The two main presidential candidates have made so many of us feel so disgusted that we don’t even want to vote, or put us in a dilemma as Christians, knowing we can’t vote for Hillary, but should we really vote for Donald Trump? It is 3 a.m. as I sit here at my computer grasping for some words of wisdom to make us feel better about casting our votes.
Did you watch the debate last night? It was mostly a train wreck. Donald was more in “Trump fashion” than in the first debate, and there were times I quit listening, but I ventured back.
It is our responsibility to vote, my mind will not change on that. But watching the two of them last night unnerved me a little. As a Christian, I could never vote for Hillary, but even if I wasn’t connected to Christ, I don’t believe I would ever vote for Hillary. So I will vote for Trump, and I’ll trust God. In my quiet time with God, before Trump was even the presumptive nominee, and well before I ever thought *I* would vote for Donald Trump, I believe the Lord whispered to my heart that he was going to use Mr. Trump in a “key position.” I am now hoping that key position is not to get Hillary elected. Even so:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
I experienced a whirlwind of emotions while watching our two choices debate…if we really call that debacle debating. I know the other choices on the ballot are not viable choices, because ultimately, voting for a third party candidate not make a statement, nor will it change the fact that either Hillary or Donald Trump will be our next president. The thought crosses my mind that we draw nearer to God when faced with adversity.
We’ve prayed…and prayed. Most of us will continue to do so, I know. I wish I had a wittier post to share. Welcome to my conflicted Monday.
