Congratulations to all our newly elected officials and to those who retained their seats
“who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity.” 2 Timothy 1:9 (NASB)
By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
By the time you read this article, we would have elected a new president.
Is it over or is this the beginning of a long drawn out process that is sure to drag this country father apart if we are led by leaders who are nasty personified.
This election could pull us further apart than any other time in history.
I can think of a whole lot of analogies and allegories, the majority of which exceed the PG13 rating, to entertain myself with trying to describe the messiness of this election.
One would even dare to compare this election to choosing the lesser of two evils. And I do believe that the only way to give a better understanding to that is to exhibit of one of those traits yourself.
I know personally that I have been lied to and lied on during this election for no other reason than to discredit their opponent in hopes that I would not research their half-truths, which honestly turn out to be a boldface lie.
The opportunity will present itself for this lie to resurface; that’s just the way politricks are.
I don’t know which is worse: to be taken for granted or to be taken for a fool.
This election has left a nasty taste in the mouth of many people. This bad taste has drowned out and almost washed away the sensational flavors of this country. It’s a taste of distrust. When I was a Teen we used to sing this limerick in the tune of Please Don’t Leave Girl. “I know your breath is stink and I refuse to lend you my Scope. If you have to beg please for my Listerine I don’t mind cause you need it more than me. Not a sip not a swallow but the hold darn bottle.”
America can use a good ol fashion mouthwash.
I know in reference to the saying, “that it always gets the darkest just before the dawn” and I truly do understand and believe that “this too shall pass”. I just believe there are enough of us who can hold on and believe that God is still in control no matter what.
I’m sure when the shoe was on the other foot and there were people of a different hue and a dissimilar attitude who believed that there would never be a Black man elected to the president of this country, and I’m sure they voted as such. And now here we are and I’m sure there are lots of people who believe that a woman would never be the president of this country. However, I certainly believe that God has the final say so. So it is in that vein that I am willing to except the leadership that has been put in place to lead us, no matter how many lies may have been told.
I know I have to do my part in holding those accountable in leadership. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord Than to trust in man. Psalm 118:8 (NASB)
Dear God as you give us our daily bread, we pray that Your will allows us to grow into Your worthiness, teaching us to “Trust in the Lord with all our heart And do not lean on our own understanding.” Amend.
