Every blog I click on I expect a political post. I don’t want to disappoint anyone so here goes.
Is anyone really surprised? I can’t say that I am. Although I had hoped and prayed and hoped and prayed that the outcome would be different. Now that it’s over, we can get on with our lives! Anyone else tired of all the political commercials?
I know that we are disappointed, but this didn’t bring God by surprise. He knew exactly what was going to happen. I know He hears and answers our prayers, but this time the answer was, “No”. Now what do we do? We keep praying! We need to pray for Obama’s salvation and that he would seek God’s wisdom. I know God can change him, however, Obama would have to let Him. If he doesn’t go God’s way, we might be in for some hard times, but who said we should always have it easy? I believe this election just might be what brings us back to God.
The other thing we need to do is be respectful and make our children be respectful. My kids were horribly disappointed. In fact Shaylee said, “Let’s move to Egypt”! (I don’t know why she thinks it would be better there! 🙂 ) I explained to them that we still must respect him as the President of the United States even though we can’t respect what he stands for. I’m not trying to be super-spiritual, but I really don’t like some of the jokes going around. God allowed this man to be elected and we must accept that.
So there’s my soapbox for today!
Oh, yeah, and I’m STILL PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!!!!
