processing

the outcome of the election is taking time to process on all levels of government. I'm not going to talk about democrat or republican. What I do want to talk about is conviction.
When I went to the poles I voted based on my conviction steming from the word of God. What does the Lord say about the issues and then after that was established firmly in my mind what are my choices that won't go against those moral truths that not only God talks about but also what this country was founded on. Whether I thought my vote was going to be a win or a loss, I voted with the intent to please my heavenly father. ultimately I am accountable for my individual choice, and the choice I make or anyone else makes speaks very loudly what is on our hearts. I have always believed there is black and there is white, there is no grey. Yes or No, For or Against.
Now let me ask you, "Did you vote for the majority, or did you vote your convictions"?

God is ultimately in control and I have peace within me that his will always prevail and he allows only what he chooses to allow. I am grateful for my freedom of religion, and i will pray that the Lord will blwess this country and that his power is revealed.

Have a great wednsday and God Bless, Christina

I am very sad right now and am surrounded by people who are happy. The tension in my work place could be cut with a knife and I am afraid I have caused that tension. But I don't know how not to be sad right now. I want to go home and be with people who have the same convictions that I do, but God does not have that in the plans for me...so pray for me that I am strong and can somehow eliviate the tension and division that has been created at work.

Well said, Christina. I definitely voted my convictions, I prayed, and that was all I could do.
