Hey guys,

 

So I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that tomorrow we will elect the new leader of our nation. Have you been thinking about it? Are you allowing yourself to worry about the outcome? I know that I have let my mind wander down the hallway thinking about all the “what IF” possibilities. What if Hillary becomes Madam President? What if Trump becomes the face of our nation? What will happen? Will we get involved in more useless wars? Will we break the bonds we have with other nations? Will more innocent people die at the hands of an incompetent leader?

 

I have stayed away from posting anything political this entire election season. [Aside from Bad Lip Reading’s coverage of the debate. I thought that was absolutely necessary and relevant.] However, I feel like the time has come to speak up. Now, I am not going to tell you how to vote. I am not going to tell you what to believe. That is up to you and your conscience. What I want to tell you is this…it does NOT matter who wins the election. You may disagree with me and say, “But Hillary is this…” or “Trump is that…”. It does NOT matter who wins this election. Do you think that God is surprised by what’s going on in our country right now? Of course NOT. Do you think that God is concerned about this election? He already knows the outcome and He’s already finished writing the story for all of us. He knows how all of this will end.

 

Now, what we need to do is realize that we are only temporary residents on this earth. I know that can be a hard concept to grasp because right now this feels like our life. We are studying and working to become who we want to be HERE. We are trying to better ourselves so that we can have a better future HERE. But, what are we doing that will impact our eternity. It’s hard to understand that the 80 or so years we are granted on this earth are not the only years we will live. Therefore, I understand that it’s hard to see past the trials we face here. This presidential election may seem like the end of the world for a lot of you. I know I have had my share of concerns about going into the polls tomorrow morning. But, I need you to take this one piece of information away with you. It does NOT matter who wins the election tomorrow. Why? There’s a super simple explanation. God is still in control. Not Trump. Not Hillary. If we allow our hope to be anchored in the next president of the United States, then we are screwed anyway. There is no hope for the future. There is no hope for our children. There is no hope for humanity. However, the good news is that humans are ultimately not in control. Sure, they can create laws and pass bills that we may not agree with. But, you know that the Bible never said this life was going to easy. It actually warns us for times like these. There will be trials and tribulations, but we should never falter in our faith. We should never place our hope in temporary vessels.

 

So, tomorrow we elect the new leader and new face of the United States of America. No matter the outcome, this is still the land I call my home. No matter what happens, this is still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Don’t let politics come between you and your neighbor. Spread love, generosity, and kindness. Hate doesn’t have a place here. [No matter what the political advertisements might suggest.]

 

Let there be peace on Earth.
