I watched the Innaugural events most of today. I found myself crying a lot, not from gladness. It just welled up from my spirit. I think it would’ve been the same if Hillary was the one up there being sworn into the highest office in our land.
I didn’t feel there was a good choice for this election. I felt cynical and frustrated, like my vote didn’t matter one way or the other. I felt that the lives of “normal people” are so far removed from the “powers that be” and the celebrities, superstars, and wealthy of this world that we may as well give up and just live our lives. Yet , I did research and I did vote what I thought was the lesser of two evils.
Nonetheless , my spirit was crying today…then, I heard The Spirit speak within me, and I spoke the words right back to Him…”my hope is in You.” I do not fear. I have joy even in the midst of my doubts and sorrow….because my hope is in Him….my life is in His hands, as are the lives of my friends and family… our eternal purpose rests with His….no matter what happens….
