I found myself in the last couple days thinking "I thought you were smarter than that" or "not surprised".
I voted for who I felt God was telling me to vote for and how He wanted me to vote. I'm glad it's over, and as I am called, I will pray for Obama. I will pray that God call after him so loudly, He can't help but answer, that he will be at the throne on his knees bowing to Jesus. That the cross will mean so much to him that he can't help but change the way he thinks, the way he acts, and it will change how he makes decisions.
I also know that I have ~3.5 years to pray for God to rise up a leader. One he will call into great service. There were a lot of young people who voted this time around... and I expect that to be the trend. So, we've (Youth Ministries) got a lot of work to do. We've always had a lot of work to do, to save souls, to save lives, not us but to lead them to Jesus. I've be on my knees, I'll be at the throne of Jesus, the cross will mean so much to me that it will be how and why I make decisions. It will change the way I think and the way I act.
Change starts with me.
Love starts with me.
Jesus is the reason for it all.
Psalm 31:2 Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
