Congratulations President-elect Obama!

Yes, you read that correctly. Now that we have done our job to pray and vote as we felt God leading us to, now we must obey and embrace the ruler God has ordained for us. We may agree or disagree with his beliefs on issues. That is not relevant. Regardless of what we personally think about our president to be, we are called to pray for him and for our country. We must make personal choices based on scripture. We must follow God first and not compromise, but we are to support our president as long he is not asking us to go against what God has said. So, I move forward with a hope and joy found only in Jesus Christ. God knows the past, present, and future. He sees the big picture that we cannot. We must trust that God knows what He is doing, that He is has ultimate control. We are to fear God not man.

I also have to say, that for historic reasons, this is very exciting. To think how far this country has come in such a short time is amazing. Yes, we still have a long way to go, but wow! I did not agree with this particular black man, but the fact that a black man is now our president-elect is really incredible!

I encourage you to read Terry's thoughts about the election. I enjoyed them.
