Now what?


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!

    Yes, I thought there was going to be posts everywhere too! 🙂 The phrase that keeps sticking in my mind is, “God is STILL in control!” I’m glad it’s over too!

    I agree. I’m glad it’s over – now let’s move on. Darrell said to me last night – “this doesn’t change our life purpose at all.” Thank God he’s bigger than all that.

    Yeah, I decided not to post anything, especially when Jared told me how happy he was that Obama won (and had actually been rooting for him from the get-go)! 8( Ugh!

  5. I agree. I’m tired of the whining (see my post…spoiled america :)) We can’t always have the man WE want in the White House. That’s what is so great about America! And how many churches do you know that are praying for revival? Does revival come with easy times? Okay, I’m off MY soapbox (for the moment :))

    Well to no one’s surprise I am (and proud of it) a rock throwing, card carrying republican. My late husband even when he had a dementa told the Dr. that the pres. who said “vote for me there will be a chicken in every pot” was “a doggone democrat”. So….I will never be okay with Obama winning, he is dangerous and he will never be my president. Anyone who set in that so called church of his and heard that radical junk is a racist and I’m scared to death of him. I have a good friend who is a retired democrat state senator and she would not vote for him because she knows that he is a sleeping muslim. go figure.
