This is getting ridiculous


Obama hasn't even been the president elect for 24 hours yet, and already christians around the world are mourning the death of a nation. I mean come on people. Chill out. Did God fall off His throne?????? I don't think so. Are we forgetting what was said in Romans 13:1-2?

"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."


God has allowed him to win this seat, and we should pray for and support him. I'm sick of all the "doom and gloom". Don't get me wrong, I didn't vote for him, and I am not defending his beliefs. but what about our beliefs, is our faith so tied to this nation, that we would say the world is over because the man we voted for wasn't elected. God is still in control. God has a plan. We should not hate Obama, or even bash him. We should not live in fear. So this man believes in things that are not Gods heart, God is still in control. Our country is in financial turmoil, God is still in control. So all the doom and gloom should stop. The hateful comments and snide remarks should stop. Instead fall to your knees. Pray. Pray for wisdom and strength for Obama, pray for peace. How will the lost be reached if we as christians are spewing hatred towards a leader that God allowed to win. Where is our faith, our courage, our hope? is it in Obama, or the stock market? The answer should be that it is in the Lord. He is bigger than this country, if it falls, He will still be in control. We will still be safe in His arms. For encouragement read Psalm 91.
And remember the scripture:
Proverbs 21: 1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.

Trust in the Lord, because He does not make mistakes. Pray for our nation, Pray for our leaders, Pray for our unborn, and Pray for our troops. God did NOT fall off his throne last night.

Way to go Sarah! You said it well. Yeah I’m upset he won but he is now going to be our leader and we must pray for him. God is in control and the world is still turning. He won and there isn’t anything we can do to stop it or change that. We must continue to seek God and follow him.

Thanks for posting this Sarah. After all the horrible comments last night I was starting to wonder if I was the only one that felt this way.

Sarah for me, it isn't about not liking Obama, although I don't!!! But it's more about I'm sad that so many people were so concerned about what obama "says" he can do that they voted for him not looking at the big picture. I'm more disturbed by the people I live in a society with than the President. Which has always been true, but it's just more now. I'm not saying that there weren't some people that made an educated vote about Obama and those that did I'm Okay with. At least they voted for what they truly thought was right, But I have a problem with all the uneducated people that just voted for him becuase he's a minority, or he's going to lower taxes, or give them more freedom...whatever... Becasue really this isn't the case

Brandie,
I understand what you are saying about uneducated voters. It aggravates me. but what is done is done, we cannot dwell on the past for we are not promised tomorrow, so why waste time worrying about the past or the future? Now is time to believe that God really does know what He is doing.

Brad Shull said...

Its so hard for me to understand why Most Christians Hate Obama so much. It seems most are taking this personal. I am a Christian and I don't think that way at all.

I just don't get it.

Uneducated or not, everyone gets the right to vote. I am proud that so many did yesterday. Way to go America!

Sarah, your words are good, correct and I agree with the overall message. For some, I'm sure they're even timely but some people need a few moments to grieve .. and that's okay. It will pass, but in the meantime it doesn't mean they won't pray for the president-elect. Unlike you, I'm hearing more encouragement than bitter or sour remarks, which is .. encouraging. You're a good writer and I look forward to more posts. Give that cutie-patootie a hug for me. It doesn't seem like it's been a whole year. =] Blessings. ~Betty

I have heard no positive remarks from some people....it is crazy on my facebook. people are really freaking out, and are being very negative.

Lol, I find it funny that Christians are so worried about the end of the world anyway. Because, and I might be wrong here, wouldn't that be a good thing for us. I mean, not only do we get that whole, 1000 years of peace thing, but, and this one is big, admission into heaven. It seems to me that Christians should look forward to this kind of thing.

Rebekah said...

Amen, Sarah!!! And I'm so glad to find your blog!!!

Pipers Mom said...

John,
I love you!!! I agree with you. LOL!!

Lolly said...

Good job of putting it all in perspective, Sarah!

Sweetie said...

Great stuff Sarah! I agree, let's pray for our country and our leaders!

Jerri said...

Sarah, you are a great writer! And I totally agree with you. This isn't the end of the world and he is NOT the antichrist!
Gary and I were talking about this tonight. We are not Republicans. We are not Conservatives. We're pilgrims...not of this world...just passing through. All we need to do is obey His voice and be faithful to vote and do our part. This is not going to shake my world!

Zanna said...

Your definitely right. We should be praying for our leaders. LOVE YA!!!
