Does the Constitution have what it takes to keep up with modern America? Join Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! as he hits the road to find out. Traveling across the country by motorcycle, Sagal is in search of where the U.S. Constitution lives, how it works and how it doesn’t… how it unites us as a nation and how it has nearly torn us apart.
We'll also take an online road trip to Ken's Cedar Keyside DIner in Cedar Key, Florida.

"WAIT." The idea of waiting is not a popular one. But that is precisely what GOD asks us to do. Waiting is an exercise in courage. We experience many circumstances where waiting is painful. Psalm 27 encourages us to know that HE is our light, our salvation, our refuge and our stronghold. Our FATHER promises to strengthen our hearts as we exercise courage in waiting. Let's learn to wait by waiting on the LORD. Let us experience the strengthening of our hearts that results from waiting in prayer and meditation before HIM.
(Isaiah 40:31) "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." When an eagle is on the ground it's vulnerable to attack by predators like snakes and wolves! Questions: 1) What does the eagle do to escape it's predators and how can this symbolically help us? 2) What does it means when our altitude transforms to attitude? 3) What happens if we don't stay in the presence of God? 4) What is the best remedy for the pressures of life?
Let's have an open discussion about Christian young men waiting until marriage to have sex. As Christians, do we encourage young men to wait? Or do we agree with the world's view, that it is impossible in 2014? How do we reach this generation and minister to them that God's way is the best way?
This is not the time to faint. Galatians 6:9 says, and let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Believer's the enemy is about his job of killing, stealing and destorying. Let it not be us. God has given us His word and we are overcomers through him.
Isaiah 40:29 say he giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might, he increaseth strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly faint. But they that wait upon the Lord. ..........
Jesus taught a parable in Luke chapter 18 with the intention of saving us from possible faintheartedness in prayer. He wanted to teach us to guard against negligence, while encouraging us to show persistence. Persistence in prayer is a mighty move of the soul towards God. It is the ability to hold on, press on and wait. In it is restless desire, restful patience and strength to hold on. It is so needed that it is a passion of the soul and a sheer necessity.

More than 600,000 veterans — 10% of all the Veterans Affairs patients — continue to wait a month or more for appointments at VA hospitals and clinics, according to data obtained by USA TODAY.
The VA has made some progress in dealing with the backlog of cases that forced former secretary Eric Shinseki to retire early this year. Some facilities still have extremely long wait times for basic care, including 64 that have average wait times over 60 days for new patients seeking primary care. They include major facilities, such as hospitals in Baltimore; Jacksonville, Fla.; Temple, Texas, and Atlanta. All have at least 30,000 pending appointments.
