Choosing Hope over Fear!

As you know, I was not happy about the election results Tuesday night. I did not vote for Obama. I was frustrated and upset. But I woke up Wednesday morning with relief and determination.

Relief - because this election is finally over. I feel two years of stress gone from all the events this election entailed.

Determined - to pray for our President, Congress, and our country. No matter if you voted for Obama or not, Christians are commanded to pray for our leaders.

Who knows - this may bring the Revival our Country so desparately needs!!!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says:

"if my people, who are called by my name, will 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."

I think we can all agree that our Country needs healing. I believe if Believers would do this and pray for the leadership of our country, we will see the CHANGE our Country really needs!

So let's band together. Put away our despair. Put away our fear. Let's choose hope! Hope in the Lord. Because we all know He is the only one to bring real change!

Join with me and be committed to pray for our future President, our outgoing President and our present and future leaders of this country. Let's see God do an amazing thing in the United States of America!

What an beautiful comment you left yesterday for me. You are so right. It is time to pray for our nation.

This election didn't take our God by surprise. Nothing touches our lives that isn't first sifted through his righteous hands of love. What a blessing that is.

I need to remember not to ever write a post moments after election results! ;O)
