The Soveriegnty of God

I would never call myself political. In any sense of the word. Politics and the lies and deceitfulness and the forked tongues are so discouraging to me. However, I voted. And as the returns came in, I didn't win or lose yesterday. I just have a new president.

I came across an article today from Relevant Magazine. I don't know anything about this publication but the article by
Roxanne Wieman, to which I was pointed, summed up the election results perfectly for me. This article hit the nail on the head, as far as I'm concerned. Here's an excerpt that I could have written, if I were a writer, that is:

"So many of us—members of the widely contested “young evangelical voters”—were divided about this election. Not just as a group, but even in our own hearts. I know which candidate I chose, but it wasn’t an easy decision. And, to be honest, I didn’t really care who won. I agreed with both. I disagreed with both."

Leading up to the election, I just kept reminding myself that God is Sovereign. No matter who is president, no matter which "way" Congress tilts, God is Sovereign. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. His will is what prevails each and every day. And His will is perfect.

I'll go and hang up my politics hat now,
