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.
