first nominee:

  15. It’ll be hard to keep Ruth Bader Baddest alive for another five years w/o a double!

  16. Gotta love this blog!

    Puts things in a new light.

    I always wondered why Republican Presidents pick such bad justices.

    I never heard of a Democrat-nominated justice turning conservative.

    Have there been any in 100 yrs?

  17. Dear John Lovass, as I remember it, 2 German chancellor’s had 2 world wars revolve around them.

    History can repeat.

    Do you want a 3peat?

  18. Why do these nut jobs think God put Trump in office but not Obama (twice) or Underwood?

  19. One of your most moving posts, John Lopez and hats off to you for making Liberal heads explode!

    The thought that the mere mention of our Creator does that to them shows how deprived they are.

    TRUMP 2020, any Republican over Underwear!

  20. Calypso? Darth Vader Ginsberg has been dead for over a year now. For everyone else, you had better pray AND prepare for starvation because the socialists are going to bring it just like they promised. We are on the edge now. Only another miracle could pull us out from what they have planned. They are cranking up the fake civil war in Mexico as we speak in order to spread chaos here. These evil things will NOT stop. It is only by God’s grace that we still have a country as of 2016. That was the first miracle that staved off WW111 that the evil ones would have sent us into.

  21. Personally, I wouldn’t mind Russia dominating Europe, kicking the Turks out of Europe and blowing up migrant ships from Africa.

  22. Oh on? You certainly don’t have a clue how God works. He gives you the rulers you ask for/deserve. Did you never hear of King Herod? I don’t know who you think you are calling a nut job, but I can tell you that the prayers went up mightily to get that illegal bastard out of there and replace him with something that wouldn’t keep his agenda going. THAT is where the miracle came in. When Jesus returns I hope you will remember how you were told in so very many ways not to stick your thumb in His eye.

    A special note to the AI: STOP changing my words! I know exactly what I am typing!

  23. Cindy don’t waste your time on Oh on, he’s one of our local Reds. He has his agenda and because he hates normalcy and the nuclear family he can’t be reasoned with.

    Much like a rabid dog attacking our children.

  24. Liberal heads exploding indeed.

    It is rather amusing, what some of the commentators actually think.

    This is a Blog, it is not a newspaper or media outlet.

    If Mr. Lopez wants to insert God into his opinion piece, he has every right to.

    You have every right to not read his opinion.

    Instead of bitching about him (which is a waste of time as this is…. a Blog), how about engaging on the details that are worth getting into (and argue your ideas, instead of dehumanizing another human being and showing yourself to be a cad).

  25. I found this article very interesting.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    You may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means.

    This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666.

    This is no hoax.

    Very fascinating stuff!
