Good Morning, God!
So, our Great Political Tug of War is officially over. Thank You for making it CLEAR to me that I was to accept the result — trusting in You and Your Grace and Love.
Of course, You made that extra clear to me because exactly 50 years ago as a 17 year old, I reacted to the 1956 election loss with great anger and an act of Heart Hate. Caring DEEPLY about a result — caring deeply about having our own Right Way — makes us so vulnerable to the evil of hate. Certainly I was. Well, I still am. So I appreciate Your Protective Warning. I am focusing instead on Vaclav Havel’s quote about Hope.
[Hope] is not the conviction that something will turn out well,
but the certainty that something makes sense,
regardless of how it turns out.
That is how I see my HOPE of our coming together for a country that talks together and works together. With Your Help, I will not give up on that hope.
