An Election Carol

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose – Romans 8:28

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9

T’was the day after voting on Facebook and Twitter,
Some people are gloating while others are bitter.

Some see the election as a positive trend
While others lament our society’s end.

The boasting and grumbling will get pretty bad,
In my mind it’s worse than political ads.

So keep some perspective, and please don’t forget
That God’s still in charge and He’s not finished yet.

The Bible extols us: be strong and not scared,
For wherever we go, God is already there.

In Him, all things work together for good
And align with His purposes, just as they should.

So win, lose or draw, God still has a plan,
To give hope and a future to every man.

Stay strong in the Lord, His love knows no end.
We’ll need it in two years when we go vote again.
