I went to bed before 10 PM last night, unable to face the facts of the outcome of the presidential election. I woke several times during the night with heaviness in my heart over the election of Obama. Naturally, I awoke this morning with the same dark feelings – since I had been focusing on them off and on all night.
After exercising and showering I checked my e-mail to see if there was anything urgent to take care of before having my quiet time.
I found three articles that renewed my faith and woke my heart to the next right step.
The first was an e-mail from our pastor. I’ve attached it so you can read it here: Biblical Thoughts on Elections, Leaders, and Believers
The second was reading McCain’s concession speech.
I was impressed with his humble and gracious response.
And third, my e-mail from The Presidential Prayer Team. If you aren’t familiar with them you would do well to check it out. They send weekly reminders of how we can pray for the current president.
They are also starting 77 days of prayer for President elect Obama.
This last item is what set me off in a new direction. The Lord is still in control, and we need to pray for our leaders. Please join with me in the 77 days of prayer for President elect Obama.
Leave me a comment to let me know you will be joining me in this journey, and go to this link to sign up for the 77 days of prayer.
Learning how to find joy in this journey,
I would love to have the opportunity to keep in touch with you. Please sign up to be notified of new entries and to receive my Free E-zine. (Your address will not be shared)
