This one turned into a little rant...

Blah. That's my mood.

I had a post halfway written about election stuff....but I deleted it.

People, I just didn't want to talk about it.

But, I can't help it.

You probably won't be surprised, but I'm disappointed with the outcome. I'm a little dumbfounded by what people have overlooked in a person, in facts, in order to gain what exactly? Do they even know? "Change"? The legalization of things that God deems wrong?

What's the logic? 'yea, God says ____ is wrong, so let's elect someone who will let us do it legally'.

Duh people...it STILL won't be 'legal' in the eyes of God...pat yourselves on the back for being able to break God's laws...HIS punishment will be a lot more harsh than the watered-down punishment we have. (someone please tell me what prison is really like...because I'm imagining 3 squares a day, a place to workout and internet access...hmmm...)

Ah well...the election is over.

It will be an interesting four years, to say the least.

Interesting to see what kind of 'rights' and laws will be passed with flying colors. It scares me...

It's in God's hands. He has allowed this for a reason...I must trust in Him.

I hear ya! I am so sick of all the junk mail and commercials and guess what. I have the entire season of Amazing race that I havent watched or Greys anatomy, so I am going to have to fast forward threw those darn things STILL. I am not happy with the outcome and then I caught myself thinking,well only two more years and we can start all over again. WHAT I dont want to start all that back up! whats wrong with me. hehe. As scared as I was over what if "he" won, I do feel peace today because there isnt anything I can do except make my home a peaceful safe place for our family to learn and teach each other "gods" truths. To be safe and happy as a family. Maybe this is what I needed to kick it up a notch at home......... no, we are doing good. Not sure why this is the out come. But I do feel peace. I love my family and I have good friends. (And bloggy friends) that believe the same as I. Have a great evening.

♥ I'm so glad it's all over... I'm scared what "changes" will happen over the next 4 years and in those 4 years I think there's going to be a whole lot more praying going around in this country...

It scares me to see the direction in which this country is going. I know God has a plan and that does reassure me.
Obama was right about one thing, I will be clinging to my God.

Brittany said...

I am glad it's over, too. I am sad. VERY sad. I am just holding onto the fact that God is in control, and only HE knows what the future holds. He knew this was going to happen, and He has a plan within the whole situation. And I am just going to pray and love the Lord with all my heart, and it will be OK! :)

What it shows me is how easy it will be for the Anti-Christ to sweep to power. Once the main stream media wants you in - you be in; and it matters not your lack of experience or radical ideas and associations.

I am fearful of the next 4 years. It should be interesting to see how it all plays out. It scares me more how many people he and his campaign fooled!! Are that many Americans that guilible?

Trust is God -- that is all there is to do now. Ohh and lots and lots of praying :)

Jen said...

I know how you feel. I felt like going off on a little rant myself. However, on the day of the election I just had to smile because I know who is really in charge, no matter who is president. I know what truth is and I can teach it to my children. Every time I feel fearful I have to remind myself that God is not about fear. There are so many instances where he tells us to "fear not." God is about love and we can feel that love in the darkest of times if we will let Him in our lives. Challenges and trials make us turn to Him and maybe that's the lesson we all need to learn. Love your thoughts!

Yep! I'm right up there with ya. I'm in mourning over the elections (and also because my uncle passed away). I'm not convinced either candidate was the best one for the country. I sure hope all those "great" things they mention come to pass, but I am a little skeptical. After all, let's not forget that the past two years the congress has been controlled by Democrats and it doesn't seem to have made a difference. Nothing would make me happier than to be completely wrong about the new leadership. But now with complete control they have a chance to really do what they promised and make the country better. Let's see what happens. There can be no excuses in the end, though, if it doesn't work out.

Fear is not from God.
We have the incredible
responsibility and command to teach our children about God.
He will give us the strength and wisdom to do it all we need do is ask.
I'm doing alot of asking!!!!
Pray for our country and our president....he needs it : (

I have been praying harder for this country and for our leaders harder in the last two days than I ever have in my life.

I think I will be adding the country to my prayer list permanently.

JMBMOMMY said...

For me I had to admit I do not pray for our country and the leaders enough--sad that it takes so much public attention to get me to pray. I may not like the outcome but I also do not like the reactions and slandering that so many Christians have been doing over the past few days. I am not sure which is worse..to see the lost go for a leader that stands for so many Godless ways or to see Christains show so little love towards the lost. I'll be glad when all the negativity goes away--it test me in BIG ways.

My prayer is that the country stays tuned in to the political processes and make their voices heard. Perhaps this election has been/will be the impetus needed to get people involved instead of being content and apathetic.

Lady Why said...

I have been on election overload myself and I'm just sick over the outcome. I don't want to see the news or read a paper. I think I need to decompress, ask the Lord to give me peace and prepare for the next four years. I'm afraid it won't be pretty! :-)
