God Bless the President!

Yes, the first thing I asked my dad this morning was, "Who won?" And yes he said, "Obama." But that doesn't mean that I don't want God to bless him.

Now I don't usually like to talk about politics on my blog (although, if we're in person....), however I want to point out that God allowed-wait, let me rephrase that- God ordained Obama to win this election. That's comforting to me.

I know that his election doesn't mean good things for America. I know that we all might be in a tight bind in the near future. I know that this could spell disaster.

However, I'm comforted to know that this is the man God has given America to lead us now. I'm not worried (truly!). We have an awesome (I don't use that word lightly. It means giving glory to God and that is the way I use it) God, who certainly knows what's best for us.

Does it mean that we as the church will be persecuted? Possibly. Does it mean that terrorists will have greater freedoms in our country? Maybe. Does it mean we will become a socialistic society? Probably.

But God will give us the grace to trust in Him and stay fast in Him. God has given us this president and so I say,

"God Bless the President!"



  1. Thank you....

    I've been feeling sad, and angry. But you are right!! God is still there!


  2. Amen, sister! (and you really are my sister ;-) While I feel the same way, reading this post really encouraged me. Isn't it wonderful to know that God is in control?

    Much love,
