And if the polls are correct, the Democrats will be happy again after two terms of joylessness, and the Republicans will be worried that the Anti-Christ has taken up the seat of desolation.
Of course I generalize, but those are the range of emails I've received regarding this day.
So maybe on a day like today, it's just good to remember who is in control here.
God is still around, doing what he does.
So perhaps we need not fret or celebrate too much, but instead remember that He didn't create us and go fishing. How could that be love?
No, his door is always open.
Mary's Song, from Luke 1 reminds us that:
His mercy extends to those who fear him,Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â from generation to generation.Â
Â He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.Â
Â He has brought down rulers from their thronesÂ
Â Â Â Â Â Â but has lifted up the humble.Â
Â He has filled the hungry with good thingsÂ
Â Â Â Â Â Â but has sent the rich away empty.
May we live like we believe it.
