I love our country. I love that we have the freedom to choose
our leaders, the freedom to worship how we choose, the opportunity
to improve our lives through hard work, and that there is
justice for all. Our country is not perfect by any means,
but there is no other place I'd rather live! I am looking
forward to voting on election day and adding my voice to those
of many others across our nation as we choose leaders
for the next four years.
"I have always given it as my decided opinion
that no nation had a right to intermeddle in the
concerns of another; that everyone had a right
to form and adopt whatever government they
like best to live under themselves."
We have the opportunity to choose our government
tomorrow, thanks to the sacrifice of many, many people
over the last 236 years. What a blessing that is!
Of course, I hope that the people I vote for will win! But no
matter who wins, God is still in control. I read these verses
a few weeks ago and they were an encouragement to me.
Do not put your trust in princes,
in mortal men, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD his God,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them-
the LORD, who remains faithful forever.
