Democrate, Republican, Libertarian, whatever...
Tomorrow (Tuesday) is election day. I want to urge you to vote. Make your voice known. I'm not going to tell you who to vote for. I just hope you vote your convictions. As for my vote, I judge all candidates by how they line up with my Holy scriptures... period.
Now, if you're anything like me, all this campaigning and prognostications by both ends of the spectrum of the media has me, well, a bit anxious! I had to take a vacation from the news for a few days, because quite honestly, I thought they were all going to give me a heart attack, or at the very least sick. No kidding. I was making myself sick. Never before had I been affected this way. Then, I read a facebook post by Kay Arthur (I love her, by the way) and this blessed my anxious heart. I'm quoting the post here so, if you're like me this year, it may be of a blessing to you also, because God did not give us the spirit of fear:
"I got up this morning feeling anxious. Like you, I have prayed and prayed for America and for our return to God, our future as a nation. I have been all over the Bible from Genesis 18:22 -33 pleading as Abraham plead for Sodom and Gomorrah - to Luke 18 (which I’m writing a course on) and the persistent widow. THEN THIS MORNING it all turned to peace and praise. I've petitioned and petitioned a
s He tells us, reminding Him of His character, power and promises, and all the petitions we've made for years before His throne.
It’s enough! I don’t know what is going to happen but I know my God and I rest in His Sovereignty!
The tightness, the angst is gone. Peace and joy fill my heart. I’ve been in Isaiah for several days…try it – go from Isaiah 40-45 and highlight all God tells you about Himself. Look at the end of Isaiah 44 and move into 45 – where God tells about a king, Cyrus, that doesn’t even know God, a king God will put on the throne of Media/Persia who will in about 150 years become His instrument to restore Israel to the land!
Join me, precious faces, in worshiping, bowing before the Sovereign God who promises you Romans 8:28-33…
I love you…. Kay"
I'd like to add a scripture that has meant a lot to me also. It's Proverbs 16:33
Love you all, Big Bird haters and lovers alike.
