God is in Control

I will not post particulars about the election, nor will I share who I voted for.

What I will say is that I have grown to loathe politics.

I think that people start off with good intentions when they begin their climb through the political ranks.

Somehow, the demands of trying to please so many groups of people becomes too much, and those in office give in to the temptation to blur the lines of what they originally stood for.

This makes elections difficult as candidates sell their souls to the devil, so to speak.

Their allegiances to various groups winds up bogging them down in rhetoric that makes them lose face and credibility in others’ eyes.

I am pretty much what you would call naive as far as politics goes.

I don’t understand the ins and outs of financial and foreign policy issues.

I don’t really understand such things as illegal immigration, although I am a naturalized citizen.

Wealth, poverty, and taxes…all I know is that these things are a part of life.

As a teacher, I deal with folks from every realm.

I don’t discriminate.

I try to forge relationships so I can fill in the gaps for these amazing children.

In other words, politics takes a back seat to everything else in my life.

I can’t say that I trusted either candidate in this presidential election.

That’s sad, is it not…that I can’t even trust the person who is supposed to be the figurehead for the country I am a citizen of?

Yeah.

My one comforting thought is that God is in control.

I put my trust in Him, for I am but a temporary resident of this earth.

My citizenship is in Heaven, and I’d rather place my trust in God, who doesn’t speak out of both sides of His mouth…whose words are always the same…whose IS the moral code that our man-made laws are built upon.

I love the words of the song below.

Read the words as the song plays and place your trust in God.

God is in Control – Twila Paris

This is no time for fear
This is the time for faith and determination
Don’t lose the vision here carried away by the motion
Hold on to all that you hide in your heart
There is one thing that has always been true
It holds the world together
God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know Oh,
God is in control, oh God is in control
History marches on
There is a bottom line drawn across the ages
Culture can make its plan oh, but the line never changes
No matter how the deception may fly
There is one thing that has always been true It will be true forever
God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know
Oh, God is in control, oh God is in control
He has never let you down
Why start to worry now?
Why start to worry now?
He is still the Lord of all we see
And He is still the loving Father
Watching over you and me
Watching over you, watching over me
Watching over every thing
Watching over you, watching over me
Every little sparrow, every little thing
Oh, every little thing, oh
God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know
Oh, God is in control, oh God is in control
Oh God is in control
Oh God is in control
