Barak and Roll

I’ve always been a good Republican – I’ve always voted Republican and have been happy and honored to do so. I have very solid moral convictions that have compelled me to vote a certain way all my life. With this being said, I can not lie and say that I was sad last night to see the news that our nation had overwhelmingly voted for Barak Obama.

He is inspiring and an amazing communicator – none of you could say otherwise. (well, you could I guess, but that would just be silly) This is a dream fulfilled for many, many people. The election of Obama is a great testament to how far we have come as a nation and I am honored to call this country home. I desperately want there to be truthful reconciliation between us – not just between black and white – but between republican and democrat. Without this, we can’t even start to fix some of the huge issues that we face.

Even though President-Elect Obama doesn’t hold all of the same moral beliefs that I do, I will still support him and pray for him daily. I believe he can be a positive force for change in our nation. If I trust God, I can believe nothing else. So many of you are twittering and posting blogs about trusting in God – and if we truly trust in God then we have to trust that He allowed Obama to be elected and therefore has a sovereign plan for this presidency. The bottom line is….I trust in God – not in Barak Obama or John McCain – and that brings so much relief and peace to me.

My prayer is that the church will support – with all of our hearts – our new president. I don’t mean that we support initiatives that go against our moral beliefs, but that we support him in prayer and in striving for true unity in this nation.
