Election Day Post - Talk about Comfort!!!

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.

And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."
~ John 14:27-29, NKJV ~

This is kind of ironic. In fact, if you are a person who tends to laugh at irony...you may find this next thought really funny. Perhaps you should put your coffee down so you won't spill that precious life source of caffeine.

This election day post is written by a non-citizen. That's right! I am Australian by birth and live in the USA by immigration.

With that said, my perspective of elections is quite different.  But here is what I think it a worthy thought to keep in mind.

Yes, this election will impact insurance coverage for our children and families.
Yes, this election will impact the schooling options and effectiveness for our children.
Yes, this election will have far-reaching impact on how we raise our children and our children with special needs.

I cannot vote because I am not a citizen. So, in one sense, I feel vulnerable and completely at the mercy of the citizens of this great country to choose for me. It does not mean that I am fearful simply because Jesus left a very encouraging message for me and for you.

Jesus left us Peace.
His Peace.
The peace that belongs to Him...he left with us.

The result of this peace brings about the effect of 'our hearts not being troubled'.

You know, that ability to take a deep breath, the absence of a twisted stomach or wrenching hands.

Whichever news channel you receive the news on tonight...remember...Jesus is coming back.

Be encouraged!
