Unsettled...

As Hubby and I sat last night glued to the television watching the results come in, I couldn't help but feel a wave of unsettling emotion come over me. I'm not exactly sure what it is, because like so many others I was not in love with our Republican candidate...however, I can't help but think that for our country, built on God's foundations and mercy for us, McCain was the better candidate. I'm not sure if it's his stance on abortion, his financial plan, or his promises that I can't help but think will never be accomplished as he says they will. All of these just leave me unsettled and worried about where our nation is headed. I'm sure in the coming days, the unsettled feeling will begin to weaken...but I have strong doubts that it will every fully go away. I must just continue on and have faith that God's will will still be accomplished, even as things seem so uncertain. As so many others have said, the time has now come for us to begin praying for President Elect Obama and the decisions he will make in the next 4 years. I have no doubt that God will continue to bless America...IF, we turn to Him and bless Him. Our government and elected officials always need the prayers of God's children...maybe now more then ever.

it's really refreshing to read how many of my blogging buddies feel the same way about the election. we truly do have to remember that it is in God's hands.

My friend Tracy said it best this morning - how God hasn't exited his throne because of the election results. My peace comes soley from Him and I can rest knowing that He's in control. I'm joining you in prayer - Obama, our nation and us need it! (o:
