This is a link I hope you take time to read. If you are one of those people who is questioning "how could any Christian have voted for Obama?" Then please read this. I hope it helps you to see things from another point of view, and frankly I think we all need to be a little more open to that.
If we vote our convictions that is what is important. And as my friend Liz pointed out so well a few days ago, stand up for those convictions when you feel you need to.
It doesn't matter now who I voted for, really it doesn't. I can tell you I prayed and thought harder about this election than any other. Maybe because we all seem to have so much at stake. My vote counted, but in the end... many others counted more.. and I am OK with that, because I am grateful to have a choice and the freedom to vote.
I am thankful this election is over and done and now we can more forward and begin to ask God, "how do I pray now Lord, what is next?" If you are discouraged and frustrated because your guy did not win, lets be hopeful and pray and by no means sit back and wait. If you feel strongly on an issue, do something about it.
I don't think we should be "political" once every four years. If you aren't happy, don't just complain, see what you can do to make change.
Let's pray that the change that is coming... begins in our hearts as we pray for our country and for all those who are leading it.
