The Sunday Message

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Are you happy, sad, sick at your stomach, full of anxiety, hopeful, excited, or feeling some other emotion since the Presidential election?

You’re not alone.

On Friday I gave my readers a short counseling session in the “Caught My Eye” column. You can read it HERE.

As for me, I (like many others) was shocked that Donald Trump won, but I am also interested in what he does after his victory.

Frankly, I was not happy with the choices in many races this time around.

As Christians, it’s important that whether you voted for Trump or not that you pray for him and our nation. I pray that he makes the right choices, that he helps those in need, and that he shows compassion. I pray that he picks people for his cabinet who are Godly.

It’s perfectly fine to have peaceful protests to show your displeasure with Trump and some of the things he said he would do. We’ve had protests since forever in this country, so I expected to have them whoever won.

With both candidates getting about 60 million votes (with Clinton getting about 500k more), there are bound to be disagreements in this country.

First, I tell you to pray for all people, asking God for what they need and being thankful to him. Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God.1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NCV)
