Election 2012

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28

Before anyone reading this starts to misconstrue the purpose of this post, let me first say that I am not about to endorse a candidate or give my personal political views here on this blog.   

It has been said that this presidential election is the most crucial and important election of our time.  Having friends on all sides of the proverbial political fence, I have learned to keep my political views private.  Well, private in the sense that I’m not going to post them here!

We have less than 48 hours before this election comes to an end.  I am urging my friends to please take these next few hours and join me in prayer.  Over the last few months, I have seen some of the meanest, hate filled rants on different social medias, from both sides, and It just makes me think that instead of a balanced budget, or job creation, what this country needs most right now is Jesus.  So, please join me in praying that God’s will be done, and that God will heal our nation.  I was reminded this weekend that the results of this election will not be a surprise to God, so let us rest in knowing that we can trust in the Lord, and lean not on our own understanding.

Can you imagine what life would be like if we, the body of Christ, were as publicly on fire for HIM as we are for the political candidates we endorse?  Or the football teams we cheer for?  I pray that we can put our differences aside, and love like Jesus.  That is my prayer for this country.  Will you join me?

“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”  John 15:12
