THE END IS NEAR! No, but seriously… This time tomorrow we will (hopefully) know who the next president will be. And I couldn’t be more excited.
As a reporter, it’s been my job to consume and cover the political process for the last year and a half.
When I became a journalist, I gave up my right to share my opinion, so this is not one of those posts.
Of course, voting is important. I hope you have already or are doing so today – But Christians keep forgetting one tiny thing about this momentous occasion – God’s got it.
On both sides of the aisle, I’ve seen more negativity and discourse than ever before. Stress levels are high. Families are fighting. And over something the creator of the universe has in his hands.
As Christians, we strive to give everything else to God, why is it so difficult to give the outcome of the election to him? Because guess what? He already knows who will win. That person, whether or not it’s your candidate, will have been placed there by God.
I get it, emotions are running high. But do me a favor and step back to breathe for a second. I’m not in control, you’re not in control, but the Lord is… And no matter the outcome, I think that’s a beautiful thing.
