It is over (and just beginning)

7 Nov

Anyone else ready for the next election season?  Man, I cannot wait.

But seriously, I am glad that it is over.

While there are a lot of disappointed, unhappy, and even scared people out there, I am not one of them.  My hope is that all of those people can all rally behind our new president and have the character to support and pray for him even if you did not vote for him.  He is our president for the next four years (at least) and it is going to be a different term than the last.  I think we can all(or most) agree that the time for change has come…

There have been a lot of Christians who are upset or whatever about people saying that they are “hopeful” or talking about “hope” in our new president…When you hear people talking about “hope” in President-elect Obama, we must remember that this hope is different than our hope in Christ.  We can have have hope in earthly things, and even people.  We know that there is a chance that we will be let down, because we did not vote for and elect a savior, but a president.

Our hope in Christ is a hope that is not shaken because we know that he will not let us down…tand the same cannot be said for the hope that we have in people or in a government.

But let me say that it is OK to be hopeful about the change that is coming…I know I am .
