Thoughts for our Journey (updated monthly)

Rev. Dave Carlson

Nov. 8 is election day.  It seems certain that no matter who is elected, nearly half the country will not be wholly satisfied or extremely confident in our new president.  Author Max Lucado published a blog on Oct. 11 predicting what it will be like for us on Nov. 9.  “Another day of God’s perfect sovereignty.”  Of course, he’s right.

Lucado points to how God in the Old Testament shaped and renewed the minds and hearts of world leaders, people like King Cyrus, Nebuchadnezzar and the like.  He cites Proverbs 21:1 (NCV), “The Lord can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases.”  Amen – may it be so.

And may God director, shape and renew our hearts and minds.  No doubt, people in your family – both your faith family at church and your family at home – have been and will be greatly affected by the course of this election.  May we be open to setting aside our fears and all the divisiveness of the presidential campaign, and instead, put our trust in the Lord.  Only then can we move forward with hope and vision.

Time will tell what type of a leader we have in the days and months and years following the 2016 Presidential Election.  But even more so, time will tell what type of a person each of us is.  As people of faith, we are called to uplift and share with one another the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.  Let us all help each other live up to that calling, and let us hold our elected officials to such a standard.  They represent us, and we represent Christ.  The better we do our job, the better they will do theirs.

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Dave
