The day after…

Sadness, that’s the only way I can describe my response to the election results. Sadness that the American spirit I love, that I served for and that I grew up knowing… is no longer in the majority. There are numerous things that make America special and those things are the things that I see fading away.

Hopeful, that is the way I feel this morning. I have hope in things to come because they have been promised by a sovereign God. I know that Jesus reigns in heaven and that everything works for His glory. I am also hopeful because my name is written in His book of life and nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can take me from His hand.

Determined, that is my new mindset. I am determined to make changes so that my family will be taken care of. No matter the mindset of the culture around me, around my family and around my friends, I am determined to make a path of righteousness that they can follow. I am determined that I will not be the cause of the fall of my country, even if it falls, it will not be because of me or my posterity. I am determined to be the man God calls me to be for His glory.

November 7, 2012 is a new day, and I thank God he has given me this day to make a difference for Him, I will not waste it.

  1. I’m sorry you are unhappy about the decision. I am very happy about it and I am a Christian, like you. I see the Democrats as living much of what Jesus preached. Regardless of what some Christians may say, I believe that we need to take care of others first, then ourselves.

  2. Thank you for stopping by and commenting, it is always good to speak with a brother or sister in Christ. I want to ask a question and I am not asking it with any malice, it is meant to start a conversation.

    Where in the bible does Jesus tell us to have the government take from some people and then let the government take care of others?
