Not my will, but Thine...
"...there's no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God."
It's late, and we already know who won the next presidency.
It's seemed like natural foreshadowing the past couple days to substitute the name "America" for "Assyria" as I've read through the short book of Nahum... (If you try this exercise, don't give up in the middle!)
The peoples' choice is not my choice, but okay, Lord, You are God and I am not. You've put me in this position of surrender before, and You were faithfully full of surprises then... Your ways are higher--much higher!--than mine... Thank You for staying in control and implementing YOUR perfect plan.
(Note: If you viewed this blog in its original form you will notice it's now changed. This morning the Lord convicted me that while it was a little catchier with my tongue-in-cheek thoughts, my attitude was out of line. It reflected resignation but not true surrender to Him. I apologize.)
