Today is probably the only day in the history I will even mention politics on this here blog of mine. And I’m really not even going to mention them today. I’m not going to tell you who I voted for or who I think you should vote for. To be honest, I am tired of the hateful Facebook rants and the judgmental accusations of others regarding one’s political beliefs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m passionate about my decision, but what I am more passionate about than “my candidate” is unity and the knowledge that God is in control. And He is so much bigger than what will happen today. A few weeks ago I would debate with the best of them regarding what little I knew about the issues at hand. I would worry and worry about what would happen if fill-in-the-blank doesn't win. But you know what I have realized – better yet what God has taught me? My hope is not in this world. My hope is not in the government of the United States. My hope is not in the leaders of our country. Do I support them and pray for them? Yes. But I do not rest my hope in them. No. They would, and will, all disappoint me and let me down. They are human, aren't they? My hope is in God. And today, whatever happens I know that ultimately God is in control, come what may. So any of you fellow American readers out there – if you haven’t already voted, I hope you will today. Come to a decision, whatever that may be, and make a choice. It is our God-given privilege and I believe our responsibility. After that, just be grateful. Grateful that life goes on after Election Day. Grateful that God is bigger than our government. And grateful that Christmas commercials will soon take the place of annoying political ads!
Happy Election Day Sweet Friends!
