The LORD was moved by prayer for the land. – 2 Samuel 24:25
Most of my friends say they will be glad when this election is finally OVER. I took advantage of early voting and voted by mail. I was done with the campaign after I voted – after all, I’d done everything I could possibly do, right?
Was there another person I could persuade to see things my way? Well, I didn’t think there was, but God apparently wanted me to meet up with some folks who were still wavering on the fence. One was ready to forfeit her right to vote this time around. We had a good conversation – she told me how she felt about both candidates and I asked a few simple questions. I think I helped her see how not voting is not helping matters.
Voting is probably the most personal of all things we do in life. Just as some people choose to keep their faith to themselves and practice in private – some people are that way about their political views. I tend to clam up if I’m in mixed company and the subject of politics comes up – but I can be the big mouth in a group if I’m with like-minded people.
Women should remember that it’s important to exercise their RIGHT to vote because that right was not always there!
If you’re a woman making the decision NOT to vote, regardless of your party or candidate, remember that just a short 96 years ago some very brave and incredibly strong women won a long hard-fought battle to grant you the ability to do so. To sit at home, complaining about your country and the path it’s going down and NOT exercising your right to vote, is a slap in the face to those women and women everywhere. – Bridget Montgomery
For me it’s like this: there will be no politics in Heaven. Political rallies and campaigns will not take place beyond the pearly gates. If you ever needed an incentive for going to Heaven… there it is. I’m joking – there are better incentives than that!
I have one observation to inject here – for what it’s worth. It’s well-known that blue is the democratic color and red is the republican color. What do you get when you mix those two colors? PURPLE!!! What does purple represent? It represents ROYALTY. Christ Jesus is KING and how wonderful if America was not red or blue, but PURPLE!!! Let’s bow down to King Jesus regardless of whether blue or red is at the helm of this country.
God loves everyone regardless of political affiliation. He loves liberals, conservatives, and everyone in-between. That’s the truth that will help our country to heal after this election. Somebody is going to lose this thing. It’s important that we don’t let the hurt destroy our souls in the process. The differences between liberals and conservatives are clear, but we must remember that God doesn’t see our political affiliation and beliefs… God sees a soul that will either turn to Him for help or will not.When the election is over… will you trust GOD to hold your world together? The ultra rich people running for President of the United States are not able to save us, you know. They may have programs and plans that you feel will benefit our country, but they can’t save you. Only God, through His only Son, Christ Jesus can save you now and for eternity.
At this point, we don’t know who our President will be… but we know without a doubt that God knows who it will be… and that is comforting! He knows how this will go down and what lies ahead… because He’s already there – in the future!
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. – Hebrews 11:8
Here’s a prayer from http://www.hopeforthebrokenhearted.com/
Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords! You know the truth. What will you do about it? You have a choice to accept God’s love and the sacrifice of Christ, or reject it. The proverbial ball is in your court. Have a blessed day. 🙂
