I guess I’ll be a little cliche & post about the election today.
I’m thankful for an eternal perspective because no matter what happens, God is sovereign.
I used to use this as an excuse not to vote or be politically interested. But I was convicted that I can’t be politically passive just because God is in control – importantly because it’s the same way I can’t be passive about orphans, abortion & other things I’m passionate about. Also because of all the issues we have had/will have will Yura’s legal status, I really care about immigration policies & legal adoption processes.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 4:4-7
