BE CONTENT

You know what? My team didn't win. And while that is disheartening, I am not going to spend the next four (and possibly eight years) in a wad. Are you surprised?

Well, let me ask you: Who was in charge of this election? God Almighty! He puts the rulers in place. And do you know what His Word says? Proverbs 21:1 tells us, "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases."

I would think that goes for presidents, as well.

President-elect Obama is on my prayer list. And I hope he is on yours, too. I'm praying that he will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ truly as his Savior. And in doing that, whether God draws his heart to His own or not, He will surely draw my heart closer to His. He will surely find me on my knees more each day. He will surely continue to reveal Himself to me as I seek His face. And so, though it's not the outcome I hoped for, I will be content.

Yes Rebecca, you are right about this. It will be a hard time but we do need to pray for those that God has placed in authority over us.

I'm so glad you wrote this. I was thinking of writing something like this, but since I "prewrite" my blog, I didn't.

God is still God, and God is in control.
