Repentant

2 days have gone by and sometimes I still feel bad that McCain did not win the election, but I know I need to get over it.

I'm ashamed of my lack of faith. The Lord is still in control. Maybe I'm upset because for the first time ever, the candidate I voted for lost. Actually, typing that has made me realize that I'm upset because Obama is Pro-Choice, He supports stem cell research (which I feel is selfish because we're just trying to find ways to keep us alive longer), and I feel our healthcare system will suffer with his healthcare plans. I could go on and on but I won't because this too shall pass.

I'm sorry for the negative things I have said/thought, I'm sorry for not trusting the Lord's soverignty in all this. I believe that the God who helped me cope w/my dad's cancer is the same God who is in control today. I believe that the God who healed my broken heart and has helped me overcome many obstacles is the same today as he was back then. My God is unchanging, he is in control and he never lets go. I choose to put my hope in him alone.


My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Mayra....hang in there. i'm sure not one of us had 100% of our ideals represented by the results on tuesday, but our biggest security is in the fact that the one that holds all of this madness in his hands has our best interests at heart. find comfort in that. take care.
