As I journaled this morning, the thought came to me that this isn't the end, but rather the beginning. Just as the wedding day is not the culmination of a relationship, neither is an election. We're making a choice today that will affect us for generations to come. We're giving our stamp of approval on a course of action for the country. That's a heavy responsibility, folks.
As in all areas of life, God will hold us accountable for our decisions. Yes, He forgives when we repent, but those consequences have a nasty bite.
Please set aside the passions, the rhetoric, and look at the issues. Pray. And then, please vote.
Our Father, which art in Heaven
Hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
In earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever.
God can speak to our hearts, but we have a choice to obey or disobey. It is our hands that will cast the ballot.
