I find it sad that so many claim that Republicans are racist, but yet our current President won the re-election partly because of race. He focused his campaign on specific races and ethnic groups to get the vote. I am not racist and I could care less who is what color. Sadly because of the outcome I think that if the republicans had a candidate that wasn't the color he was, we could have won. We are becoming a sick nation. Another reason to be disappointed in our country and how divided it has become.
I am a Christian and believe in Christian values. I believe in the protection of life and marriage. I believe in the morals and values that our country was founded on. And I am sad that those values are now the minority. God is being squished. My kids are most likely going to be faced with a liberal future. They are going to be faced with beliefs that go against what I am raising them to believe. Our belief is the minority. If what the Republican party stands for can't be won after the last four years, I'm not sure it will ever be won. Heartbroken.
I was convinced on Wednesday that Gods return is near. Hopeful that he will come and take us to Heaven and we will be in a place that I can't even describe because words can't do it justice.
I received a forwarded email from a friend who's pastor sent their congregation a letter. I think Jeff Wells nailed it! Not only did a huge sense of peace come over me as I read the letter, but I realized I was focusing on all the wrong things. I am coming back to being hopeful. Refocusing my thoughts, my anger, and my frustration. Praying now that because of this outcome, more people will come to know Jesus. Praying for our leader whether I agree with his beliefs or not. And I am trying not to loose sight that God wins in the end. I am to pursue Him and others with love, no matter what they believe. May we be known for having hearts of love. And may we remember that only the power of God will bring a break though, not our elected officials.
Here is the letter I received:
