Election

I really hope i'm wrong.



I can't stop feeling like we should all be in mourning.



Yesterday, i just kept asking God to have mercy on us.



Last night, James and i watched in horror as the electoral votes added up on the side that we feel sure will mean big and horrible changes for the history of the United States, the nation that we love. When the outcome became obvious, we changed the channel and watched something meaningless, trying to forget for a few minutes the historical time we are in.



Like i said, i really hope i'm wrong.



God, my Father, please have mercy on our nation. Please grant the favor of revelation and the mercy of repentance on this land and on Your people.



My heart is in quiet mourning today.



I find peace in knowing that my God is in control. No matter what happens in our nation, in our land, God is my Father, and He is in control.



I already see God's hand working in that i am compelled to pray, to cry out for mercy for the American people. The scripture where God says that "if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14) And i remember that it is on the "His people" to save "their land." It's not on those who are not His people to repent. It is on those who are His people to repent. Then it's on me.



I'm not going to apologize for my point of view on this. Anyone who voted or believes differently on this one has probably already stopped reading. I just look at history, and i see a giant repeat of multiple nations before us....on many different levels. Just because so many people like our leader-to-be doesn't mean i'm wrong. There are many nations, who in the last 100 years have endured very hard times because of the actions of leaders who were able to gain the favor of the people for a while.



I will not speak ill of our president-elect. The Bible says that God puts men in power. I will warn whoever reads this that the months and years to come will likely be very troublesome. Perhaps more than any of us realize. Please pray.




Father God, please have mercy!




Again, i hope i'm wrong.
