Exercising My Right To Vote

Yesterday was election day here. As I was researching and checking out the candidates, I really got into it. I was so excited to vote and 'cheer' on my choices!

Sadly, most of the folks I voted for didn't win (go figure), but I really enjoyed the process. It didn't take long to check out the candidates and now, when our school board makes national headlines (sigh), I know more of what's going on.

I vote when I can, but it always seems like the world is getting worse, doesn't it?

“If My people would but listen to Me,
if Israel would follow My ways,
how quickly would I subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their foes! (Psalm 81:13, 14 NIV84)

I don't really have anything profound to say, except these verses speak to me especially regarding our country's leadership. I pray our leaders will listen to the Lord and obey. Can you imagine how it'd be if these folks would obey God and not seek to please men? Wow.

how weird is this.
last night i read the wrong chapter in the psalms.

psalm 81 instead of 71. and i totally tweeted that SAME verse.


if only we would listen, God would make things a lot easier.

crazy simple.
