I’m voting for Jesus

Tomorrow is it.  Tomorrow will determine who will lead this country — and in which direction we’ll go.

I’m ready for it be over.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve researched.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve debated.  I’ve argued.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve done what I could to stand up for my personal convictions.  Now, I’m ready to see God move.

I’m tired of division.  I’m tired of arguing.  I don’t care who you are and what you believe and how much you disagree with my views.  I’m ready to love you.  For better or for worse.  This is America.  And neither of us want to see everything we’ve fought for go down the drain.

You know who I’m voting for this election? Jesus.  I want His righteousness and justice to reign in this country again.

Yes, I pray for a lot of things, but that’s what I really want.  Of course we want a President who’s going to protect our country.  But the strength and wisdom of a man will always fail.  Only God can defend us against our foes – for they are many.  Only God can bring our economy out of shambles.  He’s the One that can give us creative insight, new inventions, supernatural wisdom.  That’s what we need.  As much as I support our troops, risking their lives, fighting with such bravery in courage over there in Iraq — they cannot defeat terrorism.  They cannot scatter our enemies.  But God can.  That’s Who needs to reign in this country.  No man or woman can solve the problems we are facing.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.   –Isaiah 9:7

Regardless of the outcome of this election, will you commit with me to hand this great country back over to the One who established America as the country we love?  Will you commit with me to pray for our President?  Will you grit your teeth and lay down your precious opinions (trust me, I know how hard it is) to come together and unite?

The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.

Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.

Fire goes before him
and consumes His foes on every side.

His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples will see His glory.     –Psalm 97

    What a coincidence! That’s Who I’m voting for too. Well I would if I could! This post is just wonderful. It sums it all up. It’s a glorious conclusion to your series of posts about the election. I love those verses too. They are so powerful. May justice reign throughout the earth. May His rule prevail in your land.

    AwakeningtoLove: I am immensely grateful for your prayers for this country! My heart is heavy today… but also hopeful for tomorrow’s outcome. I have to hang on to this: “Does anything restrain the LORD from saving by many or by few?”.

    Monica- Paper Bridges: Thank you for stopping by! You’re welcome here anytime :o)
